How did you get into event planning and design?

I find deep satisfaction in designing and implementing fresh ways to communicate messages.In this case it’s the message of the couple’s love, traditions, and core beliefs. Plus, I had to channel my styling energy somewhere else after my hus- band asked me to stop rearranging his furniture at home.

What services of yours do you think couples find most helpful?

Event styling and the floral design are just im- plementations of a vision. But our most helpful service is our design consultations where visions get created. That’s when couples dig deeper to learn more about themselves and what they like in relation to how they want to celebrate their big day.

Where should couples splurge and save?

It takes some work for couples to figure out what their priorities are but it’s worth it! So splurge on energy and time to figure that out. That’s when you’ll know where to splurge and where to save.

What are some of the more unique things you’ve helped couples in- corporate into their wedding?

There was an occasion when a tabletop design had so many desserts it seemed straight out of Willy Wonka’s factory. The bride just loved desserts so much that I didn’t think she should have to walk to a designated “dessert table” to get her sweet fix. I also helped transform the entryway of a mill building into a quirky Victorian living room, complete with trees, hanging plants and a stuffed peacock.

Top 3 items in your 911 bag?

Floral clipper, spool of wire, and bright pink duct tape.

Most valuable piece of advice you acquired over the years for couples?

When things start to feel stressful and hard, regroup, stay connected to one another and remember why you were plan- ning this wedding in the first place.
