Fun | Professional | Dependable


Nine years ago, My mum and I planned an unforgettable 500 guest wedding!

As the firstborn this would be the first wedding in the family, the last thing we wanted was a disorganized, and boring wedding.
During the planning process we quickly realized the time and effort required to put everything in place.  

Letting my family know meticulous, planning early on was crucial to putting together a seamless fun and memorable wedding was crucial.
