Cut to being a grown up and I now have the pleasure of sharing all of the absolutely gorgeous events that I have had the pleasure of designing and planning for countless clients.

Telling the story of how these events come to life quite literally brings a sparkle to my eye. I am beaming with happiness, excitement, and pride as I share all of these lovely details with you.

Come, read along, stare longingly at each and every beautiful photograph, and embark on my stories of the planning journey with Events by Pins and Petals!
