Planner Alyssa Helmick is a Scranton native, transplanted into the heart of the south for college. Over the last eight years, she has discovered the true meaning of “southern hospitality”, and also found her wedding planning career to be rooted in this concept. “She believed she could, so she DID .” -R.S. Grey. This quote is near and dear to Alyssa because she's a true believer that you can have a dream, but without the proper care and planning, it may always remain just that. She has been planning dreams her whole life. Planning weddings and providing bride's with the most beautiful florals has always been something she aspired to do, and it is also her passion. She takes a very personal approach and loves working one on one with clients to create beautiful and original floral artistry through her own business, The Posey Detail.
In Victoria’s eyes, there are few things more lovely than a wedding. She truly feels that weddings should reflect the personalities of the couple; music that makes people dance, speeches that bring on the tears, flowers that capture the show, and the general merriment and camaraderie of old and new friends coming together for the celebration of two people saying “yes” to forever. With an enthusiasm for life, hospitality, people, and service, it is days like these that Victoria relishes being a part of. Victoria believes that for every couple, their wedding day should be the greatest and most memorable day of their lives, and whether a wedding vision looks like a fun, lively reception, a sacred and beautiful ceremony, she loves to see couples’ dreams become reality.
