Hi there! My name is Vanessa and I am the president and founder of Bridal Affairs. As a Certified Wedding Planner, I have been planning weddings since 2012. But I was the little girl who had her wedding fully planned before I turned five! I love all things related to weddings, including wedding movies, books, magazines, and Pinterest boards.
Choosing wedding colors, flowers or designs all make my heart sing! My heart flutters and I get teary-eyed when brides walk down the aisle to join their spouse in marriage.
Born and raised in Illinois, I moved to North Carolina in 2009, after graduating with a Sociology Degree from NIU. I have northern roots, but I am a southerner by heart. I enjoy sitting in rocking chairs on my porch and sipping lemonade. I am in love with decorating my house, crafting and scrap booking.
I also love to travel internationally and to collect handmade dolls from every country I visit. I am obsessed with anywhere in Europe, particularly Italy. A few countries I have visited are France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Jamaica, Canada, Mexico and Peru. My bucket list includes visiting all 50 states and all the continents. I have also traveled to the Amazon jungle, which was quite the experience!
I love to spend my free time with our son Vance, he is adorable and a blessing to us! Aside from weddings, you may see him on our Instagram Stories (bridalaffairsnc) quite a bit as I am an obsessed mom and I love to share beautiful moments as he grows.
I'm very excited to help you plan your wedding and make it a memorable one!
