The Perfect Small Wedding
If you have a small guest list, it can be very hard to find a venue. Large venues are expensive and I was worried that my guest count of 35 would feel swallowed up by a larger place and my photos would look strange. I am so glad we found Camellia Palms, my mom sent me the link to this venue! It's a cute cute cute historic home and we had an outdoor ceremony and had our small reception up on the deck overlooking the lake. There was room for a dancing area too! Our bridal party stayed all weekend, it was great! The photographer remarked about the wonderful natural light in the bridal suite. Taylor helped with every question I had about finding other vendors and how we could set things up! It was a perfect, beautiful wedding day.Sent on 07/07/2020

Wedding Obsessed, Planning Superstar!
When I'm not making beautiful weddings happen at Camellia Palms, I can be found out on my paddleboard or traveling the world. Also, I'll never say no to the beach or a good cup of coffee.
Mover & Shaker Extraordinaire!
I love making every part of our guests' experience perfect! My secret power is finding misplaced keys & phones. I fill my spare time with making Camellia Palms' gardens beautiful, my family & quilting.
The design guru that always has a plan!
When I'm not working with brides on their wedding decor or creating custom wedding invitations in my print shop, Dilly Dally Paper Co., I can be found sitting in front of my easel, watching the newest action movie, or creating in my wood shop. When it comes to me, I love locally-brewed beer and sushi.
