In August of 2016, Heather Cunningham had the idea to create a space that would fill this void for all local brides. Brides of Long Island (BOLI) was created with its goal to serve as a bridal resource to locate information, wedding ideas, and recommendations. Heather believed that local Brides truly need to connect with other Long Island brides. Word of the group spread fast as the group’s kindness, sound ideas, and inclusion spread throughout the Island. Because of the group’s quick growth, she needed additional assistance to manage and maintain its integrity. Soon Caitlyn and Suzanne came on board to help Heather maintain the group’s core beliefs and original purpose- a sisterhood of brides who welcome and assist to ensure every bride has her dream wedding.
