What’s most important to Along Came Stephanie?

We want to tell your story on your wedding day: who you are as a couple, what makes you unique, and what inspires you. Your wedding is the beginning of your journey as a married couple, and is a reflection of your personal style, taste, and personalities. We love adding personal touches, special moments, and family traditions. We pride ourselves on our work and incorporating what matters most to each and every couple we work with.

What are your favorite parts of a wedding day?
I have two favorite moments! I love it more than anything when we have a bride & father of the bride see each other for the first time. That special moment between a daughter and her dad is so touching. I also love it when my clients see their ceremony and reception design before their guests enter the room. In that moment all of our hard work and inspiration becomes real and it’s an awe-inspiring experience that can never be forgotten.

What’s your life like behind the scenes?
Personally, I am married to my high school sweetheart, Dave, who owns a locksmith business and also works with me at Along Came Stephanie. Our daughter, Morgan, lives in Atlanta working as an IT Recruiter, and is also a member of our team. Our son, Bradley, is a fire-fighter married to a school teacher, Jordan.

What makes your company unique?
We love the challenge of creating unique events, whether that means figuring out complicated logistics or transforming spaces, and problem-solving throughout the planning process. We handle challenges with ease and professionalism. We are team players. We are a family business built on strong relationships and referrals from happy clients of the past. If you choose Along Came Stephanie, you can expect to receive the Southern hospitality and attention you crave, that no detail will be overlooked, and your day is one that both you and your guests will rave about for years to come!
