What to Expect
When you meet with me, you will find that I value you as a person and believe firmly that your wedding or event should tell YOUR story and be about YOU. My initial consultation is free and consists mostly of us getting to know each other - I want to hear about how you met, your interests, your family life, your social life - and I want you to know those things about me also. I believe in creating a bond of friendship so that we will work together for one common goal - your amazing wedding/event!
After a career as an executive level administrative assistant, and planning weddings and events on the side and for employers, I was able in 2016 to retire early and start my own wedding/event planning business. I am a firm believer that every bride & groom should have a wedding planner to help them with every detail, and handle everything that needs to be done so they can relax and actually enjoy their wedding day. I also plan social events and parties -- I love bringing people together for life's celebrations and am thrilled to see smiles on happy faces! My forte is helping you plan an event that is uniquely YOU!
Additional Booking Notes
I offer a few different wedding planning packages, all which can be customized to fit your specific needs and budget. These include Partial Planning to get you started with doing all the planning yourselves -- tools to help you; Wedding Day Management -- which most people refer to as "day of coordination; and Full Planning.
I also offer planning for social events, such as birthdays, retirements, baby showers, bridal showers, holiday gatherings -- and more!
Influences & Inspiration
I have always loved bringing people together in social situations and making people happy. When I planned my own wedding in 2002, I fell in love with everything to do with weddings. I have some really great mentors and friends in Dayton and Cincinnati who are awesome influences!
