It's funny how when someone gets a good thing going ... suddenly everyone wants to be a part of it!
A Day to Cherish started in 2005 with one independent wedding consultant. And now, here we are: a team of unique, amazingly talented women who absolutely love what we do. Each one of us handles a unique aspect of wedding planning, creative design, management, and even the accounting (ugh!).
Cara Morrison, Owner
I believe life isn't meant to be a spectator sport. I love my little family that includes my husband, Chris, my little spitfire, MaKenna, my baby, Avery and my two dogs, Lola and Rumor. My day isn't complete without a good run or a trip to Crossfit. I am terrified of spiders.
Before I was a part of A Day to Cherish, I never knew how much work could go into a wedding ... especially behind the scenes! I love that my workdays are filled with variety. I stay busy between communicating with vendors, making sure our clients questions are answered, and managing the logistics of each and every wedding.

Stephanie Poure, Lead Consultant
I am happily married to the love of my life, Jon. I have two four-legged, furry children, Axel and Chloe. I enjoy traveling, anything sporty outside, and spending time with our human family and friends. I love to cook.
I absolutely love everything that goes into planning a wedding. From choosing shoes, to centerpiece design to favors and placecards. I love being a part of a team that is here to make all your decisions easier and make sure the details come together just as you envision.
Cara (CJ) Lott, Consultant
I grew up in a small town in the middle of Iowa. My husband and I spent our first year of marriage on a teeny tiny Caribbean island. I’m all about adventure and love everything outdoors. I enjoy traveling and meeting people from all over the world. My passion is photography. I accomplished my dream of running a marathon this year and am already registered for my second. I find much joy in living a happy and active life!
I have always enjoyed planning events and parties. I spend my time reading fashion and beauty blogs and enjoy keeping up with the latest and greatest. I could spend all day organizing and re-organizing, decorating and shopping. I find joy in simple, meaningful things and love being a part of the event world.
Tara Walker, Assistant
My life would be dull without my four-legged children: Lily, Mocha, Bija, and Zahara. In my spare time, I like to decorate house interiors and relax in my wingback chair with a good book.
I live for the details and love being a part of a team that helps make someone's dreams a reality. Being able to step back at the end of the event and say, "We did this; we helped this couple live out their dream," is the best feeling in the world!
Megan Bergman, Assistant
I enjoy being outdoors and love to be adventurous. I live a very active and healthy lifestyle, and love to hike, run, and workout. I also love to cook for my family, trying new recipes are our favorite! I have the cutest fur child! His name is Diesel Bryce! He has two different colored eyes just like his momma and he won my whole heart the second I saw him.
Keeping busy is my forte and I love working on different projects all the time. The one thing that I truly love about this industry is that every single day is different.
Rachel Martin, Assistant
My love for weddings started when I was a little girl. I was about 4 my when mom said we went to a wedding and the whole night I was following around the bride admiring her dress, not leaving her side. In my Senior year of High School we had an assignment to make a business plan for a company. I decided to create a wedding planning company. It only made sense for me that several years later I am here working with these beautiful ladies at A Day to Cherish.
While I am not planning some event of sorts I enjoy watching sports, hanging out with my amazing mother, and volunteering atlocal non-profits. I try to live each and every day saying to myself “live each day to the fullest as you never know when it might be your last.” This has opened some exciting doors in my life that I am extremely grateful for.

Jessica Ippolito, Intern
I am a senior at Arizona State University studying marketing and Special Events Management. It has been a dream of mine since I was little to turn someone's idea of a fairytale wedding into a reality. It is the little details that go into event planning that excite me; picking the flowers, color schemes and watching someone's perfect day unwind.
I live for the little things in life, like laughing so hard my stomach hurts or aimlessly driving with my best friends singing every word to every song. I wouldn't be where I am today without my 3 puppies and my family! (and Luke Bryan - my favorite artist of course).
