WORDS TO LIVE BY: "Wherever you are, be all there."
While I was born and raised in Tucson I have a heart for travel and thankfully my husband and I are both blessed with large extended families that reach all corners of the U.S. I love antique hunting, creative DIY projects with my toddler, stationery, beautiful organization inspirations, and anything involving a sunny Arizona day with my family.
In my mid 20's I made a lifelong dream come true and opened a successful bridal boutique. It was there that my passion for event planning truly came alive. Working with families and helping them plan such important events in their lives truly fills my heart with joy. I love helping a client take a small idea and turn it into a spectacular reality.
WORDS TO LIVE BY: “Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.” - Edmund Lee
