"I have always loved planning wedding and big events, and have been involved with the industry for four years. I studied Art History in undergrad at UVA (Col ’10), and finished my Master’s degree in 2012 with the intention of opening up a small-scale gallery in the DC-area. Fate brought me back to Charlottesville shortly after graduate school, and I’ve been dreaming up weddings and making couples happy ever since. I am incredibly organized with an acute attention to detail. I have a passion for art and design, and I absolutely love working with clients to bring their visions to life on their most special day.
I have two Golden Retrievers who lovingly greet me every afternoon when I get home from work, and we love hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains. I also enjoy hot yoga, wine-tasting, traveling, HGTV Fixer-Upper marathons, and all-things Nancy Drew."
"So I am absolutely head over heels in love with the wedding industry. Prior to this love affair, I spent a couple of years pursuing a doctoral degree in Criminal Justice. Then one day I had this epiphany… I was completely in the wrong field. It took no time at all to REALIZE what I was meant to do. I knew that with every caring, creative, organized, and detail-oriented bone in my body, from now on I would dedicate myself to helping others make their wedding day dreams come true!
My methodology (the former academic in me likes to come out sometimes) is very simple: Listen,
imagine, and execute. I am pretty against the pushy, know-it-all, you are just another client approach to wedding planning. I am honored to say that a lot of what I know and believe in comes from my beautiful and talented sister Bianca, boutique owner - Just B - based in Springfield, MA where I am from.
I am laid-back, quirky, and eclectic. I am a planner through and through though spontaneity and I get along really well too. I have an affinity for art, poetry, photography, and discovering new music. I could not be happier now that I found my calling in life. Family is my passion. My two sisters are super cool and my nieces and nephews are even cooler. I am happily married to my best friend Jessy. "
