Hi, friend! I am so glad you stopped by and am so excited to get to know you and your fiance! I cannot wait to start planning your dream day! This passion of mine began in 2013 and I have been so fortunate to have met some amazing couples on this amazing journey. I love curating all different types of aesthetics, from light and airy neutrals to deep and edgy elegance, I love exploring new design styles with my clients. While the design element of the wedding day is my jam, I love putting together a logistically sound day. My favorite part is preparing detailed itineraries! Above all else, I love getting to know my couples through out the entire planning process! While our home is in Grand Rapids, MI, I would love to take what we curate anywhere in the country or world!

   My husband and I live in East Grand Rapids, MI with our two fur babies...yes, we treat them like human children and yes, they have middle names (that is completely normal, right?). My husband and I have been married for two years now. Marriage is awesome and I wouldn't trade these two years for anything in the world! In the summers you can find us at my family cottage in Northern Michigan with a cider in my hand...I CANNOT do beer, tried it so many times..just not my thing. In the Fall you can find us tailgating at Michigan State football games, Sparty on! I am slightly Netflix obsessed and may or may not have watched the entire series of FRIENDS more than once (the obsession could have been considered a problem, I didn't realize it at the time). Friend bonding time with a glass of wine are a regular occurrence!

   I cannot wait to take this journey with you and help curate your perfect big day. I can't wait for our friendship to start!
