Favorite Musical Artist?

This is hard! I love almost all music. I can narrow it down to genres, my default favorite is probably anything EDM, it gets me so pumped up! R3hab, Armin van Buuren, The Bloody Beetroots, Deorro, bassjackers, and classics like Benny Benassi and Tiesto are on rotation right now. Hip-hop & rap, mellow & whimsical artists like Jack Johnson, Classics like Black Sabbath, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran …I could go on and on and on. It kind of just depends on what I’m doing and what I’m in the mood for at that moment!

What’s your fave part about working with Kramer Events?

My favorite part of working with Kramer Events is the energy of the whole team, everyone has such a positive vibe and there is an overall team goal of making sure that it’s going to be the best experience possible for everyone involved. I love being part of a team that cares about making sure they are at the top of their game, it encourages me to be the best I can too.

Why do you love the wedding industry?

I love the wedding industry because I have a passion for helping people and I can’t think of a better way to do that then on one of the most important days of their lives! It’s so fulfilling being there for support and to help with anything I can. I love watching the details that have been talked about and planned come to life and help execute the vision that each couple has. Every wedding is different and there’s never a dull moment, it’s fun getting to learn new things constantly and have so many different experiences. Seeing those moments like the first look, the initial song change right before the bride walks down the aisle, watching everything that every little girl has dreamed of coming to life is magical.

Favorite moment at a wedding for you? 
My favorite moment that I have experienced at a wedding was this really fun couple, they did the rehearsal the day prior and he walked out with his groomsmen to eye of the tiger. One of the guys mentioned he should do it again for the actual ceremony and I totally thought it was funny, but that they were joking. The next day here come the guys and what song comes on? Eye of the Tiger. The groom had a white hotel towel wrapped around his neck as he came down and he threw it to the bride’s mom right before settling at the altar. Everyone was rolling laughing, including me. It was classic.

How would others describe you?

Positive and always ready to take on anything with a good attitude. High energy–I’m the friend that will pump you up on whatever we are about to do, especially if you aren’t as excited about it as I am. I think they would also say that I’m a good listener, kind, and caring, I try to be a source of good vibes and light with everyone I encounter. Organized (maybe a little too organized, I plan everything) and very driven.
