Hello Lovelies! I’m Amy, founder and designer behind The Belle and The Beau. Since 2008, we have been creating accessories that are not only dapper, modern, and charming, but most importantly, memorable. Each piece is professionally sewn and made with lots of LOVE in our studio in Roseville, CA.
The Belle and the Beau was inspired by the lack of stylish accessories for boy’s. I was searching for wares for my son, but found what I was looking for was almost non-existant. I began to design my own patterns, and immediately found a market hungry for dapper wares for boys. It wasn’t long before menswear was added to the collection, and I have been designing almost exclusively for brides and grooms for several years now.
We offer a stylish collection of neckties, bow ties, suspenders, and pocket squares for boys and men of all ages. You will also find simple and pretty accessories for girls and women…..hair bows, headbands, flower clips, and shoe bows.
My team is dedicated to detail, awesome craftsmanship, customer service, and professionalism. We work closely with each couple to make the perfect collection for them. This may include helping our brides and grooms search and design from fabrics we do not regularly stock. We have been featured in Vogue, Bride’s Magazine, Southern Wedding, and GQ to name a few. Also, several of our clients weddings have been featured on top wedding blogs, such as Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, Wedding Chicks, and more. We also received the honor of being Etsy’s featured seller in June 2012. You can view the entire feature here: http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2012/featured-seller-the-belle-and-the-beau/?ref=fp_featured.
My “love story”….. I met my beau, Daniel, by the orange juice the college cafeteria. I knew he was the one in that moment. I even went back to my dorm and called my mom to let her know I just met the man I would marry. I was a sophomore and he was senior, so he waited until my senior year to propose. We believe in forever love and meaningful beginnings to married life. Dan and I have experienced 15 years of marriage so far with 3 precious babes. We know that life together is work, the very best and most rewarding work. We are a team in life and business and feel blessed that God has given us the opportunity to share in our clients new beginnings and to be a small part of their big day!
A little more about me….. I’m a Northern Cali girl. God, family, sports, “forever love,” and fabric have m’heart.
Thank you for stopping by!
