Thanks for visiting me here at GLOW. So glad you found your way here!

Whether you are looking for coordination, full support, or something in between, I'll guide you thru all of the little (and big!) details you didn’t know to think of.

I inherited my entrepreneurial spirit from my Grandmother, who was a cruise event organizer and pioneer for women’s fitness programs. My affinity for lists and planning evolved from writing out minute-by-minute “daily plans” with my friend on the elementary school bus. As a rare organized lefty, I am both hardwired for creativity and blessed with detail orientation. I have a distinctive sense of style and a love for all things visually beautiful.
I graduated with a Marketing degree from The University of Maryland’s leading Robert H. Smith School of Business. Following a stint in Real Estate, GLOW Weddings and Events was founded in 2009 after I was demoted as a Bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding and instead, coordinated the whole thing. Most recently, I expanded my repertoire to include a WSET Level 1 Award in Wines.
Over the last 14 years, my business and family have grown in tandem. I have 3 active boys whose names all begin with L, which means I can never blurt out the right one! Search up “soccer mom,” there you’ll find my picture. No but seriously, since I will never be a MOB, I often find myself swooning over the Mother-Son Dance.
To sustain in this industry you have to love it, and I can 100% say that “I do” (no pun intended). I am never more in my element than when running around like a crazy person so that it all comes together on time and as you envisioned. Past clients consistently praise my ability to instill calm, despite the emotionally charged environment of your most momentous occasion. I consider it an absolute honor to play such an integral role in your day’s success.
I have lots of stories to tell! Stay tuned, I may just write a book…

I highly recommend Glow Weddings for your wedding. Glow has done several weddings at Woodend for many years, so they know the venue very well and will make the best use of the space, ensuring that your special day is everything you hope it will be. They are professional, creative, knowledgeable and such a joy to work with. I also appreciate that Glow understands all guidelines set for events, and instead of putting couples against venues for things that may not be allowed such as candles on the floor or grounds, they use their knowledge and creativity to find solutions to make your wish come true without compromising the safety of everyone and the venue.
Great team to work with on a wedding day. They kept us well informed of each event and provided an amazing timeline for the day. Can't wait until the next time we have the privilege to work with such a talented team!
