Questions and Answers

What 3 words describe your work?

Unique. Detailed. Distinct.

What are the common misconceptions about your services?

Many people think that coordinators are not needed, and just think of them as an added expense. A coordinator will help make your dream wedding a reality by being able to dip into their many years of experience! A coordinator will also help relieve a lot of the stress that goes into the wedding planning process and makes it more enjoyable for the bride and groom!

Tell us about a favorite, unusual or most interesting moment at a wedding:

When a bride insisted on a family member baking her wedding cake after I advised her not to, the cake fell as they were cutting it—and I caught it (by holding it up with a napkin!)

What is the best advice you give to a couple when planning their wedding?

Enjoy your engagement!

What are 3 words that describe your personality?

Dedicated. Creative. Organized.

What's your favorite book/movie/work of art?

Father of the Bride.

If you weren't in your current profession, what would you do instead?

I really can't imagine doing anything else! I have always wanted to be a wedding coordinator; as far back as I can remember. I even did my "business plan" assignment in high school about being a wedding coordinator!

What's your favorite way to wind down after a hard day?

A good book or catching up on television shows.
