When I’m not designing or planning you can find me following the patches of sunlight around my house with my book while my daughters play. My family and I love to ramble through the woods on weekends when we don’t have an event.
In addition to planning the traditional movements of your modern-day wedding, bridal shower, and baby shower, I have been involved in every aspect of designing and orchestrating an event. I believe guests should feel like they are moved from beautiful moment to beautiful moment without ever seeing the tremendous work that goes in behind the scenes.
