If you have already said “Yes to the Dress” and planned all the details on your own (with the help of Pinterest), but you’d like to celebrate without a worry, then hiring a professional to manage the details the day-of is essential. Our job is simply to confirm all details and ensure all goes according to YOUR plan. Consider us, your wedding day manager. For all your wedding management needs before you say "I DO," beginning 8 weeks before the big day, we will be there making sure all the details have been covered and nothing is overlooked. During this time we will discuss what you may need to complete, answer any final questions, and of course lend advice to make your day perfection.
Consider us the best manager you ever had, we’d be happy to finalize all the details by meeting up in person for coffee or margaritas (whichever you prefer, we love both). At this point, we will take over vendor communication, create a flawless timeline, create & finalize floor plans, do a final walk-through of your venue.

our favorite people
My wedding was full of love and memories without the added stress of all the details! Wedding planning can be stressful. I knew that going into planning my wedding. Before becoming engaged myself, I watched as my other close friends stressed over the details of their wedding. My now, husband and I decided we wanted to have a destination wedding. We wanted a small and intimate wedding with our closest friends. My thought behind this was to make it less stressful, but planning a wedding in another country is a whole different level of stress.
"That’s where Brittany came in! Brittany really listened to what it was my husband and I wanted for our wedding day."
She created a beautiful mood board that brought together all of our details from the color palette, floral inspirations, down to my husbands tropical tie. It was perfect and it made communicating with my “Day of Coordinator” in Jamaica so much easier because she knew exactly what we wanted beforehand. Brittany connected us with an amazing travel agent who set up all travel + accommodations for all of our guests. I don’t know what we would have done without Britt all those months leading up to the event! We were able to celebrate our love with our favorite people and not stress about any of the details.
Samantha + Michael
I’m a bubbly, outgoing, Florida native, with a love of people and all things pretty. I’m always in search of the next inspiration whether it's reading a blog, visiting a trendy new restaurant, or exploring a new city.
I absolutely love collaborating with new clients + vendors on projects and seeing a vision to fruition. With my hard work ethic and keen eye for detail, you can rest easy knowing I’ll bring a fresh perspective, but a flawless execution of your event.
I’m a sucker for love, but the thing I love most is my family. Married to my high school sweetheart and he's my biggest supporter in all my crazy dreams + goals. Together, we have two adorable twin babes, who keep us on our toes. Whenever I’m not dreaming up the next big event, you can catch me soaking up the Florida sunshine or out on the town sipping on a coffee (or glass of red wine) with my loyal tribe of incredible girlfriends!
how we got our name
how we got our name
People often ask me this question + the answer is pretty simple. I’m a twin momma to a fiery, wonderful little girl with a brilliant spirit named Lilah, so I took the letter ‘L’ from her name and made it ‘ELLE’. Then, there's my big hearted, sweet little boy Grayson, sooo there’s your Gray.
My twins are the reason behind E V E R Y T H I N G I do + because of them I’ve pushed even harder for my dreams so know they can achieve anything, just like their momma. They are my inspiration and the momentum driving me forward, so the business is named for them.
We'll be inTouch!
