Bridget discovered her passion for hospitality after being immersed in Italian culture while studying abroad in Florence, Italy. Through the graciousness of her Italian professors and the local families, she was able to distill three ideals of hospitality: treat friends like family, focus your energy on your work, and most importantly of all, treat every event with the utmost of care and attention to detail. Bridget returned to the U.S. to build upon these ideals, receiving a Bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University in Hospitality Management and a minor in Business Administration. After graduating, she further honed her skills and gained invaluable experience on the Food & Beverage team working for The Broadmoor, a world-renowned resort. She has now carried these skills over to P.S. Weddings. As a Professional Wedding Planner under the Association of Bridal Consultants, Bridget will combine her proven methods and diverse experience to deliver a wedding that will exceed your expectations.
