The Whole Shebang continually strives to help you create a one-of-a-kind, beautiful, and creative wedding in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
I absolutely love what I do and there is a real joy in the process of creating a relaxed and fun environment that allows a bride to create her own unique vision of a perfect wedding day. My job is to pull together every aspect of your vision and handle all of the details so that your wedding day is beautiful, memorable, stress-free, and uniquely YOURS! Whatever your dream, I will help you find innovative ways to make it happen, and guide you every step of the way.
Born and raised along the coast in Southport, North Carolina, I’d always dreamed of living in the mountains. I found my way to the Blowing Rock area of the High Country in 2005 where I met my husband Paul and started a family. I have been involved in many aspects of the wedding industry, and was at the right place at the right time to make the leap to The Whole Shebang in 2009 when Cassandra Reed, the original owner, relocated to Virginia.
Many years in the service industry experience have given me a rock-solid work ethic and allowed me to forge relationships with many on the area’s professionals, including some of the finest photographers, venue proprietors, designers, and entertainment specialists in the High Country. My love of the arts continues to be my driving force in creating a beautiful event regardless of size or scale.
I love the common thread among brides who choose to get married in the mountains. Whether you live in the area, vacationed here growing up, or attended college, there is a deep-rooted connection with nature, the outdoors, and the beauty of the High Country. Whether it’s the dream of a casual, rustic backyard BBQ, or a glamorous black tie affair, the one thing all of my brides seem to have in common is that they are creative, soulful, and eager to incorporate the majestic landscape of the Blue Ridge Mountains into the overall vision of their wedding day and share it with their closest friends and family.
My favorite wedding moment is being able to stand back and watch the bride and groom… relaxed, dancing, enjoying their moment, surrounded by loved ones, and knowing that their dream of a perfect day had come to life. It is a such blessing to witness the love between two people starting a new life together.
