The Perfect Small Wedding

Wedding Obsessed, Planning Superstar!
When I'm not making beautiful weddings happen at Camellia Palms, I can be found out on my paddleboard or traveling the world. Also, I'll never say no to the beach or a good cup of coffee.
Mover & Shaker Extraordinaire!
I love making every part of our guests' experience perfect! My secret power is finding misplaced keys & phones. I fill my spare time with making Camellia Palms' gardens beautiful, my family & quilting.
The design guru that always has a plan!
When I'm not working with brides on their wedding decor or creating custom wedding invitations in my print shop, Dilly Dally Paper Co., I can be found sitting in front of my easel, watching the newest action movie, or creating in my wood shop. When it comes to me, I love locally-brewed beer and sushi.
