Loree is a native of Athens, Alabama who believes every bride deserves to feel special. Her love for all things wedding-related started in her early 20’s, when she worked as an assistant to a wedding planner, helping with decor, ceremony direction, and photographer assistance.
It wasn’t long before she was wedding planning for family and friends herself. Loree loved bringing a bride's vision to life and sharing in one her happiest moments. During this time, she also worked in retail sales, and later as an office manager and an accounting clerk. Along with being a co-owner of Kathleen's, she is currently a real estate agent with a certification in Interior Design. All of these professional opportunities allowed her to create an eye for detail, develop interpersonal skills, and gain endless knowledge within the bridal industry.
While shopping with Meighan for her dream gown, she drew from the experiences that left them feeling less than special. As a mother-daughter team, Loree and Meighan set out to redefine wedding dress shopping.
Loree's commitment, passion and evolving vision for Kathleen’s Bridal sets the standard for what your gown shopping experience should be like, which is why Kathleen’s is so different from the rest. Loree, Meighan, and Alex Anne as well believe that your journey to the perfect dress should be personal, stress-free, memorable, and above all, FUN! Loree sincerely looks forward to hearing your story and getting to know you.
When Loree is not at the shop, she enjoys family dinners, shopping, decorating, binge TV watching, cake baking, concerts, fabulous restaurants, family vacations and more! She has three beautiful children: Meighan being the oldest, Nicholas, a recent high school graduate, and Madelyn, a high school student. She loves all animals, especially her cats Milo and Otis, and her dwarf Netherland rabbit, Raymond.
