I couldn’t agree more. Hello! my name is Colleen Moore, designer and owner of White Orchid Bridal.

Often I get asked how I got started designing and creating bridal gowns and accessories. I like to think it had something to do with my first love growing up, ballet. As a child I fell in love with the art form, and even more in love with the pretty costumes. I would frequently sneak into the back of the small dance studio I studied at to sneak a peak at all the pretty costumes hanging upside down, and boxes of overflowing fabrics. I was entranced and fascinated. 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 was headed. Creating for bridal satisfied my desire to work with all the fabrics and materials I fellĀ in love with as a child. I started White Orchid Bridal in 2004 and opened my first boutique in 2008.
