About Me

I started my career in the hospitality industry when I was 18, first as an Innkeeper of a B&B, which inspired me to earn a degree in Hospitality Management. I've operated hotels, restaurants, and catering businesses over the last fifteen years, receiving accolades from the New York Times, Sunset Magazine, LA Times, Travel + Leisure, and Conde Nast. In my experience, one of the ultimate expressions of hospitality comes in the form of a wedding. I love taking care of people, exceeding expectations, and creating experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime. I also love the detail, organization, and logistical management required to put together an event as complex as a wedding. Since beginning my wedding planning business in 2008, my weddings and styled shoots have been featured in Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, Wedding Chicks, Grey Likes Weddings, and Once Wed.

I feel deeply honored to not only do something I truly love, but to also be a part of the day when a couple announces their love and commitment before a community of loved ones who will celebrate and support them on their journey.

The weddings I plan are characterized by understated elegance, a carefully orchestrated flow, and attention to every detail. Past couples have praised my creativity and unwaveringly calm presence. In addition to planning weddings, I also offer consulting services to wedding venues and aspiring planners.

Whether you are looking to get married in a rustic barn, a vineyard, or a resort, the Central Coast has it all! There are so many amazing wedding venues and professionals to choose from, it can feel overwhelming. Let me guide you through the planning process, so you can relax and enjoy your day!
