Hi, I’m Sharon. I’ve owned and managed Tiffanys Bridal for nearly nine years. I’m pictured here with my business partner and one of my best friends, Carolyn. Although I’ve known her too many years to count and my daughter is now married to her son, neither of us ever imagined we would go into business together. She was one of my biggest supporters when, after 20 years of freelance wedding planning, I decided to become a consultant at Tiffanys, and she was ready to help make it happen when I said I thought I wanted to make the boutique my own.
Also posing with me in our antique mirror from the original Tiffanys store is Ashley, my daughter and Carolyn’s daughter-in-law. The year Carolyn and I took over the business, she had her daughter Grace, pictured below trying on a flower girl dress for a fashion show. Instead of returning to her job, Ashley started on this website. Since then we have worked together as a family and a team to transform Tiffanys, Richmond’s oldest bridal store, from “something old” into “something new.” Our families pitched in to help us move the boutique to the Ridge Shopping Center only two months after we became the new owners for Tiffanys. We love our new boutique, but most of all we love the new members of our family: our amazing team of consultants, pictured below.
GETTING TO KNOW ME:
I have six beautiful grandchildren,
who call me Mamala.
My fondest memories are of my dad
dressing up like Santa.
My wedding gown came from Tiffanys Bridal.
Happiness is cruising the river on
my pontoon boat.
