IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT... taking a day trip up to Santa Ynez for an afternoon spent wine tasting, relaxing in the sun and enjoying a few hours away from the city.
MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS... being packed into an SUV with 6 other people - and luggage - as we road tripped around the "Ring Road" in Iceland for 10 days. It was by far the craziest road trip of my life, but also one of the most magical experiences I'm sure I will ever have.
THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS... Thailand.
WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS... being surrounded by so much love and joy. It's one of the few jobs in the world where you get to be immersed in celebration, love and happiness. It's a rare gift, and I'm incredibly thankful for it.
IF I DIDN'T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE/DO... own my own floral shop.
IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE... go with your heart. You're going to get a lot of advice and opinions, some wanted and some not, on how to plan your wedding. But if you want to look back 10 years from now and know that your wedding was a beautiful representation of who you both are, stay true to what is most important to you, no matter what anyone else says.
I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE... I get the best of both worlds. Los Angeles provides the city life that I love, but it's also close to the beach, mountains, desert and countryside. I get it all!
IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE... Tuscany, without a doubt.
MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? Bill Cunningham New York. It's an inspiring documentary about a man who has lived a life full of passion and purpose... and a little flare to boot.
MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I'VE EVER EATEN WAS... the dinner at my own wedding, actually! It was the perfect combination of atmosphere, incredible food and good company. I can still hear the laughter and feel the warmth and joy from that evening.
