About The Designer
Years after my grandmother Alice Mae's passing, I had to choose what career path I wanted to pursue. It was not until I was digging through family heirlooms in my grandparent's old farmhouse, that I realized I would focus on design. I had uncovered my grandmother's fashion illustrations from the 40's and I was left feeling inspired. After earning a degree in fashion design, I went on to work with a major fashion retailer.
I realized my true calling when a friend commissioned me to create a custom wedding veil. Collaborating with her to design a piece unique and exclusive for her wedding day revealed my adoration for bridal accessories. I continued commissioned projects to create handmade bridal pieces. The passion that I developed for working with brides and creating such meaningful, one of a kind pieces influenced me to turn the hobby into a profession.
I love offering brides a unique experience when investing in an Alice & Mae piece. I will personally assist in choosing the most appropriate piece for your dress and your personal style. If you prefer a more exclusive item, I will design a piece specifically for you.
