About Us

Hi, Welcome to Sota Brides!

We are Cait and Ali. We LOVE weddings and thats why we're here! We became friends in 2012 while we were both on the dance team at St. Catherine University. Cait started the Minnesota Brides Facebook page while planning her wedding and well, that turned out to get bigger than either of us could have ever imagined. We both now run the group and have started Sota Brides to share our personal insights on wedding planning and create fun events for brides to be. 

We hope you love wedding planning as much as we did, and well if not we hope we can make it at least somewhat easier for you. Happy Planning! 

Ali

I love planning parties! Give me an idea and I will run wild with it, probably so much so, you'll be annoyed with my random thoughts about how we could make it better. Bachelorette parties are probably my favorite because I can come up with ridiculous punny games. 

Outside of weddings, I received my Bachelors of Science in Exercise and Sport Science in 2016 and my Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2018. I currently practice full time as a physical therapist & love working with dancers!

Put me around people and give me a theme and I will have a categorized Pinterest board done in no time! I am all about the details and am a firm believer that the little things make the biggest difference. Finding ways to make your event unique is my jam. 

 

By day I’m a Sales/Marketing guru at a Minnesota- based corporation. My undergrad was in Healthcare Sales and I recently got my MBA.
