Meet the Designer
“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility” – Eleanor Roosevelt
I couldn’t agree more. Hello! my name is Colleen Moore, designer and owner of White Orchid Bridal.
I often get asked how I began my journey designing and creating bridal gowns and accessories, and I like to think it had something to do with my first love, ballet. As a child I fell in love with the art form, and I fell even more in love with the costumes. I would frequently sneak into the back of the quaint dance studio where I studied to sneak a peak at all the costumes hanging upside down, and all of the boxes overflowing with fabrics. I was forever entranced. By my early teens I was designing and creating many of my own costumes and headpieces.
After earning a degree in dance, I knew my passion for sewing and design was where my future lay. Creating for bridal satisfied my desire to work with all the fabrics and materials I so fervently fell for as a child. I started White Orchid Bridal in 2004 and opened my first boutique in 2008. Here’s to many more!
