Getting to know me:
I'm a sporty gal who loves the Cardinals and secretly the Chicago Cubs (World Series 2016 woohoo!), but I also am a huge fan of the St. Louis Blues! I love traveling when I can. In fact, I can't go anywhere without staying with someone in my family. And when I have "me" time, I'm on the tennis court.
It's a never ending delight to create and keep things "fresh." I love designing and staging events. I choose from my private stock, one of a kind vintage pieces, modern pieces, designer fabrics and place settings for a special look that defines your "couple" brand. It's about creating an event that represents your style!
I volunteer in the community using my talents helping not for profits--galas and socials. This year I'm volunteering with the Women's Safe House Gala. and St Louis Children's Hospital Table Tops Event
How did I get started event planning?
First of all, my passion is to help Brides have a worry free and happy wedding day, as my own wedding was memorable for many great storytelling reasons....
My easy going manner and patience (my background is in teaching Kindergarten) provides a calming planning environment. I especially enjoy the excitement of planning sophisticated weddings or vow renewal weddings with all the trimmings and professional styling.
Lastly, I was encouraged for years by my volunteers, co-workers and other wedding planner professionals to be a wedding planner... with that I decided to enter the field. I'm so glad that I listened to them.
I just love it!
