Ivory & Beau
Everyone says it, the wedding industry is the nicest industry around! We have the opportunity to collaborate with and get to know so many wonderful people and the fabulous ladies at Ivory & Beau are no exception. A few months ago, they submitted a beautiful boho chic styled shoot and we were giddy! We could not have been more excited about their mission; providing customers with a laid-back, unique dress buying experience. This store is one-of-a-kind and so are their clients. This Savannah boutique is not for the traditional dress wearer! We had the opportunity to ask Nicole and Adrienna a few questions about Ivory & Beau. Here's what they had to say...
Why did you get into weddings?
Nicole fell in love with weddings and event design after she discovered wedding blogs and fell in love with everything about weddings. After that, Nicole worked for a wedding planner and purchased the company Fall of 2012. At the same time, Nicole and I both worked at David's Bridal previous to Ivory and Beau. I've worked in different areas of bridal since 2009 starting with creating and designing bridal accessories. While working at David's we collaborated on a styled shoot and while driving to St. Augustine we discussed opening a new bridal boutique in Savannah. A few months later it happened.
What are your goals for Ivory & Beau?
We want to provide brides a creative and relaxed space to find their dress. We think wedding dress shopping should be fun, not stressful! It's about finding a dress you feel beautiful in, and that is the most important part. We wan't to promote creativity in weddings, from colored dresses, to handmade details!
What is your favorite part of your job?
We love getting to meet new people and making their dreams come true! We love when a bride comes to us and is open for something different. We love taking her vision and making it come to life, in both her dress and the wedding planning.
Anything else we should know?
We love cats, dinosaurs and hot glue guns and have frequent dance parties! We love to keep things entertaining and fun because we think everything about weddings should be fun!!
