Meet your planner

Together let's plan a wedding that shares your love story through the many details that truly reflect you.

You love the idea of saying I DO with the jaw-dropping backdrops of the West Coast.

You want that incredible wedding but don’t want the planning to takeover your life.

You want to be involved in the planning decisions but want to streamline the process so you’re choosing the right fit for the best value.

You throw away the thought of a fully traditional wedding to add in your own unique traditions that reflect you both.

You believe in celebrating your big day rather than working it

You believe in planning a marriage more beautiful than your wedding.

1. Cats or Dogs: Cats! Always cats!
2. When not working, you will find me playing with my kids, sipping coffee or red wine and on some kind of adventure. 
3. My Love Language is Words of Affirmation & Quality Time
4. Popular phrase of 2022: FINALLY!
5. Favourite movie: When Harry Met Sally
6. Dream vacation spot: Greece
