It takes more than just a keen eye for design, attention to detail and passion for weddings to be a wedding planner. Our Lead Planning team came to Mother of the Bride with wonderful life and work experience but then had to undergo extensive training to ensure they "get it" in the real world of weddings.
Beginning her career as a corporate event planner for a worldwide company, Cally brings more than 10 years of event planning experience.
