Joie de vie! - It means "The joy of life." I was born and raised in South Louisiana, in the heart of Acadiana. Joie de vie is a word synonymous with Louisiana French Culture. It's a culture passionate about life, family, friends, food, music and keeping that unique heritage alive and well. Now that I live in the beautiful state of Georgia, I still keep my Louisiana roots deep in my spirit. The same love of life and culture I grew up with now translates into how I approach all weddings and events that I work on. They are passionate celebrations! Cultures combine, families and friends come together to rejoice a new union or celebrate a special occasion. Good food is savored, music fills the air as guests dance the night away, share stories and laughter, all while enjoying the hospitality shown to them.
Because I love your wedding, I love when I get to tell you it's time to walk down the aisle. I love seeing your groom's face as he sees you for the first time. It's priceless! I love the moments when friends and family share their stories about you and your groom, how they love you and want you both to be so happy. I love when you dance with your Dad. I always get a little teary-eyed myself. I imagine he is telling you that he loves you and you will always be his little girl. Seeing your mother so happy and most of all, so very proud of you, warms my heart. I am sure their hearts are praying for a lifetime of love and a life well lived for both of you.
Because I love your celebration, I am just as excited as you are about the planning process and making your event as beautiful, as spectacular and as memorable as it can possibly be! I enjoy those few hours of lovely, organized chaos that ensue the day of the event, as all the pieces come together to complete my creative vision and a reflection of your dreams. It is thrilling for me to see the delight on your face when you catch that first glimpse of the finished product during the "grand reveal".
Being a part of all this is my passion and I do not take it lightly. It is such an honor and privilege to be entrusted with your life's most anticipated moments. I feel truly blessed to be in a business where I am constantly surrounded by people in love and celebrating joie de vie!
