Wonderstruck Planner and Designer
Favorite Quote: “Life is not a dress rehearsal. Everyday you should have at least one exquisite moment.” – Sally Karioth
I’m a Design Girl, a formerly practicing architect, a student of the graphic arts, an advocate of color and textrue, and I love to plan a good party. I am also a love story junkie, a semi-pro chocolate taster, and momma bear to new baby Jay and four fur-kids (A Great Dane, a Jack Russell, Chihuahua and Noodle the Chiweenie.) Nothing makes me happier than planning a thoughtful event – and that’s why I love the wedding and event industry. I currently live in Seward Park, Seattle with my handsome and hilarious husband, Nathan who is a glass artist. Wonderstruck Event Design has been my dream job for the past 5 years because it combines all my favorite things – people, parties, and planning!
Planning and design have come pretty naturally to me all my life. I graduated from the University of Idaho School of Art and Architecture with a Masters Degree in Architecture and a minor in Graphic Design. Following my education, I moved to Seattle and spent several years working for major design firms as an architect and planner. There, I fine tuned my skills for project management and grew as a designer. After helping out several friends with their weddings, I realized that I had a real passion for them. In the spring of 2013 I decided to make a full time job of my passions – and Wonderstruck LLC was born. Since that time, my staff and I have helped more than 100 couples plan, design, and party in style at their dream weddings.
On my rare days off, I enjoy traveling, spending time working on house projects, volunteering, and binging on the latest shows. Lately, I have become addicted to the Outlander Series – (the books are amazing!) What can I say, I’m a hopeless romantic.
So… what about you? What makes you tick? What do you love? What events are you dreaming about for your future? I’d love to find out! Send me an email here to schedule your complimentary consultation today.
