Brides by Jessa Interview

Brides by Jessa

I’ve been here a little over a year now. I was very interested in working with a small business so that I get to benefit the community around me, especially getting to work with the bride and groom through the entire process. My degree was in art history so I really focus on getting people to look their best through visual elements.

Eastbank Venue Interview

Stephanie Neighbor-Kubik and daughter Ellie

We bought Eastbank in August of 2020 (which is quite funny because we were in the midst of a pandemic).” My daughter Ellie and I are business partners and she had worked for the previous owner of Eastbank. I had an opportunity to purchase the business and put her skills to work. It’s been an adventure for sure!
