years with the company?
what do you specialize in?
Wedding planning, coordinating, and designing
what is your favorite thing about the event industry?
I love being part of the different wedding ceremonies. I love when the bride makes her way into the wedding ceremony; that moment, to me, is very magical.
describe your favorite collaboration with colonial events.
I have done too many amazing events with Colonial; I don't have just one favorite. But one is when The Henry ballroom was first renovated, we created a yellow mandap for a client. We were all not sure about the color since it was so bold, but that color looked stunning in the new ballroom. Another moment was creating a full crystal ceiling with crystal panels, chandeliers, and lighting this past fall at Suburban Showplace - which was also another show stopper!
if you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you bring?
My phone, a lip balm, and a boat because I will eventually get bored and need to hit the mall.
what would you do if you were invisible for a day?
I would definitely play some tricks on people and scare the shit out of people.
what's your biggest pet peeve?
who would play you in the movie of your life?
