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!

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!

Art has always been a huge passion of mine. I grew up in a very artistic household with my Dad as an Illustrator and my Mom as a Hair/Makeup Artist. I knew since the beginning I wanted to do both Illustration and Makeup, and in High School I did just that. Combining both and doing intricate Face/Body painting. I was able to build up a sturdy portfolio on social media and attend an Art Institute. I quickly realized the beauty industry was my route and began Cosmetology school where I finally felt like I could do what I was meant to do. My favorite part about doing makeup is not only the endless possibilities for creativity but seeing the excitement on our clients faces when they see the finished look
