What inspired you to launch your own business?

I love solving challenging problems… creatively. I've had a very diverse job background from being a book-keeper, to being a buyer for Louis Vuitton, to makeup artist, to investment banker (and more!) I've tried a variety of career paths. But, when you have a strong work ethic, a curious mind, and are thrilled by seeing things come together, starting your own business is a natural conclusion. Starting one, simply began my addiction. Since I began Bermuda Bride in 1999, I have started and sold a highly successful floral company called Petals, a design company named Elements, and Bermuda Travel, a high end travel company. Now, I am about to launch a new wedding planning company called Something Blue, which will focus on smaller weddings. Earlier this year, I also started Big Fish Events- becoming the exclusive provider for Sperry Tents. But, if truth be told, I just absolutely love working and creating. The best part is that now there is a direct correlation between my efforts and my income!

What keeps you passionate about weddings?

Wow, well, I’ll admit I have a short attention span, so planning weddings gives me the ability to immerse myself fully into creating something quite unique and seeing it all come together. Each and every time. I love that each couple is so different and the challenges of working together are so different. I also love technology and am constantly fine tuning our process and the software we use to make working with each client a phenomenal experience.

Please share a recent testimonial from a happy client!

"People still tell me it was the most beautiful wedding (both in design and spirit) and weekend they've been to, which brings me so much joy. Thank you for helping me accomplish this! I literally could not have done this wedding without a wedding planner. I can't even begin to imagine how difficult that would have been. By working with Bermuda Bride, I did not need to worry about a thing! Everyone talks about how stressful planning a wedding is, but honestly, I didn't experience any stress. You made the entire process enjoyable. My favourite part about working with Bermuda Bride was your experience. Knowing you've done this a million times before, especially at Mid Ocean, made me feel comfortable that it was all going to work out ok. The wedding was absolutely perfect. And I know my mom was so proud of the entire event and still can't get over how magnificent it all was, so that of course makes me very happy.” - Bride
