My name is Marina, I'm the founder of Bridal Breeze. Today nothing makes me happier at work than sharing the magical moment of finding that perfect dress with my clients. However, my life has taken a lot of turns to get here.
I lived in several countries in Europe before coming to San Francisco. By that time, I had worked in enterprise software sales for years. I liked my job, but at some point I felt like I wanted something more.
After a long work day I would come home and watch an episode of "Say Yes to the Dress". I was obsessed with that show. Many times I would find myself daydreaming about opening my own bridal salon, offering champagne to my guests and seeing the smiles on happy brides' faces.
The first time I seriously considered making the dream a reality was when my friend invited me to her bridal dress fitting. Looking at how stressful bridal shopping could be, I saw an opportunity. I had this desire to create a space, where brides can be themselves, express their personality, be understood and supported. A place with dresses as unique as the brides themselves. This was the beginning.
A year after my friend's wedding I opened the doors of Bridal Breeze in San Francisco and never looked back. Having made my bold move, I found joy and purpose in supporting amazing women ready to open a new chapter of their lives.
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.
