Krissy – Stylist
Krissy is our new asset to Strut in Tempe, AZ. She was born and raised in Seattle, WA and just arrived in the Valley. Krissy joined our team with over four years of bridal experience in Seattle’s bridal industry. It’s Krissy’s passion to obtain that fairy tale experience in saying “YES TO THE DRESS”. She said, “My main focus is tending to each customer’s need to feel confident and beautiful, each time they set foot out the dressing room.” There is nothing more important to Krissy than to relate to each person and create that trust like you would be shopping with your best friend. When Krissy is not helping with wedding dress dreams coming true, she is soaking up the sun and exploring everything Arizona has to offer.
Stefani – Inventory Manager + Stylist
Although Stefani is new to the bridal industry, she is already in love. She came to us with a ton of customer service experience, so her transition into bridal was an easy one. She says that her favorite part of a new bride’s experience is the look in her and her family’s eyes when she finds THE dress. She loves it even more when she reads emails from brides telling us that their partner cried a little. Who doesn’t love happy tears? “I love that there’s a place in town where women who typically feel uncomfortable shopping, can go to find a dress for one of the most important days of their lives. They get to feel gorgeous, because in the words of Earl Dibbles Jr, ‘girls are like country roads, the best ones got curves!'” When Stefani isn’t at Strut, she is playing fetch with her two puppies at the dog park, or indulging in a scoop of ice cream with her boyfriend.

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!
