Carrie Costa

Born and raised in Oregon, Carrie grew up enjoying all that the Willamette Valley has to offer. She studied Education at Western Oregon University before moving to Bend, where she discovered her destiny in design. In 2010, Carrie moved to Portland to study at the Floral Design Institute and pursue a love of floral design. While she continued nurturing her passion as a wedding and event floral designer, she discovered her love for coordinating. As Carrie began planning private special events, she was pushed to explore a career in the wedding industry beyond just florals.

Carrie has an obsession with detail and organization, and a strong eye for design and color. Coordinating weddings for Bridal Bliss is the icing on the cake for her and a true fit to her personality. Clients love her calming yet take charge demeanor and zest for life.

Outside of planning, Carrie loves to spend time outdoors with her son Isaac and energetic beagle Ace. She loves running, hiking, traveling and trying new restaurants!

Bridal Bliss was amazing! Carrie was so helpful, reliable, and always available to me while planning my wedding. I really appreciated how knowledgeable she is about wedding vendors and who was best to use for my style and budget. Using Bridal Bliss was the best decision I made for my wedding...Carrie and her team really helped relieve the stress of the planning process and my wedding day. Thanks to Bridal Bliss, my wedding turned out even better than I had imagined!
