Well Hi There!
I am Alisha.
I am a So Cal girl in my 30-somethings who loves making women feel beautiful. I am a bridal veil designer and small business.
Although I boast 10,000 brides in over 23 countries, each bride is more than a statistic. She is a name, a story, a personality, and so much more.
I am also very into: dark chocolate (the darker the better), comfy thick socks, and singing in the shower... and everywhere else.
How does an ex-paralegal become a bridal veil fashion designer and entrepreneur?
I didn’t always have this business: the hundreds of beautiful brides, the stunning lace accessories gracing rooms of my home, and the love of entrepreneurship.
In fact, less than a decade ago you would have found me in my "business casual" pencil skirt and button down blouse sitting in the stain glass high-rise building of my corporate America job.
God‘s providence takes us down unusual pathways sometimes.
I never envisioned my life to turn out like this, but I am so grateful for His guiding hand every step of the way.
In retrospect, I probably should’ve known that...
the girl who would spend hours cutting up her Grandma's vintage wedding would one day become a bridal accessories designer.
Currently I’m probably
Sipping strong coffee (with lots of cream and sugar) in my comfy pants as I drape and play with soft fabrics and lace. All the while, I am dreaming of how it belongs to a certain bride and how this piece will in a small way reflect the unique masterpiece that she is.
Want to know what makes me excited?
Helping brides to feel beautiful and valued.
Highlighting a person's beauty in a world that tells us we are never enough. Emphasizing the strengths and the unique beauty in each bride via one-on-one interactions where I will learn a bit about their hopes, their passions, and their visions.
A few of the things I answer to...
Child of God
This is my most important identity! All else pales in comparison. I love Jesus, I love that he chooses me, and I love that he relentlessly pursues me.
Bridal Veil Designer:
I love the accessory design process, and when I'm creating something that is unique and tailored to the individual, I experience a sense of joy that is hard to describe.
Small Business Owner
I love learning from my fellow small businesses and learning how we can support one another.
I love teaching others about the beauty of designing handcrafted pieces, and I encourage my mothers of the brides to be bold enough to consider DIYing their veil! I am here to help.
Sha (friends and family)
A silly nickname that held on throughout the years. I am now proud to be called "Auntie Sha" to my adorable nieces and nephews.
