For me, God really put the passion in my heart to start a venue back in my senior year in college, which is when I wrote my business plan. It really does go that far back!! I have always enjoyed European gardens, and I studied the Gardens of Versailles in college which actually became my inspiration for The Gardens of Cranesbury View. I have been involved with weddings for 29 years, and I love every aspect of the business, but mostly, I love the interactions with the couples and their families. Flowers have always been a love for me as well, so being able to help my couples with their flower needs is a bonus. I grew up in California and attended Cal Poly State University, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Horticulture, then moved to Texas with a promotion while working with Monrovia Nursery Company, and I have loved living in Texas for the last 22 years! I am extremely grateful to work with such a wonderful, passionate team who enjoys this work as much as I do, and I am honored by my brides and grooms who allow me to host the most important day of their lives at The Gardens of Cranesbury View.
