Hometown: Baltimore, Maryland
I have planned beautiful weddings and parties for the past 21 years but some of you may know me as “TheWeddingDIVA,” the no-nonsense planner from Style Network’s hit scripted reality show, “Whose Wedding Is It Anyway?” For 10 seasons, I guided brides, grooms and their families through the complicated process of getting to the chapel on time - I’ve had the unique opportunity to come into your homes and show how the magic happens when it comes to saying “I DO!”
I’ll be honest – I love good food. Prepared with loving hands and a sense of taste, the sharing of a meal can be one of the best ways to show people you care. From the little girl who hosted Kool-Aid parties on her front porch to the woman who can whip up gourmet cornbread rounds and savory butters faster than you can blink an eye – my journey to this project has been a long time coming. My hope is that this book will simplify and demystify the “process” of cooking and having folks over – for whatever occasion you like! In each chapter you’ll find an event that you can easily host at home – from the glossy, pretty “after” photos as well as the “guide” through the “before”, complete with recipes, “to do” and prep lists as well as some fab décor/hostessing tips that will make your parties go “POW.” So - are you ready? I know I am. Let’s get started!!!!!
