Despite being married over two years ago, I continually reminisce about the wonders of my wedding day. I witnessed all of my wedding dreams perfectly blend together to create a day that my husband and I surely will never forget. Carefully coordinated vendors and planners helped bring my vision to life, and a room full of family and friends magnified the love felt that day. It’s a joy to be able to today share this gift of a similar experience by managing the big and small details on a wedding day in order to ensure you are able to be fully present on your day! 

When I am not assisting couples with pulling together and executing wedding details, I help students as a pediatric occupational therapist, and cherish moments spent loving on my daughter Noelle, snapping photos in attempt to capture and hold onto every moment we share. I relish in my time spent with my family and appreciate the memories I am building with my nieces and nephews. I enjoy creating digital art and prints in my free time, and will one day be able to play a full song on the ukulele. Life is busy, but good, and I’m lucky to have such loving people surrounding and supporting me.

I started my obsession with weddings in 2014 by writing inspiration, tips and tricks for millennial brides through popular wedding blogs and websites. From rings to registries, I've seen it all - but, I have to admit, I'm still a sucker for a good love story. I am always interested to learn how a couple met and when they walk down the aisle after officially tying the knot, it takes my breath away.  

When I'm not helping brides on their big day, I am a social media consultant working behind the scenes to help make small businesses shine! My attention to detail really comes in handy when planning events (and watching true crime shows). Besides binging Netflix, you can catch me near the Art Museum with my puppy, Piper, sipping on a matcha latte with my nose in a book or escaping to the beach on a cool day to sit with my toes in the sand breathing in the fresh, salty air.

Thirteen years ago, I entered the wedding industry. As an assistant florist, I gained a quick understanding of texture mixing, color palettes, and floral design. Wanting to extend my services in the industry, I began playing harp and piano for wedding ceremonies around the east coast which brought an additional understanding of timelines, formalities, and personalization of style. Even now, as a lead planner with YSDE, my goals for ‘designing’ with couples remains the same. I help create, organize, and story-tell. My intention is not only to alleviate stress in the planning process, but to assist in presenting personality, artistry, and imagery representative of each couple.
 
When I am not working with couples on pulling together the details of their day, I am enjoying my hometown with my husband after a move back from Los Angeles, California where I was working in music therapy and instructing at a music conservatory. Within a month of moving back, I got engaged and then married within five months…a true wedding coordinator challenge! I dream of creating a new-aged music school in downtown Lancaster with hopes of creating a community based school that connects all sects of art…including the wedding industry!

Having been a bride myself, I truly enjoyed the planning process and all of the special details that add up to the beautiful picture of the wedding day. Danielle was my Wedding Planner and through working with each other, we quickly became friends. When the opportunity came to join her growing team, I knew right away I was going to love working with her and with couples to make their wedding day run smoothly! I loved Danielle’s vision for her business and her style of work, which I was fortunate to experience first-hand as a bride. As a Lead Assistant, I love seeing each bride and groom’s style and design come through their decorations. I am fascinated by every little detail thought through as well as the impressive items that are hand made by the couple or even other family members. Seeing the room change as florals are delivered is also one of my favorite parts of the day. It’s amazing to see the different flower selection by season, color, and by each couple.
 
My husband and I have moved around the Northeast quite a bit and have recently made roots back in Central Pennsylvania. Through moving around, I have become addicted to travel and going on trips to explore new areas & try new restaurants. I love being outside (hopefully soaking up the sunshine) and spend my time running to train for my next race or playing golf . I also love all things home decorating and doing my best to copy all of my favorite HGTV shows. And when I’m not dreaming of sunshine, you’ll find me at home playing with my little poodle or cooking up something in the kitchen.
