About Me

I'm So Glad You're Here

Hey there, I’m Carolyn – the multitasking maestro behind this operation! As the owner, lead planner, social media whiz, bookkeeper, appointment guru, and all-around doer-of-things, I proudly wear many hats in this business. Despite having a fantastic support system, I am the heart and soul of this brand – and I absolutely love it.

Catch me at a wedding, and you’ll likely spot me with an iced coffee in hand, no matter the weather. With 96% of my blood possibly being iced coffee at this point, I’ve embraced the caffeinated life. I have an undeniable passion for travel and exploring new places, which becomes even more thrilling when I get to do it for weddings. From Cincinnati, Ohio, to upcoming trips to St. Louis, Missouri, and Colorado Springs, Colorado, I’m always excited to follow my couples’ love stories wherever they take me. Cheers to the incredible journey ahead!

Carolyn was our day of coordinator and I couldn't imagine what our day would have been like without her help. Even my parents continue to tell me how amazing she was and how they don't know how we would have done it without her. Carolyn is very friendly and was super responsive in the time leading up to our day. We had one scheduled planning meeting call, but I felt I could email her anytime I had any questions! The day of, she was there every step of the way. She was there at the start to set up all our decor and make sure things were in order. Once I arrived, she was always checking in to see if I needed anything. She was also a life saver when it came to bustling my dress and tensions were high. The end of the night was a blur, but all of our items were packed up perfectly and back in their original boxes. I would recommend Carolyn to anyone looking for a day of coordinator!!
