I was born and raised in the Great Lakes Bay Region however, I have recently relocated to South Lyon, MI after tying the knot myself this past September. I am a 2017 Central Michigan University Alumna with a Bachelor’s degree in Recreation and Event Management with an emphasis in Commercial Recreation, along with a business minor in Professional Sales. I have become Internationally Certified in Wedding Planning, Internationally Certified in Event Planning and have been a Certified Planner/Coordinator since May 8, 2017 when I started my 30-week unpaid internship with a fellow wedding/event planning company.
Upon completing my internship with Splendid Events Company alongside my wonderful mentor, Andrea, as well as becoming a member of their team since 2017 and starting my own company in February of 2018 - I have completed my dream of becoming a full-time, professional and fully certified Wedding and Event Planner.
In my free time I enjoy crafting, interior design/decorating, creating wedding stationary and other collateral materials in addition to planning a variety of life’s celebratory events. It is a wonderful thing when passion meets work and I am beyond grateful for a career that frees me from the typical 9-5 schedule, allows me to travel and visit breathtaking and historical venues across my home state, as well as work with all romantic couples in love - bringing their dream wedding day vision and goals to life!
While I am very passionate, motivated, creative, detail focused, organized and innovative, I am also very family oriented, adventurous and a lover of Michigan’s great outdoors. During the summer and winter months you will find my Husband, two husky pups and I at my childhood lake house, engaging in many water sports and boating or snowmobiling throughout Northern Michigan/Upper Peninsula during the off-season.
