When did you decide you wanted to start up your own business?
I knew I wanted to start up my own business when I was in high school, but it took me a few years after that to finally get the guts to do it!
What is your favorite part about planning weddings?
It is hard to pick just one, but I love the time that goes into getting to know our brides and grooms. Each couple is just so different and seeing their dream come to life, as well as them seeing their wedding day unfold… it’s just the most magical thing.
How do you keep up with the latest wedding trends?
I am a social media queen. I love Pinterest, wedding blogs, wedding magazines, and tossing around my own ideas. All of our brides are so great that trendy is something we keep in mind but they take something that’s trendy and make it into their own special idea.
How would you describe your style as a wedding planner?
Classic, fun, with a little sparkle!
What sets The Golden Pineapple Event Company apart?
We really take the time to get to know our brides, grooms, and their families. We let our brides think on their own but are truthful when they get a little crazy.
What advice do you like to give to newly engaged Brides?
Enjoy this time in your life because it is the absolute best! So many people will be giving you advice about your wedding and future marriage between now and your wedding day but stay true to who you are and what you want. Future marriage advice: Pick your battles wisely!
