Treated us like family

Grooms, don't often work directly with wedding coordinators as much as brides, but I can say with a smile that Essence of Elegance was as helpful and supportive to this groom as any bride could expect!

I have worked in several roles for events with Essence of Elegance. If forced to choose, it would be the behind the scenes logistics on wedding day and the magic of watching it all come together that are my absolute favorite. Seeing it all come together gives me great joy. In planning and life, I absolutely love forming connections with others.

Born in Bermuda but raised by my Grandmother in Bequia (part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines) for 3 years. I graduated from Mount Saint Vincent University with a Bachelors in Business Administration. After graduation, I worked in the hotel industry for almost 5 years in the reservations dept. Working in that role lead me to love helping with events. Planning an event from start to finish gives me a sense of gratification when I see the clients enjoying themselves.
