Prior to Jeffrey Miller I worked extensively in the design field, focusing on apparel design. I was trained at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York as well as Politecnico di Milano in Italy. While my formal training has been in fashion I use my eye to stay close to current trends across industries. My close attention to detail helps to establish a seamless transition from your vision to reality.
When I am not working, you can find me outdoors – boating, fishing or skiing. My fiancé and I love to travel and we are always researching our next destination. I love working hand in hand with couples to help plan their special day. I am excited to meet you to help make your event a perfect success!
What's your greatest non-work-related accomplishment?
Being a fun mom and the biggest fan of my 5 awesome kids.
When I was about 13 years old I had a girlfriend from Spain who invited me to her home for dinner. Her mother made this incredible paella that I still think about today.
I went back to school in my 50’s to study culinary arts and catering management.
I played in dinner and community theater in my 20’s. I love to sing and dance.
My favorite part of the wedding is when the bride and groom walk down the aisle after saying their vows. There is something about the glow from their faces that makes me smile every time.When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I love being outside in warm weather walking, jogging and hiking. I'm slightly obsessed with New Orleans food, art and live music. I typically make one trip a year to the Big Easy. My backyard is New Orleans Art Market themed with string lights and decorated with my favorite memorabilia.

I watch sports & play Scrabble
The Bride and Groom's first dance
My first job was working at Gentiles produce market when I was 15. I loved getting to try new and exotic fruits and vegetables before they were more popular-- hence my love for Asian pears and Star fruit!
What was your first job?
My first job was working at a retirement community as a dining room server when I was 15. Over the next few years, I began taking on more responsibilities like setting up the events and also became a supervisor of the dining room. I enjoyed working with the residents and staff so much that it made me realize that I wanted to go to school for Tourism and Hospitality Management.
What do you like most about your venue?
During the ceremony, the bride takes a beautiful long walk through the old Arboretum trees and appears among them as she turns to walk down the aisle. It’s a breathtaking moment for the bride, the guests and of course, the groom.
I am an explorer at heart, a spiritual person who loves cats and loves to be out in nature. I enjoy being creative; my newest undertaking is making fairy garden terrariums! I have a passion for baking and cooking and was lucky enough to have owned my own bakery/cafe. I’ve learned that anyone can do anything or be anything they want in life; all you need to do is go after it by following your heart. I also love to see people happy, and I feel it's an honor to be part of someone’s special day, a day they will remember forever.
My greatest accomplishment would be my three children. I've helped raise three great kids that have grown up to be kind and respectful to others. They're pretty good looking young adults if I must say so myself.
I enjoy going to rock concerts, working out at the gym and spending time outdoors. I've turned my youngest son on to classic rock music and he loves going to concerts with me.
