"Event planning, especially wedding planning, is a very personal experience. My clients and I work closely together to design an event that is perfectly suited to them, and their budget. I'm skilled at coming up with creative solutions and finding passionate staff to ensure the event runs smoothly.
I am continuously amazed and inspired by the variety with which couples express their commitment. Together, we toss out old traditions, make up new ones, and create an experience that perfectly captures their unique personalities. I take great pride and delight in making sure that the bride and groom enjoy their day while I manage the details behind the scenes.
Whenever a couple asks me whether or not something is “normal” for a wedding, I encourage them forget about what everybody else is doing and focus on what is important to them. Let’s make a new normal. Brightly colored linens? Awesome! Have a llama walk down the aisle? Let’s make it happen! A three-day campout? So fun! (All of these and more have happened, by the way)
My journey to wedding planning began in New York City at a boutique graphic design firm when I volunteered to plan the annual holiday party one year. I loved every minute of it—planning the menu, coordinating the set-up, managing the staff. I was hooked! After the party was over, I returned to my design job, but the seed for an alternative career was planted. A few years (and a move to San Francisco) later, I pursued my interests through many facets of the event industry before focusing on a career in weddings.
When I’m not preparing for a wedding, I’m usually in the kitchen cooking up something delicious. Sometimes the cookies go onto a cute plate for fun photography and food styling, and sometimes they go straight into hungry mouths—or both!
I would love to chat about every detail of your plans to see if I would be the right fit to make your wedding day as amazing as you dreamed!"
