A little about Lisa

I pride myself on my attention to detail and my excellent organizational skills. For as far back as I can remember I’ve always been a planner. I have always had a flair for creativity that always brings something unique to the table in everything I do! I've always been passionate when it comes to planning special occasions and after turning several of those occasions into realities I decided to turn that passion into a career. It’s a beautiful thing when a career and passion come together!

I’ve been married to my husband for almost 5 years, and together for almost 11 years. Being that he is Portuguese we had the big wedding with almost 300 guests! Overwhelming to say the least. Even though I am great at planning I still found I was getting stressed out trying to be the bride and the planner at the same time. I had someone take over the day of the wedding to coordinate, which if you know me at all it is really hard for me to relinquish control to someone else. But, I have to say, what a difference it made. Just knowing that the little things did not need to be taken care of on the day of left me free to enjoy my day.

Throughout my life it's been a series of ups and downs. I went through some very hard times, and some very tragic losses. It helped that I could focus on planning something beautiful despite all that other stuff. Knowing how precious life can be, and being able to make dreams come true is a rare thing these days. The very best part about doing what I do is seeing the expressions on people’s faces on the day of their special occasion, blissful and relaxed. Knowing that I made that possible makes it all worthwhile!!
