For us, it’s all about your experience. We’re centered around not only making sure you have an enjoyable time wedding planning, but continue developing our services to give you everything you’ll need to feel organized, excited, and taken care of when your wedding day arrives!
That feeling of a successful wedding trumps all – and we’re here to make that happen.
Being a local never gets old when you live in Southwest Michigan – being near so many things my husband and I love: kayaking, hunting for beach glass and craft brews. We are cuddling our little toddler son, and enjoying being a family of three!
After receiving a bachelor’s in Event Management from Grand Valley State University and being certified in wedding planning, I founded 1928 in 2013, and since have planned over 500 beautiful weddings as the company.
I’m blessed to have a career where I love what I do – and know that I can offer couples a great deal of guidance and knowledge. I thrive on order and organization, all while giving me a creative outlet to execute a vision and flow for the day we’ve spent so much time creating together!
I am no stranger to the wedding scene in Southwest Michigan! As the owner of Schades of Light, producing lighting design for local weddings since 2009, and prior experience as a four-year event captain for one of the leading catering companies in Southwest Michigan, CK Catering, I am proud and honored to have assisted in making more than 300 wedding day dreams come true!
My husband and I have two sons, a daughter, and a very spoiled silver lab, Georgia. In my spare time, my family and I enjoy days on the water and the beach, or spending time at our cabin in Northern Michigan.
I am so grateful to live in beautiful St. Joseph, Michigan, and have a career doing what I love! I look forward to building relationships with couple’s I work with, and being a team in developing a plan and vision for such an important part of their love story!
