I love happy people. I am eternally optimistic. Fashion, fabrics, nature, and textures inspire me. I am so happy when my brides hug me after the first glimpse at their wedding reception. Those moments drive me. I adore my husband Tom and our two dogs. I am the fancy “Aunt Ne-Ne” to my even fancier nieces, who are convinced I work with princesses. I was born in Pennsylvania and arrived in my forever home North Carolina by way of Washington, D.C. I love weddings, design and creating romance and gorgeousness for my couples. I look forward to getting to know you and helping to make your wedding day into one of the happiest days of your life!
