Hi , I'm Tia!  And the main thing you should know is that there are few things that I love more than weddings.  Although, my family and two German Shepherds rank pretty high up there too, weddings really are my passion.

I began my career in Hospitality Management and loved the fast paced and exciting enviornment that restaurants offered.  It was there that I started to find my passion for working with events.  Continuing to grow and develop in my field, I moved up the ranks in management quickly.  Things like vendor management and budget control became some very highly refined  skills that I carry with me to this day.   

    As I began to work with resorts, I saw more and more the chaos and stress that couples were going through with planning their events and then trying to execute them all by themselves.  I fully believe that this is the day of all days that as a bride and groom or even parents of the couple, you should be sitting back and enjoying the day and not working on all the details.  Someone else should be there to take any snafu's that might occur and know how to quickly turn them around without anyone ever knowing anything about it.       

With the combination of planning events for other companies for over 15 years and then completing my Wedding and Event Planning Certification, I jumped all in and created "Capstone Occasions" because just as "Capstone" is my crowning achievement, I want your event to be yours!
