What inspired you to launch your own business?

When I was in college, I always knew that someday I would be a famous actress and soon produce my movies. Life showed me that being an actor was not what I was called to do. So, I took a break and went to work for Disney World. Working at Disney was an unforgettable experience. On my off days, I would explore different resorts and end up catching or even watching a wedding occur. Disney weddings are indescribable, but I would say it was then that I fell in love with the logistics and design of weddings during my time at Disney. In 2018, I decided to start doing weddings as a hobby. I wasn’t sure if this were something I would love doing or would want to be consistent doing, but in 2020, I decided to take a leap of faith and start my business. So I would say that Disney inspired me to do weddings.


What keeps you passionate about weddings?

Honestly, the production. I love seeing my clients be carefree and enjoy just being able to be married and in love. Knowing that my team and I made that happen keeps me going each time.


Please share a recent testimonial from a happy client!

"There are not words to describe how amazing Samone and her team are - but I will try! I am a project manager by training, I am a perfectionist with a crazy attention to detail, so I knew finding a planner I could hand over control to would be a huge challenge for me. Samone delivered beyond my wildest dreams - she managed every detail up to the big day, kept me organized, coordinated with all our vendors (the hotel, the shuttles, the ceremony venue, the reception venue, the DJ, florist, bakery, and every other step in between!), and made sure every detail of my 200 person wedding went off without a hitch. But that only describes half of it - while Samone manages every single task like a complete expert, she also provides such care, support, and empathy all along the way. Weddings are stressful! And having Samone by my side made it easy and gave me the ability to relax and really focus on enjoying my big day. Thank you Samone and team, I'd hire you again in a heart beat! --Kailey Ayogu
