The Basics:

Where are you from?

I’m from Stockholm, Sweden but my father is Dutch and my mother is South Korean.

Where you are in school and what is your major?

I'm a freshman at the College of Charleston majoring in Hospitality and Business Management

What is the most played song on your iPod?

I'm a huge U2 fan and if you ask me their song "With or Without You" cannot be played too many times!

What is your favorite restaurant in Charleston?

There are so many! I could eat sushi every day of the week and my favorite place to go for that is O-ku! If I ever feel like changing it up Fast and French on Broad Street is a favorite as well.

You just scored $5 what would you spend it on?

I would run to Starbucks and order a white chocolate mocha with an extra shot of espresso!

Summer or Winter?

Summer! Leaving Sweden after 22 cold years and moving to Charleston is probably one of the best decisions I ever made!

Wedding Details:

What are you most excited about with this internship?

Where to start?!  I'm excited to learn all the different venues and styles of weddings in Charleston

When is the best time for a wedding in Charleston?

I would probably say a nice fall day in the end of October. When the weather is not to hot and not to cold - just perfect!

What is your favorite wedding color palate?

I love the blush romantic look. My ideal palate would be shades of pink and cream.

If you were getting married in Charleston where would it be?

Ever since I was a little girl I've always dreamed of getting married somewhere private on the beach.
