Providing bouquets and whatnot for your authentically you wedding do!
I have been a fan of Etsy for a long time and I fell in love with it the moment I discovered it. I love supporting individual artisans and am an artist myself (jewelry, painting, fabric arts, floral art, decorative arts, and my favorite of all: Chinese brush painting).
In March/April 2011, I put together an Etsy Virtual Bridal Show on my blog showcasing about 150 Etsy Artists/Vendors to present couples alternatives to what is offered in traditional bridal stores. We also provide a link for people to donate to Wish Upon A Wedding, a charity that provides people with terminal illnesses with their dream wedding. In 2012 it grew in to it's own Etsy Team (Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team) and we currently have over 425 shops featured. I am so grateful to all of those shops who continue to believe in and support this effort.
As an old goth at heart and lover of unique and different weddings, it was hard to find things such as bouquets and wedding decor with those themes. There are amazing shops providing gowns and attire, but the bits and bobs are sort of few and far between. So, I decided I'd put my skills to use and open a shop where alt folks can find things that speak to what they want for their weddings.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
After a 16-year career as an event planner for the non-profit community and wedding planner, I decided to stay at home with my special needs son and work for myself. It started with the blog, Belle Memorie and continues here with my shop.
Mom- Miss you muchly
My mom was the inspiration for Belle Memorie's logo (a Rorschach ink blot that looks like a butterfly). Mom was a Marriage and Family Therapist and loved butterflies. She was my best friend, my light, my confidante, and radiated joy and compassion.
Supervisor And Quality Control
This is my kiddo in his Rok Gear (look 'em up here on Etsy) tie looking pretty darn smooth. Poot makes sure everything is "spiffy and beautiful" and that "mommy does a good job." He's my joy and reason for giving my all to what I do.
