The Emerald Coast of Northwest Florida is well known for its beauty and beaches hosting many events, along with both local and destination weddings. Locals, Leighann Elliott and Haley Poveda, have founded a new company, RaeBird Wedding + Events. They will specialize in the coordination, planning and implementation of events and weddings in the region.
According to Elliott and Poveda, “RaeBird is a full-service wedding and event planning company. From planning corporate and non-profit events, birthday parties, family reunions, girls nights out, and even our own weddings, we discovered a passion for all things special and social, turning our dream into a reality by starting RaeBird Wedding + Events. We are a dynamic duo and like to say our company is small, but our heart and hard work is big. We have the ability and expertise to fully manage events from beginning to end, while planning the design and coordination. Every detail is part of the big picture.”
Unlike many wedding and event companies, RaeBird offers their expertise, from full to partial services, depending on their client’s needs. Accordingly, they offer several comprehensive fixed rate packages that specifically describe RaeBird’s scope of services that will be involved. All of their services start with a complimentary consultation.
