This journey was a long one, and I never realized where the road I was taking would lead me. Until 2012—when it all came together.
I started working in the wedding industry as a makeup artist in 2008, after a career with Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. I left the executive world of crunching numbers, sales, and artist management for a world of beautiful brides and fun.
After working closely with so many amazing vendors here in the Florida Panhandle, I noticed a gaping hole in our market.
Where do the girls go, who are sassy, stylish, fun and on-trend, when they want a beautiful wedding all for a great price?
The answer was a little depressing. Not being one to settle, I forged ahead and found a niche to call my own.
I still remember sitting with one of the area's most prominent planners back in 2008 when I was helping as a day-of assistant.
I didn't know those experiences were preparing me for the job I love so much—more than a decade later.
When people asked us about our wedding planning our answers were slightly shocking to the average person...We chose a wedding planner we'd never met. We chose to get married at a location we'd never been to or seen. And since we ultimately wanted to be guests at our own wedding, we entrusted many of the finer details to Renee and her outstanding team. And they delivered - BIG TIME! We truly had the most perfect dream wedding we could have ever hoped for.
I trusted her fully
Renee and her staff made me feel so comfortable and taken care of, honestly I felt like a celebrity the whole night. I was reluctant to hire a planner because we wanted to keep within our budget, but I have to tell you, it is literally the best money you will EVER spend. Worth EVERY SINGLE CENT. I did not have to think of one detail and everything was EXACTLY as I dreamed, and honestly better.
OUR WEDDING WAS...PERFECT
I cannot imagine our wedding day without A Wedding Collection! While planning our wedding, Renee took care of everything, literally. I never once was worried and anytime I felt slightly overwhelmed, Renee always made me feel better! I thought being an out of state bride would mean that the planning process would be difficult, but it was so effortless all because of Renee. My husband and I truly had the best time on our wedding day and we will forever be grateful to Renee, Allison, and Ashley!
I never once was worried...
