Where's your office?
We currently run the business from my home where I am blessed to have a office and a spare bedroom that I am using to currently store our growing inventory of event d�cor

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
The toughest part of running my business is getting noticed by new clients. Getting new leads and fostering past relationships. I am pulled in many different directions as a owner and I try to keep all the plates spinning.

What's the most fun part?
The day of the event when I see the satisfaction on my client's face as months of hard work has come alive.

Anything you would have done differently?
No! I love the stress, the joy and the tears of the entire show. Every time.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
We have been blessed with very generous clients and would like to start to give back. We want to help pave the way for young planner starting out in the field and offer mentoring programs and foster events for interns to work to get real world experience.

What advice do you have for others?
Don't give up! No matter what

Favorite Food?

What are your pets' names?

Do any of these pets help with your biz?

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
My own wedding was very cookie cutter and not very personalized to the style of my new spouse and I. I wanted to do this so brides everywhere can know that you don't have to spend a million to get the wedding that you see in the magazines.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
My best friend Shandreika Fuller. Who gave me this business and always rooted for me to win.
