Signature Scent: “Can I say sauteed garlic & onions?  Or fresh basil?  I don’t really wear a scent.  How about lavender?  I love the smell of fresh lavender.  Every time I pass by a lavender plant I rub it on my skin like it’s perfume.”

Accessory/Accessories: “My husband has outfitted me pretty well.  He gave me this awesome gold Tiffany cocktail ring that I wear with everything.  My 2 staples that never come off, though, are my pearl earrings and my simple, gold cartier ‘love’ bracelet.”

Favorite Flower: “Garden rose. I think they’re beautiful and elegant but somehow also humble.  I love the ivory and peachy colors best.”

Polish: “OPI cajun shrimp.  Bright orange is perfect for summer (and I always wish it were summer!)

Describe a typical- and ideal- weekend when you are not striving to put on a fabulous wedding: “A typical weekend involves leisurely morning coffee, gym class, brunch at home or out with friends and a stroll or some shopping.  An ideal weekend looks quite similar but in perfect sunny weather!”

Sneakers: “I don’t really do sneakers unless I’m working out and then they’re Nike.”

Favorite Brands: “I love my Shun knives, copper core All-Clad pots and Vitamix blender (it can turn a brick into silk).  Clothes?  That’s much harder for me to answer.  Shoes and bags tend to be Gucci (and occasionally Ferragamo… but only their fun stuff, not the square, business-y stuff).”

Daily Reads: “Tasting Table, Eater and Cooking Light.”

Beauty trick your willing to share: “I use a blueish, gunmetal shadow in my eyebrows.  It’s not as harsh as black but more substantial than brown.”

Ideal Vacation: “My ideal vacation would be cruising through islands on a big catamaran for at least a week.  The only clothes necessary would be a bathing suit, a sarong and a pair of flops.  The water would be amazingly clear and we’d stop only to scuba or snorkel or explore a remote island.  I’d eat fresh fish and exotic fruit at every meal and the ocean would rock me to sleep at night under the stars.  Heaven.”
