11 years ago I packed it all up and moved from Kansas to Brooklyn.
I've got Midwestern heart and New York grit. You get every ounce of both on your wedding day.
I was raised in a town of 150 people in Kansas. (That's me above on the right getting a perm with my sister. What else did we have to do around there besides make crazy decisions about our hair?). Despite now feeling 100% at home in Brooklyn, I am still a small-town girl at heart.
I know my neighbors, and I always say hello. I sometimes get overwhelmed in rush-hour subway cars that hold about as many people as my hometown. I love watching football (Go Chiefs!) and hosting parties. One of my deepest passions in life is what I'm going to eat for dinner, and I'm excited about all of it--from the soup-can casseroles to the multi-course tasting menus at too-trendy restaurants.
I share the adventure of big city living with my husband Joe, a writer who's also from Kansas. We spend our days off together walking the neighborhoods of NYC, reading, going to the theater, planning travel adventures and making up cocktails from our home bar (and then curling up on the couch and re-watching episodes of The Office or Parks and Rec).
I was never that little girl who grew up planning her wedding day (I had many other adventures in mind first), yet now I honestly love being a part of my clients' weddings. I enjoy laughing with you and your wedding party in the prep room, getting to know your parents during the family formals, and I definitely hit the dance floor hard during your reception with my camera in hand. I'd be downright honored to be part of this day in the story of your life.
