After all the amazing bridal appointments you’ve been involved with, what would you say is your favourite part of a bridal appointment?
My favourite part of a bridal appointment is the first time we meet the bride and the people most important to her. It is the start of something magical!
When you think of your ultimate dream wedding, is it in spring/summer/fall or winter?
Summer and somewhere by the water!
Are you on board with team veil or are you on team no veil?
I’m going to have to side with team no veil on this one!
Aside from seeing the beautiful dress the bride chose, what would you say if you favourite part of a wedding?
Easy answer, the first kiss!
Why do you love working at TMB?
Being around so many young, exceptionally talented women every day.
Based on current bridal trends, what is your favourite trend modern brides are adopting?
My favourite trend is not just specific to bridal fashion, it is that brides are creating their own traditions; no rules, doing it their way!
To wrap things up, can you let us in on three things you think our TMB brides and followers would be surprised to learn about you?
I practice yoga every morning and just started taking a barre class once a week.
I love to garden. Working outside all day and getting my hands dirty is my idea of a great day off!
I used to have my motorcycle license!
Bonus Donna fun-fact: Donna was the project manager responsible for helping transform our space at the Petrie Building to be the beautiful bridal oasis it is today! Thanks Donna!
