I was studying Linguistics at the College of William and Mary when I found a true passion for event planning after being elected to serve as social chair for three different campus groups at the same time. From planning fun little socials for my show choir, to full on formals for my sorority, I found that I truly loved putting together an event where people could relax and enjoy themselves. It brought me a true satisfaction that I had never felt before through any other job or position.
Wanting to pursue this passion, I looked into changing my major, but found that my university had nothing really related to the field I was looking into. I decided to take a semester off school and intern with an actual event planner before I altered my course, to make sure I knew what I would be getting myself into. During the course of my internship, I learned a lot and very quickly affirmed my desire to be an event planner. More than any other events, I loved the weddings. There was something so special about watching a group of people who loved each other come together and celebrate that love, having some of the best times of their lives, and knowing that I had helped make that happen for them. With my mind made up, I left William and Mary to pursue a specialized education in Wedding Planning and became a Member of the Association of Bridal Consultants. In the time since then, I have gained experience by working in various facets of the industry, from catering to venues, and, naturally, with a few event planners.
I have now started my own company under this philosophy: I will always find ways to incorporate the individuality of my clients in order to create their perfect event. I will always practice professionalism, respect, transparency, and integrity in all client and vendor relationships. I will, without adding unduly to their budgets, do everything I can to make one of the most important days in my clients’ lives one of the most enjoyable.
