Making Dreams Come True
I am lucky to say that every day I get to do what I love to do. Pinch me, please! I literally help couples like yourselves to plan the happiest day of their lives, dream of ways to put their special touches on their day and give them the best gift of all and that is the opportunity to be a VIP guest at their own dream wedding!
My goal as your planner is to get to know you as a couple, understand your wedding dreams, desires and challenges for your wedding, and help you overcome any obstacles to create memorable memories for the rest of your life. I am your personal planner and not attached to a venue or vendor. Which allows me to help you plan a wedding that is unique to the two of you, not a cookie cutter wedding that is convenient to the venue or vendor.
I specialize in outdoor weddings at venues or private estates, with 100-200 guests where we get to start with a blank canvas and envision how your wedding will flow from start to finish. I understand all the organization, costs/needs, timing and challenges that come with an outdoor venue and with my expertise and experience I am confident that with us by your side we can beautifully orchestrate your dream wedding.
At the end of the day, the smile and enjoyment from my couples on their wedding day and the friendships that I make along the way is like the icing on the wedding cake and one of the many reasons why I love what I do!
Owner / Wedding Planner
Turning a Vision into Reality
I love planning weddings and events because there are no two events that are alike. When I plan with my couples, I am always thinking how can we create a wedding experience that is unique to the two of you and your love for one another. I love thinking outside the box and coming up with new fresh ideas or twists on an original idea. I say there are NO RULES at weddings/events. So as we collaborate thru the planning process I will be there to help you visualize the experience you are wanting for your guests and help you come up with solutions to turn that vision into a reality.
My husband, Joel & I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary, July 2021. We were high school sweathearts and dated for 7 years before we married. I did not have a wedding planner at my wedding (thinking I could do it all myself ) and since that day, I have vowed that I will never let that happened to another couple again... the most organized brides are the ones that are the most deserving of a wedding planner by their side on their wedding day- It's now your turn to relax and enjoy your day while we take care of the rest!
A Perfectionist on Every Detail
I understand that you are planning your wedding for the first time, and that you are not an expert and really you just don't know what you don't know! That is why you hire me, an independent expert wedding planner that is looking out for you! With thousands of hours of planning weddings and events I am a professional perfectionist when it comes to every detail large and small. I know all the questions to ask and all the little details, like who is bringing the ice or bottle openers, what time should your vendors arrive on wedding day, who will make sure the candles are lit at the reception, how will we get down the aisle, who will que the music, did we even sign the marriage certificate? ...and the list goes on and on. My Job is to ask the questions and worry about all the details, so you don't have to!
I like to build furniture and homemade decor in my spare time. I enjoy being creative and thinking outside the box when it comes to finding solutions for anything and everything.
