Creating Your Dream is My Dream

Creating your dream wedding or event is exactly the dream I have had for years.

It all started when I planned my own wedding to my husband Ryan 20 years ago.


Ryan and I on our big day!

For some planning a wedding can be an overwhelming and even frustrating experience. I felt completely the opposite!


We said "I Do!"


I fell in love with every aspect of planning my wedding from flowers and food to dress and photographer. I truly enjoy taking a wedding from the planning stages to the “I do.”



One of the happiest days of my life!

Most brides have a vision for what they want their weddings to be. The tricky part is getting your vision to come to life. And that’s what I love! I can think creatively to bring whatever idea you have in your head to reality. This allows you to not only relax and enjoy the planning process, but fully enjoy your Big Day as well.

While my business is new, I have been planning weddings and events for family and friends since my own wedding. I truly loved it so much that I decided to take a leap of faith and turn my love of planning and weddings into a business. I feel God is showing me I have a story to share of overcoming fear and doubt. I believe that everything I have done in my life has led me to this time and this business. I believe that is true for all of us. You can accomplish big dreams and goals with small daily choices that will lead you right where you are supposed to be. Then you are given a moment when you can say YES! I decided to start Happily Ever afTer by faith that I was supposed to follow my God-given gift.

What does this mean for you when you choose me to help plan your wedding or event? It means I am passionate about what I do. Your wedding is important to me. Your event is important to me. To this day one of my favorite parts of planning a wedding is the moment I prepare the bride to walk down the aisle (and most importantly on time). The excitement never leaves me after all these years.



Happily Ever afTer!


So let me handle the details so you can enjoy this wonderful time in your life. Weddings and events are supposed to be fun! Let me worry about the details and adjust to any hiccups in the day. You enjoy your day, enjoy your guests and make memories that will last a lifetime.

A love of weddings and events plus a knack for details is the perfect combination for a Happily Ever afTer day!
