Ashbury also specializes in custom-made accessories. Shilo Verhaegen (Owner) has been a freelance artist for over 15 years. The boutique is filled with her treasures. Every avenue of life she has gone down has further enthralled her passion for Ashbury. She managed the largest Bridal boutique in the Okanagan and was a consultant at another local bridal boutique, and this was when it became clear to her that she wanted to create an eco-friendly, cost savvy bridal boutique which also focused on keeping things local. It was a trip to San Francisco, and experiencing the area of Haight Ashbury, that put the wheels in motion. She is a self-proclaimed perfectionist and truly puts her heart into helping every women find exactly what she is looking for.   Book a consultation with Shilo today to have your wishes and imaginings come to life.
