The Team

Hi! I’m Samantha, Owner and Lead Planner

I truly enjoy the behind-the-scenes action that takes place at any event. I am a no-drama kinda gal, and will usually solve any issues without you knowing. My brides appreciate how calm I stay under pressure, and that I always handle any challenge with a smile. Guests have remarked on my team's professionalism and willingness to help (like carrying Grandma's gift in from the car, or ensuring your mom has a full glass of wine).

I began in the Hospitality Industry after finishing my degree at the University of Houston, then moved on to working in hotels and fine dining restaurants. It was during those years that I found my love for champagne, a good almond milk latte, and a perfectly, crunchy-chewy lemon macaron! 

I fully believe we should enjoy those we spend time with and work with.

Jazlynn is also a UofH grad (go coogs!) and is truly a natural when it comes to weddings. She can almost read your mind, and anticipates needs before they're spoken, (which is great for brides!).
