My name is Ivy Ferguson, I’m 26 and I absolutely love my job! After planning my own wedding and helping a few friends plan their weddings, I realized this was the career for me. I have always loved being in social situations, so what is better than directing a party every weekend! In fact, my friends growing up said I would aspire to be a party planner. If that isn’t foreshadowing then I don’t know what is!
Planning a wedding can be a stressful time in a couple’s life. I am here to take as much stress away and make sure that the planning process is an enjoyable time. My main goal is to have my brides “in the moment” as much as possible, not worrying about the little things. As a wedding planner, I think it is very important to get to know your clients on a somewhat personal level. Knowing how someone deals with stress is a great tool to use when trying to rid your client of any worries they may have. The last thing you want is a wedding day meltdown!
On a more personal note, I have been married for a little over 1 year to a wonderful man named John. We have been together for a total of 7 awesome years! I instantly fell in love with gorgeous smile (and great beard!) the moment I met him. We have adopted four sweet dogs over the years (huge dog lover alert!). Eventually, we would like to have some land for foster dogs. John and I currently live in Blue Ridge, Ga. We love living in the north Georgia mountains, and so do our dogs! We go on hikes, kayaking trips, and visit Lake Blue Ridge on a regular basis. I am also a big fan of traveling! John and I visit Seaside, Florida at least two times a year. My aunt has a beach cottage, named “Gail Forced”, that I grew up visiting with my family and friends. It is my favorite place and my heart overflows with happiness when I am there!

I grew up with very outgoing and wonderful parents! I was lucky enough as a kid to experience so many wonderful things. My mom is the most creative and crafty person I have EVER met. She hand made most of mine and my younger brother’s halloween costumes growing up, gifts for my teachers, and so much more. My dad is the hardest working, best “handy man” around. He is the guy I call if I hear a funny noise coming from my car. He is such a light hearted and carefree dad, I am so thankful for this! Both of my parents are so wonderful and the reason I am who I am.
I am very passionate about my life and my career! I believe both should be full of fun and happiness. I look forward to sharing all of my exciting adventures with you! Stay tuned 🙂
