As long as I can remember, I have been planning parties. It started when I was in grade school (sorry Mom and Dad) and has been part of my life ever since. I enjoyed planning any and all events for my friends and family but as I got older I enjoyed most of all, planning weddings.
I think it is the excitement in the air that draws me in. I love hearing the stories people share with me about how they met, their visions for their Wedding Day and even the worries leading up to it because I know I can help ease their minds. I look at every wedding as an opportunity to bring happiness to the people I am working with. Whether it be the couple, their friends, family or the vendors that they have chosen, I have the chance to help create the day they all have dreamed of. I feel so fortunate to be part of a new chapter of their love story and am grateful everyday for the opportunity to do something I personally love.
I have always loved planning! It didn’t really matter what it was, I was just happy to be involved... and if I could include a theme, it was even better! I was introduced to Wedding Planning in college. I was a Communications Major and I was required to take a Public Relations and Marketing class. In that class I was offered an internship from a Wedding Coordinator and realized almost immediately that I wanted to change majors to Event Planning. I have done countless events solo but have been looking for the right company to partner with. When I met Brooke Voris and she shared her vision with me, I felt an instant bond. She and I have the same philosophy on how things should be done and the way people should be treated. I knew that I wanted to be part of her team and she felt the same way about me. I enjoy every aspect of the planning process, even the work that goes unnoticed by most. When something unexpected happens and I am able to fix it before the couple is aware, I know I made someone’s day better by being there . My focus is to assure they have the best day ever and get everything they want. When the wedding is over and they can’t stop smiling, I couldn’t be happier because I know I had a part in it.
