Meet RENEE

Owner  //  Lead Planner + Designer // Budget Wrangler

_______

This journey was a long one, and I never realized where the road I was taking would lead me. Until 2012. It all come together. I started in the wedding industry as a bridal makeup artist in 2008, after a career with Bobbi Brown as an Account Executive. I left the executive world of crunching numbers, sales and artist management for a world of beautiful brides and fun. After working so closely with the amazing vendors here in the Panhandle, I noticed a big gaping hole in our market. Where do the girls go, who are sassy, stylish, fun and on-trend, when they have a tiny budget to work with? The answer was a little depressing. Not being one to settle, I forged ahead and found a niche to call my own. I still remember sitting across the table from one of the area’s most prominent wedding planners back in 2008 when I was helping as her day-of assistant.  I didn’t know then, that those experiences were preparing me for the job I love so much.

Meet LAUREN

Day-of Director // Stylist

_______

I love my job! What a way to start my Introduction, but you should know, without a doubt, I love being a part of your wedding day. When I get your file to create the Ceremony Seating, the Reception Layout, the Map of Events—-I pour over the plans you’ve made so far. I use lots of exclamation marks when I get excited about beautiful photos, dresses, shoes, bow ties, cake tables and anything that sparkles! I’m crazy about your details–can you tell?!  On the day-of, I make sure those details are right. I help polish the last minute styling and then my job is to make sure you get down the aisle–calm, cool and collected.  I’ve been working with Renee since we started planning my own wedding in 2013.  You’re going to love working with her.

Meet ASHLEIGH

Day-of Assistant // Calligraphy Artist //  Studio Manager

_______

If your wedding has more than 30 guests, chances are you’ll see me!  I work side-by-side with Lauren and Renee on the day-of to make sure all goes well.  I monitor rain clouds as far as the eye can see, style your beautiful tabletop, serve bottled water during your couple pictures, make sure you’re perfectly styled from head-to-toe during pictures, bring the chair to the stage for the garter toss, coordinate the evening with your DJ, prepare a little appetizer snack and champagne while you wait for your grand entrance, among many other duties!  Even a simple wedding needs a thoughtful eye and TLC, and I am there to make sure that happens.  I am also the one responsible for your chalkboard art and invitation calligraphy!  (From Renee: Ashleigh has formerly worked in restaurant management. You know the type. Quick-witted, fast-walker, savvy  and not afraid to get her hands dirty if there’s an emergency. I gush about her calligraphy talents, and am so thankful to have her keen eye on the wedding day.)
