Our Story

Sydney Rose Wray is a graduate school student, singer/songwriter, and model in the Greensboro, North Carolina  Area. In undergrad she majored in Criminal Justice and Sociology because she knew that she loved the criminology and psychology field, even though she did not know exactly what she wanted to do with her degrees. After going through some tough situations she felt called to help others through therapy and is now in graduate school at Liberty University for Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She is also a local musician, and you can find her playing in bars and restaurants all around the triad. She started modeling three years ago and was doing a lot of creative modeling, but recently she fell into bridal modeling and styled shoots and completely fell in love with the wedding industry.  

Clothing has always been a love of hers, and a sort of necessity having to play live shows and modeling. She loves wearing clothing that is different than what anybody else is wearing, as well as making statements with the things she wears. She has dreamed of opening a clothing store since she was young and she believes that everything in her life has led up to her opening Rust and Roses.

Her mission with Rust and Roses is to provide brides with fun and trendy wedding outfits, that meet all of their dream wedding visions, at a budget-friendly cost. She is getting married in March of 2023 and is most definitely a budget bride. She has been gifted so much help from people she loves and because of that she will be able to have a beautiful wedding that meets all of her visions.

She hopes that Rust and Roses will bless you and make you feel beautiful.
