About

Little Acorn Events is here to make your wedding dream a reality, and to uplift all the details, big & small, that make your story your own. We believe in cultivating relationships with her clients in order to understand their love story & their vision for their big day.

A former teacher, owner & lead planner Mia leaned into her passion for weddings and started Little Acorn Events in 2018, transferring traits she garnered in the classroom such as meticulous organization, communication, and compassion for those around her. Since then, she has built relationships with vendors & venues throughout central Virginia, and considers it an absolute honor to work with couples throughout the planning process leading up to their big day. Whether you're looking for someone to completely take the reigns, or someone to execute your well-laid plans, LAE is here to celebrate your love & create a feeling of absolute calm & joy on your big day.

Mia became a wedding planner because she truly holds a passion for life's "big moments", and for celebrating milestones with those you love most. She strives to truly see each client as an individual, and to seek to uplift the core values of her clients on their wedding day. Whatever is special to you, she will attend to each detail with utmost care to ensure that your love story is as unique as you & your partner. At LAE, we believe in equality, in embracing differences, and learning from each other, and we carriy these values into our interactions with clients.

LAE is amazing!

Mia and her team were fantastic! They went above and beyond throughout the entire process. We did a lot of research and met with a lot of potential wedding planners and definitely found the perfect fit.

Mia is amazing!

Mia is the BEST! If I can recommend only 1 vendor from my entire wedding, it would be Mia and her team. They were amazing and so incredibly professional. They made our special day so stress free and easy for us. Thank you, Mia!

Book for the MOST FUN wedding experience!

Mia & her team were key & essential to our wedding day - but most importantly, in the year leading up to it. We booked a partial planning package with LAE and Mia was amazing at delegating fun tasks to us while taking care of business that was challenging for us from abroad. We had a small 40 person wedding on a lake in Virginia (not an easy location to get vendors to agree to do!) and she curated such an amazing vision that totally aligned with our vision. LAE used awesome digital platforms like aisle planner and honeybook that helped us and our families track everything going on. She was able to suggest ideas and vendors that totally made us realize she "gets" us as a couple. Personality wise, Mia felt like a best friend we were planning our wedding alongside; however, professionally her knowledge of the industry and authority with decision making and keeping things on track was a huge comfort to us. We were both in two different locations and never close to our wedding location, often making phone calls to Mia from across the globe and needing to coordinate time zones. I am still amazed at how perfect everything turned out. This was the absolute best thing we spent budget on for our wedding because it allowed us to relax and enjoy the process rather than thinking of our wedding like a constant "to-do-list". Mia was a great listener, balanced our different opinions, helped sort through tension with vendors, guests, weather, and other situations flawlessly. Most importantly, she was a great communicator and incredibly responsive within a reasonable timeframe. Even though LAE is an incredibly successful business, we felt like we were their most important clients at all times! We are forever grateful for Mia and LAE's work, kindness, patience, and care.
