Fun Facts: When I’m not creating fabulous events, I can easily be found reading about European culture and enjoying my hobby of interior décor. Our home is filled with valuable treasures we’ve collected over the years from our military duty with tours of Germany and Italy. I also love to scrapbook in my downtime.
Here are a few more of my favorite things to do!
1. Favorite Destination: My favorite place to visit is Italy. I lived in Vicenza, Italy for 4 years supporting the US Army Services and my active duty husband.
2. Favorite Shop: Starbucks is my first choice in a coffee shop. There’s nothing that starts the day off like a Tall Blonde Roast Americana Coffee
3. Favorite Little Things: I am a lover of Tieks flats. I own different colors with one pair of purple ones being my favorite. I also adore Alegria Clogs (bling and colorful) for comfort on event days.
See you in class!

I would definitely recommend this course. It was more than what I expected. I feel that this course would not have been complete without the once a week in class meetings. I enjoyed Angela, my professor, as my guide to becoming a professional wedding planner. With her experiences, that are not discussed in the book, really gave me the confidence that I needed. The professionals that came and spoke to the class, and Angela allow us to pick her brain, really aided me in the wedding planning business. I can’t wait to receive me certification and actually say I am a professional Wedding and Event Planner for Lovegevity.
