I’m a former event curator for corporate America, who after getting married and raising three kids - turned to wedding coordination and event planning. Years later, I run a small team of planners and coordinators, who help brides feel at ease in the plans they’ve made for their big day.
I started my work in corporate America helping to plan and coordinate events for some big names in the technology and restaurant space.
But like many of us - I’ve always thought that love is our greatest endeavor.
So when the time came for me to marry my best friend and raise two young children - I jumped in full-force (which is basically the way I do everything else in life - full of energy and unafraid).
With two small children and a budding love for wedding and event planning, I started working closely with a successful wedding planner in the area - all the while daydreaming about starting my own business. (I really wish I could dig up those brochures I doodled wayback when). But life happened again - and we welcomed our daughter Sarah into the world.
And a new baby meant those wild business plans went on the backburner.
Through meeting the one, deciding its forever, and planning your wedding day and life together - its an enormous feat. In a world where couples can call it quits so easily - we believe in couples that work hard every day to make it through.
Marriage and building a life together is one of the hardest and best things I’ve ever accomplished.
I truly believe every moment of our life lives in a season - and it was thanks to my son that he reminded me this new season could be all my own. (He’s my biggest cheerleader, even if my daughter did cheer for 16 years).
With three children (that are now all young adults) it came time for me to refocus on my passions - and starting that wedding and event planning business seemed like the only avenue.
Three years later I manage a small team of expert wedding planners helping to achieve dreams for Hudson Valley Brides.
I believe in taking ownership - in life, love, and business, and that’s why our team loves embracing your special day with you. You’ve made the plans - but we manage them like it’s our special day to remember forever. We take ownership of the recommendations we give, the plans we help arrange, and the happiness of you and your loved ones.
