Owner & Lead Planner
I've always been the planner of the group. I want to know where we're going, how we're getting there and I'll always be 15 minutes early. My biggest inspiration for Bri By Design has been my jump-in attitude when helping others plan life events and my love for weddings, design & pretty things.
You'll always find a few tears in my eyes from the moment the ceremony music begins to the final "I am honored to announce for the first time..." I'm an achiever and futuristic thinker, which lends its hands in making each event special and 100% stress-free for the guests of honor! With almost 8 years of event planning experience and a Masters degree in marketing and business, I can bring a unique perspective to your event and make sure all the little details are organized & taken care of!
I keep myself happy with trips to the beach, weekly yoga practice, & cuddling with my puppers. Always thinking of the next place to go, my recent search browser history includes Boujie airbnbs in Paris, how to make comfort food healthy, and where to buy affordable tulle skirts.
My dream wedding to coordinate is a Tuscan inspired wedding on a rooftop terrace overlooking hills of grapevines, complete with goats, red wine fresh from the barrels, and an olive oil tasting during cocktail hour.
My Biggest Advice for Couples Planning
Everyone has an opinion and it's important to make them feel valued, but stick to what you believe is important! If you're not sure what you want, take inventory, collect your thoughts and then get talking to a wedding professional to help you rationalize, budget, and bring your wedding to life! This is your day, you can do what you want with it!
