I am madly in love with my husband Denver and our life together. We are surrounded by incredibly supportive family and friends, and we are forever grateful for that. I am passionate about creating, and I have a serious kick for health and fitness. The early morning is my favorite time of the day and I will always choose sweet over sour. Always.
I have always been deeply involved in the intricacies of life and cannot seem to get enough of the joy that comes from a fuller wedding day and or special event. After planning my own wedding I knew that this was an industry that would allow me to help others experience that kind of joy, and I cannot think of a better way to spend my days then to do just that.
I received my BA in Psychology, while simultaneously being the event coordinator for my university in Orange County, California. After falling in love with planning university events, I shifted my Psychology degree so that my emphasis was geared on the Industrial Organizational (IO) spectrum. Studying IO taught me the importance of creating a room to feel a specific way depending on what you hope to accomplish- which is why I love planning weddings. Each bride has a unique desire to feel a certain way on her special day as well as create an atmosphere for her guests to feel a certain way. I simply love having the opportunity to make that desire a reality.
My absolute favorite part of any event is the finished product. The look on a clients face when they see their venue for the first time and all of the pieces coming into place is unbeatable. I love seeing eyes light up as each layer of the event unfolds, and the intricate detail of months of planning come to life.
I love my hubby Aaron and my daughter Ruby more then words can explain and my yorkie Maxton is a close third, I have a passion for design and DIY projects that cannot be controlled. Cooking is one of my biggest outlets and my table is always open to friends. I have a huge family that I am beyond grateful for, and friends that I hold close to my heart.
I fell in love with weddings while planning my own wedding, I was finishing my BA in interior design when I realized I would not be able to stop. It mixed my passion for design and people into a career that most only dream about.
After my realization that I was was going to be in the wedding and event planning world no matter what, I contacted another coordinator who had been my Day-of Coordinator and asked if she would train me in the world of Seattle wedding planning. I spent a year as her assistant learning as much as I could and then the next year as an associate planner. I am very grateful for the unique one-on-one training I received, and I hope that one day I can do the same for someone that falls in love with this career as much as I have.
My BA in Interior Design gives me a great perspective on how a room should be laid out and unique ways to make use of a venue. I try to see every venue as a blank canvas that needs to be made into art.
I love the details, the simple details that make a wedding or event unique to the client. I believe that the most important thing is that no one should be able to take your place on your wedding day. My goal with every couple is to break the mold a little bit and do something that only they would do or want. I will be the first to admit that it is not always easy but when we get there the results are worth it!
