Favorite part of a wedding: My favorite part of a wedding is listening to the speeches because they are always entertaining and usually funny.

Which three words best describe you: Spontaneous, outgoing, and dedicated.

What are your favorite hobbies: Anything to do with sports, cars, music and the outdoors.

Favorite sports to watch: My favorite sports to watch are football, racing and basketball.

What makes you laugh: Things that make me laugh are babies, other people laughing, good jokes and good one-liners.

Favorite vacation spot: My favorite vacation spot so far would be Jamaica.

Favorite quote: “I always prefer to believe the best of everybody; it saves so much trouble” -Rudyard Kipling and “A woman’s guess is much more accurate than a man’s certainty.” -Rudyard Kipling

Favorite movie: I have a million favorite movies, but some of them are Dazed and Confused, Home Alone, The Toy Story trilogy, The Friday trilogy, Lion King, Dances With Wolves and many more!

Favorite music genre: It is hard to pick a favorite genre of music but I listen to classic rock, country and hip-hop the most. I also love some good soul music!

Pearls of Wisdom: Wisdom is the sharing of wise experiences and knowledge, but a lot of it is common sense. The difference is how we apply this common sense – we all have the ability to keep going even when we face challenges in our lives – basically it comes down to your attitude. We can have a positive attitude towards life, or a negative attitude. We can focus on the good or we can focus on the bad. Keeping a positive mental attitude is one of the keys to success. The choice is always up to you!

If you weren’t in your current profession, what would you do instead: If I was not in my current profession, I would probably be doing construction full-time and trying to take night classes to finish college.

What’s the best advice you can give to a couple when planning their wedding: The best advice I can give a couple would be to stick it out through all of the frustrations that pop up while while planning a wedding. It goes by quick, so make sure you take the time to enjoy the entire experience. If you pick the right vendors to work with, then you have very little to worry about. Also, remember that it is all about YOU and nobody else!
