About the Planner
Hi Brides! My name is Elizabeth and I am the lead planner. I am a transplant from West Virginia and have been living in North Carolina for the past two years. I just got married this past December on the beautiful island of St. Thomas to my husband Chris and we are settling down with our two precious kitties after 3 years of long distance. I have always been a planner, from the time I was in high school organizing drives, through college where I planned social and philanthropic events, and finally into graduate school. What I didn’t plan on was changing career paths but after moving and some serious self evaluation I couldn’t be happier. I’ve finally found what I was meant to do. You can find me any given weeknight exploring wedding blogs and magazines, curled up with a good book, or out being adventurous at a paint class or grabbing dinner with friends. I love to make the most out of life and treasure the little things. Every couple has a love story and it’s my job to help all of your guests get to see it too.
About the Job
As a planner, I believe firmly in open communication. I am constantly in touch with my brides checking in on things that need to be done, sending over inspiration and helpful articles, and celebrating life as it happens to each of us. I aim to get to know each of my couples personally so I can better bring out the unique parts of their relationship in each detail we plan from the kind of food served to the lighting at their reception.
I am also a very driven planner. I know that things will inevitability happen. No wedding goes off perfectly from a late vendor, lost earring, broken zipper, etc. But it is my job to make sure those things are taken care of and the day moves forward as it should. I am a problem solver and I am determined to make your wedding day special! For example, I recently ran into a muddy ceremony site and was told by some that it couldn’t be done. But I had scoped out that spot because of it’s amazing view and we made it work. I stood my beautiful bride on a tarp covered by a lush blanket and got the most magical photos to this day. A wedding day can’t just stop, and neither will I.
