Do you want a wedding day that truly embraces who you are?

Coordinating and planning for over a decade has taught me one thing: each couple is unique.

I care a tremendous amount about each couple I work with, and thus, see it as my job to help create your wedding your way – creating very individual weddings from intimate and organic affairs to the more glamorous and opulent occasions.

From 9 years of experience in the industry, I’ve learned that the best weddings are those that are completely reflective of who you are as a couple and what you core priorities are.  As a project manager, I understand, how to combine logistics and planning with design and personality to do just this. 


Do you want to savor your wedding day?

I am the mindful planner, helping you savor your wedding. I left a successful career in corporate marketing and management to pursue a long-standing passion for organizing and managing events. As most of my corporate career was within the wellness and health industry, I never understood fast paced weddings (which is the accepted wedding industry standard). As such, I incorporate my passion for wellness throughout our planning time together as well as with your wedding, making sure you’re taking time to do the things you love throughout the process.  

My professionalism, warm personality and superb eye for detail mean that you can truly relax and enjoy the planning process without having to worry about a thing. 



Are you team players?

A fun fact: I played international soccer (as a defender, no less), which has contributed greatly to my attitude towards teamwork. No matter the wedding destination, I work with local vendors to ensure everyone feels that they are part of the team to make your day special.

I’ve worked events solo, and have managed and worked on teams as large as 45 vendors, which is where my project management experience comes into play.

People can overlook the importance of who they choose for their vendors. Reviews and testimonies are of course extremely helpful in narrowing research. When I’m working with a couple directly, it’s personal to me, how I research and resource vendors. I want to ensure you have a team, who is crazy good at what they do, who fully support your vision with positive energy and professionalism!


Wanna getaway?

With a thirst for adventure, I am a destination-wedding planner, specializing in areas such as; Lake Tahoe, Big Sur, Carmel, California coastline as well as internationally locations such as Italy, France and Mexico. With over a decade of event-planning experience, I am well connected to special venues across that globe that may end up being a perfect fit for your wedding experience.
