What inspired you to launch your own business?

Although I planned my wedding, it did not dawn on me at that time that I would become a wedding and event planner. After marrying my husband I started planning small gatherings mostly during the holidays, and somewhere along the way, my mother thought I would be the perfect person to plan our family reunions and so I did. During the time of planning small gathers and family reunions, I worked at Regions Mortgage as a Flood Specialist in their Escrow department, one of my colleagues was planning her wedding and asked if I could assist her with find vendors since I was always planning something. After she booked each event professional that I shared with her the light bulb went off and I decided that I might want to plan weddings. I did not want to just jump into the deepwater. I wanted to make sure that this was something that I wanted to do, so before beginning my journey into the wedding planner world I job shadow another planner for 1 year. After job shadowing that planner for a year not only was I ready to become a planner, but I knew that wedding planning was the career for me.


What keeps you passionate about weddings?

Although I love the looks my clients have when they see their room revealed to them before the guest enter, what keeps me passionate about weddings is that I know that I have helped someone solve a problem or reach the final result they desired.


Please share a recent testimonial from a happy client!

"I wanted to take the time to thank you for everything that you've done for me and my family for the wedding. From the beginning to the end you were so helpful with that calming presence. I enjoyed our meetings where my mom and I would pick your brain about different ideas. Words cannot express the gratitude in my heart as you took me and my family under your wing and treated us with such warmth and care. The wedding day for me was easy going and stress-free. I appreciate how you were professional in listening to the opinions of the family during the rehearsal and for all of your hard work on the wedding day. Everything was AMAZING and it was because of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you."- Kimberly
