What makes you or your business stand out and why should a couple hire you?
The Dominion Club is a private country club located in the Wyndham community in the West End. A common misconception about the club is that you have to be a member to host a wedding or event, which is not true! I have an amazing events team and culinary team that will execute your big day perfectly. We have a beautiful, waterfront ceremony site that provides the perfect setting for any couples wanting an outdoor ceremony. I may be biased.. but I think I work at the most beautiful venue and am thankful for that every day!
What’s a weird/unusual tip you tell your couples?
I always tell my couples to not stress about the small stuff! Although the linen colors/napkin folds, etc. are all important and the details make your day come together the way you envisioned- your guests are still going to have a great time regardless of those! They are not going to remember those small details; just that they had great food, great music, a great venue and an awesome time!
What’s your favorite thing about what you do?
My favorite thing about what I do is seeing all the planning come together on the day of the wedding! Working at a venue, I really get to see the whole planning process from start to finish, since the first thing couples normally do is book a venue! I love when all the hard work comes together for the big day. And I will have to say, my second favorite is seeing the bride in her wedding dress. To me, that’s the final piece of the puzzle.
What’s your go-to spot to eat in RVA?
Going out to eat or going to happy hour is my favorite hobby! It’s hard for me to choose only one spot. Some of my favs are Graffiato, Continental Westhampton, East Coast Provisions and The Daily. I love trying out new places too!
What was your first job?
My first job was a lifeguard at the pool my family belonged too. I absolutely hated it. I learned quickly I needed interaction with people while on the job. I only did this for one summer, then started working in restaurants. I loved waiting tables and being in the fast-paced environment of a restaurant!
What did you eat for breakfast this morning?
An everything bagel with cream cheese from Einstein Bros- my fav!
Where is your happy place?
The BEACH! Sometimes I wonder why I live in Richmond since I am 1000% times happier by the ocean. If I could live the rest of my life sitting in a beach chair, I would do it in a heartbeat. Topsail Island is my favorite beach, but I don’t discriminate!
Nachos. What would you put on yours?
I am all about some nachos! And for me, the more toppings the better. Give me all the cheese and guac. I love spicy food, so plenty of jalapenos, salsa and hot sauce too. Skip the lettuce because why would you want anything healthy on nachos?
