We’re always amazed at what they come up with! Check out their answers to our questions below, and get a look at their work in action!
How did you get your start?
Our company first originated in Tampa where Rachael planned a stunning backyard wedding on the bay. The couple wanted to incorporate classic British traditions along with some of their favorite local elements such as, their favorite downtown food truck! The backyard was decked out with market lighting, a dance floor, lounge areas, and a super cool antique bar! Rachael immediately knew she wanted to plan weddings for her career, and that she loved working with couples who have a unique vision for their wedding day. Rachael continued to grow the company in the Orlando area and Taylor joined her in 2016! Together, they help couples tell their story by designing and planning unique and memorable weddings filled with personal details that truly represent them as a couple.
What services do you offer?
Everything from day-of/month-of coordination to full planning and design.
How would you describe your décor/ design style?
Trendy and unique, but always with a touch of class! We love helping our clients take their vision to the next level, and coming up with creative concepts that incorporate their personal details into the wedding.
How do you keep up with the latest wedding trends?
Wedding publications, social media, and (surprisingly) interior design magazines! So many trends stem from home décor elements, and we love it.
What sets you apart from others?
The friendships we develop with our clients and their families throughout the planning process, and the desire to create a fun and memorable wedding planning experience for all of our couples. We love helping couples tell their story, and it’s wonderful to see all of their guests enjoying those special moments with them!
What advice would you give Brides during the design/planning process?
Don’t be afraid to incorporate your personal style into your wedding. After all, the day is about you and your fiancé- you should make it yours! A professional planner and designer can help you bring all of your ideas together and incorporate them into the wedding in a beautiful and tasteful way.
Who is your style icon?
Jackie Kennedy. She was sophisticated, stylish, and always hosting parties at the White House!
When you’re not helping clients, what can we find you doing?
Rachael is usually enjoying a good cup of coffee, working out, or spending time with family and friends. Taylor can often be found working on new home project or relaxing by the pool!
Fun Facts about you:
- Rachael has a background in theater and stage management, and it really shines through on wedding days when things need to be kept on track!
- Taylor used to teach preschool before she found her calling in events. The kids were so cute and you never knew what they were going to say or do next!
- We get REALLY excited about wedding details. We spend way too much time texting each other photos of different table designs and dreaming up new concepts 😊
