Originally from England, I've established my career and made my life in and around Richmond, Virginia over the past 20 years. I earned a degree in Information Systems but after working in that industry for a while I had an opportunity to open and run a flower shop. I quickly realized that this was a better fit for me and found a passion for the wedding side of the business. I took that experience and transitioned it into a position with the Historic Five Star Five Diamond Jefferson Hotel, where I spent ten years as an event manager and wedding coordinator. Along the way I've had the good fortune of being able to partner with some of the finest wedding vendors in the Richmond area.

I take on every event as if it were my own, using that passion to create a magical day for you and your guests. Elite service is the primary focus for my clients and me.
