One of the things I love most about what I do is that I get to help people. With my help, my couples can actually enjoy the wedding planning process. They aren’t completely stressed out or worried. They aren’t wondering if what they’re doing is right.
Instead, they can sit back and relax. They are taken care of and feel confident because they’ve got me to rely on.
And most importantly, they’re happy! They’re happy at a time when they should be happy.
Because that’s what life is all about! Enjoying the moments, making memories and spending time with those you love.

But, sadly I haven’t been able to help everyone.
There have been many couples I’ve had to turn away because they didn’t have the budget for a wedding planner. They wanted help and they knew they needed it. But, they just couldn’t afford it.
I remember distinctly this one couple, Shannon and John and the frustration they were feeling. They didn’t know what they were doing and they were tired of feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. So, they reached out to me to get help.
But, it was clear that they just didn’t have the budget for a wedding planner. And while I did what I could to help guide them in our consultation. I had to let them go.
Knowing exactly what was out there to help them. Unreliable, conflicting and many times inaccurate advice.
And it made me sad.
As a person who wants to help others, it made me sad that I couldn’t help them.
I remember clearly the resignation in their voices. That dread of what was to come, but the knowledge that they didn’t have another choice. That it was just the way it is.
And I found myself asking, does this have to be the way it is? What can I do?
And that was when Passport to Joy was born.
What started as just an idea became a complete wedding planning course based on my 9+ years of experience. A reliable place to turn to if you’re on a budget.

After our first round of Passport to Joy graduates, I spent some time revamping the entire course so that it’s even more helpful.
It also got a little makeover, a blog and we’ve now made the course public! Which means you don’t have to sign up to be on the waitlist anymore, you can become a member instantly.
All of which means you can get help right now!
I’m so excited to share the new Passport to Joy with you. Please come by and check it out here.
And if you want help planning your wedding and you’re on a budget, I hope to see you inside the program! Let’s make planning your wedding a happy experience.
