Stephanie Thendres


Born and raised in Indonesia, Stephanie moved to Australia at 18 years old to pursue her career in fashion.


While studying Fashion Marketing at Raffles College in Sydney, she was introduced to the bridal and beauty industries. Intrigued, she signed up for a bridal hair and makeup course during summer break, which quickly led to obtaining her professional certification.


After graduating from college, Stephanie began to build her professional experience, working for a clothing company full-time and accepting limited bridal clients on weekends. 


Deciding to further her studies, she went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Communication and Media Technologies from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. With her media studies fueling her creative mindset, she successfully used social media content to showcase her artwork across multiple platforms.

Stephanie has lived in several countries, including Indonesia, Australia, and the United States. Through her travels, she has developed a deepened understanding and appreciation for the beauty of diversity that she hopes to share through her work.


In 2020, she finally decided to settle and reunited with her family in Los Angeles. Equipped with her educational background and extensive experience, she formed BRIDESNEST at 25 years old and, two years later, founded her second company, BROWSNEST.


Stephanie’s ultimate goal is to deliver high-quality services for her clients by continuing to expand her knowledge and improve her skills.
