Meet the Team

Meet Vanna

FOUNDER, PRINCIPAL PLANNER, OPERATIONS DIRECTOR

Vanna

I’m an organization queen, a cat-lover, a story-teller, an advice-giver and a natural planner at heart. Most days you’ll find me in a comfy oversized shirt, a top-knot in my hair, and a coffee mug just out of reach (while working from my couch). But don’t let that fool you, I love ANY excuse to get gussied up. Wearing a dress with some heels, paired with a pop of color on my lip is my favorite.

So what’s it like to work together? I believe in collaboration and brainstorming sessions, usually over cocktails and appetizers. I think you’re smart and savvy and I want to hear about your ideas to help curate a more unique and personal wedding day. When the day of your wedding finally arrives, I’ll might get a little emotional when I see you in your dress for the first time. After all, we’ve been planning your day together for months and often it’s a bittersweet feeling.

When I’m not planning weddings, you can find me at happy hour, probably sipping on a martini (extra dirty, please). Or at bootcamp, attempting to burn off the calories from last weekend’s wedding cake (because I’m a cake snob and I ALWAYS have to taste the cake).

I’m a midwest girl at heart. I was born and raised in the Dairyland state of Wisconsin. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh with a BBA in marketing and supply chain management, I was SO over the cold, snowy winters. I yearned for sunshine, hot weather, and big-city living, and now look where I am! 

Meet Paige

CREATIVE DIRECTOR, DESIGN COORDINATOR

Paige

You may be surprised to hear this, but before finding my place in wedding planning, I was a band manager, a realtor, a child caretaker, and I even made and sold my own jewelry. I’ve always been a big dreamer, a big thinker, and a creative extrovert. I’m a natural conversationalist and I’m always looking to connect on a personal level, which means we’ll probably get to know each other pretty easily.

After getting married myself and moving into our first home, I fell in love with hosting. It started out small, with dinner parties and mommy meet-ups. Slowly my gatherings grew more complex in terms of theme and decor. While my friends rave about my elaborate dinner parties, much to my own surprise, planning my wedding was a whole other beast. In hindsight, having an unbiased and experienced professional as a sounding-board for ideas and advice (aka a wedding planner), would have made a world of difference.

I’m happy to say my love of hosting cozy get-togethers has now transitioned onto a larger scale. I truly believe big weddings don’t have to be impersonal, and my goal is to help other ladies avoid the same wedding planning pitfalls I made.
