As a prior English teacher, I love telling each of my couple's love story. Each story is unique and in a culmination of love and a little planning, the wedding day brings that love to life in front of family and friends. As a lover of heirlooms and legacies, it's a joy to be alongside each of my couples as they create memories that will last forever for their children and grandchildren!

I'm ali rae.

Weddings

2020 was a gray cloud, but it certainly did have its silver linings. While I was initially discouraged looking back on the year, with some introspection I realized that amended goals are not failed goals. Many lessons were learned and accomplishments were made, and I could not be more thankful for my clients, family, and friends!
