Lead Designer (MBA, iMSIT, IEWP)

My passion….creating and designing breathtaking, magical, amazing and just damn awesome ambiances for couple’s special day. With over 500 wedding spaces transformed in the last few years, I fall more in love with what I do.

I am an incurable romantic. That perfectly sums me up. I truly enjoy working with couples and love when they tell me stories about how they met, fell in love and all that mushy gushy stuff. Yes, my secret pleasure is all about love and relationships. That’s why it’s so easy for me to be as excited about your special day.

Been able to turn my passion into a full-time gig, I am truly thankful.A very simple girl with a big heart, as such, when working with brides, I often take on the role of event planner and become the voice of comfort that calms and reassures them along the way. On a personal note, I have made developed many friendships that I value very much while working with couples over the months leading up to their special day.

I feel quite fortunate for the opportunity to help create unforgettable memories in this province of unparalleled beauty that I am privileged to call home.

Today, as a true romantic at heart, I have a passion for designing and creating a beautiful ambiance as a background for celebrating your love and romance in one of the most joyous occasions … your wedding!

When not busy designing and styling weddings, you can find me coaching little league basketball or enjoying a game at Dalhousie with the “Halifax Plays” basketball league.
