As a child, adults inevitably ask you one big question... "What do you want to be when you grow up?" I am sad to say I didn't run around telling everyone "I want to be a wedding planner!" (this would be a much better story if I did!). Like 99.9% of kids in the world, I didn't even know what a wedding planner was. I did, however, proudly exclaim "author and illustrator!"

As I got older, I realized I was better at soaking up the words of others than creating my own. And I definitely, definitely couldn't draw. I still had this deep desire to story tell, but no longer had an outlet... and then I discovered wedding planning.

When I signed up to coordinate my first wedding as an intern, I was swept up in the fact that it married (see what I did there?) my two strongest traits: ridiculous meticulousness and streaks of creativity; two traits which are often opposing, coming together to make something beautiful happen. But, after working that first wedding I realized weddings did something else too... they told a story. I had found my calling.

After years interning in my hometown of Pensacola, FL, I moved to St. Louis, MO with my husband and followed my dream of opening my own wedding planning company. Every day I get to plan, design, and coordinate gorgeous weddings that tell couples' unique love stories and I couldn't imagine a better job. Through my dream job, I am able to make your dream wedding come true, and that’s honestly all I could ever ask for.

When I'm not working, you will probably find this homebody snuggled up at home with my husband and my pup. My interests are vast and I am uniquely passionate about nearly everything. I get easily excited about every single topic and could talk about music, movies, books, and weddings for forever. Some things I love include:

  • collecting quotes like others collect stamps

  • binge-watching television, because waiting a week in between episodes is the worst

  • re-reading the same book a dozen times before ever starting a new book on my ever growing TBR list

  • travelling and hiking, although I rarely find the time

  • completing crosswords in pen, just like my father

  • finding reasons to make excel spreadsheets

  • napping on the couch with my pup cuddled on my lap

It’s taken me a few weeks to find the words to properly describe how truly amazing Danie is. Hiring her was by far the best decision I ever made in my wedding planning process! She is so caring and sincere and super organized! If Danie thought something wasn’t being handled in the most professional way I knew not to worry because I had her in my corner. She was there for me every step of the way and allowed me to relax and enjoy everything. Danie constantly checked in with me and my husband to keep us on schedule while juggling all of the vendors on the day of our wedding. To say Danie is the most professional, hands on, top notch wedding consultant is an understatement. I cannot thank her enough for all that she did for me to help make my wedding day absolutely perfect.
