Hi! I’m Ceri and I’ve lived in Knoxville for over 30 years. I originally got interested in event planning when I planned and executed my very own wedding over a decade ago. I was given a pretty tight budget but still wanted the fairytale wedding I had always dreamed about. Several emails and phone calls later, I did have the perfect wedding and continue to have a fire for helping others achieve their perfect occasion. Later, came my daughters, I had the best time organizing, planning and hosting the most fun backyard birthday parties — and this was BEFORE Pinterest — GASP! With my children now in the ‘sleepover only’ phase, I am eager to get back in the arena of helping others achieve their magical event. Given an expansive or modest budget, I can work with you to get things in place as well as be at the event to help make sure things run smoothly – if that’s what you desire, of course.


A little more about me and my family! Like I said, I have two daughters, but I also have two sons (younger). I am married to the hardest working man that I know, who can still do a chin-up at the playground! We are nestled in the Cedar Bluff area of Knoxville and have chosen to homeschool our family, at least for the time being. We love to vacation with our extended family that is spread out over the continental US. We also enjoy hosting backyard cookouts and bonfires with friends. I am a degree-holding UTK alum with a passion for customer service. In fact, I worked my senior year of high school at a local bank as a teller and continued in the field for over a decade. My heart lies in helping others. From taking a meal to a family with a new baby or lost loved one, to donating gently used items to KARM, or simply praying over my friends, family, or country, I have a heart to serve others. How can I serve you or your organization today?
I am extremely organized and a natural-born multitasking planner! From small birthday parties to full scale weddings and every event in between, I’m your girl.
