Welcome! I’m Natalie, owner and creative director here at A.K.A Love Events!
Growing up I lived in the “party house”. My parents hosted all the family gatherings, holidays, block parties and legendary pool parties filled with 90s pop music, mouth watering meals and an incredible amount of laughing. They knew how to throw a good party that people would remember for years. No wonder I fell in love with bringing people together, creating an unforgettable experience and making magic happen through all the little yet important details.
In 2013, I graduated from Keiser University with a degree in occupational therapy and went on to work with special needs children for four years as an occupational therapy assistant. During that time, I met so many great people and learned so much about helping children with disabilities. Not only did I learn about occupational therapy but I also learned about who I am and who I want to be. It was during this transition that I realized my heart was in event planning. I would often day dream of owning my own event planning and design business, creating fabulous events, meeting new people, designing floor plans and stunning tablescapes, gorgeous florals that adorned arches and tables, sipping on wine and tasting foods from different cultures, learning calligraphy, traveling, making new friendships and maybe dabble a bit in bridal gown design.
I finally decided to take a leap of faith after my third child was born and became a Certified Wedding Planner through The Bridal Society in 2018. In the same year, I opened A.K.A Love Events and have loved every day of learning, creating, connecting with others, and growing as an mompreneur in this captivating industry.
My goal as your wedding planner is to work with you hand in hand to bring your vision to life with authenticity, kindness and hard work. From consultation day to the “I DO’s”, I will guide you, create with you, have an open ear and help to make your wedding day centered around love, family, and whole lot of fun. I look forward to assisting you in planning an unforgettable event and creating memories and friendships that last a lifetime.
