Santa Barbara Bridal was started just over one year ago by 26 year old entrepreneur, Kielle Lindsey. Lindsey received her start in the bridal industry years ago in management right here in Santa Barbara. After studying for graduate degrees in psychology and education, she realized a strong need on the central coast for an upscale bridal and eveningwear salon. Santa Barbara Bridal was the perfect marriage of Lindsey's previous experience and the perfect opportunity in one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. A fourth-generation Santa Barbarian, Lindsey quickly concluded that the downtown area of the second most popular destination wedding city in the entire country was the ideal location to open her boutique. Bringing the name Vera Wang and other top designers to the popular destination of Santa Barbara has enticed brides from all over the world to visit Santa Barbara Bridal. Although only in her mid-twenties, Lindsey has plans of opening additional salons in California that would encapsulate the high level of product and service that has already made Santa Barbara Bridal a great success.
