Founder and Planner

Creating and running this company is less of a job and more of a love interest for me.  Weddings are my favorite.  Period.  Planning, organizing, and taking care of business is just simply the way I function.  The marriage (excuse the pun) of these two loves is how Details Wedding Planning came to be.  I hear people say often that planning their wedding was "stressful," "overwhelming," and "time-consuming."  While I agree that planning can be time consuming, planning your wedding shouldn't be stressful or overwhelming.  It should be fun, enjoyable, and EXCITING!  That's where I can help.  I'm a certified wedding planner and have experience planning a plethora of weddings, events, and fundraisers.  The things that some find intolerable about weddings, I enjoy.  Hate making phone calls to vendors and negotiating prices?  I don't mind a bit.  The thought of going through and scheduling your big day down to 15 minute increments sound tedious?  It's what makes things flow, and what I call detail oriented.  Ready to get started?  I am.   

A few fun facts:

  • I am the oldest of three girls and grew up in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Virginia

  • I graduated from Clemson University (go Tigers!) with a BA in Communication Studies and from the University of Hawaii at Hilo with a MA in Counseling Psychology 

  • My husband and I chose to make Charlotte our home the summer of 2014 after always loving the city as we traveled through between Davidson and Clemson during our undergraduate years

  • I dated my husband for over 9 years before we finally tied the knot at a Bed and Breakfast venue near our childhood homes

  • I am a dog lover with one CRAZY pup named Tonks... if you have a dog, I'm going to want to see pictures

  • I have to "plan" to be spontaneous 

  • I'm big on making lists

  • I love to travel and have been to 19 countries and 26 US states

  • I have two kiddos:  a spunky and smart threenager, Josie, and an sweet as pie little man who just turned one, Lincoln

Sales, Operations, and Planning

I grew up watching Disney movies, basing my future wedding all around the beautiful princess dresses, the castles, and even having Prince Charming as my husband! Weddings are such an important day, and I am all about making that day “Magical” as Disney would say. I started in the hospitality industry seven years ago working at a restaurant that hosted events like rehearsal dinners, baby showers, and even weddings!  While interning at Disney World, I loved how everyone was there to create a memory, and I feel like that translates directly into weddings.  It’s a day no one is going to forget.  From Disney, I shifted into working at private clubs.  Working in areas from Warren, Ohio to Nantucket, Massachusetts, down to Raleigh, I’m excited to bring event experience from all over the country here to Charlotte.  My standards are high when it comes to planning and organizing. I am big on lists and schedules, and will make sure everything is on time and ready to go so that wedding days run flawlessly. I love talking with people and getting to know them, and I am so excited to meet and work with newly engaged couples. This small town girl from Ohio is ready to plan your wedding in this big, beautiful, southern city of Charlotte.

A few fun facts:

 

  • I grew up in a small town outside of Youngstown, Ohio called Poland

  • I am a middle child and have two brothers. 

  • I graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor's Degree in Human and Consumer Sciences with a focus in Hospitality Management, minors in Business, and Customer Service Leadership, and a certificate in Ecotourism.

  • I am big on sustainability and keeping the Earth beautiful. Any way that I can try to be Eco-Friendly- I will be!

  • I’ve always wanted to live in North Carolina- what’s not to love? The weather is beautiful, close to the beach (compared to Ohio), and I especially love all of the diversity in this state.

  • I am a “foodie” so I love to eat and try new restaurants… I would say my go-to food is Pizza.

  • I used to be a bartender, my favorite drink has to be French Martini.

  • I have a coffee addiction- can’t miss a day without it!

  • I love to travel and meet new people, hopefully we can travel internationally, soon!

  • When we go on vacation I plan out every day, from what time we are eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner, to going out and about to do touristy things.

Wedding Coordinator

My love for event planning started at an early age. Being the oldest of seven cousins on my mom’s side, I frequently found myself in a position of leadership and for some reason, they usually went along with my crazy ideas. I was always asking them to participate in plays, concerts, and any kind of entrepreneurial adventure that popped into my head. I was finally able to use my passion in my career when I landed my first job out of graduate school. I started planning hospitality events surrounding
major sporting competitions including the BCS Championship, Final Four, Super Bowl and Daytona 500.  I feel that my attention to detail, organization and communication contributed to making each of these events a huge success. Shortly after getting to plan and execute events for some of the biggest companies in the
US, I met my husband and eventually got to plan the best event of my life. I was not the girl who planned every little detail of their wedding from a young age but when I finally started, it was like I knew what I wanted all along. I genuinely love learning others love stories – how they met, what they enjoy doing together, their quirks, and the things they love most about each other. My joy is found when every wish of theirs comes true and all that is left are smiles ear to ear at the end of the night!

A few fun facts:

 

  • I grew up in a small town in southern Maine with my mom, dad and younger brother, Ryan.

  • I graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a BS in Business Administration and a Minor in Accounting and from the University of Central Florida with a MS in Business Administration and a MS in Sport Business Management.

  • I moved to Charlotte after graduate school for an internship with a marketing agency and to pursue my dream of working for a NASCAR team, which I now do!

  • My husband’s passion is flying so when we’re not at the lake, we’re flying high in the sky –finding new places to stop for lunch and dreaming of where we will build our next house.

  • Our wedding was full of so many amazing memories but one of my absolute favorites was when we made a HUGE circle on the dance floor and sang “Country Roads” by John Denver (my husband is from West Virginia).

  • One of my most favorite things to do is go to the dentist – I count down the months until I get to go!

  • Taco Tuesday is my favorite night of the week – a good chicken taco with a strawberry margarita is my go to!

Wedding Planner

Not many people can say they followed the career path they picked for themselves as a little kid, but this girl did! From a young age, I dreamed of being a wedding planner. Sure, most girls start thinking about their future wedding pretty early on, but how many of us have wedding timelines and look books at the ripe old age of ten...? (Again, this girl!)  I've been working in the event planning industry for nearly five years and have had the opportunity to coordinate a wide variety of weddings, parties, and conferences throughout the Carolinas. But my love for weddings trumps all other event love! My passion for wedding planning is rooted in my need for organization, eye for design, and the fact that I'm a hopeless romantic. My favorite part of every wedding is the recessional at the end of the ceremony when everyone cheers for the newlyweds! I feel beyond lucky that I get to celebrate so many couples as they commit to doing life together, and that my job allows them to relax and enjoy their big day.

  • I am the oldest of four kids. I have a sister, and two brothers - we're each two years apart! 

  • I'm proud to say I was born and raised here in the Charlotte area. I'm what locals call a "Presby" baby (born at Matthews Presbyterian) - we are pretty rare! 

  • I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a Bachelor's in Marketing and a minor in Psychology

  • I love everything about the Charlotte area! I have been fortunate enough to travel to 8 different countries, but nowhere is quite like the Queen City. There's always something new to see or do, and it's the perfect location for a day trip to either the mountains or the ocean! 

  • My husband and I love board games. We have an ever-growing collection (half of which were given to us as wedding gifts - thank you, Amazon registries), and we love having friends over to our place for game nights! 

  • I am obsessed with my fur babies! I have two sweet pups and an undisclosed number of cats.

  • Besides wedding planning, my other huge passion is music. I took piano lessons for 13 years and still love to play - everything from Mozart to T. Swift. So just in case your musician doesn't show up on your big day (don't worry - they will), I've got you covered! 

  • I love a good taco- especially from this small, family-owned restaurant called La Unica in Indian Trail. 

  • My husband is an architect, so he and I spend a good chunk of our free time on DIY home projects or refinishing furniture.
