meet your planner

I remember what it was like being in your shoes - happily engaged and planning the wedding of your dreams.  What an exciting time!  Although I'm happily married, I still wish I could go back and relive my wedding day (I'm sure you've already heard, but it will go by way too fast!).  Being a bride myself, I know how stressful wedding planning can be! I LOVED using a wedding planner for our big day, and I'm excited to offer you the same freedom.

Beyond my talent and appreciation for logistics and design, as your wedding planner, I will focus on ensuring you are able to truly soak up each and every moment of your big day so you are free to create the most joyful, beautiful, and treasured moments to last a lifetime.  There are approximately 5,000 details for every wedding, and it's my joy and privilege to take on the responsibility of planning, sorting out, and executing each and every one of those details for you.  I'll also share with you all the tips and tricks I have acquired through my experience as a Certified Wedding Planner as well as things I wish I knew as a bride (like breaking in those wedding shoes BEFORE your wedding day and having food sent with you to snack on after the reception - trust me).

I have always valued meaningful and authentic relationships, and my clients are no exception to that.  Entrusting me with your wedding is something I treat with the utmost importance, and I can't wait to help bring your vision for your big day to life, even if you don't know what that vision is yet.

As college sweethearts, Michael and I were married on July 7th, 2017.  We met on a study abroad trip to Monterrey, Mexico where we were working with Back2Back Ministries, a non-profit Christian organization that focuses on serving orphaned and vulnerable children.  When we were just getting to know each other at the beginning of the trip, me (being obsessed with all things wedding-related), asked Michael and several other guys on the trip if they ever thought about their future wedding like girls thought about it.  Michael, to my surprise, replied that he knew exactly how he would propose to his wife - on a mountain top in Vail, CO right around Christmas time.  Well, this is exactly how he did propose, and it was the easiest "Yes" I've ever given. 

Being married is simply the best, and I'm so excited for you as you step into this new chapter of your lives as one!

One of the greatest joys in my life is being a mother.  Michael and I welcomed our daughter, Genesis Joyce, into the world on December 1st, 2020, and we haven't stopped smiling since!  To say we are completely in love wouldn't even begin to cover it.  Genna is always dressed to the nines with her coordinating headband bows and loves matching her mommy with all things cheetah print (okay, so maybe her mom is the one who really loves it).
We have absolutely loved every moment with her and can't wait to watch her grow.

Before I was a real mom, I was a dog mom!  Pumba (back) is a rescue from St. Maarten.  He is totally a "Momma's Boy" and has already become a protective older brother to Genesis.  Timona (front) is a Belgian Malinois who is too smart for her own good.  In our free time, Michael and I love taking our pups for a walk through all of our favorite local Indy places.  My husband is currently studying at Butler University (Go Bulldogs!) to receive his MBA, so when he's not working full-time as an engineer or taking night classes, we love walking through campus, which is conveniently just a stone's throw away!
Have a dog of your own?  There are many ways to incorporate your four-legged friend on your big day!

creating joyful (and stress-free) moments

Ever since my days of wearing matching cheetah print pajamas with my mom, I have always been obsessed with cheetah print.  From my phone case and Apple watch band to an accent nail on each hand and an entire section in my closet, the chances of me having cheetah print on somewhere when you see me are very high (and I'm not even a mathematician).  If you're a fellow cheetah print lover, you can fully expect us to recreate the scene out of Step Brothers when we notice we're cheetah sisters ("Did we just become best friends? YUP!)

Michael and I met our senior year of college at Miami University (OH).  We were on a study abroad trip that partnered with Back2Back Ministries to serve orphan children and their families.  One of the first comments Michael, an introvert, made about me, an extrovert voted "Most Outgoing" of my HS senior class, was, "She's going to be the most annoying girl on the trip."  Oh, how first impressions can be wrong!  What really ended up drawing us together was intentional conversations, LOTS of ConnectFour, and God's unexpected plan.

The Meeting

In Monterrey before we were interested in each other, I asked Michael and other guys if they ever thought about their dream wedding like girls do (clearly, I love weddings).  Most said some version of "Definitely not", but Michael said he knew how he was going to propose - around Christmas at the top of a mountain in Vail, CO.  I thought this was CRAZY and said, "How can you know how you're going to propose?  You don't even know who your wife will be yet."  Well, that's exactly how he proposed 11 months later - on Christmas Eve at the top of a mountain in Vail, CO.  God has quite the sense of humor.

The Proposal

Like I said before, your wedding day will FLY by, and oh, how I wish I could go back to mine.  It was the most perfect July day (besides when there was a full on torrential downpour during our *thankfully indoor* ceremony) surrounded by our beautiful family and friends.  From our intentional vows we made to the surprise Michael Jackson dance with my bridesmaids, our day was us and I loved every second of it. The day went by in the blink of an eye as has every day since we said, "I do".  My heart was not prepared for how much more I would love Michael after growing as individuals and couples since then, and I'm so thankful for the adventure we are and will continue to be on.

The Wedding

I was SO not prepared for how my heart would quadruple in size after becoming a mom.  On December 1, 2020, Michael and I welcomed our beautiful daughter, Genesis Joyce into the world.  She truly is a gift from God, and we are so thankful to have been chosen to be her parents.  She sure has her mommy's personality, so we are doomed.  All kidding aside, I'm so thankful planning weddings for my CJM couples allows me to stay home with our little nugget because let's be real, the baby snuggles and kisses are the BEST!!

HIRING A WEDDING PLANNER:

AS A BRIDE MYSELF, HERE'S WHY I

Getting married already comes with its own set of nerves!  Because we hired a wedding planner, I was able to fully enjoy the season of being engaged without the added stress of planning and executing our wedding.
I'm thrilled to be able to offer you the same luxury so you and your loved one can truly enjoy being engaged!

LESS STRESS BEFORE WEDDING DAY

Reason #1

When you wake up on your wedding day, the first thing you should think is, "I get married today!" not "Did I remember to tell the ceremony musicians what time to arrive?!"  Your wedding day doesn't just start once you're walking down the aisle - it starts the moment you wake up!  You deserve to be fully present while you have a mimosa toast (or two) with your bridesmaids before you say, "I do!"

BEING FULLY PRESENT THE DAY OF

Reason #2

There are roughly 5,000 details for every wedding (yes, you read that correctly).  That's a lot to worry about!  Hiring a wedding planner ensures there is not one forgotten detail.  From double checking you ordered the correct number of bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres for the bridal party and family members to coordinating what time vendors will arrive on the big day, I will have you covered, just like my wedding planner did for me.

NOT WORRYING ABOUT THE DETAILS

Reason #3

It's no secret that weddings cost money.  Having an expert behind all your decisions and purchases will save you money in the long run.  As my client, you will have access to my Budget Calculator Spreadsheet, which divides your total budget across all vendors based on the average cost for each.  It can also be adjusted depending on if you want to spend more or less on a particular vendor.  I am happy to be your person who will always look out for your budget so you don't have to!

HELP WITH STICKING TO BUDGET

Reason #4

Whether you're envisioning a glamorous wedding in a beautiful ballroom or a minimalist backyard reception, I will help turn your vision of your wedding day into your reality!  From the centerpieces, linens, and place settings to the lighting, aisle decor, and sweets table, we will have a blast bringing your vision to life.  When I look back on my wedding day, I am just as in love with every detail as I was then, and as your planner, I will make sure the same is true for you.

BRINGING VISION TO LIFE
