creative at heart and lover of love

Meet Marcie

I LOVE life! I guess that’s why I love my job so much, because it’s all about celebrating life and LOVE. I was born creative; it is a gift. As a kid I loved to draw, pick flowers … I would rearrange my room constantly! I wanted to go to art school, but it wasn’t in the cards back then. But God allowed me to use my gifts in so many other ways over the years , all being pieces of the puzzle which has lead to “Celebrating Love by Marcie”… His timing was perfect!

I have been planning and designing weddings now for over 8 yrs and I truly grow to love it more and more. We are a boutique business so I only take on about 5-6 Full Planning & Design clients a year. I want to continue to enjoy my work and to be able to serve my clients with a full heart. 
 I want them to feel loved and well taken care of as we plan the biggest day of their life!

I am blessed with two incredible men in my life and now a beautiful daughter-n-law. My husband and I have been married almost 29yrs now. He recently retired from 25 yrs of law enforcement service and TRULY is my Hero! They are my world and I am TRULY blessed. 

I tend to be a “go with the flow” kinda girl, BUT I get very focused when I get in “the zone”. When the light bulb goes off for a project
 I am working on, I am in my bliss and even sometimes forget to stop and eat! I love to laugh and have been told I give awesome hugs!

my guy


This is my INCREDIBLE husband Dan! He retired almost a year ago after 25 years of service in law enforcement, nineteen of which was as a detective in the Violent Crimes Unit. He has seen the worse in humanity and yet still has such love and compassion in his heart. He is an incredibly talented musician and I'm loving watching him rediscover that at this stage in life. We have been married over 30 years now. He TRULY is my hero and makes me laugh ALL the time!

my son


This my awesome son Josh (JD) God may have only given us one child but boy did He bless us! He is also an incredible musician . He is a professional drummer. He is one of the kindest and most thoughtful people I know. To know him is to love him. He also makes me laugh so much! He inspires me in the pursuit of being brave and chasing your dreams. That's why he moved to Minnesota 4 yrs ago... to do just that! And that is where he eventually met his now wife Britt... our precious daughter-n-law. In 2020 they moved to Nashville to pursue even bigger dreams!


my dog

Willow came into our lives 1 month before the country shut down because of the pandemic.
That sure was God's perfect timing. 
She is the sweetest and funniest dog we have ever owned and we had 2 other great dogs!
We like to say she is a little "joy bomb" because she brings joy everywhere she goes. 
I'm pretty sure I kiss her lil head 100x a day!
