there's nothing more gratifying than at that moment – the electricity in the air and pulsating beat from the band, guests of all ages excitedly crowding the dance floor and the beautiful bride, head over heels in love and beaming with happiness, catches my eye from across the room to silently mouth these words: 'Thank you so much, Stephanie'. That is why I do what I do; that’s why I pour my heart and soul into every wedding celebration I’m privileged to be a part of.

As the creative director and principal planner for every A Southern Ceremony event, I oversee every wedding detail as if it were my own.

From full service wedding planning and event design, creative floral artistry and seamless coordination execution, A Southern Ceremony exemplifies the intimate, personalized boutique approach. My passion is redefining the planning and design process for each individual couple so that truly magical moments are created and flawlessly executed. Moments that will be cherished for a lifetime.

when i’m not working, which isn’t often since i love what i do, you can find me sharing a love of great food with great friends, and drawing inspiration from contemporary art, fashion and graphic design. i love talking long walks with madeleine, my adorable bichon frise and official asc mascot, who spends so much time with our team that she’s been promoted to head of security. i couldn’t do what i do without the love and support from my family and i am eternally grateful for my wonderful husband and daughter who not only support me but understand me, including my crazy willingness to do whatever is necessary, whenever it’s necessary, no matter what.
