What is your favorite part of your work week and why?

The favorite part of my work week is always Wedding Day. Watching the Bride as she is about to walk down the aisle is such a beautiful thing! Sometimes she is nervous. Sometimes excited. Sometimes with and sometimes without her dad. The one thing that I’ve loved about every bride I’ve seen walk down our aisle is how Extraordinarily Elegant she is. She is the reason I do this.

What is your best planning advice or tip for couples?

This is one of the MOST IMPORTANT days of your life! Celebrate it the way that you would like to. Everyone will give you their opinion but the only one which truly matters on that day is yours. Take the time to make informed decisions based on your vision and your budget.

What other cities or locations have you worked weddings in?

I started my journey by opening a catering company in Hutto Texas. My passion was serving good food to great people! I fell in love with the Wedding Industry and everything about it. The company catered throughout all of Central Texas. Thistlewood Manor & Gardens in Kyle is where all of the Magic happens now!
