My desire to seek new experiences and learn about different cultures brought me to Santorini over 27 years ago. From the first moment I arrived, I knew I was home. The Greek people and their way of life, the amazing natural landscape, the glorious sun, and endless blue sea ticked all of the boxes for me.
Over the course of several years and numerous visits to the island, I finally decided to permanently move from the US to Santorini. My background in both social work and hospitality, coupled with my love of people led me into wedding planning, and I soon became a ground breaker in the wedding industry on the island.
20 years later, as an established leader of wedding planning in Santorini, I know the ins and outs of every aspect that goes into the planning process. As a queen of logistics, I take pride in planning each wedding down to the last detail–from the cake and the flower design, down to the wedding day transportation and marriage registration to ensure a worry-free day, executed with precision.
I take pride in my nurturing, personal approach to the process, spending time with each couple to listen to their vision and bring it to life. I put a great deal of thought, passion, and love into each of my weddings, and it brings me such joy to see the happiness on my brides' and grooms' faces on their special day.
There is no better feeling than being a part of making someone's dreams a reality, and I find it so rewarding to be able to do that for my couples here in my favorite place on earth.
