Because theknot.com forgot about Spokane, WA…
My name is Rachel and Apple Brides was born out of my experience planning a wedding in Spokane… from Ireland. I was married in October of 2009 at the Davenport Hotel and found Spokane’s wedding presence online awful, and unlike most US cities, huge sites like The Knot and Martha Stewart didn’t even mention Spokane. I couldn’t find a comprehensive vendor directory anywhere. There were no pictures of venues, price lists, cake portfolios and most of all, I couldn’t find reviews from REAL brides about the vendors I was considering.
Although, I’m originally from Spokane, I spent three years as Editor of Ireland’s largest wedding media company, WeddingsOnline.ie and B Magazine. I’m no expert, but I’m passionate about weddings and with a little help from the Spokane wedding community, my goal is to make this a resource for Spokane/ Coeur d’ Alene area brides to find everything they need to make wise decisions about their wedding

One of the best things that happened to Apple Brides in 2011 was adding Melissa to the team! Born and raised in Coeur d’ Alene, Melissa brought a missing Idaho voice to the Apple Brides vision. She has experience in both the beauty and online media industries and was hired to do sales for the site, but it didn’t take long for us to realize that her talents were far too vast to be pigeon-holed. She’s now become the marketing director/photo shoot stylist/networking guru/fill in make-up artist and all around employee of the year for Apple Brides!
Melissa works hard to make sure the quality vendors in the Spokane/Coeur d’ Alene area are easily able to connect with the amazing local couples who read Apple Brides. She keeps our directory up to date and handles vendor marketing.
