The queen herself, Caitlyn is your personal hype woman for your bridal appointment. Caitlin's style is bold, classic, and unique and of course, is ready for all things 'avant-garde', drama, and 3d florals in bridal. Caitlyn is easy to relate to and listens carefully to every bride so she can help decide what dresses you are gonna love. Some women Caitlyn's look up to are Michelle Obama, "Our first ever black First Lady has paved the way for so many women of color. She's unapologetically herself, and I truly admire that." and Beyonce for many things, but especially her humanitarianism. She is here to empower
