Nora Sheils

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 industry, she decided it was time to take her expertise to the next level. Bridal Bliss opened its doors in 2002 and has since risen through the ranks as one of the Northwest's top event planning firms. Nora's savvy leadership has guided her team to earn several awards as well as international recognition. She has appeared regularly as a expert on several local television shows including KATU’s AM Northwest, KPTV 12’s MORE Good Day Oregon and KGW News.

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 two sons, Gavin and Dylan. She 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 detail, 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.

Nora Sheils excelled because she was incredibly organized, well connected, accessible and communicated at a very high professional level. My real appreciation of her incredible work came together the week of the event as all of the pieces came together. Every great orchestra needs a great conductor and every great football team needs a great quarterback; a memorable wedding needs Nora Sheils and her Bridal Bliss team.
