Neillie Butler of Mariée Ami

What made you want to start being a wedding planner?
I have no idea! I randomly wanted to be a wedding planner when I was 15. I attended my first bridal show with my mom and it has stuck with me ever since. I love taking care of people. Weddings are a beautiful way to take care of a bride during the most important time of her life.

What do you think has made Mariée Ami Successful?  
Passion. I love what I do and I can honestly say there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for a client. 100% of our business is based on referral so our happy clients is what brings us success.

What’s your favorite part of planning a wedding?
I love planning out the logistics. It is like a big puzzle. Without a good plan, the wedding we have worked so hard on will not happen. I love to solve a problem and people the person who makes anything happen!

What are some of your favorite new wedding trends?
I am loving all the furniture used in weddings. I am thankful for the brides who look at the decor as more than just the flowers but the furniture, textures and lighting that enhance the floral design.

Where do you draw inspiration?
The best design plans come from a cool object, neat linen, vibrant color, piece of furniture or sense of style. The latest two design plans have come from paintings that hang in our office.

What is your favorite time of the year to plan a wedding?
I love January! It is a little more crisp and usually has a little more glam. January has been very beautiful and surprisingly warm over the last few years which has made for some beautiful weddings.
