FOUNDER . EDITOR
Hey y’all, I’m Hope!
I’m a wife, a dog mama, a homebody, a book hoarder, a social media manager for a local small business, and the creator and face behind Brides in Color!
I grew up in a small town in Eastern Kentucky, moved to Central Kentucky when I was 19, then packed up and moved to the beautiful coast of North Carolina in late summer of 2018! My husband and I have always wanted to live near the beach and we are so grateful that we get to live on the beautiful coast of NC!
I’m an enneagram 9 so I love slow mornings, a good cup of coffee, trips to the bookstore, naps with my pups, and all things cozy. I’m a true homebody if you can’t tell!
Fall is my favorite season, Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I love seasonal living. Celebrating each season, holiday, and event of the year is one of my favorite things to do.
