Sunset wedding on Panama City Beach

Planning a beach wedding on Northwest Florida’s Emerald Coast — Panama City Beach, Mexico Beach, 30A, Destin, or Ft. Walton? I offer customized planning and decorating services. I have more than 18 years of experience planning weddings, receptions, and events for families and companies alike. With the expertise and relationships with area vendors and venues let me provide you with the personal attention and peace of mind you deserve.

My Story

My name is Misty and I am a professional wedding planner at The Celebration Place. I actually went to college to be a teacher, receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from University of West Florida in 2005. When my mom, and founder of The Celebration Place, started to succumb to her battle with lupus I decided to start working with her full time. Now, I am able to not only help people achieve their ideal wedding, but also fulfill my mom’s dreams. I’ve spent the last 15 years working as a wedding planner and it is absolutely the job I was meant to have! Often I get just as excited, if not more excited, about my clients’ weddings because they just bring me so much joy!! I get to experience one of the happiest day of peoples lives, EVERY DAY! Life can’t get much better than that!

I have such a passion for this business. It brings me immense joy to see people so happy and so in love. The proud look on the parents’ faces while their children sign up for this lifetime of love and happiness… It is breathtaking! I can only imagine how I will feel when my small children get to this phase of life.

My desire as your wedding planner is to bring your thoughts to reality — To make this special day stress free and enjoyable. I want you to look back on this moment and remember the beautiful celebration of love you have for each other. I want there to be a warmth in your heart, a feel good moment when you reflect on the day that you and I spent time to plan and prepare. I want you to remember the moments you shared with your family and your bridesmaids as you prepared to walk down the aisle and say “I Do” to the man of your dreams!

That’s the wish I have for you, not stressing over details, handling all the last-minute tasks and tackling those unexpected challenges. Choosing me as your planner comes with a lot! I will be excited with you and for you, and I will ask a LOT of questions. There is always more to the wedding than you think! We will talk A LOT- maybe even over lunch! We will be in lock-step the entire time, so I will know exactly what you want the day of the wedding. After all, this day is all about YOU!

We are experts in logistics, hiring reliable and experienced vendors, managing staff, overseeing event execution and more. And we LOVE what we DO!
