Born and raised in Portland, Nora Sheils has been smitten with weddings since she was a child. After graduating from Gonzaga University with a degree in Psychology & Business and working several years in the bridal industry, she decided it was time to take her expertise to the next level. Bridal Bliss opened its doors for business in 2002 and has since risen through the ranks as one of Portland and Seattle’s top event planning firms. Nora's savvy leadership has guided her team to earn several awards as well as national and international recognition. She has appeared regularly as a wedding expert on several local television shows including KATU’s AM Northwest, KPTV 12’s Better Portland and MORE Good Day Oregon, KOIN 6’s Studio 6, KGW News, Weddings Portland Style, and Portland Bridal TV.
When Nora is not on the job, you can find her doing what she loves most...spending quality time with friends and family including her husband Tyler (whom she met at a wedding!) and son, Gavin. She also loves sitting on the board of Levé, checking out Portland's vibrant food scene, sipping Prosecco, getting sucked into Pinterest and long chats with her mom.
Nora's attention to details, strict standard for quality, fun enthusiasm, and comforting demeanor put her clients at ease and have catapulted her as a leader in the wedding industry.
