Allow me to introduce myself! My name is Jennifer Patrice Grubbs and I love all things wedding and events! After living and walking in my purpose of escorting couples into their new phase of married life through wedding planning, coordination, decoration, and design I found myself wanting to take it a step further. I will never stop planning weddings just continuing to elevate the experience hence Lace & Veil Bridal Boutique was born. It is a beautiful thing to be responsible for what is said to be the most important dress you’ll ever wear. My passion for weddings and marriage is an emotion that continues to amaze me everyday and I’m so thankful to each and every client, vendor, family member, and friend that has helped to afford me this opportunity. It is one that I don’t take lightly. I hope to see you soon in the boutique, but in the meantime… Here’s a few things about me!

Mckenna Alagna

Mckenna has been working with brides for 7 years now and has loved every second of it! She grew up with a passion for anything "art"- from painting, drawing, and scultping to photography, makeup, fashion, and more, she has always wanted to be a part of a creative space and bridal gave her the perfect outlet for that! Her favorite brides are those willing to step out of the box and do a more unconventional look- after all, her wedding dress was black, so she's no stranger to fashion risks! In her free time she enjoys riding horses, hanging out with her two cats Derpy & Beans, and going on hikes and weekend getaways with her wonderful husband Tom.
