Growing up in the small village of Wallkill, nestled in Ulster County NY, I've always felt a pull on my heart to travel, and adventure into big cities, and visit amazing places. I knew the small town girl needed to explore! I've also always been a dreamer, striving always for the best for my life, and my future.
I attended SUNY Orange Community College, directly after graduating high school, (I was homeschooled by my mother), receiving my Associate's Degree in Business Administration, majoring in Legal Studies. I always thought law was the route for me. A sure path to a successful career, but still felt a pull in other directions. "I wish I could own my own business.", a sentence that crossed my mind so many times. Deciding to start my own business, taking the plunge, and just going for it, has been a truly amazing decision, and the experience has been like no other. Always being the planner for events of family and friends, being obsessed with wedding shows, buying wedding magazines, even though I wasn't close to getting married, and landing an internship with a wedding planner, I dreamed of doing this for a living. I wanted this to be my purpose. I soaked up a lot about the wedding industry, have met so many amazing people, continually working on building a solid, A-Team vendor list, and being a Type A, super organized individual, I felt it was time to build my own empire. Always working as the "office assistant" in different industries, office job after office job, I have always known something was missing.
I needed more of a purpose. This was it! Making the most important day in a couple's life exactly what they want it to be, starting the journey on the right foot, helping match couples with the best resources, tools, and professionals to keep the planning process, and wedding day as flawless and stress-free as possible, are all goals that I intend to reach with every couple I work with. I want to know YOUR STORY, and help you project that into YOUR WEDDING.
Now that you know why I do what I do, here's a few fun details about me. I am a major foodie, lover of all things pink, a coffee snob, obsessed with white marble, mother to a fur baby kitty named Missy, and I may be a little bit obsessed with Target's bargain bins!
My mission is to delight, and inspire, and to assist in the process of designing, and planning not just an event, but a memory that your guests will always remember.
I am Kimberlee, mommy of two little boys, and married to a wonderful husband. My boys are what make my world go round. Throughout my life, we moved around a lot. But we always stayed in the Hudson Valley area. Your life is spent dreaming of what you want to be when you grow up. How can we possibly know what we want to be when there are so many choices. I graduated from high school in 2013 with some college courses under my belt, along with some photography classes. I have taken some college courses at SUNY Dutchess. (However, my oldest son had some very serious health issues so my intention was to take care of my baby to the best of my ability.)
Even when trying to pick a major in college it was very hard for me, as I could never decide what exactly I wanted to do. What I did know was, I loved to craft, and I loved helping people with their parties or home decor. My wedding really taught me a lot about the wedding business. I loved every moment of planning my wedding and making it my dream come true. So how did I end up figuring out the wedding business is where I wanted to be? Exactly that, my own wedding. I knew I loved planning events so what could be more perfect than to help couples plan their perfect day and make all their very own visions, and dreams come true for their “Big Day”.
And here I am taking every avenue I can to help make your dreams a reality!
