What is your secret super power?

My secret superpower would be my ability to whistle. I get comments a lot because I’m constantly whistling that it’s because I’m not a very good singer!

When I’m not in the salon I’m...

When I’m not in the salon I’m out shopping. I love fashion, I love shopping, so on my days off I go to Nordstrom, grab a Nordstrom coffee and look at the selection!

What do you love most about working with brides?

What I love most about working with brides is getting to know their backstory, being a part of their journey, and making them feel like they’re actually talking to a friend and not just an employee. For me, it’s about building the interaction with our brides and making them feel as comfortable as possible!

What is your secret super power?

My secret superpower is just being very collaborative and creative. When it comes to using my imagination, for me it just comes naturally. I can help others create a picture in their minds with my observations and my ideas.

Jacqueline

Bridal Consultant


What makes Miosa special?

What makes Miosa special is that we all have the same vision when it comes to listening to what our brides really want and making sure that they are a priority and we’re putting them first. Just seeing them walk out of here, either in happy tears or just with a big smile plastered on their face… we all make sure that we’re pretty good about doing that!

What do you love most about working with brides?

What I love most about working with brides is being able to really make sure that they feel confident in themselves. My ultimate favorite thing about my brides is that even though everybody has that one thing about themselves that they’re insecure about, I can bring out a different side to that so when they put that dress on and have that certain feeling, nothing bothers them anymore and they’re just so happy! I love to build that confidence with our brides.

What is your secret super power?

I feel that my superpower is that whenever I hear a Beyonce song I know all of her choreography. It’s an obsession.

When I’m not in the salon I’m...

What do you love most about working with brides?

What I love most about working with brides is getting to know all the different kinds of personalities they have. It kind of feels that you make friends during the appointment and get to know them and their family and their quirks. So it’s just a really personal experience and it feels great to know that you’re helping to make their dream day come true.

What is your secret super power?

My secret super power probably would be being a really great listener. I like to hear people out whether it’s my brides here at work, you know, a lot of times they have a lot of pressure, a lot of things going on and you want to make sure they don’t feel like pushed or rushed into things. And same thing away from work, I just like to listen to people, hear their stories, hear what’s going on and get to know them better.

When I’m not in the salon I’m...

When I’m not in the salon I am usually painting or writing. Outside of work I’m an artist and I like to just relax and make things so that’s my favorite thing to do.


Rebecca

There are a lot of things that make Miosa special, but I think one of the things is the wide range we have for dresses and also the really friendly atmosphere and the people here working really creates a warm environment. I think that really helps make it special.

What do you love most about working with brides?

I love working with brides because I've always been a hopeless romantic. So I love being able to hear their stories about their love and what they share with their fiance. And then I just love the fashion aspect and being able to help them feel beautiful and just get them really excited about their big day!

What is your secret super power?

I think my secret superpower has to be my ability to make people feel at ease so I can really help them feel comfortable. And I think that's especially important here in the salon because nobody wants to feel pressured about buying a bridal gown and it's a huge decision. And so it's really important for me that they know that there's no pressure and we're just here to have fun and it's going to be smooth!

When I’m not in the salon I’m...

When I'm not in the salon, I'm usually relaxing on the couch with my two dogs and two cats and my niece.
