The Team


Executive Event Coordinator

Lover of lists, planning, and building relationship with our couples, Johnna has been the perfect addition to The Standard team! With 10 years of customer service experience, she is passionate about making sure your day is as magical as you’ve always dreamed. When she’s not showing off our space or coordinating all of the details of your big day, she’s probably at brunch with her boyfriend, snuggling with their dogs Zeus + Finley, or bringing home a new plant to add to her collection.


Event Specialist

Sara has always been obsessed with all things weddings and has dreamed of being in the industry ever since she was a little girl, watching “The Parent Trap” on repeat! With a love of organization and clear communication Sara was a great addition to The Standard team three years ago. When she isn’t answering phone calls or emails she is hanging out with her baby boy Leo, teaching her Australian shepherd new tricks and drinking WAY too much iced coffee!


Event Specialist

With the feeling that she was definitely born in the wrong decade, Shiloh’s free-spirited sense of wonder and style, is what fires her creative process. You can find her with a smile on her face 24/7 with a camera in hand. Having a go-getter and entrepreneurial mindset, Shiloh started her photography and blogging side hustle a little over a year ago. Lover of all things colorful, retro and boho. If she isn’t capturing her latest content or watching Greys Anatomy with her husband and pup, you can find her planning for their next trip on Pinterest.


The Standards breathtaking lobby is the perfect first impression piece for all of your wedding/event guests.
