HI, I'M GRACE!
Enthusiastic. Spunky. Imaginative. Hungry.
These are words that describe me on any given day. I’m a girl who appreciates both a sweet love story and a great party, so I’ve decided to combine the two and make it my life! I love being trusted by couples to plan and oversee the first day of the rest of their lives together, and I don’t take that responsibility lightly.
When I'm not cranking out a timeline or working a wedding, I'm probably eating chips and salsa (my drug of choice), snuggling my English Lab, planning my next vacation or drinking red wine. Better yet, if I'm doing it all at the same time! My parents Bob and Mary Jo taught me what real love looks like and I'll never take that for granted. Besides being wedding-obsessed since the moment I first saw Father of the Bride, I'm a dinner party planning, AIRBNB loving, Jenna Kutcher fangirling, bucket-listing wedding fairy and I can't wait to meet you. I'm SGO's Owner and Lead Coordinator and I think I have the best job in the world. But enough about me, let's get you hitched!
Favorite accessories: Earrings and sunglasses forever!
Wedding destination I'd die to visit for work: Positano or Mykanos
Wedding trends I'm loving: Colorful florals and candles, decor that will later be repurposed in the newlywed's home together

THIS IS EMILY.
Performer. Romantic. Creative. Dreamer.
I’ve always been a romantic, a dreamer. From watching my favorite movie of all time (Titanic) to daydreaming about meeting Prince Charming in a trip across the sea (even if I have to travel back to the 18th century to meet a ruggedly handsome Scotsman *cough cough* — big Outlander fan here.). I’ve always been in love with love. Fortunately, I've been able to give all of my creative energy and love for the arts to my photography. I am owner and head photographer of Emily Nicole Photography. I’ve been photographing people on one of the happiest days of their lives for nearly a decade now and I still can’t get enough. This is where Grace comes in. (Hey, girl!) I was ready to dive even deeper into the wedding industry and Saving Grace Occasions has been such a blessing, and an exciting new venture. I’m thrilled to be working with each and every one of you to help make sure your fairy-tale wedding comes to fruition.
Favorite hobbies: fangirling over Harry Potter, planning my next vacation, running around Forest Park
Favorite piece of clothing at the moment: my high-waisted, ripped Levi jeans
My favorite moment of a wedding day: those emotional and breathtaking first looks
