Remaining calm, cool and collected is part of the business model of Rebecca's Wedding Boutique. Another is staying positive and spreading joy when customers are overwhelmed. Even during the recent lockdown, Rebecca and her team doubled down on their positivity and their mission to spread joy and help people feel good.
They got extra creative to offer safe-distancing pickups at the store and to showcase videos of their inventory, all while continuing to take orders for headpieces, veils and other accessories.
“We all do what we do at Rebecca’s because we love LOVE,” says Rebecca Kimura. “It’s an incredible honor to play a part in the most special day of their lives.”
She opened her boutique in 1989 in St. Matthews. Two years ago in May, Rebecca’s Wedding Boutique moved to Clover Lane just a few blocks away and completely renovated a bright and open space. “Each bride has her own dressing room and viewing area for her and her shopping squad,” says Alex Kimura. She and her sister Sam grew up in the boutique with their mom, Rebecca. Alex handles social media and marketing, while Sam does all of the ordering. Rebecca’s twin sister, Karen, is a manager at the store.
As a family business, their tight-knit team of stylists, led by General Manager Madeleine Sierakowski, feel like family also. “We have relationships with amazing designers with a wide variety of styles from boho to classic, modern to traditional, strapless to long sleeves, all lace, all beaded, all satin, and everything in between,” says Alex.
Rebecca’s Wedding Boutique has sample gowns in sizes 0 to 30, with prices ranging from around $900 to $3,000. “We have focused our energy on providing the best possible experience to our lovely brides and their besties, dedicating our space to bridal and bridesmaids only,” says Alex.
Her mom (and boss) is so grateful to be in a career she loves, with people she loves even more. Rebecca says, “We have met so many wonderful women over the last 30 years and counting of being in business and we can truly say that we are grateful for the opportunity and the joy of working with each of them.”
We all do what we do at Rebecca’s because we love LOVE. It’s an incredible honor to play a part in the most special day of their lives.
