About

Hi! I’m Dora, & I adore weddings.

I’m a former science teacher turned writer. My mom & dad both owned businesses (antique shop & CPA firm), so entrepreneurial-ship is in my blood!

I created Centre for Northern Families in 2011 (time flies!) to be a niche wedding blog to serve as a resource while providing vendors a venue in which to showcase their work. I recently added DIY projects & travel to make Centre for Northern Families a complete guide.

Vintage things (did you read that my mom owned an antique shop?), kittens, & thrifting all bring me great joy in addition to being with my kids (& granddaughter!) & cheering them on in life. I also relish date nights with my husband.

My zest for life & love for people inspired me to start a resource to bring brides-to-be & quality vendors together in a relaxed, modern way through a fun, upscale resource & idea wedding blog. What began as a business for me, has turned into so much more. I have enjoyed creating a community of vendors that I truly can call friends – that has been such a joy for me. I hope that you get to know them through my blog & that you learn to love them just as much as I do.

Happy planning!
