OUR STORY

My name is Tiffany Rottinghaus, I call Charles City home with my husband David, and our three sweet boys; Wesley, Grady and Ellis.  I have dreamed of owning a bridal store since I was in sixth grade.  My first taste of formalwear retail was a 'Cinderellas Closet' event I organized, when I was in High School, in my hometown of Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, collecting second hand prom dresses and then reselling them to girls looking for a more affordable option.

In college I began working at a bridal shop, eventually becoming a manager and then a buyer.  I fell in love with the entire process, but wanted another perspective of the industry.  After 5 years of working in bridal retail, I was offered a job to work for a formal-wear vendor.  So I moved to Minneapolis, and began working with bridal stores throughout the midwest.  

My love for this business has never faded, and I can't wait to see it through.  I am so honored to be able to bring this vision to life, and hope that you find it as magical as I do.  ♡
