Destiny Shannon

My name is Destiny Shannon and I live here in Richland Center, WI, with my husband Chris, and our three daughters Julianna, Clara & Amelia. I have my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from Viterbo University, along with many years of experience in the Wedding Industry. I absolutely love working with Bride-to-Be’s and helping them find the wedding dress they have always dreamed of. It is such an exciting time in their life, and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing the smile and happy tears on a woman’s face when she has found “the gown” that makes her feel truly beautiful. I feel so blessed that I have the opportunity to have a career that can bring so much joy to both myself and the brides that visit our store. Your wedding gown is one of the most special and memorable purchases you will make, and I am committed to making that experience magical for you.

In my previous employment at a bridal store, I had the opportunity to visit National Bridal Markets and purchase inventory for the store. I remember sitting there during one of the fashion shows, and thinking to myself, “wouldn’t that be incredible if someday I was back here purchasing bridal gowns for my own Bridal Boutique and living my dream of owning my own business?” Well, seven years later, I was able to live out that dream when I attended the National Bridal Market in Chicago this April, with my two lovely business partners. It is there we were able to purchase all the beginning inventory to open our very own store – Dreams Bridal Boutique, LLC. You see, dreams really do come true, and as we help you fulfill yours, we are living our own as well. Thank you for giving me this opportunity, and I consider it an honor and privilege to serve you. I hope that you will stop in and see us soon and let us help make your Dreams a reality!

Stephanie Perkins

My name is Stephanie Perkins, and I am so excited to share my newest adventure with you. Opening a bridal boutique has been a dream of mine for many years and I cannot believe it is finally coming true.

My background has always been in customer service. My first job out of high school was in our hometown jewelry store helping customers find just the right piece of jewelry for that special someone. Whether it was for Mother’s Day, a birthday or that special diamond that said “Will you marry me,“ I always enjoyed seeing their smiles when they knew they had found just what they were looking for. I cannot wait to see that same reaction on friends and family when our brides step out of the dressing rooms in “the one” wedding dress they have always dreamt of.

I know that was true for me when I married my husband Brian, I felt like the princess that every little girl imagines. We have been married since 1999 and live in Richland Center with our three children, Tora, Teige and Tate. Brian is a grain farmer with acreage throughout Richland County and also manages our rental buildings. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Nursing from Winona State University and have been employed in Labor and Delivery at a local rural hospital since 1999. You may not realize it but customer service is still a big part of my job in the healthcare field. I love seeing the families bonding with their newest addition and knowing that I gave them the best care possible.

I want to continue giving that kind of personal care to our customers, whether thy are coming in for a bridal gown, prom dress or a special accessory for a night on the town. No matter what you may be looking for, we are bound to have it here at Dreams Bridal Boutique.
