Hi There

I'm Kristin!


I was a third grade teacher for 12 years. I first realized I was in the wrong profession while planning my own wedding. Dreaming up the day and then putting it together was SO much more fun than I ever could have imagined.

Five years and a rambunctious three year old later, 

I decided not to go back to my teaching career and follow my dream of assisting others in creating their perfect day.

While I loved teaching, nothing quite fills my heart the way planning and executing a special gathering does. After all the decorating is done, the toasts have been made, the cake has been cut & my clients tell me how much fun they've had...

I know my job is done & my heart could explode.
