I started Folie à Deux Events in 2016 as a way to blend my love of the wedding industry with my interest in conceptual design. If you went back in time and asked High-School Erica, I would have never have expected I would wind up in the wedding industry. But fast forward to 2008 and I had opened my first business as a wedding gown designer & blogger, gradually making a professional shift toward wedding & party planning.

I am originally from Upstate New York and then spent 8 years in NYC studying fashion at the Fashion Institute of Technology while working a variety of day jobs in couture fashion, interior design, finance, and the luxury car business. Now I live in Chapel Hill, NC with my cute husband, James, two cats, Midna and Kira, and our dog, Cody. My other obsessions include craft beer, sewing, hiking, writing, and sci-fi/fantasy stuff.
