I am not a full-time wedding planner. Let’s just get that out there. As my college graduation rapidly approached last year, I started spending some serious time with God about where he wanted me once I’d walked across that stage. At that time, I was employed at Baton Rouge’s Old Governor’s Mansion as an event coordinator, as well as interning under the Event Supervisor there during the week. Wedding planning was, and remains, one of my biggest passions. I thrive in the high paced, always evolving environment, and truly get so much enjoyment out of helping someone remain calm and focused on one of the most important days of their life.  But, for me, it quickly became clear that the lifestyle required to be a wedding coordinator by trade did not coincide with the plans I have for my life. I realized that the late nights and weekends being my most important work time didn’t line up with my deep desires to be a committed wife and mother one day.

So as I sadly walked away from my job at the Old Governor’s Mansion and acquired a 40-hour-a-week day job, I continued to ask God what he wanted me to do with these passion and talents I had in event coordination. That’s where LL&LC was born. It is my outlet (when I can remember to blog), but even more importantly, is a way for brides who are looking for help with their big day to find me.

My largest aspiration in working with a bride for their wedding is that they continue to focus on the fact that while yes, we want this day to be beautiful and wonderful, in the end-they’re still going to be married to their best friend. I greatly enjoy taking the weight and pressure off the bride’s shoulders and handling all of the things that she doesn’t need to be thinking about.
