For many women, the dream of a perfect wedding day is something they have envisioned since their first crush. In many cases, the reality of this perfection is something quite different. In trying to achieve her wedding day reality, Allie Woldt met Chelsea Williams, who was putting on a seminar for Bridal Luxe Boutique. As they began talking and sharing their passion for weddings, Allie received a proposal Chelsea that she said yes to right away.
And with that acceptance, the two have just opened the doors to Bridal Luxe Boutique and Chelsea Allie Wedding Planning and design in Grand Junction. “The store is an ‘Inspiration for all things wedding,’” says Williams, “And we wanted to bring something to Grand Junction that we felt was needed.”
The storefront has an inviting atmosphere and carries products from wedding day jewelry, to toasting crystal and cake serving utensils that can be etched and personalized to bridal party apparel to wear for a bachelorette’s night out. Additional services are also available such as custom invitations, linens and place settings for rental and even air brush tanning and teeth whitening. “Our goal was to create a comfortable, enjoyable, confident experience for brides while giving them a hands-on feel for what their weeding day can be,” added Woldt.
Amidst all of the fun of planning a wedding, the duo takes their business as a serious endeavor. Both are certified in wedding planning and design along with air brush tanning. In the period between June and November of this year, Williams and Woldt planned out 16 weddings, including three in one weekend, weddings in Las Vegas and Aspen and set up a wedding at two Rivers Winery for a couple from Oregon. Additionally, the boutique donates to Brides Against Breast Cancer and donates 10% of an air brush tanning to the charity of the client’s choosing.
“We just love sharing our passion for weddings by helping brides on their perfect day,” adds Williams.
