Maggie – Stylist

Maggie has worked at Strut Bridal for over a year and brings with her a variety of professional experiences including sales and personal shopping. “I’m a naturally observant person with a creative soul, and as a consultant with Strut, I am driven to inspire one person at a time to discover and acknowledge the lovely woman in the mirror become a bride during their shopping experience. I strive to provide excellent customer service, guidance to make your vision a reality, creative input for different options, and the support you need to arrive at the decision that is best for you.” “Through my own life experiences, I know that some of us can be our own biggest critics, but when we open ourselves to our beautiful truths, we free ourselves to live our happiest, fullest life without limits. I use this personal experience to encourage an openness in shopping and to de-escalate any stress during your appointment – after all, it’s your day to shine and fall in love (with your dress)!” Outside of her work as a consultant, Maggie can be found hanging out at the beach; helping communities through her work in public health; traveling to visit her family in Texas; checking out a variety of sporting/music/comedy events; and spending quality time with her husband and her super happy dog.

Having the opportunity to make a strong and positive impact on peoples lives is magical. I strive daily to connect with and guide my brides towards what they desire.” Winifred is extremely passionate about music and lets her love for it guide her life!

Ann – Owner + Senior Stylist

Ann is the co-owner of Strut and splits her time between the Long Beach and Tempe locations. Still, she loves working hands-on with brides and keeping current on bridal trends. Ann was inspired to open Strut after her own disappointing wedding dress shopping experience years ago. Now she’s happy to be a Strut Bride who rocked a fitted gown for her five year vow renewal in October 2014. “I just think every woman, regardless of their size, has the right to have the full bride experience, to try on amazing, current, trendy wedding dresses. We all deserve to look and feel amazing on our wedding day.” Her favorite website for wedding planning inspiration is Off Beat Bride. “I get so excited when one of our brides is featured on that site!” When Ann isn’t working, she spends time with her husband and crazy rescue dog, Chauncey. She tries every new restaurant in town, so if you’re looking for something yummy to eat in the Phoenix area, ask Ann!
