wedding planning guru
Helping couples deal with multiple personalities and opinions,
to stay on track to design the wedding you’ve always imagined.
I’m here to help make your wedding planning journey as fun and fulfilling as you heard it should be – to prevent burnout, tears, or breaking down and chugging a bottle of wine locked in your closet. Yeah, that really happened.
Together, we develop a custom wedding planning blueprint that makes you more efficient, able to cope with all the things, and pleasing your families. So couples have their own styles, budgets, guest lists, and tastes reflected, and deal with unsolicted advice.
My journey started here way back when…
At the tender age of 10, I worked my first wedding. I was hired as a catering assistant by my best friend’s mother. After only one event, I was hooked despite working long hours on a precious Saturday!
Then a bit of a situation arose…there was this photographer, I was in my early 20’s and it was my first time planning a wedding for a close friend.
A photographer she met seemed legit – he had a huge studio, professional portfolio, and a big ad in the Yellow Pages (yup, I’ve been around that long!). He was polite and responsive, so she trusted him. We met him at his studio and he didn’t seem salesy. Videography was added to her package after he persuaded my bride.
On the wedding day, he showed up with his videographer, ate the vendor meal, took pictures then, but didn’t deliver any photos or a video as promised. He closed his studio, ceased appearing in court, and left town without a trace. My friends were cheated out of thousands of dollars as well as cherished wedding memories. They were devastated. Such drama can overwhelm a new marriage.
Can you believe it?
After 25 years as a luxury wedding planner in Washington D.C. I figured out…
It takes more than creating a killer Pinterest board & binging on SYTTD to seamlessly produce a multi-thousand dollar celebration.
In fact, the most crucial decisions are made between saying “Yes!” to getting down the aisle to say “I, do”.
Important ideas about where to host your wedding ceremony and reception, which vendors to hire, and how much to spend are critical to the success of your wedding day. Nevertheless, not every couple can afford to hire a full-service wedding planner.
While a “Day of” wedding coordinator helps tie up loose ends weeks before your big day, you are left struggling to navigate through the planning process alone and are more likely to make costly rookie mistakes.
Therefore, I came up with a solution. In 2015, I founded Keep Calm And Wed On, a virtual wedding planning service that leverages my catering expertise, experience working with hotels, venues, and wedding vendors to teach couples how to plan a wedding, identify red flags, and hire the best creative partners without breaking the bank and overcome the overwhelm of pre-wedding anxiety.
things I love….

Travel the world with industry friends
Weddings at destination locations take you all over the world and offer you a world of adventures. The map of my travels includes Mexico, Morocco, Istanbul, Cappadocia, Italy, London, and Paris. I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list.
A flower design is one of my favorites, but it’s all about telling a story with intention of the artist’s impression. Its unique details, colors, and texture make it stand out.
Makes for happy day
Exceeding couples expectations
While I love a fabulous affair, it’s the nitty-gritty behind the pretty I thrive on. My specialty is listening intently to my couples and thinking outside the box to exceed their expectations. So you can plan a wedding that lasts only hours but is remembered for a lifetime.
We will definitely be a hit
