Let's Chat!

At Weddings by Regina Marie, we believe that each wedding is a truly unique experience.  Since becoming a wedding planner in 2017, I've helped couples just like you plan the wedding that THEY wanted, not the wedding that society expects them to have.

There are two major traits that help me achieve this:

First, before becoming a Wedding Planner, I was a charge nurse on an Alzheimer's/dementia unit for seven years. This experience has helped me serve clients like you because I bring leadership, creativity, empathy and a calm demeanor to all of my events. 

Second, as a black woman and one-half of an interracial couple where both partners are members of the LGBTQIA+ community, I know what it's like to try to "fit in" with societal norms.  I don't like it when people try to get me to conform to their "norms", and I don' expect you to either.

My role as your Wedding Planner is NOT to try to fit your wedding plans into a pretty little lace wrapped box. It is to guide you through planning a wedding that not only reflects the two of you as a couple, but also makes your guests feel welcome and cared for throughout the day. Not many planners can say the same.

I'm a Certified Wedding Planner & Coordinator, Travel Specialist, and the creator and co-host of The 'We Do' Wedding Podcast. I’m a mom to two very unique kids (Aiden and Arya) and a monster of a dog (Khaleesi). We live with my partner Dan, surrounded by a collection of movies, records and comic books. I'm a lover of… too many things to name here (but I'll give you the essentials)! Our family is passionate about Disney (we go to Disney World every year), Harry Potter, board games and baking, cozy movie nights and traveling.

I was a nurse for seven years before becoming a Wedding Planner, working on busy units that required me to multitask and prioritize in order to be as efficient as possible while literally saving lives. While I loved taking care of my patients, I was missing a creative outlet and jumped back into event planning and designing, something I'd done since high school. As a true believer in the saying "If you're going to do something, do it right", I earned my Wedding & Event Planning certifications from The Association of Bridal Consultants and QC Career School. I also earned Wedding & Event Design certifications from QC Career School and the Institute of Wedding & Event Design.

I love continuing my education and learning new trends and processes. Since launching my business in 2017, I've attended numerous educational workshops, including those taught by celebrity event planners, including David Tutera, Sasha Souza, Preston Bailey, Renee Dalo and Terrica Skaggs. I am currently in a mentorship program run by celebrated wedding planner and wedding industry educator Candice Coppola to ensure that I am always prepared to give my clients the best service possible.
