THE EVERGREEN WEDDING JOURNEY

Hi, I'm Lacey! Before I begin, no…I have never watched J. Lo’s The Wedding Planner. And I don’t have sketches and diary entries from my childhood when I was dreaming up my own wedding. In fact, becoming a wedding planner was never even on my radar. I knew I wanted to own a business, I knew I was good at planning parties and events, I knew I was good at decorating and design (thanks, Pier 1!), and I knew I was organized, insightful, and proactive. When I found myself in an ill-fitting Monday-Friday, 9-5 desk job, I couldn’t help but think of ways to get out of it, as well as what it would be like to be the hero I had needed on my own wedding day.

Finding Ways to Skip the cliche expectations of the wedding industry

I was your classic Type-A, Self-Proclaimed-DIY-Bride that thought she could handle everything (AKA: a massive control freak). By the time we realized we could benefit from a professional coordinator, we had maxed out our budget, couldn’t make it happen and thus a family member offered to carry the job title. To this very day, I still cringe when I think of all the things we planned for that didn’t happen, and all the things that happened that we didn’t plan for. Needless to say, I deeply regret skipping out on such a necessary, vital role to a wedding day. And so I adopted my newest life goal: To never let another bride or groom feel the same unnecessary stress that we felt in planning our own wedding - whether it be from wading through all the voices and opinions, wondering where to even begin or how to budget, and how to feel certain in your decisions.

My absolute favorite part of being a wedding planner is serving from a place of friendship and companionship with my couples.

I shadowed other planners, I networked throughout the industry, I took courses, read books, scoured articles and blogs, and offered free Wedding Coordinating services to 7 gracious couples who didn’t know me from Adam, but believed in me enough to allow me the opportunity to build this business through hands-on experience. Evergreen Weddings was officially launched in August 2019 and I have had the greatest joy of sending the most amazing couples down the aisle to say their “I Dos!” and getting to call it WORK.

I'm a sucker for tradition when it means something - otherwise, it's time to start new ones! I am well known for my ability to make a house a home, my chocolate chip cookies, opting for hugs over handshakes, and my quick witted, and sometimes slightly inappropriate, sense of humor.
