Colby John was born in Missouri and raised in Winterset, Iowa where he graduated high school in 2012 from a small class of 120 students. By the age of 18 he was a 13-time National Champion gymnast and had attended gyms across Iowa, Illinois, and Florida. Soon after graduation Colby found himself making the move to Florida to see what the world had to offer, and though he had always been creative with a unique aesthetic eye he quickly realized Florida was hindering his creative talents. Later in 2012 he moved back to Iowa to manage a bridal store in Des Moines where his talents and love for the industry took off. Colby quickly discovered that his dream of establishing his own bridal salon and designing his own collection of bridal gowns was not as far out of reach as he had always believed. The thought of writing his own rules and paving his own way for helping brides feel far beyond exceptional on their big day was the most motivating variable in the equation. Since Colby’s purchase of Diamond Bride and the establishment of his brand, he has dressed and designed for thousands of brides as well as over 200 bridal stores that are currently carrying his collection across the United States. Colby makes the trek over-seas to his factory every spring to hand-pick fabrics, laces, and beading to ensure that every one of his bridal gowns are just as unique and beautiful as the brides he is designing for. Colby, along with his talented team of industry professionals strive for nothing short of perfection in their countless hours of work put in each and every day.
“The most beautiful thing one person can ever give to another is their time, and I feel honored for the countless hours my brides have given me to play such an important roll in the making of one of the biggest days of their lives.”
