A Youngstown native, Angela has always had an eye for details and the finer things in life. She learned hands-on how to host an event from her mother, who was always the first to offer their home as a space to hold bridal and baby showers for family friends when she was a child.  She entered the wedding planning industry after difficulty finding a planner in the Youngstown area to execute the vision for her wedding in 2017. Although she ended up hiring a planning team from out of town, she felt that a more profound connection was missing with her planning team as a bride. Months after her wedding, while planning an event to host at her home, she had an epiphany to start her own business that is the perfect blend of a working relationship with clients and a lifelong friendship. 

Today, Angela uses her calm demeanor and the utmost attention to detail to serve our clients with the highest level of professionalism and ease. She is the queen of timelines and organization, ensuring your day is entirely stress-free. Her unmatched creativity and eye for design allow her to curate weddings and events that blend classic and unique. 

Most importantly, Angela believes that your marriage will be even more beautiful than your wedding, and she’ll never stop cheering you on! When she’s not planning weddings, you can find her spending time with her husband, Dan, and their two puppies, Keiko and Archie, or venturing to a new city to explore, often with all three accompanying her!
