Meet the Owner:
Hi! Thanks for your interest in Flaire Weddings & Events. My name is Cassandra (but my friends call me Cassie, and if you choose to have me accompany you through this journey of wedding planning, it is my sincere hope that we too will become friends!) I began this company in 2005, and since then I have had the pleasure of planning, designing, and coordinating more than one hundred and fifty wedding celebrations. Each event has been different – I’ve planned events for less than 50 guests and events for over 500 guests. We’ve worked with local clients and destination clients, in venues all over Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Amelia Island, and Southeast Georgia. As your planner, of course I’ll help you navigate the planning process, including finding your venue, selecting the perfect vendors, adding in gorgeous details, and orchestrating the logistics. But I also hope to help you focus on the “what’s –to-come” – the years of marriage that will follow your joyous day of celebration. Because I believe a meaningful wedding day is the perfect start to a lifetime of marriage.
A bit about me: I’m creative, laid-back, and intuitive. I’m a Christian, and I believe my life’s work is to glorify God. I’m a wife and momma of two kiddos (if you follow me on Instagram you’ll “meet” them!). I’m happiest snuggling in with a good book (I have a thing for YA dystopian fiction), traveling or spending time with my family. Quirky fact: I have a slight obsession with zombies, and I may or may not have started preparing for a future zombie apocalypse. One of my favorite things about weddings is seeing the event space transformed with stunning décor. And my favorite wedding is one in which the couple is so obviously in love that the details, while beautiful, pale in comparison to the joy that is expressed on the wedding day.
Meet our Event Coordinator:
Hi! My name is Brooke, and I started working with Flaire Weddings & Events in 2013. I’m a lover of bright colors, lush garland and happy couples. My favorite moment of a wedding is seeing families who know the wedding day is important, but won’t let anything (even rain) ruin true happiness! On wedding days I toggle between being Cassie’s assistant and the lead planner.
You’ll frequently see me setting up in the background, organizing and answering vendor questions and being the primary point of contact for any setup related wedding details! I love seeing excited faces & happy smiles, and getting the chance to transform a room with Cassie’s beautiful designs is a dream!
When I’m the lead planner, my focus and attention is on our flow and timeline of the night. I want you to relax and enjoy yourself, and leave the next steps to me! I’m almost always on the move, and giving vendors a 5 minute heads up to our next action of the evening. With us by your side, we hope to take some of the details off your plate, and put them into action on your wedding day!
A bit about me: I’m detail oriented and organized. I’m a lover of delicious food and beverage, and I have a soft spot for tasty treats (especially sea salt chocolate chip cookies)! If you see me around town, I almost always have an iced coffee in my hand (even in the chilly months). I adore my husband and our two kitties (gratuitous cat photos on my personal instagram account), and our favorite activity is traveling. I love the mountains, and my hope is to design and coordinate an intimate wedding weekend in a stunning location!
