Few people can say they met their future spouse at Indiana University’s Little 500 week long festivities.  I can say that.  Add Grace and Graham to the list.  The minute I met them and they told me that, I knew we were destined to work together on their upscale Hoosier Homecoming wedding celebration! Our similarities didn’t stop there!  Grace’s mom, Debbie, and I share a birthday – what’s not to love about us Leos right 😉 , as a child […]

Wedding Highlight – Abby and Matt

Abby and Matt, along with their families, are such warm and gracious people!  They wanted their day to be filled with beautiful flowers, family tradition and great food — they had it all! When Matt proposed Abby’s parents immediately took them to Meridian Hills Country Club for a glass of celebratory champagne.  The Club has long held a place of family tradition and celebration, so hosting the wedding reception there seemed natural.  It was the perfect location for their early […]

“Why We Didn’t Hire a Wedding Planner … but Wish We Had” – she’s smart – NOW!

Recently Huffington Post had a wedding blog titled  “Why We Didn’t Hire a Wedding Planner… but Wish We Had” which I posted on my facebook page.  It was brilliantly written.  It had several great points.  It was smart.  It was insightful.  It was perfect. At an industry luncheon a videographer joked “You’ve been published lately, did you ghost write it?”  I replied – “If I am going to something that’s going to be picked up by Huntington Post, I want […]

Wedding Highlight – Lauren and Tom

Lauren and Tom wanted their summer wedding to have a French provincial warmth to their farm wedding, and undoubtedly they achieved this. They have impeccable taste and it shows in every detail; whether it be the clothes they wear, the stores where they shop, or the vacations they take – naturally their wedding was going to be rich in detail, charm and beauty. Just like the two of them. After meeting at Yale during a freshmen picnic for athletes, the […]

Wedding Highlight – Sara and Curtis

Sara and Curtis have known one another forever!  It’s impossible to see a photo of one without the other.   They actually went to the  same elementary school!  A mere 2 weeks before their wedding, they were finally in the same city as each other having survived a 4 year  long-distance relationship because of attending different colleges.   As often as possible one would travel to the other school for football games or mini-vacations.  One semester they even both traveled  to […]

Wedding Rewind

I’m lucky.  I get it.  I get to help couples and families plan an incredible celebration and share in special, intimate moments.  I get to see private, quiet moments with wonderful people.  I get to see things few people get to see, and I get to share in these quiet prayers, whispered conversations and silly conversations just before a bride walks down the aisle with her father and I am humbled to be present in the moment.  I’m not immune […]

Art of the Table – inTENsity

Every year, one of the first signs of spring is the Association of Bridal Consultants Annual Art of the Table.  Now celebrating its 10th Anniversary, this event is a culmination of design, decor and distinctive tablescapes put together by Indiana’s elite planners, designers, florists and event professionals. I’ve long called this celebration of beautiful tablescapes “My Favorite Day of the Year” because of the amazing over-the-top tables and the sense of collaboration between the designers.  This year, it was actually […]

Wedding Highlight – Kristen and Tim

Every once in a while as a wedding planner, you get a client who just allows you to run!  This time I got to run in circles  (..and I didn’t mind)  😉 Tim and Kristen were finishing their Masters degrees at Notre Dame when she and I met with her mom for lunch the day before Christmas Eve when I said, “I have an idea…” with a grin across my face.  She said “run with it.” Finally – after having […]
