​Since starting this business a few years back, I have had the opportunity to work with amazing couples, and to make some very long-lasting friendships. I love the idea of sharing with you the day that you get to marry the love of your life, and I love being an integral part of everything that makes that day magical. ​

 

I have a degree in Business Management with a minor in Art Appreciation. I started fresh out of college in the corporate world developing and managing the details of small customer meetings as well as large corporate events for the energy industry. I am now, and have always been the quintessential 'wedding geek', for no matter how busy I was with my corporate job, I never stopped helping anyone and everyone who asked with the design and details of their wedding day.

 

​At Orange Dove, I have the privilege of working with a truly awesome team of terrific people who are committed to every aspect of your event. Our events have been featured on many of the top industry blogs with multiple events on Style Me Pretty.  We have also been featured in Westlake Magazine, the Malibu Times, and Ceremony Magazine.
