A B O U T
Founder + Lead Planner
Hello! I am so glad you found us! I founded Lovely Day Events in 2015 following years of studying and working in fine arts. What started as a degree in theatre direction, running a film festival and passion for entertaining, atmosphere and ambiance transformed into a love of planning meaningful, modern and stylish weddings. I love getting to know my couples and have even officiated a client's wedding!
I’m deeply inspired by the arts and my client's personal stories and adventures. I have a hospitality-driven heart and love hosting those close to us. When I’m not planning weddings, I’m raising our two silly and incredibly smart boys with my husband of 16 years.
I am originally from New Mexico, have lived in NYC, Los Angeles, and Durham, NC for grad school. I am so proud and happy to call Austin my home.
Favorite Place to Travel: Anywhere in Europe
Guilty Pleasure: I’ve often been known to hide candy in my desk from my two boys!
Favorite Music: Alternative and classical. I especially love Joy Division, TV on the Radio, Broken Social Scene and Tame Impala.
My hobbies are Piano, painting, reading, and cooking.
Beverage of Choice: A toss up between stout beer and champagne.
Biggest Wedding Inspiration: Art! My husband and I actually got married at an art gallery in New Mexico!
Favorite Wedding Moment: The moment right before the bride walks down the aisle! So much anticipation, excitement and happiness.
