Meet your artists

Jayme has hand picked each artist at Golden Bridal Design with very specific requirements in mind. Every artist here is highly trained with years of experience working with Brides but Jayme was looking for more than that. She believes talent can only take you so far and the actual experience we give our clients is just as important. This team looks beyond the "business" side of things and loves to have a good time! We laugh, we listen, we share stories, and are an additional support system for you through your journey as a bride!
