Best piece of advice to someone new to the wedding industry

It’s like the Mafia. You can get in, but you can never get out! Haha! Just kidding. My best advice is to ask questions of the veterans and learn from the answers.

Best piece of planning advice to a new bride

Don’t get to ensconced in the details. Remember, all you have to do by the end of the day is get married. If all your plans go out the window and you still accomplish that, you have succeeded.

Everything happens for a reason.

Best tip for balancing work + home life

Try to minimize the crossover of the two.
