What do you think is essential for any wedding?

A real personality. Don’t follow expectations -- follow your vision. This includes music, dance, food, drink, rituals, religion, customs, and energy. Because ultimately, when a wedding has personality, planning becomes easy…and the wedding becomes yours.

What is something you constantly strive for?

As you can imagine, I talk about what people can do with their hair styles a lot. However, I aim to do far more than just create pretty hair. I believe I can transform the way people experience the most important days of their lives (and, for many people, that happens to be their wedding day!). Ultimately, I strive to build a brand where my clients don't have to stress over the details, but actually have the space to absorb the day -- and cherish it.

What sets your brand and business apart?

I have an unparalleled personal touch. Of course, I will make sure you feel stunning, however I will go far beyond that. You will be camera ready at every moment: from your engagement photo shoot, to your first look, between outfit changes, all the way to your evening look and first dance. I will be there, ready, to ensure the flow of your day is not just smooth, but perfect.

What's the most gratifying part of your business?

It sounds cliché, but I mean it honestly: the joy I bring my clients. That’s it.
