I am from Budapest, Hungary but I lived most of my adult life in New York and then Nashville with a never-ceasing love for everything bridal and most of all, bridal gowns! I have worked in the bridal industry for over five years and have had the privilege to work alongside one of the most amazing European designers Anita Benes, the talent behind the gorgeous Daalarna Couture brand. In 2014, I met the love of my life and moved to Tampa, Florida. I searched for bridal shops in Florida as far as Ft. Meyers, Orlando, St. Petersburg, Sarasota and in the Tampa Bay area that would offer non-traditional, chic, unique, and even hand-made bridal gowns and to my surprise, it was like trying to find a needle in a haystack! I know many of you brides resonate with this experience! I have had the dream to open a stylish bridal boutique ever since I left Hungary and when I moved to Tampa I knew the time has arrived! I immediately took the opportunity to fill this gap in the Tampa Bay area and have brought forth The BRIDE located in historic Ybor city in the most gorgeous historic building I could ever dream of! I am beyond excited to be introducing the Daalarna Couture brand to Florida brides, as well as other cutting-edge, fashion-forward designers such as the one-and-only Emmy Mae.
I am so thankful for being able to do what I love: offering stylish one-of-a-kind gowns to all of you lovely brides! What’s equally important is that at THE BRIDE we give you an exclusive and intimate experience as we whole-heartedly believe that you deserve the best of the BEST. Can’t wait to see you in our boutique and help to make your wedding dreams come true!
