What do you love the very most about what you do? I love that I get to help create the happiest day of the couple’s life. This is the day people dream about forever and I get to see that all come together and I find that pretty incredible.

Tell the brides-to- be your best wedding advice. Don’t stress about the little things because in the end it won’t even matter.
What is your most favorite wedding trend right now? Circle arbors. I love the non-traditional look.
What do you do that makes you stand out more so than others in your industry? The passion I have to make a couples wedding day the best. I like to build a relationship with the couple; they aren’t just another client to me.
What is your favorite product or service that you offer brides? Please describe it. Our Oceanfront Lawn for ceremonies. It has a beautiful ocean/beach view. You can make it your own. It looks so beautiful especially near sunset.

Will you have an assistant during the wedding? No, but I will be there to handle all your needs.
How far in advance should a bride to be contact you before the wedding? I have had brides book over a year in advance as well as 2 weeks. As long as we have the availability I would love to work with you.
How long have your been doing what you do? I started interning in the wedding planning industry 4 years ago, but started working weddings and events when I was a freshman in high school.
What are 5 adjectives that describe you and/or your business? Energetic, personable, creative, stress free, and passionate.
What is the most unique thing you have ever seen at a wedding? One of my favorites was the bride and groom were huge Clemson fans so they had the real Clemson tiger travel to their wedding. He came out and the crowd went nuts and everyone was chanting the fight song. It was pretty awesome.
