About the Owner

I started working in the local wedding industry in 2009 when I officiated my first wedding ceremony. I later started my company in 2012 as a wedding officiant, and over time expanded my services to include planning, rentals, and décor. I now hold the title of Master Certified Wedding Planner through The Certified Wedding Planner Society, Certified Timeline Genius, and I've received the WeddingWire Couples Choice Award for 10 years in a row.

Your needs, wishes, and wedding dreams are my highest priorities. My approach to your big day is one where I listen very carefully to your vision while always being on time, helping you stay organized, and keeping track of every detail.

I have spent years in this industry, which means I will be able to help you navigate through all of the decisions you and your fiancé will have to make. In my time as a planner, I have made hundreds of contacts with local wedding vendors in order to offer my clients access to some of the most experienced and well-respected professionals in the industry. I look forward to helping you turn your wedding vision into a reality.
