Hey everyone!

First and foremost, I want to thank you for stopping by to read my bridal style and DIY blog. I hope you find what you are searching for, for all of your wedding planning needs… and then some. This is the section where you can learn a little bit more about me, the wedding dress designer, bridal stylist, author, life seeker and girl next door. Many may know me from my appearance on ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette’ season 9 where I met my husband Chris Siegfried, but long before handing out roses and wearing pretty dresses, I always had a passion for bridal, design, and the desire to help others.

That’s where this blog comes in. Established in 2013, I set out to share beautiful wedding inspiration, wedding day tips and advice, as well as personal life events or thoughts to help inspire brides and women of all ages. I have a decade experience working in the bridal industry. First as a bridal stylist, helping brides find the dress of their dreams, to an accessories and jewelry designer, to a wedding gown designer and currently as the author of ‘My Fairytale Wedding: Planning your dream wedding without breaking the bank’.

I have a deep respect for bridal and the significance that weighs on one of the most special days in a woman’s life. For that reason, I vow to provide and prepare you for your wedding day with beautiful inspiration from real weddings, DIY tutorials, styling tips for your shape and the best advice I can offer to make sure your wedding is a dream come true.

I am a girl-on-the-go with a love for nature, travel and life. When I’m not dreaming up a design or sharing my thoughts on here, you can find me next to my husband’s side, exploring the great Pacific Northwest, our puppy in tow and soon enough, a baby boy in my arms.
