Ready to learn more about this savvy Atlanta native?

  • Favorite outdoor Sunday activity in Atlanta: I love to have a picnic in Piedmont Park or take my dog to the dog park.
  • Favorite Atlanta place to take your dog:  Piedmont Dog Park, but I want to try Fetch Park in Buckhead Village.
  • Best dining in Atlanta: Barcelona Wine Bar has amazing Spanish food, but my love for Ethiopian trumps it all, especially Feedel Bistro!
  • Best place to meet someone for a drink: Foxtrot Liquor Bar and Tiki Tango in Midtown are always a good time.
  • Drink of choice? Whiskey and freshly squeeze orange juice with muddled mint.

  • Favorite Atlanta music venue: It would have to be the Tabernacle because I have such great memories there, and you can see big-name artists at close range.
  • Favorite place to take out-of-town guests: There are so many, but we have to eat on Buford Highway, walk the Atlanta BeltLine, and explore somewhere abandoned.
  • Favorite local hiking spot: Providence Canyon in Lumpkin about 2 hours from Atlanta – it’s the closest you get to the Grand Canyon on this side of the U.S.
  • One hidden gem you think more people should know about: The bamboo forest on the East Palisades Trail is such a beautiful spot to hike and have a cute date.
  • What is your earliest memory about a party? When I was maybe 10, my mom put together a murder mystery party for my birthday and it was the COOLEST thing ever! It still gets randomly mentioned by my close friends to this day. Actually, the next party I throw will be a murder mystery.

The next party after her fall 2022 wedding, we hope!

  • Favorite current event trend: I love all the round edges and use of organic shapes and objects. Dried flowers when done tastefully are a great long-lasting arrangement.
  • Most craveable party food: Bacon-wrapped anything
  • Favorite Flower Peonies! They are just the perfect combination of delicate and bold. I am also a sucker for a dried rose.
  • Favorite WM Events party: Black Panther at the High Museum because I got to see the Atlanta Orchestra play the score for the movie live after I designed the VIP cocktail hour. It was such a beautiful night!

And surely no one will disagree with this response:

  • One thing you would change about Atlanta: The traffic!! It’s the wooorst!
