Hello there and welcome! I am so excited that you've found your way to the Plan + Simple site. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work with you to make that special moment in your life even more magical. Letting someone take over a big celebration - your wedding day, your graduation, your retirement party - can be a huge and overwhelming decision! Watching someone else take charge while you sit back might be hard for some people. I must admit that I can be one of them! I hope to make things a little easier by telling you a bit about me. I am a huge believer in the importance of relationships, and I really love meeting my clients, learning their stories, and getting to know them well throughout the process. It's only fair that I keep up my end of the bargain!
For starters, family is my absolute first priority in life. I'd love to introduce you to my little (and growing) family.
Meet Christian: My husband, Christian, is my number one supporter. He loves good music, bad pizza, baseball, and riding roller coasters with me in the summertime. We were married recently, in 2018, but we've known each other for most of our lives. I can always count on Christian to listen and offer his advice when I need it. Getting a man's perspective when it comes to event planning has been a huge plus! He's my best friend, and I am eternally grateful for him!
Meet Marley: Marley is a sweet and spunky girl who we adopted during our year spent living in Alexandria, Virginia. Being far away from the rest of our family, we decided to add Marley to our clan. She is a great cuddler, learns so quickly, and is always guarding the house. It's amazing how well she has fit in to our family!
Meet Baby: Yes, we have a little one on the way! We're so excited to welcome our baby boy into the world in August of 2019. Expecting our first child is exciting, and admittedly, a little nerve wracking! We could not be more excited, though, to watch our family grow.
Meet Sherlock & Trixie: Last, but not least, meet our two adorable little bunnies. When Christian and I moved in together, one of the first things we did was adopt our bunny, Sherlock. For a while, he was content being our little buddy, but he soon got bored and turned into an escape artist, hopping out of his pen and around the house when we weren’t home. We thought he may need a friend, so we took him to our local shelter on a few “bunny dates” before he and Trixie hit it off. She joined the family, the two are happy together, and Sherlock is glad to stay in his cage now that his girlfriend is with him!
Meet Me: Hi, I’m Courtney! I love to read, spend time in the sunshine, and add new little hobbies to the long list of things that keep me entertained - bullet journaling, hand lettering, creating my own fonts, knitting - you name it, and I will surely want to give it a try if I haven’t already! I have always loved children, and I work with a nonprofit organization teaching after-school robotics to underserved youth.
I love traveling, and Christian and I aim to sneak in a little trip whenever we can! We were actually married in Negril, Jamaica, and we’re looking forward to the day when we make it back to the islands. I love to sing and dance, even though I’m not very good at either one. My latest projects include learning to play the piano and making some small updates in our home before baby boy arrives. I’m a busy girl, and I like it that way! Life has so much to offer, and I don’t want to miss a thing.
Now that you know a little bit about me, I can’t wait to connect and learn more about you! I’m always super excited for the opportunity to be a part of those important days in my clients’ lives. Sharing in special moments with others is something I care very deeply about, and I would be honored to help you make your vision come to life. The Plan + Simple team is always excited to make someone’s big day the best day ever, and we hope to hear from you soon!
