As the Lead Wedding Planner, Floral Designer, and Stylist of AE&F, I often call myself an industry disrupter. I do it all because your event deserves the close attention to detail that myself and my team deliver. We’re obsessed with event curation, and when it comes to creating a perfectly cohesive wedding day, IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS!
Most would say, “Who would even notice that?” We do! And we treat every tiny detail of your wedding day like someone else notices it too.
Our motivation is our passion for beauty combined with devotion to our couples. We want to get to know you, not just as clients but as people, so we can execute thoughtfully personalized designs that tell your story. Turning your vision into reality while exceeding your wildest dreams is our mission!
I believe God is the Creator who has called us to spread His love and beauty, and my faith is the heart behind everything I do.
I am also conscious of my carbon footprint and strive for sustainability!
I value community over competition and building relationships with other vendors. I believe it is essential to invest into workshops and education opportunities to continue to master my craft to better serve you. I also thrive off of constructive criticism to perfect my services.
I’m a Pennsylvania girl living in the charming city of Lancaster, but I’m also down to travel! When I’m not planning every detail of your event and designing your dream florals, you can find me relaxing with my kiddos, Henry and Elle, and enjoying nachos and a margarita catered by my live-in chef/husband, Austen.
Raya isn’t just a beautiful person but also a friend. She lent an ear when I was stressed and was even willing to walk me down the aisle when I didn’t think I could do it alone. She coordinated the whole day with effortless grace and made our wedding memorable. Our guests still talk about it a year later! She was also my biggest fan and made me feel like a million bucks. I have never regretted my investment! Believe me: Raya is worth it!

FUN FACT #4
I’m never not in the mood for margarita rimmed with spicy Tajin.
FUN FACT #3
I’m the true definition of organized mess. At work, I am a go-getter and ready to keep you on track. But at home, there is probably a huge pile of laundry that I need to put away.
FUN FACT #2
I’m fluent in Russian, and am a small-town girl with a love for the city.
FUN FACT #1
I’m an Enneagram 3 (the Achiever!) with a type 2 wing. I’m driven, but I’m also a relationship-seeker who loves to help others! My texts to you will usually start with “Hey, babe…” and end with heart emojis.
