"the Fairy Godmother of weddings..."

Let me count the ways…
Love is not limited by time or space or age. It is the highest expression of human emotion.

Welcome to Magical Inspirations. As a little girl, I always wanted to be a princess who would marry her prince. I have been happily married for five years, and now, I want to help you with your dream wedding come true. I am a lover of old history, ruins, and stories of knights saving the damsels. This is where my inspiration for planning comes from. If you love the look of medieval times, of Lancelot and Guinevere or of Cinderella and Prince Charming, then look no further. I am here to help your dream come true and create the most memorable day for you and your loved one.

I have an Associate’s degree in British Literature, who doesn’t love a little Shakespeare or Elizabeth Barrett Browning as shown above? I have a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Montana. I graduated in 2017, and have felt unfulfilled ever since. I came across a school that would teach me the fundamentals of event and wedding planning, and was automatically peaked with interest. I have been attending the QC Event and Wedding Planning school since June 2018, and I have not regretting it. My knowledge in planning has exploded in vast amounts, bringing joy to me. I have always had a knack for planning, details especially, and when I found the courses to allow me to do this, I only want more. I love planning. I have been planning events for myself and my family since I was sixteen years of age. Now, ten years later, I am helping others create memories that will last them a lifetime.


I offer many types of services that will fit anyone’s need.
Consultations: these are where we sit down together face-to-face or via video chat if distance separates us. We discuss the major elements of planning a wedding. I have personalized folders that contain helpful insight into what to expect with a wedding coming up. Included are some helpful bonus tools to keep things organized. Consultations are a fee of $100 nonrefundable.
Day-of-Service: apply to parties, activities, or ceremonies on the day they are held. I help problem solve, give direction based on your wants and needs, and lend a helping hand whenever needed. Pricing upon request.
Half-Time Services: are when I help the couple towards the end of their planning timeline. This entails vendors are paid, setup is complete for ceremony and reception areas. Like, day-of-services, I give direction, lend a hand, and help the bigger picture come together so the couple may relax during this joyful time. This starts typically the week prior to the wedding date, to the reception. Pricing upon request.
Complete Wedding Services: I plan and coordinate all details pertaining to the wedding couple. This includes ceremony, reception, and any pre wedding events such as showers and/or dinners. I will also be tasks to post-wedding activities as well such as honeymoon plans, and thank you notes. Pricing upon request.
