Amanda and Brian are full of sass and great ideas! A few months before their wedding we met and chatted about their wedding details. They wanted a black, purple, and gold wedding.

The next vendor I want to highlight is someone I am working closely with on an upcoming wedding in May. Catharine Perry Design specializes in wedding branding. I will be honest, I was a skeptic […]

Wow, 2015. The year I put it all out there and said “YES, I can do this”. The year that grew me not only as a woman but as a wife, a wedding planner, a daughter of Christ, and a small business owner. My first wedding taught me how to exercise the force majeure clause […]

It is crazy to think that I have completed 6 weddings before I even thought about doing a styled shoot! Styled shoots scared me. You had to be a designer, have a “vision”, everything looked so flawless and ethereal, and amazing. I felt inadequate. I decided in October that I had to own that fear […]

I normally meet my potential clients at Starbucks but Kelly highly suggested a local watering hole by her house. Who am I to say no to a bar with heavy wine pours? As we sat, sipped, and munched she spilled all the details about her wedding day in St. Michael’s, MD, her wonderful fiancé Gary, and moving from […]

Kate and Alan got engaged on a volcano in Iceland….Iceland! I knew after talking to them that their wedding day would be just as magical and romantic as that proposal. They did not disappoint! Kate and I worked together for almost a year brainstorming and preparing all the details of her day. The sage, ivory, […]
