do everything for my family, and the people who look up to me. At my core, I'm a future wife, daughter, sister, traveler, planner, educator, and friend.   I absolutely love what I do.

The experience you have on your special day means everything., and when booking me as your wedding planner or event designer, I feel that quality should be equally as paramount as the experience when we work together. I need you to be smiling, laughing, and feeling at ease throughout the entire process.  I want you to trust in me 100%, and I want us to be friends. I'll be celebrating with you every step of the way.

This experience is so important. After all, your planner/ coordinator may be the one person who will by your side more than any other person on your special day (other than your husband/wife, of course)! So, hiring a wedding planner who is fun and has an outgoing attitude is so important - and that's exactly what you get with me.  And not to worry - I will help you stay on track with your schedule on your special day, and will be cracking jokes with you all day long.   Simply, we will have so much FUN together with everything along the way.  And honestly, that's the way it should be.

Your experience is EVERYTHING 

Vanessa was incredible to work with. She took the vision I thought up and executed it perfectly.

 Vanessa was incredible to work with. I’m an incredibly visual person and she took the vision I thought up and executed it perfectly. She’s kind, encouraging and easy to work with but also honest. Guests couldn’t stop their praises about how everything looked and neither could other vendors stop talking about how much they loved working with Vanessa! Thank you for making our day perfect ❤️!
