Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I am originally from Denver, and planned events throughout the state of Colorado, which included everything from small weddings in the mountains to large corporate events in the heart of Downtown Denver.

That was in 2011 and since then I have been living here full time planning weddings and events around the country. During this time I have been lucky enough to preside over more than 100 weddings, as well as numerous corporate events for the likes of Shocktop, Cisco, Oceana and The Belize Tourism Board.
