I had the pleasure of photographing the lovely Ali, owner of Ali Nicole Bridal at her new shop located in Downtown Grand Rapids. If you’re engaged, know someone who is engaged, or if you are just a lover of fashion, you should definitely stop by and check it out. The whole Ali Nicole team is beyond sweet and I know you’ll leave there loving the whole experience!
I really wanted to bring Grand Rapids a bridal shop that was cool and fresh with unique styles you wouldn’t normally see. My vision for Ali Nicole Bridal was a modern and inviting atmosphere where brides could feel comfortable just being themselves.
Modern, Whimsical, Laid-back
The most fun thing hands down is seeing REAL BRIDES in our gowns. That’s what makes the whole journey up to this point so worth it.
I am such a home body and family girl. I could spend all my days hanging with my man and family (which includes our 3 dogs). I have always been told I’m an “old soul” and I’d have to agree.
I would say I’m a more organized version of Rachel from Friends. She always thinks with her heart. Plus she loves shopping.
Picking out my own wedding gown was so much fun and surprisingly a lot easier than I thought it would be! Being in this industry, I had definitely done my research. I had it pretty narrowed down and knew what I wanted even before we started shopping which I think helped me from getting overwhelmed. I would describe my dress as boho with a few modern surprises! Oh and also there may be more than one…
To any brides searching for their perfect wedding dress, I would say pick the one you feel most beautiful in! It is impossible to satisfy everyone, so why even bother? It’s your day after all!
