The creative force behind Portland, Oregon-based August Veils is Andrea Hoyt. Andrea has been in the bridal accessories business since 1996 when she opened her first store, AniA Bridal. As the business grew, Andrea found that many of her brides complained about a lack of quality bridal headpieces.
"I got started making tiaras by helping a customer who was in tears trying to find one," says Andrea. "It took me all week to make one tiara because I had never done it before. After that I vowed never to do it again. Now it's the main part of my business!"

Soon, she found a niche making custom headpieces for her customers and this grew into a full-time occupation. In 1999, Andrea sold her share of AniA Bridal to devote her time exclusively to custom bridal veils and headpieces - thus August Veils was born.

"I have always loved to work with my hands — drawing, sewing, etc," says Andrea. "In college, I took graphic arts courses and freelance drawing art classes. I've always had an aptitude for design."

In 2001, Andrea teamed up with a group of other local bridal vendors to form The Bridal Loft.

"Being part of the Loft has been crucial to the success in my business locally," commented Andrea. "The Loft has provided me a great working atmosphere I share with six other talented women. The combined positive attitude makes the Loft a comfortable place to be for customers. We are not a typical bridal shop — nor will we ever be."

Andrea's designs have been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, Wedding Dresses Magazine, and on the cover of Portland Bride and Groom. Read less

Andrea was absolutely incredible to work with. She came highly recommended to me by a friend and I will forever recommend her to all of my friends!

She made my dress fit like a glove & she has such a great personality that I actually could not wait for my next fitting! She makes beautiful veils as well.

These ladies are the best in the business!! I was very nervous when I was selecting where to take my wedding dress to be altered for obvious reasons. I definitely made the right choice by selecting Lei at CustomFit2U. They did an amazing job!! Plus Lei and Andrea are great ladies that made the whole experience really fun. I also received my viel and a flower from Andrea with August Veils. She did an amazing job and it really added a lot. If you are looking for someone for alterations or a Veil, I STRONGLY recommend Andrea (August Veils) and Lei (Custom Fit ToYou) since they are very detail oriented and do an amazing job!

Andrea worked with me to make custom pieces for my hair and dress. I received soooo many compliments on how beautiful they were! She was also very flexible with my last minute time crunch. It was perfect and she was fun to work with.

Thanks Andrea!

Katherine was amazing...I met her at a bridal show and was so impressed with her attention to detail and her personal relationships with her clients. When I met with her she was only interested in what I wanted for the wedding and we did two run throughs before the wedding day. On the big day she came to my venue early to make sure everything was running smoothly. She stayed during pictures to touch up my makeup and gave me tips for the camera as we went along. She was so genuine and an incredible makeup artist. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day and my husband, who doesn't like any makeup, thought I looked beautiful. Thanks Katherine! I would highly recommend her...she is worth the extra money!
