Kaitlin Aberle

Raised in an entrepreneurial family, Kaitlin understands and respects hard work. While Kaitlin is dedicated and organized, she is also fun-loving and goofy at heart. She loves to find ways to make people laugh! When Kaitlin isn't planning weddings or floral designs she loves spending time with her husband and her extended family. She enjoys watching movies on the couch with her husband, Jason, to unwind after a long day. Staying fit and healthy are also an important part of Kaitlin's life. She and Jason participate in triathlons annually to keep themselves motivated! Baking is a source of relaxation for Kaitlin and she loves to share the (usually) yummy results. Community and bringing people together is a focal point of her life, and she believes there are never enough game nights or barbeques in a year. Traveling and seeing God’s beautiful creation is one of Kaitlin's greatest joys, and she hopes to get more stamps on her passport soon! She loves live theatre (especially musicals) and occasionally acts in local productions. Kaitlin is also a massage therapist. She appreciates self-care and treats herself to massages to feel refreshed and stay as close to a healthy work-life balance as possible! 

"For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was His plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus."
