A Complete Planning & Design Experience


I grew up traveling with my family. Every year we’d pack our bags and head to the beach or the mountains or sometimes a big family reunion. I still remember the excitement and the anticipation in the weeks leading up to our departure - imagining the new sights, sounds, flavors and experiences that were on the horizon.

Today, I seek to infuse that imaginative excitement into every destination wedding I plan. It is the joy of my career to connect with couples from all over the U.S. and the world and conjure the perfect setting and style to tell their stories. For me, this is the best life has to offer - to connect, travel, explore, eat, drink and seep into the local culture, and of course...to celebrate!
