stephanie | Co-founder & venue manager

Stephanie is the resident curator of design & events for Mercantile Hall and The Urb Garden. She has over a decade of experience producing weddings and brings a tremendous sense of calm & effectiveness to assisting couples with their events. She was the one who whispered "what if" into Wendy's ear a few years back, which led to "let's do it." The rest is history (aka, the birth of Mercantile Hall).

Faves: authentic ramen, a warm cup of tea, & historic dramas (sucker for love stories).

Calyn | Director of Marketing

When she walked into our lives and into the interview room, each of us found ourselves smiling from ear to ear and on the edge of our seats with excitement (not that's a tell tale sign that we know we've got someone in front of us that we want to work with for a very long time). What made us so excited was her overall marketing boss babeness, and her beautiful strategic brain as she went on to articulate all the various ways she wants to strengthen our brands. She is amazing and we are so lucky to have this crazy awesome lady on our team!

Faves: snuggling with her daughter, all things Disney, & laughing at stand up comedy!

Her skills as a photographer and her amazing creativity will shine through all aspects of Mercantile Hall's marketing! She is a team player through and through - you can always believe her when she says "it's fine, I got it." In her down time, Kristina enjoys being out on the lake and traveling with her husband.

Faves: photography, music (she worked at a radio station), and traveling!
