Stephanie graduated Magna Cum Laude, from the nationally accredited, Fashion Institute of Technology, State University of New York, where she received an Associate's degree in Visual Presentation & Exhibition Design, along with a Bachelor's degree in Visual Art Management. Her educational background and world experience has made her well-versed in the concept of design and business management. During her years of study at FIT, Stephanie lived in upper westside Manhattan where she worked as a Design Assistant for Sheridan & Co., an upscale and specialized, full-service retail design agency based in Soho, NY. During her final semester of college, she interned at the Museum of Arts & Culture in New Rochelle, NY, where she worked alongside Art Director, Theresa Kump Leghorn, to design and co-curate art exhibits. Here, she designed and co-curated an exhibit titled "Reflections of Change," which celebrated 50 years of desegregated schools within the community of New Rochelle...A decision that was based on an infamous case known as the "Taylor Case." The exhibit featured the attendance of New Rochelle's Mayor Noam Bramson, and a front section of the Journal News. Subsequently, upon graduating from FIT, Stephanie completed a course in Wedding Planning and was issued her certificate by the internationally accredited ICOES.
Upon completion of her studies, she has embarked on a journey of fulfilling her passions by working alongside an array of upscale clientele to make their most meaningful life-events a truly memorable experience. Excitingly, several of her events have been featured in notable event publications, such as The Coordinated Bride, Kara’s Party Ideas, Catch My Party, and Itty Bitty Milestones. Stephanie and her team understand that creating a successful event can be quite the undertaking, which can quickly become overwhelmingly stressful for those who are too busy and do not have the time to facilitate an event, nor want to compromise on refined style, sophistication, nor the logistics involved when putting the event together. Stephanie and her team are experts in streamlining full wedding and event facilitation all to ensure that their clients have no worries.
One of Stephanie's most admirable attributes is her ability to deliver a creative yet personalized approach to each event.
