Adalynn Mills

Namesake & HR Director

Evey Mills is the oldest daughter of Jerry and Stephanie. While being 4 has many perks, growing up in a bridal store is one of the best! Being the Director of Marketing for the store, Evey goes through lots of crayons while handling the day-to-day marketing tasks that can be quite hectic.

Evey is currently in preschool and she enjoys walking her dog, Hutch, playing outdoors, bossing her sister around, and playing dress-up in "her" store.

Adalynn is the newest member of the Mills family and is currently only a few months old. Adalynn is following in her older sister's footsteps and really embracing the bridal store. While she currently loves to sleep, eat, cuddle, and watch her sister make funny faces, Adalynn is excited to be the new HR Director for Evey Lynn Bridal.
