Hello to you all,

I hope this year is bringing you as much JOY as it is already bringing me…. and its only January!! I couldn’t do any of the things I am honored to do without the help of so many great people and organizations that support me. I am excited to announce to you that I have received Wedding Wire’s 2013 Bride’s Choice Award. With that said, it is YOU, my fabulous and amazing brides who have awarded me this distinct honor by submitting such great reviews. It is with great humility and gratitude that I share this with you today and want to say a heart felt Thank you for the reviews that you have sent in on my half. I realize that you had many options when making your plans for that most special day and I appreciate the opportunity to be a small part of what will ultimately be marked as one of the most memorable days of your life. I have such a great support system of not only fabulous brides, but family and friends, who have lifted me higher than I ever thought possible. I can’t imagine what the rest of this year has in store as we move through each life changing experience that awaits each of us. Stay tuned for the rest of the story as we move through the seasons together one happy bride at a time!!
