CCP_4158_354_500As a native of Western North Carolina, I love the outdoors and am not afraid to get my hands dirty! I love to paint and be creative with flowers, yarn or anything available. I have two silly goats, a handful of chickens, a dog named Coco, and Oscar the cat. As you can imagine my daily routine is quite entertaining. I’ve been married almost 4 years now and hope to have lots of kids one day. The fuller my days, the happier I am.

I love, love, love being a wedding planner and designer! Helping others is a lifelong passion for me. I really enjoy working with people, and can get along with just about anybody (including the occasional grumpy relative).  I have been in the wedding business since my own wedding, which I attempted to plan and handle all on my own. I quickly realized I would much rather focus on the fun aspects, and let someone else make all the details come together. It was the best decision I made during the planning process, and I couldn’t have imagined it being any better…truly! I now use my optimistic view and practical approach to even the most stressful challenges help brides from all over the country.

Thank you for taking time to read a little bit of my story.  I look forward to hearing yours as we work together to create your perfect day.

Love,

Michelle

I was born in Alabama, but have made my home in North Carolina long enough to call it home (not giving away my age here). I am a really creative person and find incredible fulfillment in planning and designing weddings with Occasions. Learning each new client’s dream and then making that concept into a living, touchable experience is my favorite.

In my spare time I also spend a lot of time creating, focusing especially on 3-D multimedia collage pieces (you can see a sample here), jewelry, painting, knitting, photography, and upcycling absolutely any cool treasure I can find. My family includes my husband (of 25 years!!!), 3 handsome boys and even more handsome dog, Maximus. We spend a lot of time outdoors hiking, working in the yard and gardens, and riding in my Mini Cooper with the top down.

I look forward to meeting you so that I can help you create the wedding of your dreams

 

Love,

Annette
