What services do you provide?

Wedding planning, floral and design

Why did you decide to start a business?

It was a passion of mine and I could not stop thinking about it!

Before you owned a business, what did you do?

Education

What is your favorite client story?

When my bride walked into her reception area for her first glance and she looked at me and said “It’s beautiful! It’s just like how I imagined! I love you! 🙂

What is the most interesting client request you have had?

When my client wanted to do two formal introductions: one in traditional American attire and the other in traditional African attire. It was so fun!

What is the most important thing you have done to build your business?

Created a unique brand. It’s so important!

Who are some of your business idols?

Definitely Preston Bailey and Makini Regal

Do you have any mentors?

Yes, I have quite a few that help me out so much!

What is your favorite thing about being southern?

My favorite thing about being southern is living the strong focus of family and community.

What is your favorite southern entrees or sides? Why?

Definitely mac & cheese and collard greens. They are just awesome!

What are some of your favorite wedding trends for 2015?

I love the Marsala color palettes that I’m seeing for fall weddings. Marsala is Pantone’s color of the year and it is a beautiful color for blending and creating those deep, rich florals.

Do you prefer indoor or outdoor weddings? Why?

Indoor is my preference. I just love lighting and ambiance and indoor spaces can be transformed in so many creative ways.

What is your favorite item or piece of clothing to wear/use while doing business?

Because I’m doing a lot  of physical labor on wedding day, I like to wear  classic black pants and a dressy top. Who says you can’t be cute and productive!
