THE HEART

behind the experiences

I built my wedding & event planning business from the passion I’ve developed from creating memorable experiences. You see – I have been planning galas, weddings, retirement parties and endless events for non-profit organizations for YEARS. Family gatherings? I’m always the de facto planner – and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Friends and family come to me because I’m reliable, organized, (and by trade – an Engineer and career long Project Manager) , I’m a natural problem solver.

When it was my turn to get married, you guessed it – I was THAT bride that was all in on the planning. Not only the pretty stuff (but don’t get it twisted, ambiance is eeeeverything!) – I was knee deep managing expenses, putting together our timeline and reviewing all the contracts!  Because I am that person that understands that planning the logistics is what makes all the difference in having the event day run smoothly

I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I began capturing images on film at the age of 22 when I discovered my dad’s old Pentax in the attic. The limited amount of images on a roll of film forced me to put my camera phone down and really observe the beauty in the world, and the people around me. 

Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. 

Even with it’s ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can’t wait to create images to show that!

I believe in the power of intimate moments and unexpected details. From a bride taking a moment to breathe before she walks down the aisle to an arrangement made from flowers native to a couple’s hometown—as a wedding designer, I know it’s so often the smallest things that make the biggest impact. 

Whether I’m providing a one-time design consultation or offering tip-to-tail planning for an entire wedding weekend, I always strive to bring a level of trust, expertise, and comfort to the process. Because, above all, I believe you should feel confident, relaxed, and present on your wedding-day. 

My decade-long tenure in the hospitality industry, experience in the marketing & communications world, and educational background in business administration allow me to take a comprehensive approach to event planning and production. From logistics to aesthetics to guest-experience, I work to ensure no stone is left unturned as I guide you through a streamlined, stress-free planning journey.

Simplicity is the keynote of all true ELEGANCE

THE HEART

behind the photos

The first time my dad saw my mom, he was so sure she was the one, he walked straight up to her and gave her a kiss. Was it forward? Yes. But it worked. It’s been 32 years and they’re still going strong.

My parents have always been a beautiful example of love, intimacy and marriage. And when my mom got sick, it wasn’t home decor or baked goods that my dad brought to the hospital, it was photos. Photos remind us of the strength, courage and hope that reside in all of us the way few other things can.
