The couples I meet inspire me daily and fuel my passion for designing events as unique as they are. Whether it involves an intimate, garden gathering in the rolling hills of Virginia, a floral-filled tent on a majestic estate, or a cocktail party on the terrace of a historic landmark in Washington, D.C. - whatever we imagine together, it’s my pleasure to make it a reality.
I am an imaginative individual who speaks from my soul. I don’t just love to create, I need to create. I’m at my best when I’m dreaming up ideas, inspiring others, and making magical things happen. I’m driven by my devotion to design and surpassing all expectations. I’m always in search of adventure, exciting challenges, and unexpected ways to deliver the understated elegance and sophistication my events have become known for.
My approach to weddings is not as a single occasion but as a continuous flow of meaningful experiences that leave a couple and their family and friends in awe.
I relish being part of such joyful and momentous days in the lives of others; my enthusiasm for every client and each wedding is real. So too is my promise to ensure my clients take in every moment of this singular time in their lives while I happily handle everything else.
