describe your artistic style:
My style is uber-flexible as I truly like to tell my client's story rather than infuse my style into my client's weddings. However, when creating a design to tell a unique story, I am often inspired by fashion, interior design and other art mediums. I try to stay away from recirculating designs from Pinterest and rather try to infuse our client's designs with a unique and fresh perspective. We have designed events from classic elegance to modern chic to whimsical rustic - we execute different aesthetics completely across the board.
Good food, good music and unique art inspires me in many forms. I see it as my duty to go out an experience life and new adventures to infuse unique ideas into my designs. The foodie, fashionista and home decor aficionado in me loves to explore and be refreshed regularly so that I can create for my clients.
what do you love about weddings?
My favorite part of a wedding is finding the unique story between the couple, their loved ones and the new families that they create. Telling this story throughout event design is hugely important to me - and creating the same continuity through the flow of the event in coordination is key. If relaxation and fun are key - both the design and the experience of the event should reflect that.
I also absolutely love guiding a couple through the process of planning a milestone event. I get to enjoy this new adventure with them and assist them in enjoying the process, not just the end product.
