She is dedicated to seeing things through, loving of people, and understands that tomorrow is not promised.  Her experience has fueled her why.  She vows to celebrate what's important, and she has made it her mission to create memories that last a lifetime, one event at a time.

 

Rafeal has been in the business of producing and designing luxurious weddings, corporate events, and social events, for the last 5 years.  Taking someone's vision and bringing it to life is not only humbling, but it brings joy to her heart knowing that she was a part of creating unforgettable memories.  Through Cherished Moments, she discovered her purpose in this life. It gave her the confidence she needed to know that she is capable and gifted enough to produce a gorgeous setting for any priceless moment.

 

She has expanded her brand with two new entities, RLH Consulting Firm, and the Dairy of An Innovator Podcast, which is the beginning of her creative empire, that will help entrepreneurs and business owners bring their visions to life.  She truly believes that her purpose in life is to Empower, Educate, Inspire, and Encourage a generation to become who God has called them to be.
