I discovered my skill and passion for event planning in 2006 working with nonprofits on their fundraising events. I started out as a volunteer with a community group in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, WA planning their annual Holiday Magic street festival. When the event was a success, I was hired the next two years in a row to plan the same event. Through my work on the Holiday Magic festival, I connected with another local nonprofit organization- the Queen Anne Helpline – where I was hired to plan their annual gala & auction in 2008 & 2009. I have also worked on the Capitol Hill Block Party and Portland Rose Festival.
In 2011, however, I planned my own wedding and fell in love with the bridal side of events. After the success of my own wedding, I decided to start my own business in 2012. Until recently this was a side gig I did while working full time in the tech industry. In 2015 my husband and I decided to take the plunge for me to be a stay-at-home mom with our daughter while focusing on building the business at the same time.
