I’m Tina, owner and creative director of Love & Honey. I’ve been joyfully planning weddings around the country for over 6 years. I’ve worked within many facets of the event and design industry, which has greatly influenced my planning and design approach. My experience lies in public relations, hotel hospitality, venue management, catering management, interior design, and visual merchandising. I started Love & Honey over 4 years ago, and have since planned over seventy fabulous weddings and events. I'm humbled that L&H has grown into an award-winning studio that has been nationally recognized in both print and online publications.
A lot goes into planning your wedding. Probably more than you ever imagined. Between to-do-lists, balancing your budget, and booking a team of vendors: there are tough decisions and moving parts to navigate when planning an event of this scale. All while facing a learning curve as most couples have never planned a wedding before.
Whether you enlist the help of friends and family or choose to hire industry professionals, selecting the right team of vendors to execute your weddings is crucial to the success and outcome of your big day. After all, you are entrusting the people you bring on board to understand your vision and seamlessly bring your vision to life. Your event team’s level of knowledge and expertise will make all the difference in the world when it comes to the experience of your wedding day. Working with trusted vendors will allow you to focus on what matters most; getting married and soaking in every last moment of love and joy, while celebrating with your closest friends and family.
If I could give you one piece of advice during this exciting adventure, it would be to do your homework! And by that I mean; ask the right questions, make thoughtful decisions, and arm yourself with the tools and knowledge to plan a successful and memorable event. When it comes to wedding planning, knowledge is key. If you’re just getting started in your planning journey, and are feeling a bit overwhelmed, I’m here to say not to worry! Every newly engaged couple has been in your shoes. What sets you apart is how you proceed from here. With a little guidance from trusted industry professionals who have done this time and time again, you will be on your way to creating the wedding of your dreams. Armed with insider’s knowledge, helpful tools, and an actionable game plan – there’s no doubt you will cruise through your planning process with excitement and ease.
The last thing I want is for any couple to experience the downfall of poor planning and poor decision-making when it comes to their most memorable celebration. I hear too many horror stories about couples who make costly mistakes that lead to budget issues or a negative experience on their wedding day (for both the couple and their guests). The choices you make today will affect the memory of your wedding for years to come.
This is why I’m so passionate about what I do. Every couple deserves to look back on their wedding day with merriment and joy. I believe God gave me a gift for creativity and a heart for serving others; and I love that I get to share these gifts with amazing people like you. Six years later and I’m still wildly passionate about planning weddings and working with couples during such an important season of life. Our work together is so much more than creating timelines, organizing transportation, and selecting fabulous linens. It’s an opportunity to design a space and create an experience that’s unique to you, as a couple. It’s an opportunity to tell a piece of your story, and share it with the people you love most, in an artful and inspiring way.
Are you ready to start telling your story? I’m assuming you’re here because you’re newly engaged. If that’s the case then congratulations are definitely in order! I’m so glad you’ve landed here, in my corner of the creative world. I truly hope we get the change to connect so I can hear all about the journey that lead you here today. Whether your visit here is brief, or ignites the beginning of a life-long friendship, I hope you’re able to take something with you when you go. From free downloadables and blog post tips, to hourly consultations, day-of coordination, and full planning services – we have something for everyone. After all, Love & Honey was created with you in mind. You, the savvy bride who values love, honors relationships, and envisions an awe-inspiring celebration that exudes romance, timelessness and warmth.
WE'RE SO GLAD YOU POPPED IN!
