I’ve been reading wedding magazines since middle school and with dreams of one day writing for Brides, The Knot or Martha Stewart Weddings, I majored in Mass Communication at Winthrop University. My senior year I landed my dream internship with Carolina Bride magazine and I knew I had found my purpose. I loved everything about working for the bridal magazine!
Fast forward to post-graduation, I spent a year in my home state of South Carolina working in public relations. During this time is when I began wedding planning. A year later, a job offer brought me to North Carolina and as I transitioned to my new position, I continued to plan weddings.
After my first bridal party experience I was inspired to create what is now Refined Grace. I knew that this business, in addition to wedding planning would be the only way that I could spend my days completely consumed in the wedding industry. I am so grateful for this journey, thankful for amazing clients and beholden to God’s grace for getting to this point. This is my dream.
