I have been in the wedding industry for eight years now! I stepped into the industry my freshman year of college as a Special Occasion Dress Consultant at a corporate bridal shop. I quickly moved my way up to a Bridal Consultant and realized I loved all things weddings. My senior year in college I started working at Blush Bridal Boutique, a locally owned wedding shop in Eugene, Oregon, where I would work the next four years. I became a Bridal Consultant, Tuxedo Specialist, Fashion Show Coordinator, Social Media Manager/Writer and then a Manager of the shop on top of those positions. During that time, I also worked for Mark Longstreet Photography for two years as a writer, blogger and personal assistant. I know the industry, the latest trends and I have strong connections with elite wedding vendors in the Eugene and Portland areas. I have an everlasting passion for weddings and special occasions! You can always bet that I’m helping plan a party for someone at any given time of the year. I believe it’s a passion that will never grow useless!
I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but grew up in Gresham, Oregon until I was twelve, when we moved to the Eugene area. I lived on a farm in Lorane and attended middle and high school at Crow. I attended college at the University of Oregon from 2007-2011 where I majored in English and minored in Comparative Literature. I received my Bachelors of Arts Degree in the fall of ’11.
May, 4, 2013 I married my high school sweetheart after nearly nine years from the day we first started dating in 2004, when I was 15. Our breakfast wedding was in Oregon City right where the Oregon Trail ends at Abernethy Center.Finding and designing the decor we had at our wedding was one of my favorite things during our engagement! I opened Stepping Stone Wedding Rentals and Events July 10, 2013. We are SO grateful for all of our clients and truly care and are honored to help make your parties, weddings and events special!
