The Back Story
Bloom Brides, LLC was formed in 2014 by friends who worked in the beauty and fashion industries. Stephanie Sullivan is men's wear fashion designer and Ananda Khan, a hair and makeup session stylist. The pair met in 2005, early in their careers as makeup artists at Soho Bloomingdale's. Both women, with first marriages on the fritz, bonded easily over love and waterproof eyeliner.
Moving on to bright careers in fashion and beauty, they built a wealth of knowledge cutting their chops for brands like Martha Stewart Weddings, Ivy and Aster Bridal, Sweet Paul Magazine, Redbook Magazine, Aerie, John Varvatos, Better Homes and Gardens, HGTV, Target, Pier 1, NBC, A&E, and many more.
The time did heal old wounds and they were both able to focus their attentions on love and marriage once again.
Between them, Stephanie and Ananda had the industry know how and a roster of professionals they could work with to offer brides, grooms and wedding guests who want to look their best, a world class experience. They took a chance to start a fresh bridal beauty and men’s grooming company called Bloom Brides.
In November of 2014, Ananda remarried to a very sweet man in fantastic style. They had a romantic ceremony in Lisbon, Portugal and Stephanie loaned Ananda her something borrowed.
