Style to Inspire: Amy Kuschel

Oh, am I excited for today’s Style to Inspire. So excited in fact, that instead of waiting to share this with you on the regular Style to Inspire day of Monday, I couldn’t help but publish this right away! You guys are in for a treat. Let me introduce you to the fabulous Amy Kuschel, bridal designer extraordinaire — and, as it so happens, the designer of my own wedding gown. This week, Amy was kind enough to welcome me into her design studio, which (conveniently enough!) is located directly upstairs from the salon where brides stop in to browse her gorgeous selections of gowns. It is so special to me that my own dress will be made right here in SF, and I consider it an honor to be able to feature Amy here today. Read on to learn about how she got started in the business, what inspires her, where she thinks the wedding industry will be in five years, and her favorite restaurant in SF (which happens to to be one of my faves too)!

Amy, thank you so much for such an amazing interview. And a huge thank you as well to the entire Amy Kuschel team for allowing me into their workspace to photograph their unbelievable studio. It was an honor and a pleasure!
