I’m currently in the United States Navy. I got stationed in Jacksonville, Florida early 2013 onboard the USS Hue City. I’m currently stationed at Southeast Regional Maintenance Center and have decided to use my free time wisely working with Kari Hartley. I met Kari as a client of hers when I got married November 18, 2017! She turned my wedding into a fairy-tale. Since then, I’ve decided to take on a dream of mine helping others making their fairy-tale wedding come true too!
