Wedding Highlight – Erin and Grant

Erin and Grant’s wedding day was incredibly special for me to plan. I’ve known Erin since she was a little girl. Her mom, Carol, was my first boss here in Indianapolis in the event industry. She helped me get into wedding planning and watched my career grow and flourish. Interestingly, as a corporate event planner, Carol doesn’t know (or enjoy) wedding planning, so she said from the onset, “this task is yours, we trust you entirely because we don’t know […]

Wedding Highlight – Erica and Grant

Their wedding ceremony was hosted in the century old Columbia Club as family and friends watched from both the Lobby level and the balcony above.     Grant and Erica were surrounded by lush flowers (jaw dropping!) and a bridal party wearing gold looked like beautiful Grecian Goddesses. Their service included grandparents reading Biblical passages and really whimsical musical choices.  (I LOVE when couples include personal music!)  In their case they used Beyoncé and Kanye.  Kanye actually was to honor […]

Wedding Highlight – Christine & Ryan

Every once in a while as a planner you hit the client jackpot. So let me just say, JACKPOT!!! I cannot even begin to describe the amount of love I have for Christine,  Ryan and both of their families. There is something them, that when you instantly feel welcomed as a member of the family the moment you meet. From the moment I met Terri, Christine’s mom, (in a thunder storm of Biblical proportions) I thought “This woman is so […]

Oh I love a winter wedding!  While the outside may be clear, crisp and cold, there is nothing like warming up to the warmth and intimacy of a wonderful candlelit wedding celebration!  Maggie and Andrew had exactly that idea in mind for their wedding when they came me for their January wedding and I was so excited to help them plan their big day! Maggie and Andrew actually met (literally) on their way to  Italy on a trip, so their […]

Wedding Highlight – Kate & Brad

The wedding of Kate and Brad was stylish, uptown and chic — just like the couple themselves.  Somehow this wedding – bursting at nearly 400 guests felt like a small dinner party because Kate and Brad took the time to ensure each intimate detail was carefully crafted and cultivated.  It was an honor to help them create this splendid occasion!! Kate and Brad were married and the breathtaking Sacred Heart Catholic Church just south of downtown Indy.  The architecture of this […]

Wedding Highlight – Brittney & Conor

As wedding season begins to wind down, and I reflect on my 2015 weddings, the wedding of Brittney and Conor resonates with me not only as a highlight of the year, but likely of my career.  Brittney, Conor and their families are kind, outgoing, warm and entirely trusting — and oooohhh – they know how to celebrate!  After dating since middle school, these life-long lovers tied the knot in bold style – and shared their weekend with vibrant color, whimsical […]

Forty Under 40

I am entirely overwhelmed by outpouring and response from the Indianapolis Business Journal’s inclusion of me in their 2015 Class of Forty Under 40. For over 20 years the newspaper has put together a collection of our city’s business leaders and stars in a variety of fields from medicine and law, to politics and finance.  Typically there are a few sports figures or celebrities included as well.  Very rarely is someone from  the event industry included, and never before has […]
