As the principal planner and lead designer at SBM event co.  I fully believe that memorable events are not only about what you see, but how they make you feel.

My overwhelming commitment for bringing an event to life will be evident from the moment we meet. As the creative force behind each and every celebration, I pride myself on creating cohesive environments that are truly personalized experiences. Combine that with expert logistical planning and you have the best of both worlds from concept to execution.

 Being an event planner and designer is not for the faint of heart. The high stakes, long hours, high stress, travel, and that darn Murphy's law might have you asking why we do it. Honestly; the joy I receive when a bride walks down the aisle still fills my soul so much that I tear up. Every... darn... time... without fail.

If you were to ask me: What keeps you going? It would be that every day here at SBM event co. we get to help you dream, design, and plan some of life's most cherished events. Being a part of that makes me feel like this is exactly what I am supposed to be doing at any given moment. I can't think of anything better than helping couples, their family, and their friends in creating memories that will last a lifetime.
