Located in beautiful, sunny Key West, Florida, Brittany noticed her love for wedding planning at a very early age growing up in Social Circle, Georgia. She always dreamed of being a wedding planner, before even dreaming about her own wedding. Brittany was offered the opportunity of a lifetime at the age of 15 to work alongside a few experienced wedding professionals in Islamorada, Florida. She did everything she could to get down to the Keys to work, living on her grandparent’s property on the ocean. She was able to learn from the different aspects of what it takes to create a fairy tail wedding, from the flowers to the setup – even catering and contracting. After moving to Key West, she met Eric Baker, whom became her mentor – offering her the incredible opportunity to continue chasing her dreams. With her seven successful years of experience in the wedding and event planning industry, Brittany has become our lead planner for the Florida Keys.
Katie moved to Key West in March 2009. She first noticed her passion for planning events in 1995, when she was promoted from Banquet Server to VIP Host for the bride and groom.
