Stella & Co.
It is our mission to make the planning process smooth, stress free, and most of all FUN! We take your vision and make it come to life! By selecting the very best vendors, managing your budget and creating a custom timeline, we take care of the planning so you can concentrate on enjoying this exciting time of your life. Based out of Brandon, Mississippi, we work with brides all over our state and also all over the Southeastern United States. If you have a destination wedding, we love to travel!
I love that my job keeps me on my toes and takes me on crazy adventures. I am married to my college sweetheart and have planted our roots in my hometown, where we both have careers that involve serving others, a joy of ours. We both attended The University of Mississippi and enjoy a weekend in Oxford or any small quaint Mississippi town when my event schedule allows.
While obtaining my degree in Hospitality Management, I took a summer internship with a well known wedding planner, and that quickly turned into a part-time job because of my passion for this industry. The more events I worked on, the more I realized how much I loved all the sentimental details that go into a wedding. Following college, I moved back to pursue wedding planning in central Mississippi. In 2011, I took a leap of faith, opened Stella & Co. Events, hoping to do ten events a year, and here we are over 220 "Stellebrations" later.
I am an associate planner and the lead graphic designer at Stella & Co. Events. I'm originally from the D.C. area, but I fell in love with Mississippi while attending The University of Mississippi where I obtained my degree in Graphic Design and Art. My husband and I have a full house with our 2 year old son, a baby girl on the way, and two dogs. I still pinch myself from time to time as a reminder that my dream job has become a reality. I have created custom monograms, invitation suites, thank you cards, and custom stationery pieces for many years. Designing special wedding details are my favorite part of the planning process. My husband is also an artist, so together we can create any style of design you are looking for.
