The dream team!

Haley and Leighann are the BEST! From our first phone call, I knew that they were the perfect match for our destination wedding! They are both so organized, detailed, kind, (and FUN!) and offered so much help and advice along the way as we were planning. I still can’t get over the amazing and detailed timeline that they created for us, our wedding party and vendors. They took the time to get to know us and what was important to us so they always had our best interests at heart. I had so many people tell me I didn’t seem stressed or nervous on the day of my wedding – and I truly have the RaeBird girls to thank for that. They had all the details taken care of and I was so confident that they had everything under control. We had the most perfect wedding day followed by an amazing & fun reception. I am so grateful for Haley and Leighann and I can’t imagine our day without them!

Thank you RaeBirds!!

I can’t say enough about how incredible Haley & Leighann are! Their love and passion for weddings is evident in their knowledge of the industry, attention to detail, helpfulness with giving advice & problem solving, professionalism, and the fun energy they bring to the wedding day! When I doubted my vision or panicked over venue layouts, Haley & Leighann were always there to give great insight and much needed reassurance. On the day of my wedding, they were AMAZING! From the moment they greeted me in the bridal loft to the end of the night, they made my husband and I feel so special & celebrated. They brought my vision to life and made the day run so seamlessly. Many of our friends & family were so impressed with how friendly and organized they were and we echo those compliments. They are a FANTASTIC team! HIGHLY RECOMMEND, 10/10!

Hi there, Haley here! I am an Arkansas native who now claims Florida as Home. I grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas and graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2014, WOO PIG! My passion and attention to detail has been engrained in me for years but my enthusiasm for weddings + events came after planning my own! I can’t wait to help provide the same joy I felt on my wedding day to all of our future brides. Outside of planning weddings + events with RaeBird, I am likely at the beach, sipping a glass of Pinot Noir & spending time with handsome husband, Andy and our dog,Crew.
