Meet Erin:Erin Brooks is a West Coast girl who grew up in Portland, OR, attended college in Southern California, and now makes her home in Seattle, WA, with her husband Ben and their baby girl Sloane. Serephine got its official start in June, 2010, after Erin's own wedding, for which she searched high and low for a headpiece that was elegant, yet simple, and that had a superior level of craftsmanship.
Erin is known for her creativity and eye for detail, and prides herself on the fact that every single one of her beautiful accessories is meticulously handcrafted, layer by layer, or petal by petal, out of loose materials, in a free-form style. She uses only the best fabrics, notions, and feathers, and mixes her own colors of silk dyes to hand-dye and hand-paint her pieces. She also hand-forms her flower petals using both traditional millinery irons, and proprietary techniques. These special details are why each piece is truly couture and completely gorgeous, just like the brides who wear them.
Assistant extraordinaire, Abby helps with many things Serephine-related, and is an all around awesome person to boot! Originally from California, she now makes her home in the greater Seattle area, enjoys spending time with friends at Alki beach, and is studying to be a meteorologist at the University of Washington. Erin feels lucky to have such a kind, caring, funny, and smart woman as part of the Serephine team!
