I first dipped my toe into weddings, professionally as a bridal stylist at a wedding dress boutique! However, I like to say, I am the professional Maid of Honor amongst my friends, as you’ll find me lugging around an Ikea bag size emergency kit, in my floor length chiffon dress for all of them. You best believe there will not be a wrinkle in sight nor a blistered heel unbandaged on my watch!
Furthermore, I was crowned the prestigious title of Chaos Coordinator by my future sister-in-law for my brother’s wedding in 2020. And, trust me, there was no chaos at that pandemic wedding! It was in that moment I knew I could no longer hide the light of my gifts and I had to share them with the world.
My title of Chaos Coordinator first really shined through with LOLA when I was assisting a wedding the weekend of the Air and Water show. We had a wedding at Theater on the Lake and all east bound streets to get there were completely blocked off. But of course, we had to get through to the venue to set up the reception! After passing multiple exits and being told no one could not get through, I brought out my most authoritative Wedding Planner voice and was able to secure a police escort who moved multiple water truck barricades to allow us to reach the venue and set up the reception in time! All to say, I will do everything in my power to move mountains (or water trucks) for you to keep things running smoothly.
Outside of LOLA I am a Project Manager for a marketing agency. As a project manager, I have learned the art of running a tight ship and a tight schedule. You may experience me whipping out my fancy Excel pivot table skills on your guest list to make sure there is not a vegetarian out of place or unaccounted for.
In my spare time you can find me:
My favorite part of every wedding is that each wedding has “THAT MOMENT.” Sometimes it is the first look, others as they lock eyes as the bride walks down the aisle or as a couple walk closely arm in arm to have a private moment after the ceremony, or even as they dance to their favorite song from when they first met in college on the dance floor of their reception… In that moment, you can see in their eyes, they know they chose their person. That is what this is all about!
