When did you establish your business? 2005

What sets you apart from your competition? I have a very fun approach towards wedding planning, I keep it real and remind the couple of why they are planning this extraordinary event. My calm and focused demeanor make it easy to work with me and getting things checked off the to do list.

Where do you find inspiration? I love working with people. I get all my creativity from my clients but of course, enjoy hours on Pinterest, Etsy, Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel as well!

Do you regularly blog? Yes, I try to. Updates can be found here.

Are you on social media? Yes, follow me on Facebook here, Twitter here, Pinterest here and Google+ here.

What’s your favorite comment/compliment that one of your clients has given you? “You are so calm”.. I don’t show stress, my head works 24/7 to stay on track, I multi-task… but to the bride and groom, I have all eyes on them at all times.

What is your favorite fun thing to do locally? Wine Tasting

Do you have secret vice or indulgence? What is it? M&M’s.. pretzel or coconut

Do you have any hidden talents? I love the outdoors, camping, hiking, crossfit, enjoying company with a glass of champagne and strawberries.

If you weren’t in the business that you are in now, what other business/profession would you have liked to have done? I’m right where I’m supposed to be, but interior design is on the top of my list to do one day.

If you were to plan your own wedding, or re-do your wedding, what element(s) would be most important to you? I would love to invite all friends and family to a destination wedding and spend at least 3 days together, all expenses covered.

What advice would you can give to brides and grooms getting married today? Focus on what’s important to you and don’t forget to hire a wedding planner.
