TELL US ABOUT YOU
Tell us why and how you became involved the business.
I love Love! And I have always been a creative person, so wedding planning will go hand in hand with these. I was a student of interior design until the market crashed and thought that my talents will be better utilized doing something that I absolutely love…and I love weddings! The more events that I planned for family and friends (and myself) the more I realized what I was meant to do and be.
What’s your favorite part of a typical day?
Meeting clients for the first time and seeing the excitement of their wedding on their faces! I also love the shopping (and who wouldn’t!)
Who gives you the best advice about your work?
My husband. He is more critical than I am! (and I am sort of a perfectionist, so I never thought that would be possible) He will actually straighten a candle and center a floral piece, and even though it drives me crazy, I love him for it.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Starting my business officially. This has been something I have wanted for a long time but didn’t know where to start. Why not start by doing something that I love…wedding planning.
What part of your job would you gladly give up?
The clean up after! I know it has to be done, but it’s wonderful to see the hard work pay off.
What do you do to relax/unwind?
I paint, travel, absolutely love music and going to the gym. Although I don’t go as often as I should, when I do I can take on the world when I’m done! It’s the best coffee ever!
What is your favorite thing about Richmond?
The wonderful nature. It reminds me of where I’m from – Trinidad. Lots of trees and friendly people. I also love the beach. It’s just an hour and a half from where I live.
What would we be surprised to learn about you?
I used to be a wedding and event singer!
