wedding planning world with both feet. I secured an internship at Simply Chic and spent the next six years working my way up the ranks—from month-of wedding planner to associate planner to senior planner and wedding designer—before eventually becoming the owner (my favorite role to date!).

Whether I’m cooking up a six-course storm for my Italian family (bring on the truffle risotto and Great Grandma’s sauce) or helping two inspiring people celebrate the beginning of their new life together, I always create from a place of connection. I firmly believe that empathy, understanding, and an open heart are the magic ingredients for making something that’s not just beautiful—but meaningful. Today, there’s nothing I love more than using my honed eye for design and innate “people person” spirit to ensure yours is a celebration of love unlike any other on Earth.


Hi, friend—I’m over the moon that you found this boutique planning-and-design family we call Simply Chic!

As someone who was born and raised in a big, warm Italian family, hosting and generosity have been a cornerstone of my joy for as long as I can remember. When friends would come over for sleepovers, I had to make everything special—from the design of the room to the “tasting menu” for the night. As I got older, carefully curated sleepovers turned into stunning dinner parties and high-quality happy hours at my house. I soon found myself the go-to organizer who was asked to plan every gathering and girls’ trip for our friend group (and you can bet my planning was always complete with timed-out itineraries to keep everyone on track).

Right out of college, I followed my calling for planning purposeful celebrations and jumped into the luxury

On My Days Off

an incredible amount about professional discretion and high-touch service (clients included high-ranking politicians and dignitaries)—and I now have the joy of relying on those lessons every day as I plan multifaceted celebrations for discerning couples with high-design dreams.

Today, my heart is most fulfilled when planning social events and weddings that include thoughtful design elements and personal touches. Whether it’s an intimate farewell brunch or a multi-day destination wedding, there’s no greater joy than the reward I get from crafting immersive experiences and defining moments for my couples and their closest friends and family (...though purchasing another summer dress—that I definitely do not need—comes in as a close second).


From a young age, I’ve always been transfixed by the feeling that comes as a result of transforming an ordinary moment into an extraordinary occasion. Whether it was the beginning of spring or the start of the weekend, my mother and grandmother never hesitated to pull out the fine china, throw on their best dress, and make a beautiful moment out of what others might find mundane. Their innate love for elevating the everyday instilled in me the desire to create these same “dream worlds”—and the warm feelings they result in—for others one day.

I went on to work for one of the nation’s 100 largest law firms, where I spent more than a decade honing my logistical prowess and planning large-scale corporate events for Fortune 500 companies. The experience remains one of the most invigorating of my life and taught me
