DOWN-TO-EARTH, but never indifferent 
ELEVATED, but never elitist 
EMPOWERING, but never forceful

INCLUSIVE, but never catch-all 
INSIGHTFUL, but never self-important

PERSONAL, but never flippant 
PLAYFUL, but never elementary 
POSITIVE, but never forced 
SOPHISTICATED, but never pretentious 
WARM, but never affected

As a wedding planner who believes in celebrating every modern love story, I wanted to create a wedding planning platform that is as inclusive as it is beautiful.

Because I believe in bridging the gap and that all couples deserve to be seen, inspired, and celebrated.

I’ve always been someone who wants to do things differently. I live in a tiny house in the Pacific Northwest. I spend my winters in Baja Sur, Mexico. I planned my own wedding for less than $20k. I try to choose a different path because I don’t want to have a typical story and, I don’t think you do either.  

As a wedding and event planner for over 15 years (how is that even possible?), I’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the most madly, deeply in love couples. Their stories are what fuels me and have motivated me to time to create a space centered on celebrating confident, creative, diverse & down-to-earth couples!

In a time where it feels like people plan their weddings just for the ‘gram, I know there is so much more to the world of weddings—so much more to you! My hope is that State of Amor inspires you as much as you inspire me. Come for the unforgettable inspiration and stick around for the inclusive, real-talk approach to wedding planning—curated for and accessible to all!
