We would LOVE to work with you on creating a day that perfectly tells the story of you! We want to exceed your expectations and deliver an experience that is nothing short of amazing for you and your guests.
As your wedding planner, we become your friend, confidant, idea factory, sounding board, referee, and so much more! As you can see, it is SO important that we are a good fit!
As you’re making the decision to become a CSE bride, consider the following:
Will we become friends? This may seem a bit silly, but when it comes to such an important day, our personalities need to be a match. Over the years, we have found that the relationships that have gone the smoothest and resulted in the most amazing days are the ones where we become friends, and would be even if we weren’t your wedding planner. You love celebrate the little moments throughout the planning process and appreciate the honest dose of reality that we deliver when needed. We are going to be together a LOT. There are lots of emails, phone calls, and meetings. And on the wedding day, we’re going to be all up in your business (along with the photographer, so you’ll want to make sure you love them, too!). A good relationship is going to be the foundation for everything we do together. You need to be able to trust us and know that we always have your best interests at heart.
Do you like our style? Our ideal client is traditional and classic, but loves a good modern twist in some way. We love weddings full of Southern hospitality – the good kind that makes your guests feel loved on the entire night – personalized details, and a great guest experience. This isn’t to say we aren’t happy to take on things outside of this aesthetic (we do love to think outside the box!) but this is our niche and tends to be where we excel most.
Is your marriage the center of your planning? We love weddings, but at the center of it all, our true desire is to help you celebrate the start of your marriage. We want to celebrate your love and this new season you are entering. We will encourage you to set aside date nights with no wedding talk and challenge you to think about the heirlooms and special details we can include in your wedding day that tell your story, knowing that one day you will pass those down to your children and grandchildren to continue your family’s legacy. We’ll be praying for you as you enter marriage. My hope is that through the planning process with us, you will feel the genuine love we have for you.

Prioritizes experiences and emotions over things.
Loves everything her wedding day represents…the first day of the rest of her life.

Loves tradition, yet embraces change with grace.
Loves the details, and knows that planning a wedding means planning for more than just one day.
