What inspired you to launch your own business?

A friend inspired me to take a leap of faith after I assisted her at an event and left her couple and guests enthralled. There is just something special about how I handle wedding planning, it's different; it’s a blessing I can’t really explain. I have a unique ability to make your day amazingly successful, leave you speechless and happy. I invest my time in giving my clients breath-taking, life-changing experiences, and building lasting relationships. My team shows up and gets the job done no matter how far along you are in the planning process and still blow your mind away without a doubt! Every couple/ client’s happiness and satisfaction mean everything because they have the power to hire and fire me as they wish but with us they say ‘Phuliffects is definitely one of a kind’. For us, a successful event begins with our perfect plan!


What keeps you passionate about weddings?

My amazing couples! I am passionate about working with my couples because the process is always worth it. Also the joy and satisfaction they get after every successful event keeps me asking for more.


Please share a recent testimonial from a happy client!

"Beyond Amazing Service! Akua was the best! I hired her for the “Day of Coordinator”, but she did wayyyy more than just the day of. Her professionalism is on point, she knew exactly what she is about and made our day 100% stress-free! I’m sure I didn’t know half of the behind-the-scenes planning, and when I was told something didn’t go as planned, she already corrected it before I was even informed. Her team also does decor as well and even with my indecisive and detailed ways, she made sure I got everything I wanted. With all the craziness going on, her team worked so FAST which is very important. Akua made sure all vendors knew where to go and what to do at their appointed time. I cannot say how much we appreciated her! Akua, words cannot begin to express my gratitude for her. You are so detail-oriented, extremely patient, very understanding, and such a lovely person, with such an upbeat spirit and always has a lovely smile on your face. Thank youuu sooooo much!"- Kayla McGill
