As a bride who loved planning each and every aspect of her wedding, I understand what it’s like to experience weddings from both sides–as a planner and as a bride.  While planning my own destination wedding, I became inspired to help fellow brides by creating the wedding blog Primp My Bride, where I share advice and tips that are invaluable during the wedding planning process.  I later applied to become a Featured Blogger on WeddingBee, the largest wedding blog in the US and was accepted, giving me the chance to share my wedding planning experience with an audience of millions.  I have been quoted for tips on wedding planning in Huffington Post Weddings twice (3 Savvy Secrets to Finding Your Wedding Style and 11 Crazy Smart Wedding Budget Tips from Real Brides and Vendors), Forbes, Bridal Guide and Bride & Groom Magazine.

Inspired to help couples on an even more personal level and with encouragement from my amazing husband, family and friends, I decided to take my passion one step further and plan weddings professionally.  I am a Certified Wedding Planner and member of the Association of Bridal Consultants.  I also served as the Assistant Director for the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, who specialize in wedding gown cleaning, preservation and restoration from 2013-2015.

Prior to planning weddings, I worked in the digital advertising industry for almost a decade and have a B.A. in English from NYU.  I created This Modern Love Events, LLC to bring my professional experience in digital media, my love of all things wedding, my sharp organizational skills and my passion for helping couples plan their weddings to perfection.  I am a romantic at heart and believe that a piece of dessert can solve all problems :)

“This Modern Love” is a song from one of my favorite bands, Bloc Party.  This is also what’s engraved in my husband’s wedding ring.

My husband and I are totally obsessed with our Goldendoodle puppy Coco, who was born on the exact same day as our first wedding anniversary. 

I am a travel junkie!  I love experiencing the culture of a new city through the eyes of the locals and of course through its food.  I’ve been to tons of different cities and countries but according to TripAdvisor, I’ve only explored 7% of the world so far.  Clearly something needs to be done about that!

Cupcakes (particularly red velvet or salted caramel) are the key to my heart ☺

Now that you know a bit more about me, I would absolutely love to learn more about you and your big day!  I love meeting new couples, hearing your love story and creating ideas for your wedding day that will make your wedding guests say “This is the best wedding I’ve ever been to!” or “This wedding is so them!”  If this is what you envision for your wedding day, drop me a line so we can meet over coffee, tea or wine and chat about how I can help you stay stress free on your big day :)
