Lindsay Roberts, Bridal Consultant
Lindsay first realized her love for the fashion when her mom placed her in modeling classes during summer breaks. She was able to see first hand the behind the scenes of this exciting and fast paced industry which led her to develop a passion for fashion and how it came to be. From there, she began to sketch, immersed herself in styling jobs, and began studying Fashion at the Art Institute. During that time, Lindsay interned for Page Parkes Agency and other independent stylists gaining experience in couture fashion shows, photo shoots, and local media projects. This then led her into the world of bridal where she is most successful in working one on one with brides thanks to her supportive and personable approach. Lindsay gains great satisfaction in knowing that she helped to make a bride’s dreams come true in the most memorable of ways.
