Watch me work


My husband Paul and I are high school sweethearts married since July of 2014. Both born and raised in sweet home Alabama. We are blessed with raising our two daughters in Birmingham.

My heart is for you to let me handle the details while you focus on your marriage and the "why" behind the day. I pray that you know your union in marriage is a reflection of how God loves the church. Ultimately, I pray that you seek His perfect example of selfless love and gift of eternal salvation that He offers us. It’s the “why” and the little moments throughout the day that combine altogether to make it so special. I'd be honored to be a part!

I love weddings. It's the tears of your best friends and maids of honor, the photo of your grandmother walking down the aisle, the moment you show your grandfather you’re wearing the bracelet they gave you for graduation, the rush of excitement of the bridesmaids when it’s time to line up for the ceremony, the eager anticipation of the guests standing and watching for their first glimpse of the bride, the groom’s face when he sees his bride for the first time, the flower girl peeking at the couple during the prayer. It’s the program attendants squealing in excitement the first time they see the bride and closing their eyes every time the couple kisses, the moment of celebration when the bride and groom walk up the aisle after being pronounced husband and wife, when your bridesmaid wipes lipstick off your teeth, when your bridesmaids pick pine straw out of your dress from being outside before the ceremony, the tears shed when finally putting on the wedding dress, the moment the bride sees the details at the reception, the laughter during the groom and mother of the groom’s first dance because they didn’t practice, the friends catching glances at your new rings, the bridesmaid who knows she’s next, the prayer in the brides room before the ceremony, the spark in the couple's eyes as they leave their ceremony. It's the day when everyone you love most is in arms reach.

I will help get make up out of your wedding day pjs, hold your umbrella and dress if it rains, make sure the cookies your mom baked get replenished at the dessert bar, adjust the timeline when a vendor is running late, fix your bridesmaids torn dress, ensure your mom doesn’t miss you cut the cake, escort grandma to her transportation and help you surprise everyone with a second dress. It excites me to come along side my brides moment by moment as their biggest cheerleader and advocate on their wedding day. Would love to talk more!
