Making Dreams Come True

They said “Go Big or Go Home” and well I ran away from home!

After owning a historic venue in the PNW I packed up all my favorite things and headed to The South just after the Crash of 2008. I looked around the country to try and find my perfect fit… you see New York was too “Tough”, LA was too “Big”, Scottsdale was too “Old” … and then I found Atlanta. On the roof top of Stats Bar & Grill overlooking the Atlanta Skyline sipping champagne I said to myself (the proverbial small town girl)  I CAN DO THIS! 

 

I am a self proclaimed Georgia Peach who lives in the Pacific Northwest high in the mountains surrounded by gorgeous lakes and 100 year old pine trees. Atlanta embraced me, molded me, and shaped me. It helped me gain not only incredible real life event experiences like March Madness Final Four Events, Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, and private events on New Years Eve during the Chick fil’A Bowl and the Peach Drop with celebrities such as Ludacris, T.I., Michael Ealy, and the Real Housewives of Atlanta. But it also allowed me to produce some of the most amazing multi-day southern wedding celebrations of my career. 

 

Yes, I whole heartily love love love what I do!

I am truly blessed I found a career that never feels like a job. To have my passion recognized by both my clients and the beautiful live event industry I work in is a dream come true for me.

Understanding my client’s goals and priorities helps me to create the celebration of their dreams that perfectly suites a unique style and personality that can only be captured through personal attention to details.

 

For over 20 years now, I have treasured every opportunity I’ve had to work with so many clients throughout the years creating unforgettable events that last a life time.

Creating Beauty

An ambitious girl, with a creative soul and a sassy demeanor! Married to my college sweetheart I started my career in the corporate world, this built my talents in logistics and details but I had a desire to explore my creative side and decided to start my own event business. Being my own boss was natural but it was a big responsibility.

While growing in the event industry I met Sarah and we were instantly friends. people could say we were competitors but we never saw it that way, we were strong woman who side by side grew our own success in the event world. While taking different directions we found our way back to a place wanting to work together. It was an easy decision to unit our talents and for me to join SAS Celebrations as Principal Designer.

 

My heart is in design. My passion for creating for people makes me happy.  I believe we are meant to celebrate life’s moments, and designing an event for any occasion allows me to tell a story to guests and I feel pure joy in the moments that leave forever memories.

Bringing Order to Chaos

I also have been truly blessed to find something that is enjoyable to me and allows me the freedom and flexibility with my family.

10 years ago I thought it would be fun to be an event planner and now here I am getting to work with such amazing couples to execute their wedding dreams. I thrive on swooping in on Wedding day bringing Order to Chaos.

 

Being mindful of different personalities and schedules allows me the opportunity to plan  virtually across the country (as long as we have internet and a cell phone). And now also being back in my home town of Indy to grow the wedding market here is really a dream come true.
