Owner of September’s Bride in Holland, Michigan, Tami Parks, is passionate about all aspects of the bridal industry and it shows by looking inside her downtown boutique. From designer gowns, bridesmaids and mothers dresses to tuxedos and custom jewelry, the boutique has made itself a bridal destination since opening in 2007.
“I’ve been custom designing wedding gowns for over 20 years,” explains Shannon Gales, owner of Vue Designs. “The Shannon Gales Collection represents a niche in the West Michigan bridal market that has been missing for some time and I’m excited at the opportunity to bring this collection to my exclusive retailer, September’s Bride in Holland.”
Shannon credits her love and passion for textiles and fabric from early childhood. She is known for her unique ability to mend the very vintage and modern look together in one piece. One of Gales’s designs was recently featured in Pacific Weddings Magazine. The writer described the gown as “…at once vintage and very of the moment.”
Brides will have the opportunity to meet Ms. Gales in person at September’s Bride from January 31 – February 2, 2013. She will be available for personal appointments and consultations during this time. If interested, visitors are encouraged to call the boutique at 616-355-1433 or e-mail appointments@
