Wedding Planning & Floral Design
My name is Debbie Quinn, the owner of To Have and To Hold. I love helping brides with the most important day of their life. Between the flowers and planning, I can make the day special even if you don't have a lot of money to spend. My idea of a wedding planner is someone who is there for the bride ...and the groom, of course. Not only during the planning stages, but also the day of the wedding. Someone who is reliable and detailed, but most of all, aware of feelings that are involved with planning a wedding.
When I had my wedding 25 years ago, there was not much information or someone to walk along side to help. My mother and I had to go through it blindly until a wonderful lady stepped up and offered to coordinate the wedding at the church. After my wedding was over, I realized how much fun it was to plan weddings and parties. So, I started offering help to my friends and family for fun. I have been planning weddings off and on for 25 years now. And I love it!! I've been coordinating in my church, worked at venues, and planned home and garden weddings. It's a lot of work but so rewarding when the day finally comes for that bride you've been working with. It's interesting how trends come and go, certain traditions stay, some are changed slightly, but one thing never changes, the bride will always go down the aisle!
