    My mother will tell you I have always been in love with ‘The Big Beautiful White Dress;’ so she was not surprised when I became a Bridal Specialist at a salon in the city and an intern with LOLA Event Productions. I am grateful, but secretly disappointed, she couldn’t find the pictures of me in it! When I started my internship with LOLA, I knew right away that I wanted to be a part of as many weddings and events as possible. Then working as an assistant, I gained even more valuable experience alongside the LOLA team on events all over the city and found my voice as a coordinator. After three years with the company, I was ecstatic to have an opportunity to work with my own clients and make their visions a reality.

    I thrive on paying attention to the details so my couples can enjoy their entire experience. I want to go above and beyond to make sure each couple has one of the best days of their lives from beginning to end. I find beauty in everything, and I cannot wait to help my clients incorporate their personal style into their wedding memories.

    Before joining the LOLA team, I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Leadership Communication. After graduation, I saved enough to live in Paris for three months and I cannot wait to get back to the ‘City of Love,’ which has creatively influenced me in many ways. Closer to home, I am a lover of all animals so this year I set out to volunteer with animal shelters in our great city. Now, my dog Lulu isn’t the only spoiled pup. I love reading a good book (Jane Eyre is by far my favorite novel, because “Reader, I married him.”) and spending time with friends and family.
