For the past 14+ years, I have worked and traveled my way across the United States and abroad – I’m a big “you only live once” kind of person and take every opportunity I can to travel and gain new experiences. I landed my first official job in the events industry back in 2003 assisting with weddings and large-scale festivals for an oceanside venue in Newport, Rhode Island and from there I continued on my path in events management, from coordinating a national regatta series for Sailing World Magazine to functions for a private school in Sydney, Australia, to strategically-placed marketing events of all kinds across the United States for a pharmaceutical agency. Through all of my work and travels, though, I felt like something was missing and realized it was the creativity and personalization that went into the weddings that I started out with in the very beginning. I went on to open my company (initially called lovely little details) in 2009 and have not stopped working since then in order to build the reputable and seasoned wedding planning company that it has become today. An eternal optimist at heart, I’ve always been a “glass half full” type of gal and take this view into every event – I really and truly love my job and will never stop feeling thankful for each client who trusts me to join them on their journey to “I do”.

Having grown up working at my family’s hardware store, customer service (along with a strong work ethic) has always been a high priority for me. This upbringing also instilled an appreciation for the small-business approach as I watched many of my family members manage their own businesses while maintaining a healthy work/life balance, something I learned to be a key ingredient to a happy life. As a small business owner, I take great pride in being able to give my clients an amazing (and fun) wedding planning experience from start to finish, an “experience” that I have tailored through the years to meet the needs of my busy clients. My boutique approach is not meant for mass event production, and instead I limit the number of celebrations I take on per year to a maximum of four. By doing this, it means that when you book with my company, you book with me as your main contact, not a secondary coordinator. As a full-service planner and designer, I will literally work with you through the entire planning process from the moment you say “yes!” to the very last sparkler exit, coordinating your logistics and design hand in hand from start to finish.
I am so honored to be included in Martha Stewart Weddings’ elite list of top wedding planners (literally – I almost fell out of my chair when I received the news) and am also proud to also have my work published in Martha Stewart Weddings along with Town & Country, Vogue, Brides, The Knot, Southern Weddings, Style Me Pretty and several other print and online publications. All accolades aside, though, I absolutely and truly believe that life is too short not to chase your dreams, inspiration can be found everywhere if you truly take a moment to look around and soak it all in, and true happiness is enjoyed most when shared with others. Weddings are my favorite form of celebration and I feel so fortunate to be able to share this happiness with my clients during such a monumental part of their lives.
