Owner & Lead Planner

For as long as I can remember, I've always been planning something! I threw the birthday parties for my friends, I planned the vacation itineraries for my family, and even now, I'm planning and designing what our first home will be and the dream home after that (complete with design board). I think of every wedding as a fairytale dream, and I've been called a Fairy Godmother by past clients - bringing their dreams to life in a magical way, completely stress-free!  

Maryland native, east coast traveler, and now North Carolina settler, I have a passion for traveling, learning and growing. With a BA in psychology, and an MBA in Marketing, I like to say that I have the knowledge to say what is needed but the wisdom to know when that is. INFJ at heart, Enneagram 1w2, I'm either quiet and observing or taking charge of any situation - calm on the outside controlled chaos on the inside. My unique background lets me connect and empathize with a lot of people and understand the thought processes that help get my couples to their fairytale wedding day.

Bri was so quick to jump in and help with set up, and really she's an expert. She made our wedding Pinterest-worthy, and was an absolute doll to hang out with all day.
