Hayley studied Opera for 3 Years at Louisiana State University, while crafting Latte Art designs at an Italian Cafe and Gelatoria. Working with the owner, she learned to make handcrafted scratch made Gelato through true Italian pasteurization techniques which began her focus towards the food industry. She was awarded best frozen treats for "225" Magazine in Baton Rouge for her 150 different unique recipes on Gelato.
Transitioning a small shop into a full restaurant with Chef Marcus Day, the two showcased his cuisine offering amazing and innovative wine dinners! From then on, she was fascinated with finding perfect wine and food pairings. Bottom line: Hayley knows wine and food and Gelato! and how to put them together to make any event special and memorable.
And all that experience partnered with her interest in celebrations and sharing that joyful spirit lead Hayley to weddings. She loves meeting the wedding couple, friends and family, and helping them to plan the perfect wedding pairings!
