What did you want to be when you grew up?
Wynn: I wasn’t sure the exact position I wanted to be in, but I wanted to be in the business world and climb the corporate ladder so I can wear a suit everyday. Then, when I was in it, I hated the corporate culture and I hated wearing suites. Thomas: I wanted to be a High-End Fashion Designer, but now I’m a High-End Wedding Designer so I think it’s pretty close to what I wanted to do.
What was your first job ever?
Wynn: I was a bank teller Thomas: I was a pharmacy clerk
Who inspires you?
Wynn: Steve Jobs, Oprah, and Tony Robbins. They are three amazing people that overcame adversity and became successful because they stuck to what they believed in. Thomas: Steve Jobs, Karl Lagerfeld, and Preston Bailey. The vision and the products that they create are amazing, and I love how they dream big and out of the box.
Why do you love what you do?
Wynn: I love what I do because I love working with couples and getting to know them and their families. Also, it’s such a thrill to see everything that we planned and brainstorm to come together before our eyes. I love having the couple see the room for the first time. Even for me when we are running around all day, and to stand back and see the finished room, it’s an amazing feeling. This job allows me to embrace my creativity and to design and create things that don’t exist. Thomas: I love creating new spaces and taking on an element that the client loves and expanding that vision to a higher level that they didn’t know existed.
Did you / do you have a mentor or hero?
Wynn: My hero is my mom. I know sometimes I take her for granted but I wouldn’t have all that I have if it wasn’t for her hard work. I am lucky to have a lot of Mentors! I have my fabulous best friend Thomas Bui to be my wedding mentor in this industry. I have my friend Mike Bosworth, who is an entrepreneur & author who continues to teach me that I need to work smarter not harder. My biggest mentor is my husband who’s taught me to think out of my comfort zone. Thomas: My mentors are my parents
What is your specialty?
Wynn: My specialty is my passion for design. I love the design element of weddings and bringing up ideas to my clients that they love. Also, I would say another specialty is working with people. I’ve always learned that you have to treat all people with respect. I work well with people, even when something goes wrong or not according to plan, or when we are all under pressure. Thomas: My specialty is styling weddings & events.
