Madison is a graduate of Campbell University with a bachelor degree in Exercise and Sport Science and is currently completing her Doctorate of Physical Therapy. She is originally from Wilson, North Carolina, so small-town life is in her genes! When she is not studying or working with our sweet brides, she loves trying new restaurants with her boyfriend, spoiling their miniature dachshund, Scout, spending time with her family and friends, and relaxing by the ocean. Madison’s favorite part about being a bridal stylist is forming a relationship with each bride, getting to know who they are as a bride, and as a person while guiding them to find their dream gown. For her, the most rewarding part of the wedding dress journey is watching brides fall in love with not only a dress but the beauty within themselves. Once you walk through our pink doors, you are part of our family.
Lindsey considers herself to be an East Coast wanderer! She is originally from Asheville, but has lived in SC, VA, WV, and MD before finally settling back in her home state! She attended West Virginia University where she majored in Fashion Design and Merchandising. While at school, Lindsey was heavily involved in the Pride of West Virginia marching band as a member of the color guard for four years, then as an instructor for three. It was in the band that she met her husband, Andrew (he was a drummer, and who doesn’t love a drummer?). After graduation, they moved to his home state of Maryland where she worked at Betsy Robinson’s Bridal Collection. She learned so much about the bridal industry from working with Betsy and the rest of the staff, and it solidified the fact that bridal was where she was supposed to be. Andrew and Lindsey moved to NC in 2013 and have loved every minute of it! They have two human kids, Corinne and Harrison, and two fur kids, Piper (a Pitbull/boxer mix) and Gia (… a cat.)! They have kept music in their life through their involvement with Wake & District Pipes and Drums, a Scottish bagpipe and drum organization based in Raleigh. Simply Blush came into Lindsey’s life by a happy accident and she could not be more excited to be a part of this family! It exemplifies what she always dreamed bridal could be – fun, loving, and family-oriented with an undying passion for finding the perfect dress for each bride that walks through the door!
