What do you enjoy most about planning events/weddings?
I love seeing the look of joy on my clients face as they realize that all of their dreams have unfolded and become everything they imagined.
What makes your company and/or services Special?
We are not a “Fly by Night Company”. I have been in the wedding/event industry for 16+ years and have sharpened my skills by seeking formal training. Many planners today have no formal training, they simply hosted a gathering at home that went well and suddenly jumped into planning. Throughout these years we have been able to foster and nurture various relationships with other vendors, allowing us special discounts which we pass on to our clients.
What are your future goals?
Next year I plan to obtain certification in event décor & design. While I can usually transform concept into reality with ease, I’d like to learn the ins & outs of design.
What 3 words would you use to describe you?
