Who We Are

about

I have been working as a planner since I was a Freshman in college - I fell in love with this fast paced and ever-changing industry and never looked back! I'm an avid reader, always have a podcast playing, use too many exclamation points in my emails, and love to go on runs and walks through my Saint Paul neighborhood.

Over the years I have seen how stressful this new season of life can be for my couples. I promise, you do not need to be an expert to have a beautiful and joy filled wedding day - hiring a planner will help to relieve that stress! I am huge on educating my clients so that you are able to make the choice that feels right to YOU on your wedding day. I find true happiness in serving my couples so they are able to enjoy their day with their family and friends - and would love to work with you! Let's chat all things weddings over a glass of wine, a cup of coffee, or in my case an earl gray tea!

Playing a role in one of the most special days in a couple's life is why I love weddings! I absolutely love being part of the beginning moments of their new life together and all of the small details that make each wedding unique and personal! I have had so much fun being a part of the Joyful Day Team from the beginning and can't wait to see all of the new couples that we get to celebrate over the coming seasons! Thankfully, most weddings are on Saturdays, because I am passionate Football Fan (SKOL VIKES), and enneagram type 3 to the core who is always up for trying a new red wine, preferably on a great fall day with a roaring fire! 

I discovered my passion for wedding planning after attending 12 weddings in one year (and many after that) and planning my own wedding just last year. Ever since I can remember, I have had a healthy obsession with organizing and to do lists. My top level communication skills coupled with my attention to detail will ensure that your entire planning process and wedding day will be executed flawlessly. I thrive in a fast-paced atmosphere and am highly motivated by a new challenge. So, let's make it happen!

I love to make people happy… especially on their happiest day. From sending a bride down the aisle (usually with tears; I am a crier!) to setting escort cards, I love everything about a wedding day. Most of my friends would describe me as a hopeless romantic with a keen eye for design. Being able to help a couple’s dream day become reality is exactly why I became a part of this team at JDW!
