I am so excited to meet you and hear more about you and your love story! But since you're here, let me take a second to tell you a little bit about me and let you in on why I love what I do!
I have had a lifelong love affair with all things weddings. The fact that I have been a Martha Stewart Weddings and Brides Magazine subscriber since I was about 17, should have been a clue that this is what I would find myself doing in life! I can even remember sitting on my couch eating pancakes and watching wedding shows on TV well before I was old enough to drive.
Planning and design is part of who I am! Every time I walk into a space, I design a wedding. I picture where the ceremony is, and then come up with a killer room layout. (It's my hidden talent!) I think in tablescapes and floor plans. And seeing all of that hard work come together on the big day is the most satisfying feeling for me!
I am so grateful that get to do what I love with some amazing vendor friends and the most incredible brides! I can't wait to meet you and hear all about you, your fiancé, and your wedding plans. Feel free to check out some of my past events on my portfolio page, or head over to my contact page so we can set up a time to chat.
My arms are double jointed which means if I hold my hands I can literally wind my arms around my entire body without letting go. That being said, I’m getting old and stiff, so I have to stretch (for like an hour) first!
I love brownie mix--like the powder. I used to steal it out of my pantry when I was little and hide it under my bed so I could eat it without being yelled at. As an adult my tastebuds have become a little more refined. Now I stick to Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix.
I’m a nerd. In grad school I got a 4.0 overall in my masters program--and no, I had no life for two years.
My favorite place to be is on the back of a horse. I have been riding for over 25 years and would be lost without horses in my life, it is food for my soul.
Speaking of animals, I love all furry creatures. I would probably have a zoo if I didn’t have a husband to say no. When I am on vacation and away from my babies I make friends with any animal within petting distance.
I’m going to go about animals again--because as you can tell they are an enormous part of my life. I have 2 cats and 2 dogs, and they each have at least 5 names. My dogs given names are Monkey and Duckie. (I have a penchant for naming my animals after different animals.)
Watching people dance is one of my favorite things--along with watching people fall, get scared, or propose which are also high on the list. It never gets old. When it’s boys dancing, it’s even better. I can’t explain it, but it always puts a smile on my face.
I am huge self-help, positive thinking, yoga loving nut. I enjoy hitting the pause button and taking a time out to be grateful for everything that I have. I fully believe everyone should spend time everyday doing something for themselves.
I love binge watching TV shows and literally could stay in my house for days on end watching an entire series. #introvert
I love meeting people and learning about what makes them tick, what they love, who they love, and what’s important to them which is probably why I enjoy being a part of my brides life in this capacity.
