    Incredible experience from start to finish

    Cherish and the rest of the team were absolutely incredible from start to finish planning our wedding! We had rather non-traditional plans and she was able to coordinate with the vendors and set up exactly what we wanted. Her communication was top notch and took a huge weight off our shoulders for our big day

    I cannot recommend her enough!

    Cherish made our day incredible for everyone!!

    Cherish was incredibly amazing through and through. She always made time for us to make sure things were taken care of. Never once during our big day did we have to think about whether something was good to go or even consider having to make any friends or family help out. Cherish took our mood boards, set things up beautifully and everything was seamless, ahead of schedule and made our day unforgettable and stress free.

My love of weddings and event planning has followed me for as long as I can remember, and I’ve always carried it over into any and all aspects of the work that I’ve done throughout the years. My experience ranges from onsite charity & event planning at my Alma mater Howard University, working as a Food & Beverage Director for a boutique hotel & restaurant brand, working for one of the top catering companies in the Washington D.C Metro area then becoming the Catering Director for one of Portland's premiere social clubs. All of these experiences have given me the opportunity to truly engage with my clients and give them key insight, logistical and planning support that goes well beyond just your standard wedding planning and event services.

Through it out all, I've had the opportunity to plan & design weddings, galas, meetings and more for some of the country’s most noted community leaders, socialites, and influencers.

As a wedding and events planner & designer, I’ve been able to zero in on my passion for helping clients and couples create truly memorable experiences that last well beyond their day. There is nothing more satisfying to me than knowing my services made my clients’ day.

Outside of spending time with my husband and life partner, Gregory, and our three fur babies Casper Gigi & Cookie, I devote majority of my time learning more about industry trends, catching up with friends & family and getting involved in my community.

I look forward to learning more about YOU and bringing your vision for your next event to life.

“You know that ‘feeling’ when you first meet someone, and it all just clicks? Or when you walk into a room full of people and suddenly you feel so relaxed? That is what I want you to feel as my client.”
