“She went above and beyond in every way during my wedding in Santa Fe in August. She will have every detail that is important to you in her brain day of, and make sure that it happens precisely as you want it to happen. She will solve problems before they even get to you. She will be a shepherd to you and your spouse on your big day – not pushy, but not a pushover. There in exactly the way you need her. She knows her craft, and she executes like the expert she is. She is worth every single penny and more. She has a calming, but kickass presence that will complement you in whatever way your personality type needs.” -Mirage

I have been coordinating & helping create custom & classy weddings with a calm & confident presence for over seven years. I have loved on all my 150+ amazing couples and I average getting to know about 30 more every year. I love translating the needs of my couples to their wedding pros and have a passion for great communication.
I jumped head first into the wedding industry when I realized many planners were placing quantity over quality. I didn’t see actions that proved they were placing their clients first. I live to stand apart. My mission is to prove that wedding planning and coordination can be done differently, without an agenda. I conduct myself with wholeheartedness, humility, and honesty.
I strive to collaborate with my couples and ensure their weddings are smoothly executed: caring about every detail individually, but also paying attention to the ambiance of the whole shebang! My belief is that every couple and family deserves to have a more peaceful planning experience, and be excited about this stressful project!! I have fun getting to know people and I LOVE what I do. My work has a heart & soul. It’s meaningful because it brings peace and reliability to the crazy process surrounding a special and sacred moment.
