What do you love most about your job? I love being able to take someone’s initial inspiration for their wedding and transform it into a wonderland. Having a creative job and working in an imaginative atmosphere is awesome.
What should people know about you? After graduating college about 2 years ago, I moved to Austin from Florida to find my dream career. I worked hard and found it! I’m artistic, very clumsy, and sarcastic once you get to know me. Oh yeah, I enjoy long walks on the beach.
What is your design inspiration? What inspires you? I like to find beauty in the uncommon things in life (the ugly things). Turning something or some place from “plain jane” to “wow” is inspiring and gets my heart rate up.
What’s your favorite design element you’ve done in a wedding? I loved the paper table runner that we made for our Town and Country photo shoot. It took forrreevveerr to make, but was so amazingly detailed and intricate that I still dream about it.
We turned an unused well at a vineyard wedding into a wishing well. It was really great. We made a dyed cork sign for the bride and groom. It really stood out as something unique and special.
Garden or warehouse? Warehouse. Black thumbs run in my family.
Cake or Pie? Pie. A la mode. :)
Favorite flowers? Anemones, Fever Few, and Scented Geranium
Movie or Music? Movie with a really good soundtrack
Roadtrip or Fly? Fly. Flying is fun.
Elvis or Cash? Fleetwood Mac or Simon and Garfunkel
Snow or Sun? Sun. I’m just about always freezing. I can handle the cold for a little, but I’m much happier when it’s toasty.
Night Owl or Early Bird? Night Owl. I’m sort of nocturnal.
Plaid, stripes or chevron? I like to switch it up.
