The Story

I'm a football wife and a proud mom of two, but most of all, I’m the girl who dresses in theme for everything she does.  So whether I'm in the stands screaming my head off or hosting a Halloween party for a household of first graders, you can bet I've got the outfit to match.

My whole life I always thought I would get my big break as a singer on Star Search (and I'd look good doing it!), but as it turns out, I don't carry a tune too well.  Nonetheless, I’ve always had big dreams, and six years ago, while I was home on maternity leave with my daughter, I came up with an idea to open a consignment shop dedicated to bridal gowns. With my passion for fashion, my love for weddings, and my frugal mindset, it was a match made in Heaven. Ballantyne Brides was born. It took more than half a decade to finally make the leap, but the time between idea and action has only strengthened my joy and commitment to bridal consignment! 

At Ballantyne Brides I want to offer a loving way for women to pass along the fashion that made their special day so wonderful. I created this boutique to give all brides a chance to have their dream wedding dress without breaking the bank. 

I can't wait to help you too!
