"One of the most elegant shops! I loved that all the attention was on me when trying to find my dress! They have exclusive designers and are truly some of the sweetest people! Would 100% recommend coming here on your journey of dress shopping!"
The Madeline was the brainchild and dream of Sharon. Working in the background of the wedding industry, Sharon was in and out of wedding dress shops; adjusting, clamping and train flipping bridal gowns for editorials and real weddings. She fell in love with the beauty and magic held in each gown and the importance of the dress for each bride on their wedding day. It is such a key element and a major part of life long memories for the day a bride and groom say “I do” to their forever love.
Riding through Springfield on a regular basis and watching the revitalization of this small town, it occurred to Sharon that one thing missing was an amazing bridal boutique. The town already had several industry professionals; Carlson & Co Planning and Florals, Simply Southern Catering, Local on Laurel Venue, Moncrief Square and award winning and published Torianna Brooke Portraiture. And so the dream was born! She looked at a few locations but it wasn’t until the downstairs of a beautiful 1907 home became vacant that she moved on the idea. Torianna Brooke Portraiture already had a photography studio upstairs - what better pairing! The Madeline Bridal Boutique moved in on June 1, 2022.
Sharon is a former educator holding an Ed.S. in Curriculum & Instruction as well as a serial entrepreneur. Her love of helping others runs over into helping brides through continuing to educate herself on gowns and styling. Together with her daughter, Brooke, they have styled many published wedding editorials and beautiful brides!
Brooke is a graduate of Savannah College of Art & Design. She holds a BFA in Commercial Photography with a minor in graphic design. When Sharon approached Brooke about partnering with her in a bridal boutique she was more than excited! Brooke has a keen eye for all things fashion heightened by her education. Brooke has had a love for the wedding industry and helping brides for over 7 years. Her education and experience as a wedding photographer gives her an extra edge in styling you for your day. She knows and understands all about how you and your gown will photograph. Brooke is an extremely talented, award winning and published photographer. Co-owning a bridal boutique seemed like the next natural thing to do.
