simply southern wedding & event design is my dream-come-to-life. I have the most amazing and supportive husband and family who’ve encouraged me to pursue my passion for creating and coordinating memorable events that define and enrich our lives. My effervescent personality and playful energy will bring a fun and imaginative approach to planning your event.

I was born and raised in North Carolina and I adore my Southern roots. I cannot function daily without either sweet tea or Dr. Pepper. Barbeque is a staple in my diet, so much so, that we served it at my own wedding. Monograms are a must. I am always the first one on the dance floor in the latest fashion trend and a fabulous pair of shoes (I’m obsessed). I have the best dog on the planet. I love Southern charm. And gentlemen. I squeal with excitement when each event comes together. Developing and crossing off a check list makes my heart sing.

I have been planning events all my life, even before I was old enough to make them a reality. It’s what I was born to do. After 5 years as an Event Planner for a country club and wedding planning company, I finally decided to venture out on my own. My goal is to capture your vision, become your source of guidance and make every event detail uniquely yours.

I cannot wait to be a part of your Big Day!
