Owner and Creative Director

For the past 10 years, Summer has been planning and designing full-service high production weddings & events as the owner of our sister brand – Orange Door Weddings. With a 25 year career in the hospitality industry, there’s little she hasn’t yet experienced or navigated. Her depth of experience beyond event planning includes bridal fashion, styling, food & beverage management, venue logistics, project management and now event rentals!

She’s passionate about industry education – she’s a frequent speaker at UWL classrooms, attends conferences and continued education certifications and never stops refining her skills.

She believes life is meant to be lived and when not working, she’s traveling with her family – they love to experience new places, culture, food, art, and adventures. Her happy place is at hot yoga or reading on the screened porch, low-fi spa music playing, and being surrounded by animals and nature.
