I grew up surrounded by the ultimate love story. My parents. Above anything else this made me a complete sucker for anything related to saying I do. As an old soul who truly adores a good old-fashioned love story, logging into Style Me Pretty everyday never feels like a job.

My past life was spent in the advertising world, and those years ultimately left me with a passion (or perhaps borderline obsession) with great design, photography,typography and an appreciation for the details. All of which transferred beautifully into the world of weddings.

My husband and I live with our crazy dog in a small, coastal town in Rhode Island where kids still ride their bikes to school and the milk man comes every Tuesday. Little things like that make me so incredibly happy.
