Owner and Primary Consultant
I’m a born and raised Tulsan who has loved weddings for as long as I can remember. Throughout my childhood, I had many differing aspirations for what I wanted to be when I grew up, but my love for weddings never wavered. And ultimately that love triumphed over every other career aspiration.
Though my love for weddings has been a constant in my life, my love for the wedding industry was an acquired taste. In high school I worked for a local photographer where I got my first taste of working with brides and I loved it. In college I worked for a couple of bridal gown boutiques helping brides select the dress and I loved it. I loved all this wedding stuff so much that I enrolled in the nearest wedding consultant training program put on in Dallas by the Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants. I completed that course in April 2004. The next month I did my first wedding as a Wedding Coordinator and… I hated it. That’s the God’s honest truth. I convinced myself that I had selected the wrong career path. So, I went back to college and studied Business Management in the hopes that I would figure something else out.
While completing college, I had multiple friends and family who asked me to coordinate their wedding. Of course, I couldn’t say no to them. But, much to my surprise, the second wedding was easier than the first. And the third wedding was even… fun? I couldn’t believe it. Nonetheless, the job grew on me over those three years. And, in 2007, right after graduating from Northeastern State University with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration, I officially started Erica Weddings.
Since being in business, Erica Weddings has successfully planned/coordinated over 150 weddings. With each client, my love for weddings and the wedding industry grows more and more. I consider it an enormous privilege to do what I do: to be included in my clients’ special day in the most extraordinary way. I’m honored to call my brides my friends and I hope I can do the same with you. Contact me today so we can get started!
