How did your business journey begin?
I was planning corporate events for a busy movie marketing company and loved every minute of it. But I couldn’t quite shake that there was something off about it that I wasn’t quite connecting to. Then I started helping Kaci on weddings and quickly realized it was the human connection that I was missing in the corporate world.
When two people get married, the whole focus of the day is the love they have for each other and the love their guests have for each of them. There’s a very real vibe on a wedding day that I live for!
What do you value?
I value experience over expense. I would prefer my clients guests come away with that “wow that was the best wedding ever” feeling rather than “wow, I wonder how much they spent on that wedding.” Whether your budget is 25k or 250k I want to make sure your wedding day is the best day ever.
What do you want your Ideal Client to know?
I want you to know that I’m on your team! I’m your go-to for anything wedding related and I WANT to help you. I also can’t know what you don’t tell me. There’s no such thing as over-sharing!
What sets you apart?
I hear all the time that I’m so nice, but really I think it’s just my ability to not be a jerk when things aren’t as they should be. I don’t think you have to be mean to get what you want out of a situation. So the napkins are folded wrong… it’s a fixable mistake and probably an honest one. Don’t have to be mean to the person that did it… Just ask them nicely to fix it!
Where are you from?
Medina, NY (which is about 45 minutes from Buffalo!)
01. The must-haves in my purse are… Burts Bees lip balm and a lint roller. (too much animal hair!)
02. Design element I never tire of… Ribbons. Something about those that I can’t get enough of. I’d have curtains made of ribbons if it weren’t for the cats!
03. My favorite part of a wedding is… The first look. OR if no first look, the walk down the aisle. I usually miss it because of coordinator craziness. But when I do catch a glimpse I tear up every time.
Here you’ll find a collection of our favorite venues and clients we’ve had the pleasure of working with. You’ll see some of the same venue but very different syles and looks... that’s because every wedding is different and we want to help you stand out from the crowd!
