Fourteen years ago I had the dream of owning my own wedding planning business and taking over the wedding industry in my hometown. With a lot of determination, support from my fam and luck, I started my business when I was just 23. Now, we are a successful, six-figure wedding planning business executing 30-40 weddings a year with a team made up of 10 employees.
In the first six years of having my business, I balanced life, the biz and a very demanding full-time job! I look back now and have no idea how I did it, but somehow I mustered up the energy each day to do it.
When I went full-time with the biz, I dreamed of having the flexibility again to have a personal life, working a little less and making more money. I only got 1 of those 3, more money. It took me over 2 years to figure out the systems that needed to be in place to give me back my life and now I want to share them with YOU!

Simply put, the wedding industry is tough ya'll! And if you aren't careful, it can consume you. Our hours are nights,weekends and days. Our clients typically can only chat with us at their convenience. And if you aren't quick to respond these days, you lose that potential client super quickly.
If you are like I was, you are probably hearing all the cheers from the sidelines but inside your screaming, praying for the day you can be in yoga pants with an oversized t-shirt on with a latte in hand being the boss lady that you know you are meant to be. <- my life everyday! You're also probably wishing you could spend time with your fam, take on less weddings and make more money too.
The struggle is real, but i'm here to help!
I understand the struggles
and it's real ya'll!
