We are so glad that you are here!

Hey Ya'll

We are a full-service wedding + event planning dynamic duo based along the beautiful Emerald Coast. For us it all began over a glass of wine (of course) discussing our excitement for all things events. From planning birthday parties, family gatherings, GNO & even our own weddings, we discovered a passion for all things special and social. After that first glass of wine, we turned our dream into a reality, and we started RaeBird. Every detail is part of the big picture and we have the ability to fully manage events from beginning to end while planning the design and coordination.Our company is small, but our heart & hard work is big! We are ready to bring your vision to life so let’s raise a glass together!

Her passion and attention to detail has been engrained for years but enthusiasm for weddings + events came after planning her own! She can’t wait to help provide the same joy that she felt on her wedding day to all of RaeBird's future brides.

“The planning process and wedding day went so smoothly thanks to RaeBird..."
My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with RaeBird Weddings + Events!! I reached out to Haley and Leighann in the Spring of 2022 to inquire about day of coordination and design services for my wedding in June of 2022. Despite finding each other on a little bit of a shorter notice, they did not hesitate to come on board and help me plan my dream wedding. From the very first phone call I had with Haley and Leighann, they were so kind and accommodating. Throughout the the planning process, they were responsive and always made themselves available to me. We looked at inspiration pictures together, they made several great recommendations I would have never thought of, and I could tell they were so detailed-oriented and wanted to make sure everything aligned with my vision. . .
