Hello, I’m Lori!

My passion is planning; my joy is your smile!

Bringing joy and fun to people’s lives brings me happiness and I never grow tired of it.  Who else can say their job is creating a romantic wedding one day, preparing for a music CD launching the next, and …. Oh!  Did I mention creating a dead body for a James Bond murder mystery party?

Since I only take on no more than 6 events each year, I can give each and every client my undivided attention. I have many years of experience as an executive level administrative assistant, which developed my organizational skills and gave me an eye for detail.

 

Let’s Write Your Story!

Simply put, I will help you share your story with your guests in a unique and personal way, and create an experience everyone will remember fondly for a lifetime.  One bride called me her “angel” and my goal is to be exactly that for you!

Your Wedding = An Experience to Remember Fondly …

Your wedding planning experience should be nothing except fun and stress-free, and I am here to shoulder the burden and spend all the necessary hours to bring your wedding vision to life. Your wedding day itself should be a day that you wake up relaxed and refreshed, confident in knowing that everything will run smoothly for you. You won’t have to lift a finger except to take a sip of champagne or your favorite beverage, and the only other thing you need to do on that very special day is have fun with your wedding tribe.

I love creating beautiful spaces and bringing your visions to life.  I love ballgowns and chivalry, and antique furniture. I love classic books and movies from the 40s.  And more than anything, I love weddings and happy celebrations!

But I also love new and fresh ideas — and I am passionate about helping you Write Your Own Story!

Before Pursuing My Dream …

I was an executive level Administrative Assistant and planned employee and public events, including a community gala.  In addition to developing that eye for detail and exceptional organizational skills, my career helped to instill perfectionism into my very soul.

Planning events and weddings has been a dream of mine since 2001 — a dream I am now living every day.  “With all my heart” may be a time-worn cliché, but it is how I will help you plan your event and bring your story to life.

I graduated from the QC Event School with certifications as an International Event & Wedding Planning Professional, Event Décor Consultant, and Luxury Event & Wedding Planner — and am proud to say that I received the school’s Award of Merit for perfect grades on all assignments!

My Free Time…

I enjoy reading novels or writing song lyrics, watching movies, and playing with my awesome dog, Hank Tucker.  My greatest joys are in spending time with my family and friends.  I am blessed with an amazing husband, daughter and son — as well as a daughter-in-law and 2 adorable grandsons.  Whenever we can, my husband and I travel to our place of peace, the Great Smoky Mountains, or to Florida to visit our grandsons and his parents.

 

Let's Get Started Writing Your Story!

A Few Fun Facts About Me…

  • I have had poems published in a national anthology, a couple of high school yearbooks, and even had one published in a local newspaper.  
  • I love researching my family history and have traced my father’s side of the family to 1500s England under Henry VIII and my mother’s to 1600s Germany.  I even learned that I am related to Cordell Hull, Secretary of State to F.D. Roosevelt during WWII and to Charles Kettering!
  • Our dog is a Shollie – a Sheltie-Collie mix – and whenever anyone arrives to our home, he barks and barks until he has “herded” everyone into the living room and they are sitting down!  It’s hilarious!
  • I have a great sense of humor that sometimes borders on sarcasm.  But it’s all in great fun!
  • My favorite movies of all time are Gone With The Wind, The Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, Titanic, and Phantom of the Opera.  And call me crazy, but every time I watch the Phantom weeping on the roof of the Paris Opera House while his beloved Christine professes her love for another, I shed a tear and just want to reach into the television and hug him!
  • I love to cook and have friends over for a meal, to play a game or cards, and just have fun hanging out!  My husband loves my cooking but every now and then I have a disaster.  (I recently cooked cabbage way too long, to the point that it could not be used for cabbage rolls!  But Plan B kicked in and we had spaghetti and meatballs that night!)

All of this translates into giving YOU the wedding or event of your dreams!  And I will always hold fast to my commitment to help you plan your day … 

With Tender Loving Care!

 

Hello, I’m Rachel!

I’m the creative wheel behind the scenes, I love all things design, and find it so exciting to bring your story to life.  I began college at Purdue University and am completing my education at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.  I am inspired by the fascinating minds of children and am currently working as a Lead Toddler Teacher at a local daycare.  I spend much of my time very involved in the activities and programs at my church.  In fact, I am now enrolled with the Meadville-Lombard Theological Seminary to pursue my dream of becoming a minister.

In my role as Lead Assistant, I ensure that everything on your wedding or event day runs smoothly by overseeing everything that needs to be done and directing the other Coordination Assistants. I have an eye for detail and have experience in the event industry, having worked in the Catering Department at Purdue as a Waiter Captain and Student Trainer.

A Few Fun Facts About Me…

  • I began crafting at a very young age and enjoy bringing your vision to life by creating unique and beautiful centerpieces and decor.
  • I am a “Whovian” and love the Dr. Who series.  I even crocheted the Doctor’s scarf — not a big deal for someone who never crocheted before.  And … it’s only 22 feet long!  I can even write in Gallifreyan (the Doctor’s language) and have written “No Man Is An Island” (John Dunn) in that language.  I have it memorized, too!
  • Star Trek (current movie series and Next Generation) and the Marvel comics movies are among my favorites – and I love Spock, Data and the Black Panther the most!  “Live long and prosper!”
  • I was a member of my high school color guard with the marching band, and became one of the captains during my senior year.  I still find myself picking up pencils and spinning them just like I did with the guard flags.

Now that you've met us, we'd love to hear your story....
