Meet The Bridal Collection Crew
Our Owner, Tessa
Hello! I’m Tessa and I’m so excited that you’re here! I am a Grand Island native and started working at The Bridal Collection in 2017. In 2019, my boyfriend (now husband) got a new job in Colorado, so we moved for a short time, but I just couldn’t get the store out of my mind. The opportunity to buy the store came up in 2020 so we moved back to Grand Island and I took a chance. In January of 2021, I became the store’s owner and moved The Bridal Collection to its new downtown location. On the few days I’m not running The Bridal Collection, I enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors hiking and camping with my husband with our two huskies Atreyu and Shiva. Working in bridal has been so rewarding, I love being a part of such a special moment in our bride’s lives!
Hello beauties! My name is Haley and I am the assistant manager here at The Bridal Collection. The store has been my “home away from home” for the last six years. For me, this job is more than just a paycheck, it’s a place that instantly brings me joy the moment I walk in. Each and everyday I get the chance to help brides find their dream dress and be a part of their special day! Who wouldn’t love this job?! When I am not
working with the BC ladies I can be found hanging with my family and friends, playing tennis or simply just enjoying the great outdoors! I am confident that The BC Crew here at The Bridal Collection can help create the wedding you’ve envisioned since you were little, so stop in and let us be a part of your love story!

became our marketing manager. Basically I run all of our social media, create our website design, plan events, and retain our brand management to make sure The Bridal Collection is accessible to all of our beautiful brides. While I love making every bride’s dream come true, my true passion lies in the behind the scenes work of BC’s marketing.

Hi, my name is Jill! I’m an incoming freshman to the University of Nebraska- Lincoln. I plan on pursuing the Pre-Medical track, in hopes of one day becoming a physician. Even though I am kinda a science nerd, I have dreamed of my wedding day since I was a little girl. I envisioned the big poofy white dress, a handsome groom, the moment as I walk down the aisle, all of it!
My goal as a bridal stylist is to provide a stress free, enjoyable environment to find the perfect dress for your big day. I am excited to help brides find a dress that makes them feel confident, beautiful, and themselves! I can’t wait to work with you, and find your dream dress!
Hi buddies! My name is Vanessa, I am a part-timer here at the store. When I found out that Tessa was going to take over, I bugged her until she let me work here. One of my favorite parts of working here is helping brides find their dream dress, I may have cried a few times with our brides. When I’m not working, I am hanging out with my friends, playing softball, volleyball or just chilling with my fur babies
and my Jeffrey. While I haven't worked here as long as others, it is another family and I am a proud member of the team!
