KHLOE JACKSON - FOUNDER

Khloe has always known she would one day own her own business, but her journey into the wedding industry was one that found her! Now, with seven years in the industry she has loved every second of being involved in events. Her background in Business after acquiring a degree from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and her experience managing an event venue made her the perfect fit for her endeavors. The venue held various types of events, but nothing compared to the equally challenging and rewarding aspects of a wedding day!

So in 2017, Wildflower Wedding Planning was born! Her goal for starting the
company was to help enrich the lives of couples planning a wedding by continuing to improve the process by making it as easy as possible to curate a day they would fondly remember for the rest of their lives! Now, she is passionate about training other wedding planners that are eager to excel in this industry! She is a huge idea person, and has lots of big plans to expand the services Wildflower Wedding Planning provides! Her newest adventures include expanding services to Nashville, Atlanta, Knoxville & Birmingham, breaking into the travel & honeymoon planning industry, and she has created a mentoring program for other women that want to start their own wedding planning businesses!

When she’s not obsessing over weddings, her life consists of going to hot yoga, catching a live music show, trying new restaurants with friends & her boyfriend Charlie, and chipping away at her travel bucket list!

EMILEI DISBROW - WEDDING PLANNER

Whether it’s weddings, casual dinner parties, birthday parties, graduation parties, corporate events, receptions, anniversary parties, retirement parties, baby showers, bridal showers, you name it, Emilei’s planned it. Amongst her friends and family, she is better known as the “hostess queen” and even the smallest of dinner parties become an exciting opportunity for her to put her “event planning skills” to the test, and no detail is left unthought of. Growing up, her mom hosted people in their home weekly and always made them feel comfortable and special, no matter what the occasion was. It was through those memories and moments that her love of people and events began to blossom and, early on, she knew that she wanted to make a career out of creating one of a kind experiences for people where they can come and feel carefree and be “wined and dined”. 

In 2013, she graduated from Lee University with a degree in Public Relations. A few months after graduation, she married her husband, Andrew. They live in Cleveland, TN and have two “fur-babies”, Dizzy and Oliver Lee. After graduation, she worked in mainly corporate jobs while, on the side, broadening her horizon of event and wedding planning. Then, at the beginning of 2020, she came across the opportunity to “dip her toes” into the official wedding planning industry when she became an intern at Wildflower. After a year of being part-time at Wildflower, she decided to leave the comfort of the desk behind and fully immerse herself into her true passion and become a full-time wedding planner within the company. Becoming a part of the team at Wildflower has truly been one of her most cherished moments of her life and career and getting to learn and work with such an amazing team of boss babes has forever changed her life! 

As an enneagram one, when it comes to weddings, her approach is not much different from her approach in her everyday life… to do it with excellence and create a seamless event. An “okay” event is not good enough and she holds herself and her team to very high standards so that the outcome is the best that it can be!! It is her greatest goal for the couple to be able to enjoy their day, feel like royalty and make memories that they could never even imagine. All the while also creating an environment where their friends and family feel comfortable, cared for and leave, never forgetting the couple’s big day and the memories made! Although she would classify her favorite wedding style to be the more timeless, romantic and classic, she loves getting to do all different styles and trends and trying new things with her clients!  Her favorite part of the wedding planning process is when it is time for that final planning meeting and you begin to really see everything come together and take shape. She loves getting into the timeline and creating the most perfect flow for the wedding day and the floor plan… she loves herself a good floor plan;) Her favorite part of the wedding day is getting to spend time with the couple and their bridal party. She loves getting to see everyone’s interactions with one another and those special moments shared between the couple and their people. 

More About Emilei

Coffee Order: 

Nitro Cold Brew… give me all the caffeine please!! 

 

Favorite type of food: 

I’m a sucker for some good Asian food! 

Although, on wedding day, if time allows,  you can find me at First Watch for breakfast;)) 

 

Favorite place you have visited: 

I have had the privilege to travel all over the world. I grew up in Germany and while it is ‘home’ and nothing beats it, I would say my second favorite place that I have gone and that I dream about often is Boracay, Philippines. One day I will go back and be reunited with those beautiful white sandy beaches!

Favorite TV show: 

By far, Schitt’s Creek… who doesn’t just love the Roses?!?! 

 

Fun fact about you: 

I love to sing and in 2013, I had the great opportunity to go and sing at the Presidential Inauguration in Washington D.C. 

 

When you’re not wedding planning, what brings you joy? 

I love being with my people. My favorite moments are usually nights spent at my house with my closest friends, eating good food, laughing and making the most valuable memories together!

ERIKA ALLEN - WEDDING PLANNER

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 people 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.
