When did you join the Planned Perfection team? I joined Planned Perfection in 2011.

 

How did you get involved in the wedding and event industry? I love weddings, people, details, lists and organizing! I started researching how I could use my interests/strengths in a career and I discovered the ever growing wedding industry. I got my Wedding and Event Planner certification in 2011 and haven’t looked back!

 

Favorite current or upcoming wedding trend? I love fun lounges! Food trucks for desserts and late night snacks are pretty great too!

 

Any trend you’d like to see left in 2018? Burlap

 

What is your favorite part of the planning process? I love bringing all the details together, the relationships built during this planning process. I love the excitement of the event coming to life and making sure my couples are taken care of so they can relax and enjoy their most important day. I also love when clients put personal touches into their wedding details—meet at a ball game? Have a hot dog cart for late night bites! Table names of the places you’ve traveled, your grandmothers dress lace around your bouquet, I love those details. 

 

Best piece of advice for a newly engaged couple starting to plan their wedding? Be true to yourself throughout the planning process! This is your day! If you don’t want to wear white, don’t!

 

Favorite reception song? The one you dance to in the back when no one is watching... “I wanna dance with somebody” gets me everytime!

 

Favorite flower? I’m a classic peony kind of girl. A flower cutting garden in my backyard is my 2019 goal!

 

When you aren’t creating timelines and alphabetizing escort cards, what can we find you doing? I love spending time with my husband Chris and son Caden. I spend as much time with them as possible. We love to go on cruises and day trips! When we aren’t traveling we try to relax at home working on our little fixer upper house!
