Laney attended University of North Florida, where she was a student athlete in Cross Country + Track, graduating with her Bachelor's in Psychology in 2013 and her Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2015. While working part-time as a Mental Health Counselor for the Women's Center of Jacksonville, Laney met Melissa and began working as a stylist at Love, a Bridal Boutique. Laney quickly fell in love with bridal, and began full-time managing Love. Her passion for celebrating + empowering women led her to join Danielle and Melissa in opening Curve! When she isn't styling brides, Laney can often be found relaxing on the beach with her friends + boyfriend, Jordan.
Melissa attended Florida State University and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor in Business and Fashion Merchandising. Shortly after graduating, Melissa and her husband, Sean, moved to Jacksonville, FL. Melissa had always dreamed of working in bridal, and was hired as a stylist at Love, a Bridal Boutique. After six years of managing Love, Melissa and Sean purcahsed the store in 2017 from founder Nancy Love. From there, Melissa opened One Love Bridal Outlet along with fellow Curve owner, Danielle, in 2020. Curve is a dream come true for Melissa, as she was always unsatisfied with the limited options for curvy brides. When Melissa isn't at work she can often be found spending time with Sean and their two children, Brady + SJ.
Danielle, a Jacksonville native, is also an FSU Aluma like Melissa, graduating in 2013. She went on to attend Florida Coastal Law, and practiced civil law here in Jacksonville. Danielle purchased One Bridal in 2018 to focus on fulfilling her dream of working in fashion. Shortly after purchasing One Bridal, Danielle reached out to Melissa to introduce herself, as she always says; community over competition! They teamed up to open One Love Bridal Outlet in 2020, giving brides on a budget a boutique experience. Danielle is beyond proud to open Curve, as she is passionate about helping every bride, no matter their budget, size, or style! When she isn't at work, Danielle can often be found traveling + spending time with her husband Tommy and their three children Madison, Cole, and Palmer.
