I'm an event planner and coordinator, to-do list junkie, and lover of all things organization and efficiency. I help women make their dream event visions come to life, all the while helping them to enjoy the process and sweet season of life they're in.
I currently live just outside of the Twin Cities area with my husband, Brian, where you can find me checking out every new restaurant (total foodies), spending time out in the sun, or hanging out with my awesome family while my cat, Nala, lounges on my lap.
— actually me, ask my husband
I'm not a ride-or-die chick... I have questions & will need to update my to-do list. Where are we riding to? And will there be food there?
For all you enneagram fanatics out there, I'm a type 6. Which means, I naturally crave security. And how do you make a control freak feel secure? You make lists, you have a plan, and you keep things organized. This is my superpower. I (formally) began organizing events back in college and continued into my first several jobs out of school, organizing various office & community events. If you want to get real technical, I could tell you that I've been helping my mom throw my own themed birthday parties back into the elementary school years, but we won't go there. I found my love for planning weddings specifically when I got engaged in 2017. But even at that time, I noticed that there were too many options all clamoring for your attention.
There doesn't need to be a 250+ task list of things to do. You don't have to comb through every nook and cranny, just to make sure you're not missing out. And you definitely don't need your second cousin's best friend's sister, Karen, giving you her opinion on your centerpieces. Your wedding should be about your marriage. And YES, I am a total sap and I do use cliches in everyday lingo. But I believe that marriage is a covenant, between you, your spouse, and God above. It's a representation of how Christ loves the church, how God loves us, and there is zero room for stress or anxiety in that. Your wedding day should be a reflection of your marriage- full of love, joy, grace, and peace. I aim to help all of my brides feel that way throughout our entire process together.
Gimme that drive thru option!
Panera is my jam. Dine in, carry out, drive thru, and delivery, I love it all.

Switzerland all the way! The crisp, clean air, those big open skies, and THE MOUNTAINS. *sigh*
