ABOUT THE PLANNER, MEKINA SAYLOR

Details, couples in love, timelines, centerpieces, DIY projects, brainstorming, and creativity are all things I absolutely gush over! When I was four years old, my mom caught me having a thumb wedding. Not much has changed since then. I still get butterflies from just talking about weddings! As I got older, my love for weddings and planning grew. I find so much joy in seeing a couple in love and helping them envision how their big day will unfold. I love taking what each of them imagine and combining their ideas to create their ultimate wedding. I enjoy working out the details and helping them plan where everything will go and how it will look. I truly feel I was born to plan weddings. I walk into rooms and see a whole reception unfold and go to bed at night dreaming of new ideas to incorporate on the big day. I feel so fortunate to be on this journey and can't wait to get to know you!

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER, CASSI CLAIRE

Like Mekina, I also absolutely adore all things wedding related! I am currently planning 10 of my future vow renewals on Pinterest! ;)  But I also love photography - both as a form of art and as a beautiful way to hold onto our lives. I have a crazy red afro which has led to many a debate over my ethnicity. I'm married to the most incredible man in the world, who happens to love my mysterious hair. I love LOVE, good style, and creativity...and people who love love, good style, and creativity. Wanna see more things I love?
