Classic Wedding DesignOur Story
When you grow up the way I did, service means something special.
I believe service is the foundation for everything good in life. It’s about spreading love, community, and serving others. It was my grandmother who taught me these things.
I was a fixture in my grandmother’s kitchen when she cooked. She did everything from scratch — never wrote anything down — and I would help her sift the flour, measure the vanilla, cut the apples, crack, and scramble the eggs. We made pound cake and peach cobbler. We canned vegetables and cooked dinner. It didn’t matter if she was serving our family or another one down the street. They all got the best my grandmother had to give.
The love of food and most of all service stuck with me, even as life took me away from the kitchen — first to the Army, then to a 17-year career in corporate HR.
While working in the corporate industry, I joined a Bible study group, the other members caught wind of my love for planning parties and before long, I was being hired for every type of event with meaning.
I’ve always had a servant’s heart and this work I was doing over nights and weekends quickly became my greatest joy.
I started as a company focused on delicious food and unrivaled customer service and as I catered, I realized providing the ultimate in service to our customers meant helping them with more than just the food.
They needed someone to apply the same care, same attention to detail and quality across their entire event planning process. And so, Classic Wedding Designs was born, a full-service wedding & event planning company.
I believe that greatness comes from serving others, and that is what I do. I pull out all the stops to ensure your event goes off without a hitch. I take care of every detail.
I always find a way to say “yes,” and in the process, I curate beautiful, memorable events that always leave my clients and their guests smiling.
Thank you for allowing me to be part of your most important days. I promise, I won’t let you down because your happiness is my success.
Yours in service,
Serving all of Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia and Florida
