Tessa, a Pacific Northwest native, graduated from the University of Washington (Go Huskies!) with a degree in Business and Marketing. After working in retail at Nordstrom during college and post-graduation years, she decided to "jump ship" and move to the sunshine and ocean breezes of Southern California. Tessa began working for a start-up hair salon concept called Drybar. She quickly fell in love with the corporate side of Drybar with brand marketing, event planning and ultimately all things beauty related.
After 6 amazing and opportunistic years in Newport Beach, Tessa planned her big move back home to Seattle after saying, "yes!" to the love of her life, Brandon. During the whirlwind summer of 2016, getting reacquainted with her hometown of Seattle and working remotely for Drybar, she found a new love in the process – planning her own wedding! As Tessa reconnected with her network of former coworkers and sorority sisters she was introduced to Bridal Bliss and hasn't looked back since. The bond was instant and in 2016, Tessa joined the growing Seattle team as Lead Coordinator!
Tessa is currently enjoying focusing her energies, leveraging her attention to detail and passion for organization and planning by helping newly engaged couples bring to life their vision for their big day. Aside from planning weddings, Tessa enjoys spending time with her husband and family, traveling and an active lifestyle, especially on a sunny & 75 kind of day.
