Fashion Forward: Diamond Sea Bridal Boutique Opens in Portland

After eight years in the bridal industry, longtime Portland designer Holly Stalder has opened the doors of the Diamond Sea bridal boutique. Stalder’s new venture sits next door to her flagship fashion boutique, Haunt, in Portland’s LoBu neighborhood. After five years of selling high-end ready-to-wear items alongside custom-made wedding dresses at Haunt, Stalder wanted a space where she “could meet with brides uninterrupted.” Boasting 300 square feet filled with dreamy namesake creations, silky vintage confections and gem-encrusted jewelry handcrafted by fellow local designers like Austie Eckley, the Diamond Sea exudes distinct Portland sensibilities. “The storefront itself is enough of an advertisement,” Stalder says. “Brides have been slipping notes under the door requesting appointments!” 811 E Burnside, No. 114; 503.810.3936; hollystalder.com
