 Let's Ditch the Drama, Craft Your Dream Wedding

Remember those Hollywood movie sets I used to wrangle? Turns out, creating stunning backdrops for love stories is way more fun (and rewarding) than wrangling egos!


In 2010, I took a leap of faith and built one of Minnesota's most sought-after barn wedding venues – on a shoestring budget, mind you. Over 300 weddings later, I've seen it all: the meltdowns, the Pinterest spirals, the budget blowouts. But I've also witnessed pure magic – the kind that doesn't need fancy frills, just genuine connection and a heartfelt celebration.

So, I hung up my venue hat and traded in the clipboard for a coaching microphone. Now, I help couples (and venue dreamers!) ditch the wedding industry madness and rediscover the simple joys of planning a day that reflects their love story. Forget the pressure, the trends, the drama. Let's focus on what truly matters: a stress-free celebration that whispers your unique love song, not someone else's Pinterest board.

I'm a nature lover, a sustainability cheerleader, and a firm believer in less is more. I'm also pragmatic, down-to-earth, and always up for a good laugh (even through the inevitable planning hiccups). Whether you're building your dream venue from scratch or navigating the emotional rollercoaster of your "Big Day," I'm here to be your rock, your cheerleader, and your secret weapon.
