What is your favorite part about helping brides and working for Charlotte’s Weddings? How long have you worked here?
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? As someone who grew up in the Portland area and went to school here, I love it when I have family and friends come in to try on gowns with me! It’s special for me to be able to share my passion for my work with my family and friends. Sharing that special moment when they find their gown is icing on the cake! The connection we have as a team here at Charlotte’s is also what I love about working here- they’re not only my colleagues, but my friends!
What kind of advice would you give your brides about dress shopping?
Make it a fun day! Bring at most two (or three) of those whom 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 husband, our families, 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 bingeing on historical novels. You’ll also find me taking photos, scrapbooking, traveling, obsessing over my dogs Kevin & Piper, crafting, baking, and loving everything Portland has to offer!
