Creative Director + Branch Manager
Just do you. Seriously, its that easy (it should be that easy!) I find myself saying it a lot to clients, as to me, it’s the most important thing about planning your own wedding…
I believe when you just do you everything else falls into place - and on your wedding day, that is exactly how it should be. I believe that your wedding should be classic and timeless, but most of all, your wedding should be a reflection of you and your partner.
When I first started planning weddings and events I thought it was all about working with vendors, maximizing a budget, and executing a seamless event. Over time (and 150+ weddings later) I can now say that working with awesome vendors is important, and keeping your eye on the budget is something to note. However, the most valuable thing is to make the planning process (and execution) as fun, relaxed and amazing as possible…and me, I get to call this my “job” (wait, what?!)
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a BA in Journalism and PR. Since then, I have intentionally crafted my career around the design, planning and execution of weddings. Aside from being a Wedding Planner, I have lived the vendor side of the industry as a previous Venue Manager and Photography Studio Manager. I already know all details that happen behind the scenes on your wedding day, and like you, I can totally relate to the emotional side of planning your wedding too. I get it, and I'm here for you 100%.
As the Branch Manager of The Simply Elegant Group Denver, I get to oversee all of our clients weddings! Aside from supporting our amazing team of Lead and Expert Planners, I get to be THE biggest cheerleader for all our clients. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
My favorite part of my “job” is watching how everything comes together on your big day. From your initial inquiry, to the big breath before your walk down the aisle, and to every single detail in between; I love it all. It’s like magic to me, and it still gets me every. single. time.
I can’t imagine not being in this industry, truly, and that’s what I want for all of our clients. I want each and every one of you to look back on your wedding day and say, “We couldn’t have imagined it being anything else!”
For that in itself IS magic, and that is exactly how it should be on your wedding day!
Just do you, and I promise, everything will fall into place - exactly as it should.
