Katie Scully, Owner + Wedding Director

Congratulations on your engagement! My wedding day was one of the happiest {most stress-free & joyous} days of my life & I'm on a mission to make sure yours is absolutely perfect for you & your soon to be spouse!

Ever since I was a little girl, I've been a people-serving, girly-detail-loving, go-after-your-dreams, type gal. I found joy in ballet & danced competitively for years. I love the outdoors, nature, & people. Growing up, that looked like raising pigs to sell at the county fair {glamorous, I know!}, now I have an open window policy at my office & love gardening to add fresh local blooms into our floral designs! {Plus I have a HUGE soft spot for al fresco garden weddings!}

My career journey began in Palm Coast, Florida where I worked at the four-diamond Hammock Beach Resort. My love & aptitude for hospitality led me to Orlando to attend UCF's Rosen College of Hospitality Management. While studying for my degree in Event Management, I gained invaluable experience working for the world-famous Peabody Orlando Hotel, at the leading road race & Disney Running Series producer, Track Shack Events, & at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes. I met my Mister Right at Group Night at our church, he either had an interesting mustache or just a silly nametag {something we still can't seem to agree on!} that intrigued me. Straight out of college, I was hired by Hunter Vision, the best LASIK practice in Central Florida, where I had the mighty responsibility of managing all of their events & a majority of the marketing efforts. My experience at all of these top companies strengthened my leadership, productivity, & coordination skills & gave me exposure to working with high-end clientele.

Now, I'm so privileged to combine my passion for design, & my love for connecting with people, with my God given strength of focus & perseverance to manage big & small projects. I couldn't be more thrilled to own this business, & to get to work with some of the most incredible people on this planet! Trust me & my amazing team to orchestrate every last detail, we'll making planning fun, & will produce the finest, memorable wedding for you!

So far my journey has been filled with love, laughter and let's face it there were certainly some challenges in there too. After graduating college with a criminal justice degree and starting every girl's dream job at e-commerce fashion website RueLaLa, I eventually recognized my strengths of being calm in challenging situations, my discerning eye with an attention to detail & often times a photographic memory!

After getting married (to my kindergarten playmate!) and enjoying every single second of the planning process, I jumped right in and launched my own business in New England. I worked for free, yes free!, for my first year to gain the upmost experience. I planned weddings at barns and ski resorts in the picturesque state of Maine, historical homes in the suburbs of Boston, charming country inns in Connecticut, and even a working train station!

Joining my husband as he chased his own dreams, we relocated from Boston to Orlando, and I met Katie. We have been told we look like, act alike and even asked if we were sisters! Not sisters, just two lucky gals who met through a mutual friend (thanks Carly!). Now able to do weddings full time, I literally eat, sleep and dream weddings....and there's no looking back!

I am married to my high school sweet heart! We have a silly pup, Charlie, and we are obsessed. Our wedding day is still one of my faves, and it was pure magic. My favorite city is Roma (and its cacio de pepe that am still thinking about). I am a morning person - savoring sips of coffee during sunrises, I sing 90's songs while flowering, and have never eaten Chick Fil A (I'm allergic to peanuts!).

Unlike a huge portion of Orlando, I grew up in the Central Florida area and like Katie, I received my Event Management degree from the Rosen College of Hospitality. I have loved events (which is a given) from the beginning. Actually, my first large event I planned was actually my high school prom when I was a junior. It was amazing and such a fun experience.

I am married to an Atlanta transport, Pittsburg loving man. Like Katie and Em, my wedding day was a dream. After a month of knowing each other, we knew this was it (I know how lovesick that sounds, but that's what happened!). Now, don't worry I didn't get married that same month and drive my family and wedding vendors insane, but we did get engaged shortly after and then planned the perfect wedding. :)

My event management spectrum is quite versatile. I have managed fundraising galas, grand wine tastings and golf tournaments (just to name a few!) I love incorporating all of the details and watching them materialize. I actually met Katie at work but worked many of her marketing events (trade shows and 5Ks) with Hunter Vision.

I am definitely the administrative one of the group. I love my “to-do” lists and post it notes. Like Em, I am a morning person (as long as I have a cup of coffee). I find joy and happiness in completing tasks and planning out the logistics.

Along the way, I have learned many tips and secrets I can’t wait to share with you!! Happy Planning!!
