rochester, ny & finger lakes ny Wedding Planner & Podcast Host

I'm a Rochester, NY and Finger Lakes NY wedding planner and podcast host. I work with busy couples who want their wedding planning experience to feel smooth and effortless. 

Their wedding symbolizes the beginning of a new chapter for both their families. Their wedding reflects their refined tastes and serves as the ultimate opportunity for them to create an experience that will be remembered for generations to come because it's a special day not just for them, but for their loved ones, too.
   


Since 2007, I’ve produced events from coast to coast and been fortunate to have my work featured in several outlets. You can view our Press page for more. I've worked with royalty, heads of state, and celebrities. Thanks to my experience planning international events, I approach my events with a focus on precision, originality, and intentional design.


I believe that life's too short to waste it on moments that don't give you joy.

Quick Facts

FOR THE SKIMMERS

As my family has grown, so has my perspective deepened in events. Time with our loved ones is finite. When everyone gathers for your wedding, you want to immerse yourself on that day. You want to hug them and and revel in the moment. To give you the ability to do this is why we do what we do.

My family is my everything.

A FEW MORE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW:

I've been dancing in some capacity since I was 4. At the end of the night while we're cleaning up, I'm probably dancing. Don't judge. Also, I can't resist a dance party.

Dancing makes me feel alive.

No. 02

I can be persnickety when it comes to grammatical rules. Attention to detail is something I can't turn off, even when it comes to menus at public restaurants. Luckily, this serves me well in my line of work.

I'm a grammar queen.
