Jul 01, 2021

Today, we wanted to take a moment to introduce you to the K&B Bridals Hagerstown team! Although there are more people who contribute to the daily operations of our Hagerstown location, such as the owners/founders and marketing team, today we are introducing you to the team that you will see each day in the shop.

 

Kim: Boutique Manager

 

 

Kim enjoys rock climbing and being outside every chance she gets. She values being with her friends and family and supporting her team. She lives with her boyfriend, Brian, and their sweet English Springer Spaniel, "Kent Dog." The best way to start a conversation with her is to ask her how her Kent Dog is doing!

 

When & why did she decide to work in bridal?

 

Kim has been working in the wedding industry since 2015. From catering, to calligraphy, to bridal gowns! She still has her calligraphy business on the side. Her true passion is helping women find the perfect gown that they feel amazing and beautiful in for their wedding day.

Kim loves overskirts! She says that they can elevate any bridal look and give you the two-in-one gown for your ceremony to your reception!

She loves Main Street Bridal. These designs are handpicked by us at the shop. We name our gowns after those that mean the most to us, including our team members at both stores! The designs cater to every bride to make them feel special with their one-of-a-kind K&B dress!

 

Her #1 tip for brides who are dress shopping

 

She always recommends coming to your appointment ready for your moment.When Kim tried on her first wedding dress at the shop, she got goosebumps — and is yet to be engaged! She says to have your favorite people with you and enjoy your appointment. We're here to not only help you find your gown, but to create the best experience for finding it. Having your people with you makes it that much better. 

 

Olivia: Bridal Stylist

 

 

Olivia is an old soul and a travel enthusiast! She loves to travel and experience new cultures. She is a former flight attendant and au pair. Olivia is a collector of unique cowboy boots! She is so crazy about them that she'd probably save them first in a fire. 

 

When & why did she decide to work in bridal?

 

Olivia started working at K&B Bridals in November 2020. Her previous job was affected by COVIÎ and she had to find something else. When Olivia was hired, she never realized how much she would grow to love bridal! It's a field that she hadn't given much thought to before, but it's now become a part of her. She has enjoyed empowering women to find that perfect gown that they will marry the love of their life in! 

 

Current favorite bridal trend

 

Olivia is obsessed with the boho trend! She also loves that vintage and unique trends are making a comeback.

 

Favorite designer

 

Olivia's favorite designer is Justin Alexander! She is especially drawn to the Lillian West line, which is a bit more boho/western. She thinks that Justin Alexander can do phenomenal custom work and that they create gorgeous gowns.

 

Her #1 tip for brides who are dress shopping

 

She says to be sure to come to your appointment with an open mind! Looking at gowns on a hanger can be tricky because you can't get a real idea of how it will look from there. Olivia always tells brides when shopping, if it sparks even just a little interest, try it! Be open to trying all silhouettes to narrow down what you like and don't like so you can feel 100% confident when you say yes!

 

Kelli: Bridal Stylist (and TikTok aficionado)

 

 

A fact you may not know about Kelli is that she is very passionate about writing! Kelli writes for a high-end luxury magazine that includes high fashion, interior design, and lifestyle. When she's not working or writing, you can find her at any local brewery hanging out with her roomies!

 

When & why did she decide to work in bridal?

 

Kelli first started at an internship in 2018 doing social media for a bridal shop back home in Tennessee. She took a little break and rejoined the bridal world back in November 2020 at K&B Bridals in Hagerstown! Kelli decided to work in bridal simply because she loves fashion and she wanted to know more about the fashion industry through the eyes of bridal. 

 

Current favorite bridal trend

 

She is LOVING cowl neck silk dresses with low, low backs. She thinks that it is so classic, chic, and sexy yet understated.

 

Favorite designer

 

She loves Justin Alexander and their sleek and classically elegant designs. That's very much her style!

 

Her #1 tip for brides who are dress shopping

 

Kelli's #1 tip is to keep an open mind!! She says that your stylist is well acquainted with the dresses and is familiar with what they look like on the body. She can't tell you how many times she's pulled in dresses that the bride has been skeptical of while it was on the hanger, but once they put it on, it's the one!

 

Morgan: Bridal Stylist

 

 

Morgan is currently engaged to her better half and high school sweetheart, Michael. They have two dogs and just purchased their first home together! They are getting married in August and Morgan couldn't be more excited! Her favorite place to be is snuggled up with her pups, binge-watching The Vampire Diaries or Outer Banks on Netflix. Some other fun facts about Morgan: her zodiac sign is a Cancer, she has a phobia of hospital needles but absolutely loves tattoos and piercings, she always has to be cleaning or organizing something, Bath & Body Works is her kryptonite, and her favorite hobby is thrifting!

 

When & why did she decide to work in bridal?

 

Morgan has always loved Say Yes to the Dress and other TV shows like it. She's always been intrigued with "that side" of the bridal and wedding industry. Being able to help a bride find her dress was so appealing to her and seemed like such a rewarding job. So, when she was on the hunt to find her own wedding dress, she came across K&B Bridals and her opportunity to step into this industry was finally there for her. As soon as Morgan saw the job listing, she almost immediately submitted her resume and the rest is history! She thinks that it is so amazing to say that she gets to be a part of someone's life moment such as helping them find their dress.

 

Current favorite bridal trend

 

Long lace trains. Morgan is a sucker for long trains to begin with. But when you can see the gorgeous lace detail gliding across the floor, it just does something to her!

 

Favorite designer

 

Sophia Tolli. She thinks that they have an amazing variety of silhouettes and styles. She says they also have this timeless elegance within their dresses that are still so perfectly crafted for the modern bride!

 

Her #1 tip for brides who are dress shopping

 

Morgan says to trust your gut! Finding your wedding dress should hold the same feeling as when you know your fiancé was your one and only. So, Morgan says when you're in your appointment, really pay attention to how you're feeling in each dress and sit in that moment to just acknowledge those feelings.
