Hi, my name is Erika and I am so excited that you decided to stop by.  So a little bit about myself, well I love to laugh until it hurts, dance until my feet ache, and spend time with my family and friends.  I was was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and moved to Southern California after marrying my hubby in 2008 who is the love of my life. 

If you talk to me long enough you may hear what they call a southern twang.  That's because I spent most of my holidays and summer breaks in Louisiana from my mother's hometown.  My friends often say I have a little Southern Charm as well.   

Events have been a part of my life every since I can remember.  I get my creativity and love for life from her parents, who both instilled great values, character, and integrity something that I am so grateful for. 

So a few more professional deets about me.  I obtained my certification in Wedding Consulting from Penn Foster College as a Certified Professional Bridal Consultant.  I also hold a Bachelor of Science Degree from Washington University in Accountancy and an MBA.  Before I dove full force to my wedding and event planning business, I worked in corporate and have over 15 years of experience managing multiple clients with over $1.5 billion dollars in annual spending. 

So now with the fun stuff.  Why do I love planing so much?  It's because I get to work with amazing clients and help them to vision and dream about their event but I also get to help that dream become a reality.  It's about turning something drab into fab with a dash of pizazz and a lots of love.  For me, it's about the you and making sure you walk away feeling like your event represents you!
