My very favorite events to plan? Weddings. There’s nothing like seeing a couple on their big day and they’re just happy. Not stressed, not concerned, just full of the joy that is their day. It’s the very best gift I can give them, and I never get tired of giving it.  Weddings should be about fun and love and celebration and meaning. They shouldn’t be about spreadsheets and timelines and to-do lists. That’s what I’m here for and it’s what I absolutely love to do.
