If you ask my family and friends why I am in the wedding industry, the word passion would probably come to mind. I am passionate about what I do and I truly do love and believe in it. I find it such a shame that people live their whole lives working at a job they do not enjoy. My job as an event decorator and planner can be stressful and time consuming, but I would not change it for the world. I get to wake up every day and be thankful that I get to go to a job that I am thoroughly excited about!
I guess it all started when I was little…my love for creativity and making people happy. Whether it was writing poetry to inspire people or deciding that I was going to make everyones Christmas gifts because I wanted it to mean something. I have always been a giver. The fact that I get to meet with a couple and work with them on planning one of the most joyous days of their life brings me such delight. Helping create someone’s dream vision for their event is inspiring. If I can bring more joy and less stress to someone’s event (wedding, birthday party or even bar mitzvah), than I have done my job. I have always been an organizer and a planner. My favorite thing to do as a little girl was to rearrange my room and create new décor. For this reason, when I found fashion merchandising and interior design as a major at Northwest Missouri State University, I knew I had found my calling.
I interned for Spectacular Settings LLC in 2011. After graduation I decided that I needed to find a career and explore other avenues. After taking time to see what other options were out there, I realized what I loved and wanted to do. In 2012 I began working for Spectacular Settings again. After being offered the business in the summer of 2012 with much soul searching and prayer I decided to take over ownership in December of 2012. It has been an amazing journey so far and I can only hope that God blesses me with many more years to come! All I can hope for is through the experience I gained from my internship, the knowledge I gained from my degree and being in business on my own now for just under 5 years, that I can grow this wonderful business into something truly special and successful.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little bit about me and why I love doing what I do! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to set up an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you and hope you get excited about what there is to see on Spectacular Settings’ site.
