From the Desk of Desirae: Meet Desirae

I am Desirae, a Personal Planner at Kate & Company. I grew up in Flagstaff, AZ and travelled down to the Phoenix area to attend Arizona State University (Go Devils!). I got my degree in Supply Chain Management and a certificate in Special Event Management. Lucky for me, after graduation I got a job I LOVE! I get to work on a wide range of events including graduation parties, anniversary celebrations, birthday parties, and weddings – and I have to admit, I really love the wedding planning. I love to work with brides, grooms, and families to make wedding-day dreams come true; whether that be planning the perfect décor, tackling a DIY project, or being there the day-of a wedding to make sure everything runs smoothly! One of my favorite things about weddings is that each one is unique and always tells the story of the couple. I adore seeing their personalities shine through on their wedding day. It doesn’t matter if I’ve known a couple for an hour or years, I am guaranteed to cry at a wedding!

With all the busy wedding planning I do on a daily basis, I have to admit, I’ve put one of my brides on the back burner – Me! Yes, I am engaged and under a year away from my own wedding. As I spend this year planning my Kate & Company weddings at work, I will be planning my wedding at home. As a planner planning my own wedding (no pressure, right?), I’m hoping to share tips/tricks and stories to help fellow brides along the way.

I completely understand what all couples go through from the moment they say ‘Yes!’ I can’t wait to share my story with you!
