MEET CANDICE MONKOU

With 8 years of experience in the wedding and event industry, and 9 years in education and educational technology, Candice has taken something that was once a passion and has turned it into a thriving business. Her keen eye, attention to detail, and pursuit of perfection has truly shined through in every production.

Hi there! I’m Candice, the warm, humble, fearless, and ambitious leader of Ideally Yours DC. I enjoy building strong relationships with each and every #IdealPair that lasts beyond the aisle and creating uniquely tailored weddings. Every love story is special and I believe your wedding day should reflect that.

My favorite part of each journey, is seeing the look on the Bride and Grooms faces, when they finally lock eyes down the aisle. Seeing such joy and raw emotions warms my heart each time.

My mission is to ensure that every couples big day goes without a hitch, even if you are not an official #IdealPair. By Winter of 2022, we will have a full list of items to help every bride on their journey.
