Many people ask me, "How did you choose wedding planning?" This question is simple for me to answer. Never did I think this was going to be my career, however, right after graduating from The University of Colorado Denver with my degree in Business Administration, I got offered a job as an event assistant at Mile High Station, a wedding venue in Denver, where my career path was altered forever.
The first wedding I worked I balled my eyes out while watching the bride walk down the isle from the second floor mezzanine. Me? Crying at a wedding?! This was NOT what I expected. It was in that first wedding where I realized my true love of LOVE! I continued managing events at Mile High Station until I was offered a position as an Event Presentation Coordinator with Denver's Major League Soccer Team, the Colorado Rapids. Now this was the career I thought I always wanted: SPORTS! I absolutely loved working for the team and found my new passion for soccer, however, one thing was missing. I missed watching people begin their lives together and missed being surrounded by so much love.
In the offseason of 2017, I decided to move back to California, something I had wanted to do since I moved to Colorado seven years prior. Shortly after moving back to CA, I began applying for wedding planner positions but noticed most planners are a one woman team who just need day of assistants. This is when I met Catherine from CBS Lifestylist. She gave me the kick in the a** I needed to start my own wedding planning company. That day, after meeting with Catherine, I went home, thought of the name (In The Details), drew up a logo and convinced my cousin to help me create my website.
Creating In The Details was something I expected to happen years down the road for me. However, I am so thankful that I met Catherine and that she gave me the boost of confidence I needed to start this company. Now I am exactly where I know I am supposed to be. I am helping couples declare their love for each other on the most important days of their lives. The lover of love is now following her passion and doing what she loves!
