About Gretchen


I'm a born and bred Jersey girl. Raleigh is my home, but I'll always have a soft spot for good pizza, bagels and "Livin' on a Prayer".

 I attended Bloomsburg University Of Pennsylvania for English Linguistics, which eventually translated to an admissions role at the Paul Mitchell School of Raleigh. I'm a sucker for an  epic love story - so much so, in fact, that I decided to live one! I recently got engaged to my incredible fiancé, a hunky Australian, whom I met halfway around the world in Munich, Germany.

I love hearing people's stories about how they got to where they are. It's also what I love about weddings. Hearing your story - and ensuring that it is the focus of your wedding day - is an absolute joy! I've always thrived on taking care of small background details so those around me can relax. This is the most important day of your life,  and you should enjoy every minute of it.
