Sure to become your confidant, Courtney will guide you through planning from your first big decision (the venue!) to the last dance on your wedding day. With nearly a decade of direct experience in the wedding field, Courtney is known for her calm demeanor and grace under pressure. To your event she brings a strong sense of Southern tradition, an encyclopedic knowledge of etiquette, a rolodex of creative vendors, and the unique ability to fuse old-school and new-school resulting in design that is very much “tradition with a twist.” Her background as a photo stylist ensures that the designs she creates will look just as beautiful on film as they do in real life.

Courtney’s work has appeared in Bride & Bloom Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, Weddings Unveiled and Flower Magazine, to name a few. She was recently recognized by Martha Stewart as one of the top wedding planners in the country. Closer to home, she’s been recognized year after year as one of the best planners in the state by Virginia Living Magazine.

Courtney considers it a great honor and privilege to partner with couples and their families during wedding planning. Bringing a sense of calm and rationale to the process is her top priority. We’d love to hear from you!
