Meet Bree Gianassi Little | CEO 

I’m a multi-passionate wife, mama, and business owner that believes every woman deserves to look and feel beautiful every day but especially on her wedding day. I purchased Always Elegant Bridal and Tuxedo over 13 years ago when it was in a tiny location off the beating path. I was a one woman show for many years and focused on creating a brand I was proud of while growing the business into the multi-location success that it is today. As much love and devotion that I put into my business, I remain focus on trying to be the best wife, mommy, and friend to the ones I cherish. Whether you have been styled by me or one of my stylists, my hope is you felt stronger and more empowered. I will forever be looking for my next big endeavor and searching for individuals I can touch and create a memory with. Mom, step-mom, wife, mentor, entrepreneur, or Wonder Woman {as my son Hudson calls me}; whatever you choose to call me I will do everything in my power to live up to it in confidence and integrity.


Meet Gabby | Lead Stylist
If you’re looking for someone to make you feel like a member of your family throughout your dress journey, this is your girl. Her big beautiful eyes is only the doorway to an even more beautiful heart. She’s found her calling in the bridal world and the pure happiness and excitement she gains from helping someone find their dream dress is something every woman fantasizes about experiencing. Her true passion in life is her friends, family, and champagne. Gabby is the type of person that’s willing to give everything she has to help someone in need and it’s only a small part of the many reasons she’s such an essential part of our team. If you’re ever in need of a laugh, a hug, or any shade of lipstick out of her extensive collection she will be the first person reaching out a pretty manicured hand to help you out. We love our Gabby and we LOVE the relationships she builds with each one of our brides. To know her is to love her, and to be styled by her is even more special. We cherish every moment with Gabby and we can’t wait to see the wonderful things that life brings to her.


Meet Brianna | Lead Bridal Stylist

Brianna (the other Bri) grew up in Oroville and made her way to Chico after finishing school at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco. She has an extensive knowledge of fit, sewing and alterations of bridal gowns and special occasion dresses. Bri has been in the bridal business for close to 10 years and loves everything about it. She is close with her family and loves spending time with her nice and nephews. She says that their giggles just fill up the room and she can’t imagine a world without that innocent laughter. With planning her own wedding in 2017, she has the knowledge and tips that every bride can pick her brain about. In her free time, Brianna loves to be home with her husband, step daughter and their two cats (Davey and Sealy). On her way to work she listens to her books on tape, it’s her little way to have her love of reading with little time meshed into one. Brianna has been with Always Elegant Bridal since opening the Chico store in December of 2016. She got to work closely with Bree (the owner) to help set up and find the perfect styles for all our Chico brides. She knows every dress by name and will cry with you and your group when you’ve found the dress you’ve been dreaming about.

Meet Madison | Bridal Stylist

This lovely soul is a Chico native, born and raised. She tracked us down while attending the Chico Bridal Show, knowing she wanted to buy her wedding gown with us. Her inviting and effervescent personality stuck with us and she became a part of our AE team just a few months later. When she is not helping her brides find their dream dress, she is making hair dreams come true at a local salon as a licensed cosmetologist. Madison loves being outdoors, whether it’s fishing or going for walks with her hubby and their two dogs – she’s up for it all. Favorite Drinks: Starbucks favorite – Black tea with strawberry acai refresher. Nighttime favorite – Moscow Mule. | Advice to Brides:  Don’t over think it! At the end of the day you are going to look absolutely beautiful. Don’t sweat the small stuff, just have fun! | My Dream Wedding: “My wedding was in September of 2018. It’s had a vintage romantic feel. It was outside surrounded by roses, rustic accents and strands of romantic lights hung above us. I was a day full of love and fun with all of our favorite people.”

Meet Hannah | Bridal Stylist

Hannah grew up in the Roseville area and made her way upstate to attend CSU Chico. She has a theater background and works part time at Chico State as a seamstress along with styling her brides here at Always Elegant Bridal. Hannah was a flower girl at the age of 4 and has loved weddings ever since, so it would only make sense that she ended up here with us. When Hannah isn’t finding dream dresses for brides, she is reading any Sci-fi fantasy or romance novels she can get her hands on and watching all genres of movies. Her dream is to become a theater teacher and hopes to influence younger generations to fall in love with acting and singing as much as she does. Favorite Drinks: Starbucks Favorite – Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino. Nighttime Favorite – Jack & Coke. | Advice to Brides: Be open to different silhouettes. Trust your heart, it never fails! | My Dream Wedding: “I’ve dreamt of a full wedding weekend event in Fall on the Delta in Sacramento surrounded by all of my family and friends.”

Meet Zoe | Bridal Stylist

Zoe is originally from Liverpool in the UK. Zoe first started coming to the US when she was 18 to visit big cities such as Seattle and Nashville. She dreamed of visiting Nashville because of her extensive love for music. She sings and plays a little guitar in her spare time and was even in a band for a couple of years. It was in Chicago that she met the love of her life, who lives here in Chico. When they got engaged, she searched first in the UK, but just wasn’t finding what she was wanting. She stepped into Always Elegant Bridal in November of 2017 in hopes of finding the one (which of course, she did)!  They were married at Grey Whale Cove in Pacifica, Ca that following May. When she saw that AE was hiring again, she jumped at the opportunity to work with and style brides the way she was styled for her wedding. When she is home, she likes to take time to travel with her Husband. She also loves to write and attend concerts of all genres of music. Favorite Drinks: Starbucks Favorite – Strong black coffee or double espresso. Nighttime Favorite – Small glass of Bourbon on the rocks. | Advice to Brides: Give yourself ample time for ordering and trust your stylist, they really do know it all! | My Dream Wedding: “My Wedding was an intimate family event with about 25 guests. It was on a cliff top over looking the ocean and the reception was at a beachfront hotel on balcony with beautiful views of the sunset. My guests were lucky enough to see a grey whale swim by during my walk down the aisle, it was very memorable.”
