From client to friend to teammate, meet Bryana!

 

During the work week she works at a local orthodontic office making their smile goals come true! Bryana loves planning weddings because she gets to be creative with the decorations as well as making the bride and grooms day what they dreamed of.

Meet Hailey! 

She graduated from UNC Charlotte with a degree in PR and is bilingual in Spanish, but has found her true passion in wedding and event planning! Hailey has been with the ACE Team since the beginning and she finally got to be a bride herself October 2020 when she married her high school sweetheart.

Her own wedding experience has inspired her creative-eye and mind behind @hailey_elizabeth_designs now offering rentals, personalized signs and decor, and handwritten calligraphy!
