Junk Bonanza is pleased to kick off its series of periodic profiles on local partners participating in the inaugural inspirational Weddings Lab!
First up: Meet our blogging friend, Heather!
Heather Dempsey

Business name:


Favorite wedding decor:
I am obsessed with chalkboard art and antlers. Throw in a barn and it’s heaven!

Your passion:

I am relatively new to the world of blogging but had been style-casting within the wedding industry for the past three years for a large invitation and stationery company. GetMarried in the new blog format is only a year old but continues to gain followers in all forms of social media. Growing up in the world of antique dealers with my Grandmother and Mom, making what’s old new again, comes second nature. I love digging and discovering and curating collections, and often showcasing them in a fresh, new light. And what better place to infuse personality with vintage treasures and finds than within a wedding. Instantly comfortable, instantly personal, everything a wedding should be (as well as your EVERY day!) GetMarried is truly my happy place!

I have a Business degree specializing in Marketing from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wis., and grew up on a hobby farm in central Illinois.

You love weddings because:
Weddings are THE best celebration. Full of friends, family and love! There are not that many occasions in life where you can surround yourself with the most important people in your life and have a party that reflects you!

No one would ever guess you…
My entrepreneurial spirit started at a young age. When I was 11, I raised rabbits and at my peak, I had 250 plus ?! I also showed them in 4H and have some trophies. Who has a trophy with a rabbit on top? Giggle!

Data bank:

We can’t wait for you to meet Heather at the Weddings Lab. Don’t forget your camera and your notebook! You are going to want to remember this! See you there!
