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).
Stephanie was born & raised in Burlington and is now raising her two adorable sons here, too.
Faves: authentic ramen, a warm cup of tea, & historic dramas (sucker for love stories).
When we all met Racheal we knew she is a perfect fit for our team. She is a West Allis girl who after graduation from UW-Stout spent time in Australia, adding to her list of over 20 countries she’s had the pleasure of visiting. As an event manager she is experienced, calm and has great sense of style to ensure your dream day comes together wonderfully. Racheal and her fiancé live with their two cats and are enjoying their new home!

Nicole has been part of the BEDO Family for years. She was a bridal consultant at Bon Bon Belle. She loved weddings so much that she is now an event manager! Nicole's energy and smile are contagious. She always brightens up any room. As an event manager she is energetic, experienced and knows how to help with every detail. Nicole is a mom of 3 beautiful kids so she is used to multitasking!
Faves: summer sunshine, spending time with her kids, and making others smile!
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. During events, Dee has you covered, ensuring details are tended to and your family and friends are well taken care of.

Amanda jumped into her role at Mercantile Hall with no hesitation. She's a team player with a friendly personality and is always willing to lend a helping hand.

Faves: chocolate chip cookies, her sweet dog Piper Mae, and snuggling on the couch with her fiancé while watching The Office or New Girl.
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."

Faves: California coastline (especially Big Sur!), hiking, good food (she was a Food Tour Guide in Milwaukee for six years), and dark beer.
