WEDDING PLANNER + DESIGNER

Here’s the thing: You shouldn’t lose sleep over your wedding day–as your planner, I’m already doing that for you. The best part? I love it. Nothing lights me up more than seeing my brides thrive, and thriving is easy when you’ve got a flawless timeline, design-driven vision, and a luxury, high-touch process to back it up. When your wedding planning process is as intentional as it is exclusive, nothing is by accident–and with that comes freedom. The freedom to enjoy your engagement instead of being consumed by wedding planning. The freedom to become the bride you always dreamed of being. The freedom to host the most lavish event of the year (without the responsibility of playing hostess). 

As a Southern girl, here’s what I believe: Hospitality isn’t a choice and tradition matters. Your wedding day is no different. When I’m not designing events, you can find me splurging on a good spa day, supporting locally-owned businesses, curling up for puppy snuggles with my Irish Setter Bernice and traveling to overseas destinations with my husband, Kyle.
