I started my career in hospitality  while in school working in the food and events industry. My first job out of college was in Key West at a hotel in event sales. Not only did Key West get under my skin, but so did events. I spent 12 years working resort events in Nantucket, Newport, Salt Lake City (opening for the Olympics) and Key West. While there, I worked at boutique style, high end properties and I really liked the personalized service and culture.

After working for another wedding planning firm in between hotel jobs, I was hooked. I decided that I wanted to start my own business and wedding plan for a living. 

Some have become life long friends. I love seeing all the hard work come together in the end and am so fortunate to be able to do what I love.

"I love creating and being a part of someone's special day as much as I love building relationships with my clients. "

Desiree started in the hospitality industry by first going to culinary school. After finding her way to the front of the house and experiencing the wedding side, she was hooked. She is also one of our month of specialists.  Desiree loves Key West because of the water, sun, sand, trees & roosters! She provides countless moments of laughter and plenty of entertainment.

kind words

They paid attention to every detail while still maintaining their cool and calm personalities. They helped me make decisions and kept me organized when I was starting to feel overwhelmed.  They kept everyone on time with the schedule without making anyone feel rushed (didn't even know that was possible!). The entire bridal party raved about them, and honestly, I could not imagine navigating that last month prior to the wedding without their help. 

Hiring Simply You Weddings to help coordinate your perfect day is a no-brainer.  

They made our wedding day literally perfect. I couldn’t have asked for a better night and know it would not have been the same without all of their help. Highly recommended!

They made our wedding day literally perfect.

Start your planning journey.
