Owner, & Exec Planner


My favorite part of planning is the actual day! I love seeing all the pieces come together and the whole planning process come to life. I truly have a passion for designing and creating unforgettable experiences for my clients from the beginning to the end!

I have been in the hospitality industry planning fabulous weddings and events for over 15 years, including 10 years in Downtown Chicago. My husband and I moved to sunny Florida from Columbus, Ohio 7 years ago and now have two little girls.

I have been fortunate to be able to coordinate weddings and events at beautiful venues and now be on preferred vendors lists at  The Ringling Museum of Art, The Ritz Carlton Sarasota, Selby Gardens, Powel Crosley Estate, The Westin Sarasota, as well as many other hotels and venues in the Sarasota/Tampa Bay area.

I will be by your side throughout your wedding or event till the end, making sure that everything ​is going perfectly. I am creative and organized and will make sure every last detail is taken care of, so the only thing you have to think about is enjoying yourself and making memories!

Nothing is more important to me than making your day exactly what you want it to be. I would love to work with you to make your wedding or event the perfect memory!
