Years in wedding industry: Since September 2006

Personal fun fact:

On my 21st birthday I was mistaken for  Kathleen Turner in a very dimly lit  Springfield restaurant.  I’m still not sure if that was a compliment – she is 15 years older than me

Why I love what I do!

I love what I do because I like helping couples find out what is really important to them on their wedding day & being a part of making that happen!
