Having herself been married to the man of her dreams for 10 years, Hope’s obsession with weddings goes beyond the beauty and romance of the day and lies in a true belief in marriage and that your wedding day is just the beginning of your happily ever after.
Hope’s experience in the wedding industry began in 2000. She held management positions in couture bridal salons in Chicago and in Denver where she worked with thousands of brides and their families. In 2006, Hope took a short break from bridal to earn her Bachelors Degree in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Colorado where she graduated Summa Cum Laude and top of her class. After 18 months of gaining experience in interior design project management, Hope’s love of working with brides led her back to the wedding industry and inspired her to begin her company, The Wedding Studio.
