How long have you been decorating weddings? I have been decorating for weddings for over 15 years.

Why do you love what you do? Decorating for weddings is my passion. I found a way to blend my passion and talent that infuses the lives others. It feels good to have this sense of purpose, knowing that I am using my skills to help others in a way that really matters to me. It's all about the details. I take great pride in making my decorations memorable for my clients and guest. I do this by providing custom décor services, consultation, staging and rentals.
