Hi! I'm Emily.
OWNER, LEAD EVENT PLANNER
I'm a fair skinned, Jesus lovin' blondie from Richmond, Virginia with a passion for all things weddings! My whole life, I have loved planning. Whether it was for family gatherings, socials with friends or actual large scale events, my gifts of being organized and planning special events, shined bright.
After graduating from Christopher Newport University in 2017 with a Bachelors in Psychology, I jumped right into the event planning industry. From being a Bridal Attendant for an event venue to accepting a job as an Events Manager, I learned all the ins and outs of events of all sizes.
Fast forward to the year 2020 and I was faced with unfortunate job challenges in the midst of COVID-19. After lots of prayer and consideration for what was next, I felt both led and inspired to start my own business. Owning a business one day, was always something that I had in the back of my mind but I decided that a pandemic, would be the kickstart to making that dream a reality!
When I am not busy planning events, I love to be on the go, take in new adventures, spend time with my husband, our golden doodle puppy, Winston, and our family and friends.
