My incredibly supportive husband Jeremiah, our children and I are KC natives and love. our. city! Growing up in a family of all girls, I never remember a time where I was not playing bride and getting into all kinds of lovely shades of blue eye shadow. In fact, I quite possibly had my entire wedding planned by the time I was 6. Owning White Carpet Bride and working with an AMAZING team (Seriously. They’re the BEST!) and beyond wonderful brides every weekend is truly my life’s calling. Having high standards of excellence and keeping ahead of the trend curve fuel my passion. I crave the different. I desire the flawless. I dream of the perfect. Helping a bride and her girlies look and feel absolutely stunning is my devotion. When I meet you, I want to know everything. I want to know your inspiration, your color story, what your florals are going to look like, your engagement story, your favorite cup of coffee! I want to take it all and create your perfect Wedding Day look. All eyes are on you! I want you to truly be White Carpet Ready.

I’ve always loved weddings! As a kid watching The Wedding Planner I just KNEW I’d be a wedding planner with a super cool headset. Clearly, I followed my heart – just in a slightly different direction. As I grew up, I found a passion for beauty but always loved the wedding industry. After I graduated cosmetology school, I worked in a salon and taught at a cosmetology school but felt something was missing. After having my son, Eli, and with much encouragement from my amazing husband, I made the leap into the world of wedding beauty with White Carpet Bride. I truly couldn’t think of a more perfect way to combine my two passions! There’s no better feeling than making someone feel their best; it is even better when it’s their wedding day!

I’ve always absolutely loved the beauty industry. After graduating high school early, I completed cosmetology school and jumped into working behind the chair, I found myself reaching for more. While working in a salon I was introduced into the wedding industry and fell in love! Nothing makes me happier than seeing a bride light up on her wedding day and making others feel beautiful. Hearing about bride’s everyday lives and their dream day inspires me to create the best possible looks for their special day.

I love the beauty industry. In 2007, I began my career behind the chair in Lawrence. 5 years later I dove into teaching cosmetology. It made me have even more respect and appreciation for the amazing world of hair and makeup. I am thrilled to be a part of the wedding industry. It is my goal to create the perfect look for each person. I am honored to be a part of the best day ever for brides.

Having a passion for art at an early age, it was no surprise to anyone I would later become a makeup artist. Through college, I found my niche in the bridal industry and later graduated from the Skin and Makeup Institute of Arizona. I moved back to Kansas City and continued my career in the beauty industry, and have enjoyed every moment of it. For 13 years, I’ve loved working side by side with brides creating their perfect look for their most special day. It’s such a pleasure being a part of someone’s wedding and getting to help make them feel beautiful.

Growing up I always had a huge passion for the beauty and fashion industry. I dreamed of having a career doing makeup but had no idea how to get there. After coming back from school in Colorado, I spent several years training and learning all about the cosmetic industry until I finally came across White Carpet Bride. It has been an absolute dream working with this amazing group of ladies and I love that I am able to be a part of making a bride’s big day even more special!

A passion for providing individually-tailored and creatively-driven services to clients was instilled in me from a very young age due to both of my parents owning their own businesses, with my mom specifically working in the beauty industry. For the last 15 years, friends have come to me to do their hair and makeup for a multitude of different occasions, which has encouraged me to continuously seek out new techniques through various educational platforms. When I was given the opportunity to begin working with White Carpet Bride in 2019, I couldn’t have been more excited! The energy of a bridal party on a wedding day is electric and I feel grateful to have a part in making each person feel their absolute best!

I’ve worked in the weddings industry pretty much since I was old enough to work. I’ve always taken an interest in making that “big day” run beautifully. My boss Mikayla has always been a role model for me ever since she did my hair and makeup for my mothers wedding back in 2012. She sparked my love for weddings and I’ve been hooked ever since! Weddings bring out a true happiness in people that is so rewarding for me to be apart of. I love knowing that their day was made just a little bit more magical because of me and our crew!
