UNcurated: the evolution of a wedding planner

I wrote this love letter, of sorts, to my career, in the wake of the impact of COVID-19 on the event industry. With the realization that things will look very different on the other side of this crisis, I felt the need to grieve what has been a cornerstone of my identity. So I wrote.Continue reading “UNcurated: the evolution of a wedding planner”

the other side of the filter: my girls

  Do you ever look at social media and feel like your life isn’t as pulled together or as beautiful as it should be? I love a pretty Instagram post as much as the next gal, but sometimes I start to look at my surroundings and question myself. I’m sure that I’m guilty of theContinue reading “the other side of the filter: my girls”

scheduling balance

  I am OBSESSED with my new Rifle Paper Co. calendar that just arrived today! Pretty things that also facilitate organization… I mean! Heart eyes for days (literally days, because we’re talking about a calendar).  I’m sometimes a little too type A for my own good and for the good of the people who have toContinue reading “scheduling balance”

mother, wife, wedding planner…

It’s been fun watching how social media has evolved over the years and how it has changed the way that we communicate and connect.
