Owner & Principal Consultant
It’s a beautiful thing when a passion and a career come together… That is where my story begins.
My career in the wedding business started my freshman year of college in 1991 when I started designing and making custom bridal gowns and accessories while interning for some of the biggest designers in that business. I attended Parsons School of Design (you might know the name from Bravo’s Project Runway series) where I worked toward a Bachelor of Fine Art degree, and ultimately decided to bring my creative juices back to the Midwest where I graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin at Madison (Go Badgers!). In my senior year, I was awarded and completed a scholarship thesis on the history and origins of bridal traditions in multiple cultures.
