hello lovely

I have such a love and passion for celebrating life’s special moments, big and small.  Being a DC wedding and event planner, I believe that we are only here once – we should live life as a party and celebrate every little moment! When I founded Sparkling Events & Designs, LLC,  I wanted our firm to completely reflect what I’m all about:  Love. I believe that Love is found in the details.  When you approach your clients with trust, respect and compassion; the most beautiful relationships are born.  That is the philosophy that drives this business and my heart today. I have worked in the IT industry for over 19 years where the majority of my responsibility and experience were with project and quality management.  It was my job to ensure that multi-million dollar projects are completed on time, within budget, and with the highest quality possible. These skills have given me an innate ability to pay close attention to every detail and execute a project flawlessly. We seek to help our clients stay on budget, without sacrificing quality and style. Contact us today for your initial consultation.
