The Small Details
Liesel’s inspiration for Knotted Up came from the numerous details that she had to tie together while planning weddings for family and friends. She enjoyed the thrill of orchestrating the entire performance, creating a perfect picture while the bride and groom concentrated on the sole task of enjoying their special moment. She likes to design weddings the same way a broad way producer approaches a play- ensuring that the stars always shine and the guests always go home wanting more.
To her, being a wedding planner is about much more than spreadsheets and timetables. It’s about being a friend and confidante. It’s about listening and guiding. It’s about inspiring and creating. This is not only a time to plan a celebration; it is a time to celebrate the planning. To be a part of all this is what allows her to live her dream every day.
