It's all in the details!

A wedding is an exquisite and meaningful event, no matter how large or small, and it's the little details that leave a lasting impression. A bride and groom, and their families, will remember this day for the rest of their lives. Every couple wants their wedding to be an expression of their style and taste, and to be thoroughly enjoyed by all of their guests. In order to take pleasure in a flawless wedding, one must spend numerous days planning, researching, and coordinating the details that will make it a memorable and successful event.

As an experienced and certified wedding planner, I help you design the wedding of your dreams! Using my creativity and knowledge base, I guide you through the wedding planning process as much or as little as you desire. I pay attention to those little details that will pull everything together. Nothing is overlooked, and no task is too small or too large.

I have been planning events for eight years. My experience as an event coordinator for a Public Relations society in college, followed by four years as a professional meeting planner have prepared me with a vast knowledge of the event and hotel industries. I specialize in contracting with hotels and vendors, as well as timelines, logistics, and cost saving decor ideas. I am very artistic and love hands-on, DIY projects. I have coordinated many weddings, including my own, and have earned my certification as an International Wedding Planning Professional (IWPP). I also have experience working as a wedding dress salesperson and makeup artist, and would love to assist in these areas, if needed.

Wedding planning is my passion! I would be honored to help coordinate the many details of your special day! Please contact me so we can discuss how I am able to contribute to your dream wedding!


I provide both Full-Service and Day-of wedding planning services. I also offer an hourly rate if you would like help on specific tasks, but do not require the Full-Service package. My rates are very affordable for a budget-conscious bride and groom.

Please call or email me anytime to inquire about my services. I will be happy to speak with you in detail and hold a complimentary initial consultation.
