I started designing invitations at 24 and started event planning at 28.
What’s the most eccentric request you’ve received from a bride?
A bride asked me to stay with her the night before her wedding so we could review the entire next day... minute by minute.
What’s your favorite aspect of a wedding?
I'm honored to be hired to be apart of this special moment but I must say I love when the ceremony is complete and the bride and groom are married! The tension is released and then it's on to the party! I really do love the two words Mr. and Mrs. I find myself always buying vintage items that say those words.
What other industry would you be in if not this one?
Which famous wedding in history would you have most liked to be involved with and why?
Prince William and Kate. I would have loved to have learned the process and protocol of a Royal Wedding. Plus… I was a great admirer of Princess Diana.
