When people began asking me a while back, why I do what I do for a living when there are so many less stressful jobs out there, I had to take a step back and really think about that.  I realized that my "why" is what sets me apart from other planners and designers and is the main reason why clients are so happy. 


My "why" is because I am passionate about weddings and special events.  Passionate about making sure my clients enjoy the planning process instead of feeling bogged down, overwhelmed and stressed.  Passionate that their vision is created and brought to life, making their wedding the best day of their life so far! I have over 25+ years' experience in bringing your special moments to life through proper planning and our design expertise and take great pride in making our brides and grooms feel special and well cared for throughout our time together. Designing and creating your event are all extremely important and it is imperative we get you started on the right foot, right from the beginning. 


Though my company is based in the Raleigh Durham North Carolina area, better known as The Triangle, me and my team have coordinated, planned and designed for hundreds of clients from birthday parties and corporate events, to weddings throughout the Triangle as well as the United States.  


My background in Floral Design, Fashion and Planning, all allows me an unique opportunity to be able to interpret a client's wants into their dream event. Everywhere I go, I try to enhance and change the lives of others through sheer diligence, hard work and perpetual eye for design and details.


I love giving back to our communities which is why I am very involved in volunteering with local charities like the Pretty In Pink Foundation, Triangle Family Services Gingerbread Benefit, American Red Cross, Ronald McDonald House, CCFH (Center for Child and Family Health).  I enjoy helping others that are less fortunate and have been a long time member of The Summit Church where I sing in the All Campus Worship Choir.  I am supported and surrounded by my loving husband, William; four children, Kyle (and wife Julie), Douglas, Court (and wife Daniela) & Cait;  granddaughter, Blayze; and my dogs Tucker and Bruce.
