What inspired you to launch your own business?

I have loved weddings since I was young. Growing up, my mom did alterations out of our home and I would gawk at brides and their beautiful gowns! Events have been a passion of mine from the early years and I worked in all different aspects of the industry. When I was finishing up college at Gonzaga University, I submitted my business plan to a competition and won! It supplied me with start-up funds right out of college and that is how Bridal Bliss was born in 2002. It has been quite a ride!


What keeps you passionate about weddings?

My favorite part of the job is forming relationships with clients and being there day-of to see it all happen. Some of my dearest friends have been past clients! It is so fulfilling to bring an event to fruition and seeing a truly happy couple brings me so much joy.

Every great orchestra needs a great conductor and every great football team needs a great quarterback; a memorable wedding needs Bridal Bliss." Joe O. - Father of the Bride
