Hi! I'm Kerri
Where do I even begin? I was born a California girl on a military base. At age 10 my parents packed us up and moved our family, Great Dane, and all to the small town of Amite, Louisiana. The years flew by and off to LSU I went. I graduated with a degree in history and political science with the intention of being a teacher. As planned, that’s just what I did. I very quickly realized that teaching was not what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I did not have the special teacher gene. However, there was something about it that I truly adored. The planning, the themes, transforming the classroom with every lesson…that is where my talent was.
Again the years flew by. I moved from teaching to law working for the East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s office and back to LSU to get my paralegal certification and that’s when it happened. That time in your life when all your friends start getting married and having babies. For no other reason than the fact that I volunteered, I suddenly found myself surrounded by to do lists and craft store bags. In roughly 18 months I planned and assisted with multiple baby showers, bridal showers, birthday parties, bachelorette weekends, and weddings all while working two jobs and going to school. Needless to say I got good at time management VERY QUICKLY. But in the midst of all the chaos I learned what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.
These days I live in Lafayette, LA with my husband, Matthew, our son Rhett, and our dog Lola. I’ve worked on everything from local campaign events to out of state weddings. Although I realized my passion for planning through weddings, I can do it all, be whatever you need. If it’s important to you, it’s important to me. I can bring your vision to life no matter how big or small. I love challenging my creativity and testing my imagination. Whether you want to hand me the reigns completely or just have me there to cross the T’s and dot the I’s on the big day, I’m your girl!
This has evolved over the years but I think the overwhelming theme has been happiness. I’m a planner, a problem solver, a fixer at heart. Lists and timelines and layouts make me happy. I’m also a creative and I love helping people make their event scream “THIS IS ME”. Floral designs and color palettes and personalized touches make me happy. And let’s be real, this also allows me to make some extra money so that I can go on a vacation with my family, put some away for when we’re old or buy that Starbucks caramel macchiato for the 15th day in a row. That freedom makes me happy.
