As a child, my favorite color was pink, and I loved doing girly things, like decorating my room and dressing my dolls. On the other hand, I have 3 brothers who taught me to get my hands dirty! I grew up to love mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, scuba diving, and camping. I also spent a lot of time in my mother’s jungle – she’s an avid gardener. (At a young age, this was not a good thing! But I later found myself a gardener as well!) AND every year, for as long as I can remember, I threw an anniversary party for my parents. I have always loved to host parties – my main goal was for them to be FUN and special for the guests of honor.
“I cannot say enough good things about Amy! She was amazing, always smiling, bubbly, organized, and professional.” – Brenda, Bride
I didn’t have a clue where my paradoxical interests would end up landing me. I traveled the world “finding myself” and learning as many new things as I could cram into my head. I lived in Virginia, Australia, Atlanta, Colorado… I earned a degree in business from James Madison University and settled into the corporate software world. It wasn’t until I got married (13 years ago) that I had an epiphany! (Watch my introduction video for the 411 on that experience!) A wedding planner is a must-have! And thus my journey began…
“Amy was an absolute dream to work with!” – Kathryn, Bride
As my knowledge of the industry grew, I realized that not every planner likes to make things pretty. What?!!! I learned that half my passion is designing and there was a reason that I always did the floral arrangements at the parties I threw. The universe was speaking to me!!!
“We selected her after meeting with several other wedding coordinators because of her professionalism, organization, and warm personality.” – Lisa, Bride
Over the years, I’ve become a proud member of the North Carolina State Florists Association, Team Flower, and The Chapel Designers. That’s right, I said CHAPEL DESIGNER. If you don’t know the CDs I encourage you to click here and get your inspiration on. This small yet powerful international group of designers is taking over the flower world. I’m beyond blessed to be a part of it.
“She made me more excited about my wedding with each conversation.” – Amanda, Bride
So to make a long story longer, I have found my calling. I’m obsessed with helping couples have a stress-free and beautiful day. (Read more of my couples’ comments here!) I spend my time playing with my 2 little girls (designers-in-training / flower-girls-for-rent), and looking for new ways to help my couples. I truly look forward to being inspired by all that is you and making your wedding as dazzling as your love!
“It was great to have someone so experienced working with us.” – Kat, Bride
