I've sat with thousands of couples who were planning their weddings. I've listened to their needs, desires, fears, and joy.
I get you.
I've lived and breathed weddings for 18 years. I've helped plan and execute 700+ weddings as Proprietor and Steward of the Castle at Chase Court, the wedding venue I own in Baltimore, Maryland. I write a column on weddings for Baltimore OUTloud, Maryland's LGBTQ newspaper, and write a regular guest blog on weddings for partyspacebaltimore.com.
In 2018, I received a National Association for Catering and Events NACE One Award for Wedding of the Year for a Harry Potter-themed wedding at Chase Court.
When I'm not doing something wedding (which is most of the time), I enjoy photography (I used to be a pro), and especially love making photographs of cars. (Wanna see? Look here.) I love primary colors, sports cars, and dark chocolate. I also make a mean stir fry!
I've spent decades practicing and learning about the mind/body/spirit connection, mindfulness, and exploring the work of Byron Katie, Brené Brown, Harvey Jackins, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, and Leo Buscaglia, among others.
For nearly twenty years I’ve led and co-led several dozen workshops across the country, centered around creating deep human connection.
Now, with Getting The Wedding You Want, I'm tapping into every bit of that history — and more — and consulting with couples before they start to plan their weddings as well as during the planning process.
I'll help you create a wedding experience that deeply reflects who you are as individuals and as a couple. I also provide guidance on how to make good decisions about all things wedding, including how to choose their venue, caterer, wedding planner, and other wedding professionals.
