I grew up in Reno, having lived here 25 years!  I have always been a visionary and have been in the construction business for many years which has helped me in this business. I've gone from building dream structures to building specific items for  weddings and events! I get to be creative and I am often found helping with all the setup and tear-down of each event. I really enjoy the logistic side of the business, planning layouts and doing site evaluations.  Being in business together allows more quality time with Karie. Work life gets busy, but luckily we get to work together!

Born and raised in Oklahoma, I learned early the three F's:  Faith, Family and Football! If I'm not busy planning an upcoming event you can find me supporting my two sons in all their activities. Running a business with my husband is the perfect fit for me! We make a GREAT team. I am the face of the company, meeting with new clients and handling all the administrative aspects of the business. I also help with all the design ideas and do most of the planning! When asked why I got into the wedding industry,  it was an easy answer: I love people! I get to know people on a very personal level and get to see ideas come to life! My nature is to help people and being a planner I get to use my gifts in a very fun way!
