Planning Assistant/Day of Coordinator
Hello! & Welcome! My name is Monica, I currently live In Lancaster, PA with my husband and my sweet daughter, Mia! I graduated from Alvernia University with a degree in Accounting and have been working in the field ever since! I grew up loving all things wedding related. Each and every wedding I went to sparked countless ideas, and my passion for planning continued to grow! After I planned my own wedding, I decided to pursue my love for weddings and received my certificate in Wedding & Event Planning from NYIAD. I am a very detailed oriented person and am passionate about every job that I do, working in the accounting field, I am very accustomed to working with budgets, clients, and timelines, which has become an added asset for me working in the wedding industry! My favorite part of being in the wedding industry is the relationships I get to build with the couple! Every couple deserves to celebrate their love exactly how they envision it and being able to assist with that in any way possible is priceless! When I am not working, you'll find me spending time with my family, lost in a good book, or on a beach somewhere with a drink in my hand! Thanks so much for stopping by and we cannot wait to make your day amazing!
Owner and Lead Planner
Welcome Everyone! A little about me, I grew up in the small town of Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, I stayed super close to home and went to Messiah College where I got my Bachelors in Human Development and Family Science. My degree equipped me with strong interpersonal skills, and strengthened my passion and desire of helping others. I currently live in Elizabethtown, PA with my amazing husband, my five fur babies, and am a mama to be come Summer 2019! I have always been a hopeless romantic and always dreamt of getting to work in the wedding industry. I worked as a teachers assistant for one of my professors throughout college and was in charge of planning numerous marriage enrichment weekends, one thing led to another, and here I am now getting to pursue my passion as a wedding planner! When I am not planning weddings, you can find me curled up on the couch, with a bowl of popcorn watching the bachelor or trying out a new local winery! (Only the sweetest wine please!) I have a natural gift of organization and planning which was a big part of what led me to get into the wedding industry. The most important reason I do what I do is to help bring joy to others. Being in the wedding industry you get to witness so many incredibly happy moments, being able to be a small part and help create those moments is what I live for!
