Charlotte, North carolina

Whitney, is a BOSS B.A.B.E for Charlotte, NC. She is a believer, a wife, and a dog mom to a cute rescue beagle, Lucy. Whitney grew up in Florida and attended college at Western Kentucky University. Four years ago, Whitney and Lucy moved to Charlotte (not knowing a soul) for a fresh new journey! She met her husband, Matt, within a few months they got married two years later! Their New Year’s Day wedding date was exactly two years and a day from when they met!

Whitney has spent her entire career in the fashion industry focused on creating the perfect fit from intimate apparel to ready-to-wear. Her passion to move into the bridal industry all started back in 2014 when she was first introduced to Heidi Elnora and her bridal gowns. Whitney is thrilled to bring the Build-A-Bride collection to Charlotte, NC brides and help brides uncover their true beauty in their dream wedding gown!

On her days off, you can find her visiting the latest restaurants, experimenting with new recipes, trying her hand at calligraphy, or on a weekend road trip to her favorite vacation spot, Charleston, SC! She also loves relaxing and spending time with her husband and pup on their back patio enjoying their weekly tradition of Guacamole Sundays!

Whitney has always had a love affair with winter weddings and dreamed of getting married around the new year! Whitney and her husband Matt married in 2017 on New Year’s Day in an elegant, historic mansion in North Carolina. They had an intimate wedding shared amongst close family and friends. She always wanted a romantic and timeless wedding that was able to incorporate pieces of her family history. The diamond in her engagement ring belonged to her late grandmother, and the fur shawl she wore during pictures was passed down from her late great-grandmother. Matt even surprised Whitney by serenading her with a love song during the reception. Whitney and Matt’s wedding was a special day they will never forget! 

Although Whitney and Matt do not have any children yet, they have a fur baby named Lucy, a Beagle/King Charles Cavalier mix! Whitney rescued Lucy in February 2012, and she has forever been her favorite Valentine!  Matt and Whitney are both foodies and share a passion for good food and wine (Cabernet of course!). They love to travel and visit the best restaurants while on vacation. Their favorite places are Napa Valley and Charleston, SC (thankfully one is relatively close)! This year they are taking a two-week vacation to Italy for the sites, food, wine, and of course gelato! 

Whitney is over the moon about joining Heidi’s team and bringing Build-A-Bride to Charlotte, NC. It has been a lifelong dream of hers to start a business and work alongside brides helping them create the wedding dress of their dreams! If Whitney were to get married again (to Matt, of course) she would choose the Ella Grace from the Build-A-Bride collection. Ella Grace is a versatile silhouette and can pair well with so many different pieces. Her favorite (hands down!) is the Middleton top paired with Clara skirt and Miriam bow. She loves the off-the-shoulder styling and fuller skirt! Besides, when else do you have the chance to make a grand entrance in a dress that takes everyone’s breath away?
