About Karen Dees- Owner

"When you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life."  This is our philosophy based on passion for all things beautiful, simple, yet elegant.

Karen has over 30 years experience in areas such as photography, creating beautiful cakes, project management, event planning, and executive assistant.

Photography - Taking photos is a passion of mine.  Capturing the moment, creating unique photos for every event, and every milestone.  You will be able to treasure your photo memories for a lifetime.

Bakery - when you create cakes that delight the clients and it becomes more lucrative than a career desk job, it is time to change the plan.  Everyone deserves a beautiful cake that tastes amazing, is fresh and never frozen.

Project Management - projects are scoped, priced, delivered on time and on budget.  Metrics and processes are documented in easy to follow documentation and manuals.

Executive Assistant - for many levels of management from Senior Manager to Vice President, in addition to U.S. Army Reserves Majors to 2-Star Generals.

Certified Wedding and Event Planner and Venue Professional  - Working with Brides and Grooms to execute their perfect vision for their wedding.
