who we are


An extroverted, auntie of four, and dog mom to the cutest pup, Toby! I married the love of my life, Eric, in May 2023 and definitely learned a thing (or two!) from being both a planner and a bride!
My calendar is color-coded and my coffee cup is always full. I'm happiest when surrounded by my family and friends, any body of water, or where wine and cheese can be found. 

Most people think Lynn is my last name, but it's actually my middle name!


Owner + lead planner

My love for wedding planning came from planning my own wedding back in 2015 to my husband Matt! We said "I do" on my family's Christmas Tree Farm and fell in love with the process from there! 

My favorite part of a wedding day is helping the bride down the aisle, fluffing her dress perfectly before she walks! 

When I'm not working weddings, you can find me running my own cleaning business and spending time with my family!

Ever since I stumbled upon Pinterest as a young girl, I've adored the world of wedding planning. With a keen eye for detail and an unyielding dedication to creating unforgettable moments, I’ve found my true passion in bringing dreams to life.

One of the highlights of every wedding for me is that magical moment when the bride takes her first step down the aisle, and I steal a glance at the groom's face. The raw emotion and genuine love from him in that instant never fails. 

When I'm not helping with the perfect wedding day, you'll often find me near the beach (hopefully). With a book in one hand and the hope that food is near, there's nowhere else I'd rather be.

I love the creativity, love, and light that weddings bring. With my background being in healthcare full time, the creativity of weddings brings a welcomed change of pace. 

My favorite part of the wedding is looking at the groom’s face when the bride walks down the aisle. 

When I’m not working a wedding you will find me in my flower and vegetable gardens, along with being a physical therapist. I absolutely love plants.

Wedding planning quickly became a love of mine after helping 2 of my siblings plan their weddings!

I love every aspect of it and there is nothing like seeing a couple's vision come to life for their special day!

From the second we booked her services, she was nothing short of helpful and sweet while navigating the wedding planning process. Her organization is NEXT LEVEL, and the communication between her and us, and her and our vendors was incredible.
