What’s a weird/unusual tip you tell your couples?
It never hurts to ask questions and over-communicate with your vendors. Personally, I love it when my couples ask my opinion on things, send me pictures, ask all the questions, etc.!
What’s your favorite thing about what you do?
My favorite thing about my job is seeing my couples on the day of their wedding and their appreciation for everything. From seeing family and friends to getting exactly what we plan and more!
How did you get to where you are now?
I started working at a previous hotel and I was given an opportunity to work task force at Quirk Hotel. From the moment I checked in, met the staff and experienced my first wedding with Quirk Hotel, I fell in love and I knew this was the place I needed to be!
What’s something every couple should know before getting married?
The old wedding traditions don’t have to be incorporated into your wedding. Your wedding is about you and your partner! Personalize your wedding day to how/what you would want your guests to know about you as a couple.
