Hi there!  After moving to the Outer Banks from the DC area "just for the summer" 9 years ago, I  found myself calling it home shortly after. I started Heart of Harlow in 2015 and it became my full time job the next year.  As the owner of Heart of Harlow, I am usually the one you are communicating with, I create the timelines, and I am sometime still the lead on site day of- although now we have an amazing team of coordinators as we grow.  


After assisting an Outer Banks floral designer for two years, I discovered the need for day of coordinators as I met countless brides who had already planned their wedding and knew what they wanted their day to look like, but needed someone to get them down the aisle, direct guests and coordinate vendors day of.  I quickly found my calling.  I love connecting with couples and executing their event so all they have to worry about is enjoying their day. 

I have coordinated over 100 Outer Banks weddings, and have traveled as close as DC and as far as the Bahamas.  My hope is to connect with you so you have a professional on your side the day of your wedding. If you want to get to know me more personally, let's connect on Instagram where I over-share my love for weddings, our Blondie girl, and  fixer upper style beach homes.
