My career began in high-end designer jewelry where I formed close relationships with many clients. I loved hearing about their engagements, weddings, anniversaries and more. I realized I had a passion for Bridal and have been a bridal consultant ever since.
My experiences include working for major designers on a team as well as running a boutique solo, which was very rewarding. I’ve learned the business inside and out and I love every aspect of it from personalized service to setting up fashion shows. But as much as I enjoyed being in charge I realized I wanted to be able to dedicate myself more completely to personalized service which is why I am thrilled to have joined Elizabeth Johns!
It’s everything a bridal salon should be: beautiful, spacious, well lit and most importantly, there’s a team of experts dedicating their services to you. As your Bridal stylist I’ll always go the extra mile for you. (Maybe even 2 miles!)
- Favorite accessory: Shoes!!!
I have been in the fashion industry for over a decade. I started by styling and helping friends with their wardrobes, and after graduating from Centenary college, went on to a career in retail, working at Charles David and Anthropology, among others.
I have always loved weddings – the planning, the dresses, and all the little details. I think there is something truly special about finding “the dress” and making a woman’s dream come to fruition. I’m so excited to be at Elizabeth Johns where the woman will enjoy the ultimate bridal experience.
In my spare time, I enjoy living a healthy lifestyle and practice yoga regularly. You can also find my hanging out with my two dogs, Leeo, a chocolate Labrador Retriever, and Henry, a Golden Retriever.
- Fashion Accessory: A handbag and shoes add personality to every look
- Fashion Icon: Nicole Richie and Grace Kelly, both inspirations and timeless.
I’ve done so many different things in my career – from advertising to fashion, mom to (most recently) manager of another high-end bridal salon. My family aside, my real love is anything to do with styling and people. (My daughters tell me I can dress all ages.)
What’s amazing about Elizabeth Johns, is how many fabulous choices there are – in all categories. I’m here to make sure you don’t get overwhelmed. I’m a good listener and advisor – together we can make your experience here fun and exciting.
- Favorite accessory: Jewelry (I’m an earring-person myself.)
- Favorite fashion icon: Jackie O. (At any age she got it right.)
I’ve been working in the bridal field for a few years now and I absolutely love it! I previously worked for Lancome and Estee Lauder as a makeup and skincare consultant. But bridal has definitely become my passion. There’s something really special about helping someone find her wedding gown. I feel honored to be there the moment she puts on that dream dress that makes her cry. (I’ve been known to get a little emotional myself.)
Ever since I can remember, I’ve found myself walking into stores, even when I’m not working, and helping girls pick out clothes. It comes naturally and i really enjoy it. I am very excited to be part of the Elizabeth Johns team. Can’t wait to help make each bridal party look amazing!
When I’m not at work I love spending time with my two dogs, my Boxer Moe and my Pit bull Joanie.
- Favorite accessory: Bracelets or bangles – the more the better!
- Favorite fashion icon: Blake Lively
For the past 10 years, I’ve been working with brides. For two years it was engagement rings. And for eight years, it’s been as a consultant at a high-end bridal salon outfitting brides and their bridal parties. I love it. I feel so lucky to play a part.
Maybe that comes from the fact that for the past 15 years I have sung professionally on stages across the country. This has guided me towards the world of fashion. Whether in costume on stage or most recently as a new bride myself, (as of November of last year!) I love the sense of art and individuality fashion creates.
- Favorite accessory: Jackets, coats, and scarves – It’s always nice to have something to wrap up in! Or any Vintage Jewelry!!!! Please!!! Hats & headpieces! Oh shoes too!! How does one choose??
- Favorite fashion icon: Sophia Loren, she is a true woman’s woman.
I love helping people look and feel beautiful! Proper fit is a must and the right style can enhance or refine your look. I’ll work with you one-on-one, shopping with you to find stylish outfits for your shower, rehearsal dinner, honeymoon and beyond – always keeping your budget in mind. We’ll chat, I’ll learn your fashion goals, taste and lifestyle so we find the perfect outfits for your event.
I also love to do closet analysis, where we comb through your closet, making sure that every piece suits your body and personality. I’ll put pieces together in a different way to create beautiful new looks with what you already own, I may suggest you retire some items, and then we’ll shop to cover any gaps in your wardrobe. Sometimes, one piece is all it takes to pull everything together so you have a complete wardrobe. Many brides love this service and treat their bridesmaids to a closet analysis as a thank you gift. Another option is to do a group session where we talk about body types, colors and the latest styles. I promise you and your friends a fun learning experience.
Custom Accessories Specialist
As a fashion designer with more than 30 years experience, I love working with our brides to design and create accessories to optimize each woman’s bridal look.
I studied fashion design in my home country of Equador, and after coming to the United States, worked with designers like Antony Lavayen, who designed for Vogue, Peggy Page Atelier, and HOMA Bridal Company.
A veil, headpiece, or other accessories are very important to enhance the beauty and elegance of a bridal gown, and to make the bride feel her most lovely. Here at Elizabeth Johns, we design jackets, boleros, and capes for brides who want more coverage for their ceremony, as well as every type of custom veil and headpiece imaginable.
- Favorite accessory: Mantilla Veils.

I began my sewing career in high school. I simply fell in love with fashion and trained in patternmaking techniques and fashion drawing. Early on I made children’s clothes, but since entering the world of bridal and special occasion dresses, I have concentrated on working with fabrics, professional cleaning and pressing the end product. I worked at Priscilla of Boston for many years, and now enjoy working at Elizabeth Johns where I work with the highest quality designers and fabrics.

My career began over forty years ago in my home country of Portugal. I apprenticed under a fashion designer and expert seamstress. I’ve had the opportunity to work with many different people throughout my career, but I am especially fond of working with brides. I’ve had the pleasure of working with brides for the past 15 years while at Priscilla of Boston and now at Elizabeth Johns. I love using my expertise to make my bride’s dreams of the perfect bridal gown a reality; which is also why I am so excited to join the team at Elizabeth Johns. The possibilities for our brides and their bridal parties are endless and exquisite.

I’ve been working in the high-end fashion industry for over thirty years. I began working as a seamstress while in Milan, Italy. After moving to the United States, I worked in many bridal boutiques in Dallas, Texas as an Alterations Department Coordinator and then made the move to the Neiman Marcus in Short Hills. After awhile my interest shifted back to bridal and worked for Priscilla of Boston for many years. Working in the bridal field has become my specialty and passion, although I also excel in couture .
I have an excellent eye for detail and will always guide my client to what makes them look and feel their very best. I continually form close relationships with my clients and exceeding their every expectation is my ultimate goal.
