MEET THE DESIGNER
Since as far back as I can remember, I’ve been in love with entertaining and the idea of celebrating each occasion as beautifully as it deserves. With passion, creativity, heart and style. With a soft spot for mixing and matching multiple design elements to create an eclectic, unique look and feel, I want to get to know all the things that make you weak in the knees!
I’ve spent close to decade perfecting my craft with experience in nearly every facet of the event industry. I first began planning at a collegiate level and just 2 years later, found a home with popular MN based record company, Rhymesayers Entertainment. There I spent 2 more years as a lead planner, organizing large scale concerts, festivals and block parties. After earning degrees in both business and entrepreneurship from a private university, I became both travel agent and wedding planner certified. With dreams of my own full service event planning company in sight, I went on to study corporate meeting planning and special events in the event capital of the world, Las Vegas. Today our experience ranges from weddings, marriage proposals, editorial styling, fashion shows, corporate conferences, private parties, and so much more!
We’ve been very fortunate to be recognized both locally and nationally for our events and designs that have taken place around the US.

ON A PERSONAL NOTE .♥.
Are you married? : (My most frequently asked question) - I’m not yet married. I have the love of an amazing man who spoils me silly with his kind and generous heart. Our life is filled with laughter, mini serenades and an abundance of cooking shows.
What are your favorite flowers to have around the house? : White roses, peonies, and ranunculus. I love the clean and elegant look of white flowers anytime of the year.
Name something included in your perfect Saturday if you're not working an event? : Brunch. An entire table of chicken & waffle orders has been known to occur within my circle.
What is your favorite colour? Salmon pink and sparkle.
Do you have any guilty pleasures? Cookie dough, binge watching episodes of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" and designer shoes.
Who are your favorite bridal dress designers? Reem Acra, Theia, Hayley Paige, Julie Vino, and Zuhair Murad.
Where would you like the next stamp in your passport to be from? Spain. The art, romance, cuisine, music, architecture.. talk about a feast for the senses! We have 6 destination weddings this winter so there will be a few other special stamps before then but I would love to make plans to visit southern Europe in the future.
What can be found in your iTunes library? Everything for Jock Jams hits to Steve Miller Band. I love music. I've always had a big appreciation for artists, listening to a wide range of musical genres most of my life. If I had to choose just one I would say that I gravitate toward R&B the most.
Do you have a favorite holiday or time of the year? I have too much love for the changing seasons and all the special things that come with them to ever choose just one. However, my favorite holiday is the 4th of July!
