MEET THE SQUAD

 

Earleen Garbe

Shop Owner

Having grown up in a family full of business owners and entrepreneurs, it was inevitable that Earleen would end up owning her own business one day. Who would have thought that a Criminology degree and 25 years with the Federal Government would eventually lead her to owning a bridal boutique with her brother and business partner, Lorenz Guarin. Always fascinated with event planning, weddings, fashion and beauty helped in Earleen’s decision to take the leap into running a bridal shop so when the opportunity presented itself in October 2016 she jumped at it. Earleen’s favourite part about owning a bridal shop is meeting new brides and working with them to find the dress of their dreams. She has worked extremely hard to bring new and emerging designers to Ottawa and her personal style shows through in the curated collections available at the shop.  Her hope for Revelle is to eventually be the go-to bridal shop for the modern bride. 

 
 

Cara McNaull

Couture Jewellery Designer  

Cara started Stor by Margot after her own engagement at the Taj Mahal in India. While there, she discovered that India showcased a whole new side of beauty when it came to precious stones and gold. When Revelle moved to their new location in Wellington West, Cara also made the move to carry the Stor Jewellery collection at the shop. Her eye for detail is evident in her intricate custom jewellery designs.  While at Revelle, Cara spends most of her time on consultations for Stor by Margot clients and occasionally steps in as a bridal stylist to assist brides-to-be in their dream dress selection. A creative designer at heart, Cara is a natural when it comes to assisting brides-to-be in their hunt for the perfect wedding dress. 

 
 

Rebecca Rowe

Alterations Specialist

Rebecca always had an interest in fashion, creating garments out of duct tape and crude hand sewing at a very young age. This passion followed her throughout her life as she pursued her love of creation to Europe, where she obtained her formal design education at ESMOD in Paris.  What originally stimulated Rebecca’s interest in bridal fashion was the image of her parents on their wedding day. A candid shot where the pair of them are laughing and holding each other. In Rebecca’s eyes, her mother’s wedding dress was the most beautiful dress, very on trend in the eighties, but to a young girl who loved fashion it was perfect. Their expressions of pure joy becoming the driving force behind her design and styling. A background in fashion and design gives Rebecca an edge when dealing with brides who are looking for their dream wedding dress. Rebecca’s own expertise in designing ready-to-wear women’s clothing extends to the bridal world where she is able to select the perfect wedding dress style to suit the bride’s silhouette.
