Hello and Welcome!
I’m Tarah Bender; the founder of the Bendora Wedding Gallery and creator of the Petite Wedding Package. Along side me you will see Patti (my mom), who is our day to day manager and wedding officiant extraordinaire! In the middle is my lovely daughter Reese, who also helps out at the gallery from time to time. We all welcome you to the Bendora Wedding Gallery!
After working many years in the event planning industry, and having planned dozens of large scale weddings, I noticed a niche in the market that wasn’t being served. Many couples would contact me looking for a beautiful and elegant wedding experience, but were not necessarily interested in investing tens of thousands of dollars to do so. That is where the inspiration for the Bendora Wedding Chapel began. Utilizing the longstanding relationships I had cultivated with vendors in the wedding industry, I was able to package a Petite Wedding Experience without sacrificing quality or style. We are the only chapel in town that offers this level of service and attention to detail.
In addition to our Petite Weddings, we also curated the Worn Once Bridal Consignment Boutique which hosts a once a month “Wed the Dress” event, as well as offering traditional off-site wedding planning services. As you can see, we absolutely LOVE weddings and hope to have the opportunity to work with you!
