I am so tickled and honored to have been invited to be part of this wonderful family that is Weddingbee Pro! I hope to bring you lots of inspiration and great information that may be of use while you prepare for your big day. I will also share details of my wedding along with some stories about working in the wedding industry (which is a new path for me) and anecdotes about the lovely people I get to work with.
Well, now that we got that out of the way, I will tell you a little more about myself. I was born in a small fishing town called Chimbote in Peru, and I moved around quite a bit since the age of 10. From Peru to Mexico then Virginia and finally New York, and Brooklyn has been my home for the past 4 years. I moved to New York to attend the one year Textile/Surface Design program at the Fashion Institute of Technology and never left. I have an interior design background and I love fashion and the city is perfect for that. I was part of the Hable Construction team for 7 years and enjoyed going to work every day because it was just so fun to work around such creative women. I have incredible parents who sacrificed everything to get my sisters and me to a better place, a loving husband who keeps me grounded and supports everything I do, and a beautiful baby boy who loves to blow kisses.
I am enamored with color. I love pink and metallic gold (it’s the Latina in me), and I have the pleasure of working with the best quality of felt out there — that is Hungarian wool felt. It’s soft, it comes in fun colors, and you can do so much with it and not worry about it fraying! It’s great!!
Thanks so much to Weddingbee Pro for allowing me to share my story with your readers and thank y’all for reading!
