Emily Campbell

Founder and Creative Director

Jaimie is the Bella content manager, responsible for both the website and social media accounts, and has cut her teeth as an event producer alongside the Bella team. She’s a Massachusetts native who, after eight years in New York City, answered the mountain’s siren call in early 2015. Weddings are in her blood: She started her career in the bridal industry as an editor for Colin Cowie Weddings before becoming the Real Weddings Editor at BRIDES Magazine. Here in the Rockies, she manages Bella’s website, blog, and social media accounts - when she’s not on-site helping Emily and Samantha execute amazing weddings and events around Colorado. She knows it’s all in the details, which translates into flawlessly steamed dresses, perfectly-aligned escort cards, and a train that is expertly fluffed before a bride heads down the aisle.
