All About Me!!!

I always try to get to know my brides as well as I can before the wedding. But my brides may not be able to get to know me as well. So I am going to answer a few basics about me, if there is anything, ok well not anything, but something about me you would like to know...ask and I'll answer it. So here we go!

Obviously, Danielle

How long have you been married?
a little over 2 years

Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We spend two weeks in beautiful Maui! I enjoyed every minute of it and would love to go back.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I really enjoy reading, scrapbooking and cross stitching. I sound like a lot of fun, right? But I don't really have time to do any of that since I had a baby.

What are the most important things in your life?
Family comes first and foremost - my husband, my daughter and my dogs. My business comes next, I love every minute of it.

Do you have another job other than planning weddings?
Right now I do. I work as a school secretary. Hopefully, I will not be doing that for too much longer, but it is nice to have something to do in the off there one? I have experienced one too much.

How did you get into wedding planning?
After planning my wedding, I just couldn't let it go. I had been thinking about doing wedding planning for a while, even before I got married. I think going through the whole process helps out in planning, I can still remember all the feelings I had being a bride. I just truly love planning the weddings!

Did you go to school for wedding planning?
I did, I took an online course and am certified. I am also a member of a couple professional wedding planning organizations.

How long have you been planning weddings?
My business is 2 years old and I also planned my own wedding.

How many weddings have you done?
To date, I have done over 30 weddings. This ranges from small 30 people weddings to 450 people weddings.

Where is your favorite place to plan?
I don't think I have a favorite place, but I love the Broadmoor! I have done a couple weddings there and it is just an awesome place. The views, the service and the feel is just wonderful. It feels like a mini vacation for some reason - even just being a vendor, they treat you like a guest. I also love Devil's Thumb Ranch - just so beautiful!

What would you be doing if you weren't planning weddings?
I would love to be a pastry chef! I love to bake, oh gosh do I love it. But I don't do it a lot because we could not eat it all the time. So if anyone ever wants some cupcakes or cookies or cake or tart or or...let me know!

So I think I have covered some basics! If you have another question, ask away!
