Thank you to Cami Smith for highlighting Celebration (and Tresca on 8th) in this wonderful posting. If you missed the first part, please click here to get caught up (and to watch a video of the Celebration gals in action!). Also, the photos of Celebration were taken by Photography by Thomasina, one of our new advertisers here on HCB. Enjoy!
I believe there are a few girls in this world who don’t enjoy getting dressed to the nines for a special occasion, but I don’t know any of them. When I hear about a gala, second chance prom or a black tie wedding invitation crosses my desk my mind immediately goes to one thing, the dress!
Well, many already know of a gem in downtown Lynchburg that specializes in beautiful ball gowns, cocktail attire and some of the most stunning wedding dresses to be found, Celebration Bridal. But what many may not know is that Celebration is the success that it is because of the team of ladies who seriously know how to bring it when it comes to special occasion fashion.
Leecy Fink, Tara Cofer, Jessica Boardman and Rebekah Huntsman make up this team that collectively run Celebration Bridal at 920 Main St. and Tresca on 8thth. Celebration owner, Fink, will be the first to tell you that each of her girls will dress you from head to toe paying attention to every detail. She says it is about the experience, and experiencing these ladies at work is one you will never forget.

When they are not attending to each client’s every need, their quirky banter will have you laughing until your sides hurt. These women love their jobs, their clients and each other and it shows.
Are you a bride? From the moment you walk in the door for your personalized appointment to the day you wear one of the shops designer couture gowns, it is about you. And don’t leave out the family; Celebration can dress everyone in your bridal party, even the flower girl.
Prom and homecoming are other events that cannot be overlooked or under planned and there are jaw dropping gowns and accessories just waiting to be paired. There is no event that is too small or too big for these ladies to prepare you for and while they know how to ready you for the party, they certainly know how to throw one as well.
When the lights are turned off and the doors are locked on Main Street, the work has already begun at Tresca on 8th. Owned 50/50 by Fink and Cofer, Tresca has become a staple event venue downtown. The inside has been transformed upstairs and down into a classic urban chic canvas for each event to make its own.
The familiar faces of Celebration will be running the show at Tresca as well. Boardman, Huntsman, Cofer and Fink work from set up to tear down and everything in-between to ensure each event is a success. There is no heavy lifting or job too dirty for these girls to take one and they are proud of it.
