I began my journey into entrepreneurship at the age of 24 as a paralegal. While I grew and learned much from my time in the corporate world, I really felt like I was missing something in my life. I truly enjoy being creative, thinking outside the box, and constantly growing/pushing myself to go beyond what my mind was telling me I couldn't do. I wanted to prove to myself that I could do something, like start a small business from the ground up, and succeed in it.
One day, I was having a couple drinks with my girlfriend and we sparked the idea of starting a wedding planning business. I had planned my own and several friends' weddings along the way. Something my husband told me when he watched me plan a mutual friends' wedding was, "you seem like you're in your element." He was right, I was.
January 1, 2020 I opened Urban Events. 3 months into it, COVID hit and there goes weddings- cancellations, postponements, silence- you name it. Quarantine was in full swing and I didn't know what to do. So, I got on the phone/Zoom and made connections with local vendors- photographers, videographers, florists, fellow planners, you name it. Looking back at it now, COVID helped my small business become what it is; well thought-out and executed. It gave me the necessary time to hire a business coach, get a logo/brand, build my website (twice), build packages, network with incredible vendors in the industry and figure out how to stand out as a unique planner in the wedding industry.
I have built myself to be a never-ending source of information for my clients. My approach into wedding planning is very different as I like to focus on the engagement-experience for my couples. Self care, relationship connection and communication are super important to me and I want to give my couples plenty of resources during this short period of time in their "engagement" season to find those connections and work on them now, before the marriage begins. With my keen eye for detail, dynamic approach and organizational skills, I work hard to create an unforgettable experience for my couples.
So, reach out and let's chat! I would love to get to know you!
