Best “quirk” as a kid that carries with me today:
I used to organize everything, anywhere I would go.
My mom worked in a doctor’s office where I would repeatedly re-arrange all the magazines in the waiting room. To this day I am an extremely organized person. I actually take pleasure in finding spaces to organize.
Favorite song: “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz.
It was our wedding song, and will always hold a special place in my heart.
Favorite quote: "Because when you stop and look around - this life is pretty amazing" - Dr. Seuss
Favorite Event Detail:
My favorite wedding detail is any touch, big or small, that truly reflects something unique the couple share. This can be tables named after their favorite movies, a bouquet that includes flowers remembered from their first date, or wedding favors that reflect the couple’s favorite treats.

Favorite quote: “Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that made you smile.”
Favorite event detail: I love the the centerpieces in the reception. Even though guests truly don’t pay attention to what is at the center of the tables, it is one detail that stands out to me any where I go. Sometimes the simplest centerpieces are the most beautiful.
