When I met Savannah and her mom for the first time, I knew planning Savannah and Cody’s wedding with them was going to be a literal dream.  They envisioned Savannah’s father walking her down the aisle at her childhood home and celebrating with their family and friends afterwards.  They wanted a beautiful tent with timeless […]

Wedding Ceremony at The Tutwiler Hotel 5

“She didn’t fight for a day. She didn’t just fight for any day.  She fought for TODAY.” Even just typing that sentence spoken by her officiate gives me chills.  Olivia contacted me in 2017 to begin planning her wedding.  Unfortunately we had to put planning on hold as a heart defect she had lived with […]

I met Jesica at a mutual friend’s party almost 10 years ago.  Since then she’s followed my work, and when she and Brett started ring shopping, she called me to plan their big day!  For over a year I got to plan with someone who felt like (and became) a dear sweet friend, and it […]
