I am a 25 year old planning a wedding on a budget within a year! When I’m not wedding planning, I work full-time in social work with individuals who have autism & developmental disabilities. I am a fun-loving, always singing/dancing, happy-go lucky type who is really close with her family and friends - i really want that vibe to carry into my wedding. My FH & I have been together since Nov. 2017, some people will say thats a short time, but when you know, you know! I can’t picture my life with anyone else.

Happily married 🎉
