Erika moved to Chattanooga with her husband three years ago from Alabama. She discovered her love for event planning in college, even though she always believed she had the skills for it. She attended Troy Alabama and received a degree in Hospitality Management & Event Management. During that experience, she realized her dream of working in the industry was more than attainable. Being a wedding planner is the perfect marriage between hard work and having fun!
Erika’s planning background began in college where she has three years of experience in social / recreational event planning. Two years ago she joined the wedding side of things when she joined the Wildflower Wedding Planning team! She is known for having pristine attention to detail and a structured workflow that gives her clients the confidence they need to trust her fully with their big day!
It’s so hard for her to choose her favorite part of each wedding day because each couple is so unique, but she’s definitely partial to seeing the design finally come together, a heartfelt ceremony, and a late-night dance party! Her favorite meeting during the planning process is the final planning meeting because she loves working out all the final details that bring everything together as one! Filling in all the blanks makes her heart happy because that’s the moment she’s able to really envision the cohesive wedding day!
Erika loves a variety of styles, but she leans toward contemporary / traditional styles that incorporate both traditional and trendy elements. She gets super excited about designs that tie in lots of florals, personal touches and neutral tones.
She is an ENFJ (extroverted, intuitive, feeling, judging) personality type on the Myers-Briggs scale. She connects with this description most in her love of being around and collaborating with others. She is very organized and thrives in structured environments. She values the good of others and leans heavy on her feelings. She is very optimistic, passionate and forward thinking with very high standards for herself and others.
