A Midwest girl born and raised, wife to my college sweetheart, tried and true extrovert, and a loyal daughter, sister & friend.
I believe that my purpose is to serve others through creativity, inspiration and unconditional love – and as an Event Planner & Designer, I’m so grateful to live that purpose day in and day out.
I’m passionate about making a positive impact on those I serve and building fruitful relationships with my clients that turn into cherished friendships for years to come.
Renee and I quickly became friends when she started working in my department at Under Armour. Her bubbly personality and kind heart were easy to relate to and not to mention her love for tacos really sealed the deal! (If you didn’t already know, I’m a sucker for food.. tacos.. margs…) It wasn’t shortly after she started work at UA that her and Nick got engaged in Aruba and they began to plan their romantic Baltimore wedding!
Here’s their story…
Renee and Nick met on Renee’s first day of college at Niagara University. They met at a party that evening and they’ve been inseparable ever since. They were both on the swim team at Niagara as well (talk about FIT!)… so I’m not joking when I say inseparable. Fast forward to July 1st, 2017, after seven years of dating, their wedding day was nothing short of a fairy tale.
Renee always dreamed of her wedding day – her “princess moment” as she likes to call it – and her amazing team of vendors did an excellent job of making this dream a reality. Between the soft blush pink linens and bridesmaid dresses, beautiful white and ivory floral arrangements, and gold accents throughout her reception, Renee and Nick’s wedding was nothing short of modern romantic. Surrounded by their closest family and friends gathered to celebrate their love, these two were smiling ear to ear the entire day.
Renee and Nick were married at St. Ignatious Catholic Church and held their reception at Royal Sonesta Harbor Point, both located in Baltimore, Maryland. This day couldn’t have been a better reflection of their modern romantic wedding vision.
The pictures below are some of my favorites from their wedding! You can also click over to my portfolio for additional photos form this special day.
