Nikki comes to us as a seasoned operator, and was drawn to the creativity and collaboration of the wedding and event industry, along with the level of passion vendors and couples pour into these special celebrations. She currently resides in the town of Genesee with her husband, daughter and 10 chickens. In her free time, you'll find her chasing one of them around outside or getting her hands dirty in the garden. Faves: treasure hunting (aka thrifting/antiquing), true crime podcasts, working on DIY/home renovation projects with her husband.
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).
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. She's known her husband, Alex, since middle school. The newlyweds exchanged vows just this year! 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.
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 recent newlywed (she married the love of her life, Travis, in October!), 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!
Dee is ever the worker bee, comfortable with working long hours, hustling as she goes. In her free time, she’s an avid foodie always looking to create incredible dishes to feed the masses. She knows just how special celebrations can be (she's also a recent newlywed!). During events, Dee has you covered, ensuring details are tended to and your family and friends are well taken care of.
Faves: cooking (she’s got mad skills in the kitchen), hanging out with friends, and driving around in her Jeep!
Carson’s calming presence keeps our couples at ease! He has a great sense of humor and is always eager to lend a hand in any way he can. When asked what he loves about the wedding industry, he replied, “It’s hard not to have a good time when everyone around you is smiling and having fun!” Along with their cat (Salem) and dog (Gunner), Carson and his wife, Sabrina, reside right here in Burlington. Faves: cooking, gardening, and hiking.
Andrew was born and raised in Burlington, so if you’re a local, be sure to say hi! You'll see him early in the morning and around ceremony time - he's a pro at prepping and setting up our event spaces, making sure they're ready to go for your big day! Faves: make-up artistry (his talents are quite exceptional!), musical theater, talking & hanging out with close friends and family.
Formerly a bar owner of 15 years, Marie describes becoming Mercantile Hall's Bar Manager as "the perfect garnish on an already delicious cocktail." Since joining our team in December 2019, she has provided excellent service to our guests and has truly loved bartending at weddings and events. In her words, "This isn’t work; it’s a celebration!" Faves: California coastline (especially Big Sur!), hiking, good food (she was a Food Tour Guide in Milwaukee for six years), and dark beer.
Kristina is our resident superhero. She has the challenge of managing our marketing efforts. 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!
We’re so excited to welcome Kristi to the team as our Bookkeeper! Her high efficiency and can-do attitude make her the perfect fit for the job. She loves the energy surrounding weddings, as it’s such a happy time in people’s lives. Kristi has lived in Wisconsin for most of her life, and enjoys spending time with her husband and son when she’s not crunching numbers in the office. Faves: being outdoors (she loves riding 4 wheelers!), spending time with her family, and camping.
Tabitha works in the HR offices for out parent company, BEDO Brands. Her organizational skills are perfectly suited to her fast paced role and despite her lengthy to-do lists, her smile brightens every room she walks into. She is a mom of two beautiful children, so she’s a busy woman. Tabitha and her husband spend time with their kids on the water in the summer and are very involved supporting their community.
Faves: all things around the lake, spending quality time with her kiddos and working with local organizations to help other moms.
