Meet the Team
Having lived in the Lynchburg area her entire life, Teresa is first and foremost a wife and mom to her 3 children. Before opening her own bridal boutique, she was a stay-at-home mom for twenty years. Family is everything to Teresa. As her oldest daughter was considering what to study in college, the idea of working together in bridal as mother-daughter was mentioned, and the vision for Ashley Grace Bridal was born. Even the name Ashley Grace has its roots in family, originating from the middle names of her two daughters, Lauren Ashley and Madison Grace.
Teresa’s kindness, compassion, and love for people is reflected in the vision of Ashley Grace Bridal. When we tell our brides that they are a part of the Ashley Grace family, we truly mean it. Teresa truly makes everyone feel welcomed, loved, valued, and like a part of her family.
In her free time, Teresa enjoys traveling with her family and keeping up with her children’s many activities.
Having grown up in a military family, Taylor lived all across the country before making Lynchburg her home in 2011 when she attended Liberty University. After graduating from Liberty, Taylor was an art and computer teacher, where she even taught Teresa’s daughters! Once Ashley Grace opened in 2016, Taylor joined the team as Office Manager. Her role as Office Manager has provided her opportunities in marketing and ordering as well.
Taylor loves everything creative, organized, and detailed. To-do lists are her best friend. Though you’ll mostly find her working behind-the-scenes in most of her daily responsibilities, she also delights in serving and loving on our brides, helping them find that extra special dress.
Married to her best friend, Taylor loves spending time with her husband, working on home projects, and watching her favorite sports teams in her spare time.
Living in Pennsylvania all of her life, Lauren came to Virginia in 2014 to attend Liberty University. After graduation in 2016, Lauren was asked to join the Ashley Grace team and help bring Teresa’s vision of Ashley Grace Bridal into a reality. Upon opening day, it was clear that Lauren was gifted with the ability to communicate and connect with brides. Lauren became our Master Stylist in 2017 and is responsible for all communication with brides. Her sweet spirit and joyful attitude make her brides feel loved and celebrated. You will see her taking appointments throughout the week as well as overseeing other appointments to be sure brides find the perfect dress they’ve been dreaming of.
Lauren’s bubbly personality and contagious smile bring so much life to the Ashley Grace Team. In her spare time, you’ll find Lauren reading a book in a local coffee shop, eating Chipotle, or going on a spontaneous adventure with friends.
