Hi, I'm Lacey! Before we dive in, I need you to know something really important: I see you. I understand you. And I'm here to help you and celebrate you. I was a bride myself in 2018 and the amount of change the wedding industry has undergone since then is mind-boggling. Everything's bigger, everything's better, and everything is a lot more "in-your-face" thanks to social media. The fuel to my passion is remembering how burdensome it was to be a bride myself, and recognizing that things have only gotten more difficult in the last 5 years. I am here to calm the storm of wedding planning and offer relief through customized and personable planning guidance and resources. Anyone who says wedding planning isn't fun hasn't met me yet!
I was your classic Type-A, Self-Proclaimed-DIY-Bride that thought she could handle everything (AKA: a control freak). By the time we realized we could benefit from a professional coordinator, we had maxed out our budget and just couldn't make it happen. To this very day, my palms still sweat 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 another 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.
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!”
I'm also 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 sarcastic sense of humor.
