From One Bride to Another...


Pop the champagne! You're engaged. This is a truly magical time as you get to bask in the spotlight. Soak it all in and let the planning begin. But where do you start? Wedding inspiration comes quickly as you begin to dream up your big day, and I'm here to help you turn those dreams into reality. 

Having planned every detail of my own day from start to finish, and knowing the concerns that came with it, I sought out to become a go-to-gal for St. Louis area brides who wish to have a worry-free wedding. Pairing my passion for weddings plus years of event planning experience, By Your Side was born.
