About Us

I am so lucky to live and work in such a beautiful, magical place as Lummi Island. After many years of weddings and events in big hotels and convention centers, the island is such a breath of fresh air. To dial back and scale down and really smell the roses is truly a joy!


The Carriage House Gardens is at once elegant, funky, and charming. It has taken 8 years to restore the lovely old buildings and create the lush gardens―an endless labor of love―and it’s our great pleasure to share it with our guests.

My entire professional career has been about flowers, interior design, food, and wine. Now, on a smaller scale, I have combined all of my talents and experience to provide a unique and personalized venue. I enjoy creating all types of parties and events, but frankly, I have always been and will remain hopelessly, romantically, partial to weddings.


We can’t do many, and we can’t do huge ones, but we can help you create the day you’ve always dreamt of. There are no “packages” here. No set menus. Every event is individually designed according to your wishes. None of the photos in this website are “stock images”. They are all of real people and events hosted recently by the Carriage House.


Please call and speak with me personally about your plans. Yes, we could email―but I can’t get sense of who you are from a computer.   


I look forward to talking with you.
