Stephanie – Stylist
Stephanie has been in the bridal industry for over a year. She loves being a stylist mainly because of the joy it not only brings her, but the joy she gets to see the bride experience. She loves the moment the bride tries on her dream dress and falls in love with it; having their eyes light up makes her day! Happiness is the key to success overall so making the bride feel as beautiful as she looks is a rewarding part of her day. Stephanie loves to help all of you beautiful women out there be able to find the look that you will cherish forever. She is also going to be a bride too, so she definitely understands the struggle of finding that perfect look for her dream day! She is a Washington native and misses the rain and seasons like crazy! She says, “There is nothing like curling up with a good book in a big fluffy blanket with some good coffee on a rainy day!” She can not wait to meet all of the beautiful brides who come to Strut looking for their “look of a lifetime.”
Chandler – Stylist
We’re excited to introduce Chandler. She is new to the bridal world, but she is already in love! Chandler says, “I was a Strut Bride back in June 2015, and it was such a great experience I just needed to be in on the processes of helping others find their dream dress like I did. I fell in love with an Allure Lace sleeveless dress here at Strut and added my own custom sleeve, to make it more modest. I am obsessed with helping our brides feel comfortable in their own beautiful skin!” As a recent curvy bride, Chandler’s advice to others is, “DON’T be nervous! I think as Curvy girls we automatically think that shopping for our dress is going to be more challenging, not as fun, and we shouldn’t expect much. But that is SO far from the truth! You deserve to have the most amazing experience, and it shouldn’t be any different because you have some gorgeous curves!”

Ann – 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!
