Tell us a little about your business.

I started planning in Las Vegas at a venue off the strip back in 1999. After that I decided I wanted to have my own business, helping couples create lasting memories during the most exciting event in their lives! I love to serve and see people happy and having a great time. I provide day-of coordinating all the way to full planning.

What inspired you want to be a planner?

After my first wedding, I realized that this was a passion of mine. Everything about a wedding from beginning to end makes me happy. I have been to enough weddings to see what works and what doesn’t and I want every couple I serve to have a stress free day. That is what is important to me.

How long have you been in business?

I started my business here in Colorado back in 2010. I did it for a few years, got to know a lot of vendors out here and had a blast doing it. But I had small kiddos back then and decided to take time off to raise them properly. I started back up this past January and I’m excited to see what next year is going to be like!

What’s your favorite part of the job?

My favorite part of the job is getting to know my couples. I invest deeply into helping them get everything together and make sure they can relax the day of their wedding, knowing that I have everything under control and their best interests at heart.

How would you describe your style?

Laid back and easy going. I like to go with the flow. I know how to be professional and always keep that as my first priority. But when I can get to know my clients, it is so much more fun to be myself and help them find what they want for their special day. I can help with any style they want. I do a lot of research if I am given something I have not done before and then help with all the details as much as possible.

How would you describe your personality?

I am a server. My clients come first. I love others just the way they are and hope they do the same. I am fun loving and try to go beyond the expectations of others. I love creating new things and becoming friends with anyone that wants to be one with me.

What type of client is best suited for you?

I love people for who they are. Unique and fun. If they are willing to trust me with their planning, I get to know them and really try to please them as much as possible. I look for couples who want to show themselves off as who they are in the style that they choose. Putting in details that are uniquely them and willing to have some fun. Traditional works too and I am all for that. But this industry changes all the time and so do people and ideas. I am always up for something old and something new. It’s all about the client and their relationship with each other anyway.

What are your hobbies or non-work-related activities?

I love to craft and scrapbook. I dabble in sewing and quilting too. Camping, fishing and gardening are my favorite outdoor activities.

If you met with a bride and groom and literally had ONE minute to tell them why they should use your company, what would you say?

I believe every couple deserves a day to celebrate their relationship, but the stress of wedding planning can overshadow the excitement of getting married. I help couples like you to focus on making joyful memories as you celebrate your love. I handle the details so you can feel confident that your day will go smoothly.

How far in advance should couples contact you to start their planning with you?

The sooner the better. The more time I have to get to know them and get all their details together, the more I can customize my services to them.

What tips or advice can you give couples planning their big day?

Sit down and prioritize everything that will go into the wedding. Make your top 3 things that you absolutely have to have, then go from there. In the end, when it comes down to budgeting, it will be a little easier to decide on what to really focus on and spend a little more on and either go cheaper on the lower items or take them off all together.
