A fun fact is that my first name is Jacqueline, but I like to use my middle name, Rena.
I've been married to the love of my life, Larry since 1996. We have two children, Isaac and Sarah.
I grew up in New York. I also started my first business in New York. For ten years I owned and operated an off premise catering company.
Bringing people together for celebrations has always brought me joy!
When guests enter the reception area they should be greeted with beautifully set tables and décor. But, even if a well established catering hall is chosen, sometimes they miss the mark. Here's a TRUE STORY. For our 10 year anniversary my husband and I renewed our vows.
Our initial wedding reception was in our church fellowship hall and it was beautiful. For our renewal we went to a fancy venue. But, when we arrived, they had neglected to set our table! Crazy, right?
My point is you may need someone to oversee even a full service catering staff to make sure everything is perfect on your big day.
Probably after the bride, food is the most memorable part of an event. The food has to look good and taste good. My catering background is invaluable to my clients who need assistance choosing food and beverage.
It's always a good idea to find inspiration for choosing a color palette. Floral bouquets are a good place to look for that inspiration.
My interior decorating background means I can advise my clients on color schemes. I learned how important color is in everything. I even wrote a book about color.
When it comes to design one thing builds upon the other. It is so helpful to take a beat and think about what you want your decor to look like. More importantly, how do you want your guests to feel.
After you've answered those two pivotal questions you will be ready to build your design plan; and I will help you.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy!
