Lead Planner

 

Hi, I'm Alyssa!

For starters, I love people. I love learning how and why they tick, what makes them happy, and doing everything in my power to make the lives of those around me better. When it came to choosing a career path, I wanted to make sure whichever job I pursued gave me enough excitement to wake up everyday and put my all into it. I sat down one day and really thought about it - then wedding planning crossed my mind. It made every other option I had considered sound like settling. It made sense. So, I moved to Seattle from Sacramento (Go Kings!), and after working for several wedding and event planning companies, my dream of launching my own wedding planning business finally came true. 

More about me? I love exploring the Pacific Northwest with my lovely boyfriend Ethan, caffeine actually makes me sleepier (but I still choose to drink it anyway), and I love any and every large fluffy dog that comes my way! I believe classic will never go out of style, that natural beauty is the most beautiful,  and that the little things in life matter the most (like hand-written thank you notes and "I love you's" before bed).

My favorite part of a wedding day is at the end, when everything is being cleaned up and loaded out. At that moment, usually only a handful of the bride and groom's family and close friends are there, lingering and enjoying the last few moments of the big day. In that moment, there is a HUGE amount of raw emotion being expressed, from gratitude to pure love and joy - it means so much to be able to share these precious moments with couples and their families. It means so much that people who were strangers before have no hesitation with welcoming you into their lives and into their family, embracing you at the end of it all and truly meaning everything they say. It means SO much, to be able to help make beautiful and memorable moments possible for so many wonderful people. Sometimes planning a wedding may seem overwhelming, but I cannot imagine doing anything else!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I cannot wait to meet and learn all about you! Please contact me to set up your complimentary consultation and let's make some magic happen!
