Bittersweet Memories

The young ladies who work so diligently in our bridal shop come and go.....meaning they are usually college students who are seeking part-time employment while finishing their studies.  This post is in honor of those who have recently graduated and moved on with the next chapter of their lives.

Jenni Dickman - Bridal and Formal Consultant.....and Model for Church Street Bridal..!!  

Jenni Dickman - Bridal and Formal Consultant.....and Model for Church Street Bridal..!!
 

Our sweet Jenni was very instrumental in helping model gowns and organize/set up our formal shop.  She left Church Street Bridal a couple years ago after marrying her guy Robbie and moved to North Dakota as an Air Force wife.  She has since then returned to VA and the happy couple recently purchased their first new home together.  From time to time she returns to fill in when needed.  We miss her and wish her much luck.

Jordan came to us as an intern from the FACS department at Liberty University.  She quickly became an invaluable asset and was hired as a consultant.  After graduating with a degree in Fashion Merchandising she moved on to become a bridal shop manager with one of our fabulous donors.  Demetrios Bridal in Northern VA gained what we lost when she moved North.  We are proud to have had her on our team.  Good Luck Jordan…!!!

Since leaving Church Street Bridal, Alyse has been traveling abroad on a missions excursion for Liberty University.  As part of the Greater European Missions organization, she has been working in Romania for these past few months and as of our last contact….she was headed for London.  She plans to return to the states in August and perhaps even return to Church Street Bridal.  We are so proud of all her accomplishments and look forward to her safe return to us.  Be safe Alyse..!!

Kelsey Foley - Bridal and Formal Consultant - Model for Bridal Gowns

Kelsey came to Church Street Bridal as a shy young lady from the FACS Department of Liberty University.  However, once she found her niche here, the shyness went away and she became a premier consultant.  As a super organized person, she quickly took on responsibilities of keeping the shop clean, organized and was diligent in modeling our gowns that we photograph for Facebook.   She recently graduated from LU and headed to New York City for interviews with several high end salons.  At last contact, she had been offered two positions with salons in the big city.  We can’t wait to see where she lands.  Good luck Kelsey….we miss you..!!

Ally is probably going to give me a hard time for using the picture I did…..however this is how I remember her.  Happy, smiling and a bit nutty.!!  There was rarely a day she came in that she wasn’t in a good mood and always made our brides feel the same.  She was also a recent graduate of LU with a degree in Criminal Justice and has since left Lynchburg and returned to Pennsylvania to begin the next chapter in her life.  Good luck my sweet girl…..your sweet smile is missed everyday.!!
 

THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY YOUNG LADIES COME THROUGH THE SHOP....AS EMPLOYEES AND INTERNS....TOO MANY TO NAME....BUT THEY HAVE ALL LEFT AN IMPRINT ON MY HEART....I LOVE ALL YOU GIRLS.....AND MISS YOU..!!  (Love, Sheilah)
