When I was a young girl, I did not dream of the big wedding, the dress, or even the perfect guy. Instead, I was working at my mom's jewelry business with brides who were looking for Swarovski bridesmaid bracelets and a set of earrings that matched their dress. Starting at the young age of 13, we traveled CT meeting brides at bridal shows who were looking for the perfect team of vendors to work with them on their big day.
When I was 18, I decided to go to school for marketing to follow my passion for business and sales. When I went off to school, my mom moved and Trinkets by Teri was just a fond memory of mother-daughter bonding, and an experience I will always cherish.
I worked in marketing throughout college, building a lot of experience that led me to a successful career in project management, where I now work as a Senior Account Strategist at an agency in New Haven, CT. I've lead hundreds of creative projects each year for big name clients like Capital One and Spectrum.
No matter what clients and projects were thrown my way, I still craved the smiles on brides faces when they find the perfect set of pearl jewelry. I missed talking with brides, hearing the vision for their big day. I missed hearing the stories of how they met their groom or bride-to-be.
In 2017 the love of my life proposed, starting my own wedding planning journey. I planned what felt like the entire wedding in the first month, because I was just so excited.
None of the free templates or tools online did my planning justice, so I designed my own. I practically lived on wedding planning Facebook sites, providing advice and guidance to fellow brides...for FUN. And then it hit me. I can share this knowledge with other brides...professionally!
My experience in project management coupled with my experience in the bridal industry makes me the perfect asset to your vendor team. I'm a perfectionist with a "get it done" attitude, so you can expect the same attention to detail in your wedding planning.
When I'm not in wedding planning or project management mode, I am actually a big dork who likes wine, board games, cuddling with my cat, or playing with my puppy.
I like to laugh-- a lot--so I'm usually cracking bad jokes and laughing at myself, which Nick finds pretty embarrassing.
I'm not much fun at parties because instead of talking to people, I'm usually the first (and last) to hit up the buffet. Food is everything.
Exercise isn't my thing, but I wish it were. I sometimes imagine myself on the elliptical, which is better than not thinking about it, right?
I'm basic in a lot of ways but one--my passion for THIS. I cannot wait to get to know YOU and help make your wedding a special reflection of you and your soon-to-be bride or groom! Let's do this!
