After 23 years working with weddings, it is bittersweet to be announcing that I will be retiring from weddings after 2021. The experiences that I have had, the families I have met, the long-lasting friendships I have made, will forever be in my heart.  I have loved every second of my career as a wedding planner, but God has presented me with new opportunities and led me on another career path.  To my couples and families...what a privilege it has been to get to know each and every one of you.   You are the reason I have done this for so long...the smiles, the laughter, and the love.  Seeing your dreams come true has made my dreams come true, so thank you.  To the many vendors, venue staff, and colleagues that I have worked with over the years...what a ride it has been!  Many of you have become my closest friends.  We have solved problems together, laughed together, been goofy together, prayed together and have made miracles together. This is truly the HARDEST part about leaving this industry.  I LOVE you all!  I am overwhelmed with gratitude for how you have supported me.  Thank you will never be enough.

you won't meet a sweeter boy with such a tender heart.  he never tires of getting and giving hugs and kisses.  he is faster than fast on his feet and is obsessed with football.  he never stops moving, and loves to eat. aspiring Clemson football player.

our very large baby boy and tiny baby girl.  Lewis is a full boxer that looks more like a muscular great dane. bedtime spooner, protector of his family, slobber slinger, sloppy eater, and loves to snuggle.  Velma controls Lewis, is our newest family member, loves to smother you with kisses, obsessed with tennis balls, and adores her people...well all people.
