Owner & Creative Director

For 20 years I have studied, lived, and breathed all things design. With a background in home fashion and textile design, my love for color, pattern, and texture is evident in the events and designs that the team and I create. Born and raised in the South, currently residing in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and inspired by all the travels in between, I enjoy mixing all styles and aesthetics to uniquely and beautifully create your perfect day. As a wedding planner I find great joy in helping clients plan their special day. My goal is to achieve the look and feel that you have been dreaming of and to help you “put it all together”. Your day is meant to be magical and that is how it will be!

Being in this industry is truly part of who I am. Some of my most favorite things are to-do lists {and checking them off!}, trend research, unique design, and all things pretty. As a wedding planner and event designer I am able to blend my passions of design, planning, and organization to create your memorable event.

This amazing team and I are here to stand by your side and help you through all the details. Whether you’re looking for some day of emotional support {and handling of all the day of logistics!}, someone to hold your hand all the way through the process, or something somewhere in the middle, we are here for ya!
