Hi, I'm Casey!
Most days you can find me in yoga pants, working at the computer with a hot cup of coffee in my hand, and my pets at my feet. I'm a wife to my husband Eduardo, and mom to four furchildren- White Fang, Duke, Maximus Prime and Gemma. If that last sentence didn't clue you in, I'm obsessed with my pets and would probably be an animal hoarder if I didn't have
a husband self-control. Halloween is my favorite season (yes, season!) and is now even my wedding anniversary. I dig anything that gets my creative juices flowing- drawing, singing, writing, photog-ing, painting, and DIY-everything. I'm happiest when I'm celebrating holidays or going to festivals- thank goodness I live in NOLA! Cuddling up with my pets and a good book on a rainy day is my heaven. And I am an eternal student, who believes that you're never too old to learn something new.
It only took a year and a half after my first visit to officially call NOLA home. I immediately fell in love with the colorful vibe and unique culture that is this city's heartbeat. With outside-the-box thinking, a 'no judegment' mentality, and practically dripping with authenticity, it's safe to say that NOLA is a pretty inspiring city (wedding inspiration included!). And, I can't put my finger on it, but something about this place just fits me.
I'm a wedding blogger/crafter/planner and beyond (ninja of all trades), who believes that your wedding should always have the most important element at it's core- YOU. I 100% endorse throwing out old traditions that don't fit your beliefs, staying within a budget that is comfortable for you, and embracing your left of center tendencies (ie letting your inner weirdo out!).
I'm here to work with you- within your budget- to help cultivate your style and vision into a truly epic event.
