I love planning weddings! Somehow I ended up with that odd mix of personality traits that don’t usually go together – extremely detailed and organized but also creative and social. After 14 years of experience, I am known for being able to handle difficult situations – and have learned I actually enjoy problem-solving. In fact, it’s probably the thing I love most about being a wedding planner. I pride myself on being a calming influence and believe in treating others as you would like to be treated. I honestly can’t imagine doing anything other than what I do, and consider it an honor to be part of each client’s wedding. Although I am a Buckeye, I grew up eating grits, drinking sweet tea and summering on The Outerbanks so I suppose North Carolina was destined to be my home. I couldn’t live without my husband who does all the cooking (but still lets me dream up the menus each week) and who also rids my life of spiders which are my one debilitating phobia. Put me on a lake with friends, family and a good book and I am as content as could be. Overcoming challenges, using my creativity, meeting and working with all kinds of people and companies…I’m in my dream job and couldn’t be happier.
