In 2014 Erin and Roxy were co-workers at the same bank, with Erin working as a Teller and Roxy as a Banker. The two became fast friends. As Erin planned her summer wedding she started looking for a way to have pretty directional signs. She soon noticed the Roxy had particularly beautiful handwriting. Roxy agreed to help out with the signs and once they saw the finished products, the two realized they had found a hole in the Colorado wedding industry. They spent the rest of the year collecting stock, preparing a business plan and honing their skills to open for business. At the start of 2015 B&Y Bridal was born.
B&Y Bridal: Our Story
Special thanks to Mia Szabo and Justin Baker for making this wonderful video for us!
Erin Barrett, the ‘B’ in B&Y Bridal, is the collector of the business. When she’s not hunting through antique stores and estate sales for the perfect stock addition, she’s building frames and thinking about the latest wedding trends. Erin loves designing events and seeing all the planning come to life. While attaining her Bachelor’s in Communication from Colorado Christian University she interned for two years with Chancey Charm, a luxury wedding planning and design studio based in Atlanta, Georgia. It was there, she learned to love all things weddings. Erin’s wedding in 2014 only made that love grow. Erin and her husband, Sean, call Littleton home with their two cats.
