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 reading, scoping out the next AIRBNB I'm planning to stay in with my husband Matt, cleaning my house or cooking while listening to a podcast. I LOVE to cook! I guess that's part of why I love my job: making beautiful things, hosting people, making them feel special and giving them a new experience is all second nature to me and even if it's just a couple of family members that I'm setting the table for, I believe that going above and beyond is where it's at. I'm a black lab mama, a bucket-lister, a Type-A highlighter hoarder and a Wedding Fairy. I'm SGO's Owner and Lead Planner and I can't wait to make wedding magic with you!
Favorite wedding movie: Father of the Bride with Steve Martin
US wedding destination dreams: Alaska or Montana
Wedding trends I'm loving: Earthy tones and 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
