Welcome! I'm so excited you're here!


Congratulations on your engagement and thank you for checking out our site for your wedding planning needs! Wedding planning can be so exciting, but also a little overwhelming if you don't a have professional at your side. Whether you knew right away that you need a professional planner or you're six months in, you've come to the right place! 


My name is Josie and I'm a Certified Wedding Planner. Over the span of my career I've formed a strong network with some of the best event professionals in the Quad Cities. In addition to event planning and coordination, I have a strong background in hospitality, menu planning and so much more that adds to the level of service and knowledge I'm able to bring to your vision.


My passion is helping people, like YOU, celebrate and be truly immersed in your wedding day and fully experience these important lifetime and celebratory moments. 


Not planning a wedding? You've still come to the right place! I also provide planning services for other social occasions (milestone birthdays, anniversaries, etc), corporate events and nonprofit events.

No matter your event, I’m here to take care of the details, provide a fun and positive planning experience and make your vision become a reality. 


You have found your forever, your soulmate, your best friend, your partner in life and love. You are now planning the biggest, most important day of your life and you want it to be nothing short of perfect, down to every detail.

Allow me to take take that burden from you and put my experience, knowledge, organizational skills and love for helping others to work for you and your wedding day. 

When it comes to weddings I want each of the couples I work with to wake up on their big day knowing that everything is taken care of and they can focus on what matters most - each other and beginning your journey together.

Let's Get Creative

Want to find an extraordinary venue? Maybe you're seeking a new culinary experience or want to bring your travels back home for your friends and family to enjoy? Or maybe you just need a little help finding the perfect and memorable way to 'Pop the Question'!

I innately think outside of the box and I have a really hard time saying no to amazing ideas. Creating sophisticated, yet unique experiences for my clients and their guests is my jam! Creative events work best for a more intimate setting and for a variety of occasions. Let me bring your vision to life and create an event like no other. 

Corporate & Non-Profit Events

I have worked with several corporate and non-profit organizations

from within and outside of the Quad Cities.

Small Businesses

Large Corporations

Non-Profit Organizations

Employee Appreciation Events

Holiday Parties

Multi-Day Seminars & Conventions



Micro Events

A micro event is perfect for any occasion that you want to share with only your closest family, friends or associates. These events are perfect for intimate wedding ceremonies and celebrations, birthdays, wedding showers, and corporate gatherings. 

"Micro" does not mean simple. You can have a "micro" event in a really big way. It's the perfect opportunity to go all out on detail, decor, libations and cuisine to provide an intimate, memorable evening for you and your guests.
