Turning a Vision

into Reality

I have always dreamed about being an event planner, even from a young age, I knew I was destined for this line of work. For the last year, I have made the dreams of over a dozen brides come true, and I hope to bring that same success to Washington. Whether you are a bride planning that special day, or a loved one looking to surprise your special someone with an engagement, my only goal is to help make your vision a reality.
