Hey, I'm Marina, the creator behind Bridal Breeze. Since starting Bridal Breeze in 2020, I have found joy and purpose in supporting amazing women ready to open a new chapter in their lives. Today, I can't imagine my world without brides, runway shows, and nerding out with designers - but it wasn't always this way.
I worked in software sales for years and came to San Francisco for business school. My career in tech was fun, but something was missing. As a little girl growing up in a small town in Ukraine, I was always mesmerized by models strutting their stuff on the catwalk. I could spend hours watching the runway shows. That feeling stayed with me, even during my tech years. I knew that I wanted to find a way to channel my love for fashion into a meaningful career, and that's what eventually led me to create Bridal Breeze.
I seriously considered making the dream a reality after a stressful bridal dress fitting with my friend. I saw the opportunity. I knew that I could create a space where brides would feel supported, understood, and celebrated for who they are - a space filled with dresses that were as unique and beautiful as the women who wore them.
A year after my friend's wedding, I opened the doors of Bridal Breeze in San Francisco. Originally from the EU myself, I have chosen to work with talented European female designers, sharing their energy and talent with brides across the globe.
