I was born and raised in Baltimore County, and now live in Edgewater with my husband, daughter and our pup, Frank! After more than five years of balancing my full-time job as an event professional with Carried Away as my side project, I finally made Carried Away my full time job.
I am self-taught floral designer and proud of it! While I was in an event intern at a large non-profit, I did all fifty centerpieces for our first gala. My bosses took a chance on me and I'd like to say it paid off! I was quickly hired after my internship ended and worked my way up to Director of Events. Throughout my four years there I planned all of our large scale events, which included designing all floral elements for each event. It was at that job I truly learned just how obsessed I am with planning and executing events, as well as floral design.
It sometimes feels like a dream that I am able to take every lesson I've learned over the years and use that to help brides and grooms have their dream wedding. I feel so lucky that I am able to play just a small role in someone's big day.
Whether it's a small holiday dinner party or your wedding, I'd love the opportunity to help make it perfect!
