I am pleased to tell you more about me personally. I am thirty-something years old, I married a wonderful man named Mark in May of 2001; and we have two gorgeous children. I have a degree in Computer Aided Drafting and worked in the in Civil Engineering field for 8 years before becoming a mother. I started Proposing Dreams in the fall of 2001 while working part time. When I had my son in April 2004, I “retired” from the engineering field and took on weddings and parenting full time.

I am a natural leader with a complete understanding of the frantic bride. I thoroughly enjoy the calm I can give to brides when they hand it all over and truly enjoy their wedding day. With my technical and logistics background, I am capable of giving you a realistic vision of what is possible; and more importantly, what is not possible depending on cost, location, staff and so on.
