Hi there, I'm your Editor of Wedding Checklists. I'm a big fan of weddings and a self-proclaimed fairy godmother of Illinois. I love to lend a hand in organizing my friends' and relatives' wedding to help them have the fairy tale wedding they deserve. You can say that I am already a master in the art of wedding preparation. When not waving my magical wedding wand all over the place, I and my husband, with our two lovable twin daughters, spend our time binge-watching and re-watching Disney movies.
