In her own words...
Hi there! I’m a Pennsylvania native that found my way to Virginia through the welcoming doors of James Madison University (Go Duuuukes!). With my degree in media arts and design, I worked in the UX (user experience) field for several years designing websites and applications. While at JMU, I worked for the office of admissions and university program board where I was able to hone my skills in design, hospitality, and event management. Marrying my passions for design and planning special events, I found my calling in the wedding industry. I love that wedding design truly exists beyond a computer screen and every client brings new inspiration to the table.
On event day, my goal is to make your experience as stress free and fun as possible! I can often be found passing out water bottles to the bridal party or chatting with a nervous flower girl before the ceremony. Having the ability to make others feel good on one of the most memorable days of their lives is incredibly fulfilling. My favorite moments at weddings are seeing guests notice the couple's custom details; whether that's surprise late night snacks, beautifully designed welcome bags, or a unique vow exchange.
My grandmother, Carrie Underwood, Randall Pearson (This is Us- Seasons 1 & 2) and my college design professors.
