Mercantile Hall | Employee Headshot | Burlington, WI

Stephanie | Creative Director & Co-Founder

Stephanie is the resident curator of design for Mercantile Hall and our parent company, BEDO Brands. She has over a decade of experience producing weddings, and an eye for style and design. 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). Stephanie was born and raised in Burlington and is now raising her two adorable sons here, too.

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

Destiny | Event Manager

Paired with her experience in the hospitality and service industry, Destiny's cheery persona and passion for working with couples as they plan their celebration makes her the perfect fit for Mercantile Hall. A bride-to-be herself, Destiny spends her free time planning her own wedding with her fiancé, Alex, who she's known since middle school. She also loves her animal babies - one dog, two cats, and a saltwater fish tank full of fish and coral!

Faves: Making candles, baking, golf, reading, being outdoors, and traveling.

Amy | Event Manager

Amy is our newest addition to Mercantile Hall! Her warmth, energy and 1000-watt smile truly light up the room.

Jess | Event Coordinator

Jess comes to us from our sister company Bon Bon Belle, where she assisted so many brides in finding beautiful gowns for their weddings. As a bride-to-be (she's so excited to marry her fiancé, Travis!), she understands how special it is to plan a wedding - from falling in love with your dress, to saying "I Do!" on your big day. Her attention to detail and passion to help create beautiful moments makes her the perfect fit for her role as Event Coordinator. Outside of work, you'll find her watching her favorite sitcoms and reading any Colleen Hoover book she can get her hands on.

Faves: hosting family and friends, grabbing an iced coffee with her cousins, and going on Target runs with her best friend!
