Why did you decide to work in the wedding/event industry?

I enjoy working with people, which is so much of what this industry is about.  I am very detail oriented, so I love the attention to the detail needed for success.

What’s your favorite season for a wedding, and why?

Fall.  That's when I got married.  I love the colors!

What do you love about your job?

It never gets old. It's different each day. Different events, different couples, different color scheme and challenges-- it keeps us on our toes, and you can be really passionate about every project because it’s always something new.

What is your best wedding planning tip?

Don't sweat the small stuff.  In the end, it all comes together, and you get to spend the rest of your lives together.
