How did you get into wedding planning?

I like to think that the wedding world found me when I wasn’t necessarily looking. I had been in the entertainment industry for a long time, planning and coordinating galas and fundraisers for various dance and music companies in MA. A DJ friend of mind asked me if I had ever thought of doing weddings and that was it! I immediately started researching and fell head over heels in love! I began taking wedding planning courses and learned more and more of the industry until I was fully immersed in everything weddings. I haven’t looked back!

What’s your favorite part of the job?

Other than seeing the happy and overjoyed faces of my clients on their wedding day (yes, I still cry), I really love how this job stretches my creativity and throws me in a completely different direction than where I thought I would be. Every single wedding and event, I learn something new-whether it be about my clients, their lives, their love stories, or the industry…it changes me for the better.

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned, and would pass along to other new wedding planners just getting started?

One of the biggest lessons I learned and have kept with me in both my professional and personal life is that you can always learn something new. Always. Things are moving at warp speed now, especially with social media, so not only do you have to be on top of trends but you also have to have the knowledge to go ahead and education others on it! And of course, never be afraid to ask for advice. There are some awesome people out there willing to help and teach along the way.

What are your hobbies or non-work-related activities?

I’ve been a dancer for almost 17 years now so it would obviously be dancing- to anything! Whether it’s teaching a beginner’s ballet lesson or going back to my student days at Broadway Dance Center, it’s one of the best non-work-related activities I do!

Any great stories from working with a client?

I LOVE all of my clients’ stories! Honestly they are all so unique and their wedding days are just a manifestation of how awesome they truly are. From quickly running outside to get Wi-Fi and download the song that my bride really wanted to surprise her groom with, or sitting in the bathroom sewing the rip the MOH made in her dress because she really had to dance to that song, the stories are never ending and incredibly fun!

What is your current favorite color combination?

Right now I’m in love with blush pink and gray. It’s just pure romance at its finest. I’m also falling in love with corals and bright yellows. I think it’s the perfect combination for a playful yet romantic summer wedding. I’d also say anything that sparkles too but that’s not exactly a color!

Are there any trends that you absolutely love or would love to see brides leave behind?

I love it when brides have their own trends! It’s so much fun when you see a wedding that incorporates everything that makes the couple unique. It’s hard because I love Pinterest as much as the next girl, but when weddings look to “Pinterest-y” you get the feeling that the wedding is not personal. Yes, it’s all about the details but the DETAILS that make YOU unique and your relationship one of a kind. That’s my absolute favorite trend!
