Ty Slone McBrayer, Owner of Twirl + Co-Owner of Meant To Be Boutique
I am a lover of all things navy, Southern, and cozy. You can find me relaxing at home with my little family most of the time. Home is truly my happy place. I love a good glass of wine on the back porch and traveling just enough to make me appreciate home a little more each time. I am an introvert by nature but love getting to know people and cherish friends like they are family. I have a desire to make people feel loved, welcomed, and celebrated well.
I get asked all the time why I opened Twirl. I was 29 years old and had just spent three years of my life working in government followed by a year and a half in corporate marketing. I had been in a LOT of weddings at this point, but not married myself. I kept thinking how I would love to have a small boutique for brides in Lexington. I wanted a place that felt like home where brides could come to find the most special and beautiful dress they will ever wear. When I get something in my head that I want to make happen it takes hold of me. This idea took hold and became my passion project. I opened Twirl in November 2009 with the help and support of my fiance (now hubby), family, friends, and advisers that I couldn’t have done without. I truly think of Twirl as my first baby. It is a family business and I am thankful for each day and each customer that allows me to do what I love.
Liz Cox, Manager & Marketing Director of Twirl + Co-Owner of Meant To Be Boutique
I get really fired up by my gracious God, encouraging words, and celebrating life well. Get me on a back porch in the Springtime with a glass of wine in my hand & my people surrounding me and I’m one happy girl. I nerd out over the enneagram, have a deep love for the British Royals, and am a forever loyal fan to the Bachelor franchise.
I joined the Twirl team in August 2014 right after graduating from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Family Sciences and a few years of running my own wedding photography/videography business under my belt. My creative eye & love for people have blended together perfectly in my role here at Twirl. I've been given the unique opportunity to cheer women on as they discover their true beauty as a woman & a bride by creating content that engages, educates, and encourages them as they journey through cultivating meaningful marriages.
I never in a million years thought this would be the path the Lord had for me. It just goes to show that He knows us better than we know ourselves and can create a life far greater than we could've dreamed of on our own.
