Mikayla Crane, Owner & Stylist


My incredibly supportive husband Jeremiah, our son Remington and I are KC natives and love. our. city! Growing up in a family of all girls, I never remember a time where I was not playing bride and getting into all kinds of lovely shades of blue eye shadow. In fact, I quite possibly had my entire wedding planned by the time I was 6. Owning White Carpet Bride and working with an AMAZING team (Seriously. They’re the BEST!) and beyond wonderful brides every weekend is truly my life’s calling. Having high standards of excellence and keeping ahead of the trend curve fuel my passion. I crave the different. I desire the flawless. I dream of the perfect. Helping a bride and her girlies look and feel absolutely stunning is my devotion. When I meet you, I want to know everything. I want to know your inspiration, your color story, what your florals are going to look like, your engagement story, your favorite cup of coffee! I want to take it all and create your perfect Wedding Day look. All eyes are on you! I want you to truly be White Carpet Ready.

 

 

 

Olivia Meade, Website Design & Stylist


Right after I graduated cosmetology school, my mom presented me with a future career worksheet I had filled out in the second grade. Under the “What do you want to be when you grow up?” question I had filled in “hairstylist”, so you could say my love of the beauty industry has been life long! I had always wanted to be in the wedding industry and a chance encounter with Mikayla helped catapult me right in. I love being able to be a part of our brides happiest day and the constant challenge and inspiration that weddings bring. There’s nothing better than helping make my city and it’s inhabitants look and feel amazing!

 

 

 

Makenzi Hurt, Social Media Manager & Stylist


I’ve always absolutely loved the beauty industry. After graduating high school early, i completed cosmetology school and jumped into working behind the chair, I found myself reaching for more. While working in a salon I was introduced into the wedding industry and fell in love! Nothing makes me happier than seeing a bride light up on her wedding day and making others feel beautiful. Hearing about brides everyday lives and their dream day inspires me to create the best possible looks for their special day.

 

 

 

Alyssa Beckmann, Client Relations, Education & Stylist


I started teaching at Z Hair Academy right after graduating cosmetology school and worked behind the chair part time. After having my son, I made the leap into the world of wedding beauty. I’ve always loved weddings and couldn’t think of a more perfect way to combine my two passions! There’s no better feeling than making someone feel their best; it is even better when it’s their wedding day!
