I have worked at Charlotte’s since July 2015 and my favorite part of helping brides is getting to meet brides of all different walks of life. I’m such a people person and this is the best job to get to meet others!
Do you have a favorite moment/story from working at Charlotte’s?
How could I possibly choose one? A recent favorite moment was with a bride who came from afar with her family and had many appointments in the Portland area, with Charlotte’s being her first stop. She came back the next day with her family stating that she saw many gowns, including her favorite she loved at Charlotte’s twice elsewhere. She decided to come back because of the great experience she had here. In the short time we spent together, I developed a great relationship with the bride, and really enjoyed working with the bride and her family. I am so glad I was able to make her wedding dreams come true!
What kind of advice would you give your brides about dress shopping?
Make it a fun day! Bring at most two (or three) of you trust the most and who you know will defer to your opinion, but will look out for you. Once you find one you love, stick with it! Otherwise, if you keep shopping, you could get overwhelmed and become discouraged, which would be the worst, since this is such a fun moment of the wedding preparation!
What do you like to do when you aren’t working at Charlotte’s?
I love spending time with my family and friends, whether we are lounging around enjoying a movie or out cheering for the Timbers and Blazers. I also love to read, and am lately binging on historical novels. You’ll also find me taking photos, scrapbooking, traveling, obsessing over my dog, crafting, baking, and loving everything Portland has to offer!
