Meet the Team

Meet Vanna

FOUNDER, PRINCIPAL PLANNER, OPERATIONS DIRECTOR

Vanna

I’m an organization queen, a cat-lover, a story-teller, an advice-giver and a natural planner at heart. Most days you’ll find me in a comfy, oversized shirt, a top-knot in my hair, and a coffee mug just out of reach (while working from my couch). But don’t let that fool you, I love ANY excuse to get gussied up. Wearing dresses and wedges, paired with a pop of color on the lip is my favorite.

What’s it like to work together? I believe in collaboration and brainstorming sessions, usually over cocktails and appetizers. We’ll crack jokes, get a little personal and likely become fast friends. When the day of your wedding finally arrives, I’ll know all about you and your person; how you met, how he proposed, what you like to do on the weekends, what kind of family dynamics (or drama) may be going on, and all the ins and outs of your big day.

When I’m not planning weddings, you can find me at happy hour, probably sipping on a martini (extra dirty, please). Or at bootcamp, attempting to burn off the calories from last weekend’s wedding cake (because I ALWAYS have to taste the cake).

I’m a midwest girl at heart. I was born and raised in the dairyland state of Wisconsin. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh with a BBA in marketing and supply chain management, I was SO over the cold, snowy winters. I yearned for sunshine, hot weather, and big-city living, and now look where I am! I have been planning and executing weddings in Austin since 2014. I’ve proudly worked with over 60 couples in love.

Meet Paige

CREATIVE DIRECTOR, DESIGN COORDINATOR

Paige

You may be surprised to hear this, but before finding my place in wedding planning, I was a band manager, a realtor, a child caretaker, and I even made and sold my own jewelry. I’ve always been a big dreamer, a big thinker, and a creative extrovert. I’m a natural conversationalist and I’m always looking to connect on a personal level, which means we’ll probably get to know each other pretty easily.

After getting married myself and moving into our first home, I fell in love with hosting. It started out small, with dinner parties and mommy meet-ups. Slowly my gatherings grew more complex in terms of theme and decor. While my friends rave about my elaborate dinner parties, much to my own surprise, planning my wedding was a whole other beast. In hindsight, having an unbiased and experienced professional as a sounding-board for ideas and advice (aka a wedding planner), would have made a world of difference.

I’m happy to say my love of hosting cozy get-togethers has now transitioned onto a larger scale. I truly believe big weddings don’t have to be impersonal, and my goal is to help other ladies avoid the same wedding planning pitfalls I made.
