Hi Y’all! I’m Maria Montgomery, your bridal curator for the Lexington, KY area. I’m so excited to meet you! After getting engaged to my sweet husband Zac, I was introduced to Heidi from my best friend. I instantly knew I wanted to be a #HeidiBride not just because the gowns were stunning, but because of the morals behind the brand.

I completely LOVED designing my Build A Bride gown so much that I began modeling for the Build A Bride collection! I learn a lot about the gowns and the embellishments during our shoots and want to tell everyone about it! I have an obsession of all things Kentucky, which began during my year as Miss Kentucky USA 2009. I then graduated college and signed with FORD Models. This started my modeling career and spiked a heart for traveling!

But at home, I am a host for TV commercials and news specials. I also get to use my passion for University of Kentucky athletics as an on-court entertainment host during Men’s basketball games… GO CATS! Although I have worked with beauty companies, fashion, and more, I’ve always had a true passion for modeling bridal and evening gowns since 2007. At apparel markets, it’s always incredibly rewarding to help buyers choose gowns that fit not just their bodies, but their personalities as well. I believe girls’ know when the dress is “the one” from an inner heart nudging. And what an honor to get to experience that special moment with you!
