How did you get started in wedding planning?
I started doing events for the president of the University of Arizona. Slowly I transitioned to doing weddings on the side as I planned and participated in numerous social and fundraising events in the Phoenix area. Weddings were just a fun outlet when the rest of the events seemed very stressful. So in 2005 I went full time into weddings and haven't turned back.

If you had to start over what one thing would you do differently?
Gone straight to weddings. I knew I loved them, but I just wasn't sure I could make a living doing it. (I thought only J Lo and people in NYC or LA could do that). But I am glad I was wrong.

What's your favorite item in your emergency kit?
Double stick tape. For many reasons . . . .

What is the best piece of business advice you've ever received?
Be yourself and don't worry about anyone else.

What two people (past or present) would you have as guests at a dinner party and why?
I am a history major so this question seems rather unanswerable for me. At the top would probably be Jesus and President Abraham Lincoln. Two men who I think are very influential in history and would have a lot to say about being a good person and truly living life. But a close second would be Queen Elizabeth or Queen Victoria. What can I say?? Girl power!

What are your three favorite blogs besides
Design Sponge, Style Me Pretty, and Melissa Jill Photography.
