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 baby boy in my arms.
