Meet The SwaLaRue Crew

 Preparing for your wedding is an exciting, eventful and emotionally charged season of your life. But preparing for your marriage is the ultimate purpose of your engagement. With SwaLaRue Events, it’s easier to get wedding tasks accomplished. Why? So you’ll have more of those precious moments to prepare for the eternal bond you’ll create when you exchange vows at your ceremony.

I collaborate with you to create an event that transcends the wedding you imagined possible and gives you more time to focus on what’s really important. You’ll be provided with professional guidance and expertise that has applications beyond generating a wedding timeline and floor plan. We perform vendor matchmaking, curate your event designs to infuse your wedding day with glimpses of your love story and hold your hand through every milestone of your wedding planning journey. This is the SwaLaRue Events Experience. I’ll be your advocate and confidant and take the guess work out of wedding etiquette. And most importantly, you’ll receive candid advice so you can make the best decisions for YOUR wedding day.

You can plan your wedding for months, and just when you think you’ve accounted for everything, something can still go wrong. Its our job to react swiftly and smartly in case of the unexpected. One meeting  and you’ll feel like a huge wedding planning weight has been lifted. These are not my words, but theirs.

We can start working with you at any point in your wedding planning process to put your mind at ease. Whether you just got engaged yesterday, or your wedding is 60 days away.

I’ve planned weddings for cultures ranging from Nigerian to Moroccan to Chinese to Filipino to Mexican and Armenian; held everywhere from Houston to New Orleans to Atlanta, to D.C. and Jamaica; in Cathedrals, Barns, Ballrooms, Art Galleries, and National Monuments. And now?

I’m your wedding planner.
