Bridal Loop was founded by a trio of Wedding Professionals with over fifty years experience in all aspects of the industry. They have worked with hundreds of couples to plan and execute the perfect wedding. Their extensive experience in Southern Maryland brings you a wealth of information all in one place! While the larger wedding websites have amazing resources, they often overlook our area and group us with one of the big cities. We all know that we love our area because it is NOT in the big cities!
Let us introduce the Bridal Loop Leadership:
Carole Fonfara always wanted to be a part of creating perfect weddings. This started as the youngest daughter of a large family that watched her mother create amazing wedding cakes for folks in their community. This led to working as the wedding coordinator at her church and then at a local banquet hall, where she is still making magic for engaged couples. Carole brings a knowledge of all of the mechanics involved in getting the ceremony, the guests, the wedding party and the reception moving like a well oiled machine. Her clients trust that they are in expert hands as she helps create the perfect celebration. Carole enjoys gardening, raising chickens, and spending time with her three children and their families in her free time.
Tracey Arter started her career as a full time teacher while raising two children in southern Anne Arundel County Public Schools. Tracey came into the world of weddings and catering after planning her own wedding with Trish Weaver. Having retired from teaching, Tracey has found her niche in working with couples planning the next chapter of their lives together. Tracey brings an amazing artistic talent for envisioning all of the details needed to create each wedding and reception to be a one of a kind event, reflecting everything special about that couple. Tracey enjoys spending any extra time away from the wedding industry with her family- especially her grandchildren- creating amazing and memorable activities for every holiday and family event.
Trish Weaver moved to Southern Maryland after graduating college to teach in St. Mary’s County Public Schools. When her third child (of five) was born, she left teaching to tend to the needs of her growing family. She then worked as a Nutrition Educator for the Child Care Food Program, and then decided to start baking and catering as a way to provide for the family while being flexible enough to go to school events, games, and meetings. Twenty eight years and 866 weddings later, the work continues. Her cafe and catering company have become a staple in the community, working with more than one generation of families all over Southern Maryland. As a wedding caterer, the work has expanded into all areas of the wedding industry to create a customized, unique wedding celebration for each couple. In her time away from the bustle of business, Trish travels to enjoy time with her children and grandchildren whenever possible–especially if a beach or a fabulous meal is involved!
The three founders of Bridal Loop have worked together on many weddings and events for the past ten years, each bringing specific skills to the work. You can be assured that they are bringing all of the best in Southern Maryland together in one convenient place! Welcome!
