What made you interested in becoming a wedding planner? It involves my three favorites : pretty things, being helpful, and love
What is your favorite part of the job? I love seeing all of the unique ways each couple personalizes their wedding. My favorite weddings are the ones with lots of personality and I think it’s so fun getting to know quirky things about my couples and then seeing those reflected in their big day!
Tell us about one of your favorite weddings you’ve worked on. I don’t have one particular wedding that stands out (I love them all!), but I have to say my favorite part of every wedding is the father-of-the-bride speeches. I get choked up every time!
What is your background? I studied Art History and Psychology at Minnesota State University and also earned my certification in Wedding and Event Planning through QC School. I started out in the wedding industry working at Carlson Craft, making wedding stationery. I’ve taken what I’ve learned at Carlson Craft to Simply Elegant, and work with our brides on invitations and decor styling. In addition to Simply Elegant, I also work at Luxe Bridal Couture.
What do you like to do in your free time? In addition to Simply Elegant and Luxe, I also work at the Animal Humane Society and I have my own little brood of pets at home! I love to craft and watch girly movies and listen to girly music. When I have the time, I love to travel and see the world.
What are a few fun facts about you? I have been to over 16 countries, but I’ve never been to Canada. I’ve taken China Painting lessons. I’m an only child. I wish I could still dress like I did when I was 6 years old. I’ve had the same best friend since 2nd grade. I don’t like peanut butter.
