My love for weddings started at a very young age. I remember being 5 years old and attending my first wedding I loved the flowers, the beautiful bridesmaids in their matching early 90s dresses, and then of course the gorgeous bride, floating down the aisle to the love of her life. For the next 15 years I saved every wedding program from every wedding I attended, I was hooked! I started collecting bridal magazines when I was 12 years old and to this day I still love reading bridal magazines and blogs to discover the latest trends and styles.
When I was 16 I started working for a wedding caterer and loved being a part of a couples wedding day. In 2008 I completed my wedding planning certification through the Longevity Wedding Planning Institute. I started off coordinating close friends’ weddings and after that continued to coordinate several weddings a year until I got married in 2011. Planning my own wedding was a dream come true! I will admit it was difficult handing over everything on the day of my wedding to my two wedding coordinators but I completely trusted them to do everything that I had planned. I took a year off to get settled into married life and then in 2012 I started my wedding planning business Weddings by Hannah. In addition to my wedding planning business I also work as a corporate event planner for a wealth management firm in Downtown Seattle.
