Tessa Kim of Tessa Kim {veil & accessories}

Los Angeles, CA
How many years have you been in the wedding industry? 
2 years

How did you get started? 
I started making veils and accessories when I was trying to find the perfect headpiece for my own August 2009 wedding. At first it was just a DIY project but it transformed into a business shortly after.
Where do you go for inspiration? 
I absolutely love wedding blogs. A few of my favorites are Wedding Chicks, Grey Likes Weddings, Style Me Pretty and Green Wedding Shoes. I also find inspiration in my everyday life, I love living in such a creative city.

What's your signature style? 
My signature style is modern items with a vintage twist. I love incorporating the old with the new.
What’s your favorite spot in your studio? 
Since my studio right now is just a part of my home I love my bookcase full of my supplies with my vintage typewriter on top, it just makes me happy.

Do you have a current favorite color palette or wedding trend?
 Right now I am obsessed with champagnes, creams and gold toned items. I also love muted colors and blush tones, so pretty!
Where do you see your business in 5 years? 
I am hoping to see my business in 5 years hopefully still going strong and having a few employees to help out. I would also like to open a small storefront.
