You may have seen her on the popular TLC show "Say Yes to the Dress."

Now bridal consultant Keasha Rigsby has opened the only bridal boutique in the city of Detroit - made possible in part-- by a motor city grant.

We're talking about fashion, style, entrepreneurship, and yes wedding dresses, in the city of Detroit.

With the help of a $50,000 matching grant from the mayor's office, the John Bagley mansion along east Jefferson Avenue has been renovated, and is now called Beautiful Bridal.

The owner and fashion designer Keasha Rigsby says her business will provide high-end wedding dresses you typically can't find in the city.

She says now a soon to be bride won't always have to shop in the suburbs.

"As a matter of fact, I want the suburbs to come here to Detroit," Rigsby said.

Friday marked Keasha's grand opening, and moving to "The D" from New York City, the fashion designer says Detroit is the new hot spot.

"I was a bit apprehensive in the beginning, I didn't know what to expect," she said. "But I'm going to be honest with you, Detroit has embraced me. I can't begin to tell you how this city has opened up its arms to little old me. Detroit has said 'You know what, Keasha, this is where you belong.'"
