Meet the Designer

  of  Gilded Vine Creations

 

I'm Cori and I'm so glad you've decided to stop by!  I live in Southern Minnesota and am recently retired from my career as a web designer. My husband and I are empty nesters but we enjoy spending time with our grown children and occasionally babysitting their dogs: Indy, the Corgi, and Hazel, the rescued Mini Pinscher/Dachshound.

My creative talents were fostered in my youth through my mom and 4H. Every summer, I entered several sewing, home improvement, and hobby projects in my local county fair.  I won many ribbons including my first grand champion ribbon for sewing a full-length dress at age 9! 

I’ve been creating all things beautiful for more than 30 years and over that time Gilded Vine Creations has evolved and grown. What started out as a “side hustle” selling handmade textiles and seasonal floral and home decor at craft shows soon blossomed into wedding design and event styling for family and clients. 

I absolutely love to learn new things. Attending wedding design shows and participating in hands-on workshops are my favorite ways to bring exciting new trends, products, and design concepts to my clients. 

Gilded Vine Creations specializes in stylized weddings, garden-inspired florals, and planning services. A wonderfully planned celebration means your only job will be to enjoy it!

I look forward to connecting with you and planning your dream day together!
