KHLOE JACKSON - FOUNDER
Khloe has been a Chattanoogan for the last ten years! She's always known she would one day own her own business, but her journey into the wedding industry was one that found her! After getting a Business degree from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, she helped manage a local event venue in town for several years called Stratton Hall. The venue held various types of events, but nothing compared to the equally challenging and rewarding aspects of a wedding day!
So in 2017, Wildflower Wedding Planning was born!Her goal for starting the
company was to help enrich the lives of couples planning a wedding by continuing to improve the process by making it as easy as possible to curate a day they would fondly remember for the rest of their lives! Now, she is passionate about training other wedding planners that are eager to excel in this industry! Khloe loves helping Wildflower clients plan one of the biggest celebrations of their lives! She is a huge idea person, and has lots of big plans to expand the services Wildflower Wedding Planning provides! Her newest adventures include expanding services to Nashville & Atlanta and developing elopement packages for 2021!
When she's not obsessing over weddings, her weekends consist of seeking epic landscapes, going to hot yoga, catching a live music show, trying new restaurants with friends, and chipping away at her travel bucket list!
Bailey F has been with Wildflower since 2019! She is continuing her education at UTC, studying Business Entrepreneurship. Growing up, Bailey has always been the planner, from her high school prom to her own wedding!
Her favorite parts of wedding planning is the organization of all the moving parts and the intimate moments she gets to experience with her clients. Bailey loves spending her weekends watching her brides get their dream wedding! Everyone loves working with Bailey F because she is always positive, passionate, and patient. In her downtime, you might spot her sipping a Havana latte at Frothy Monkey, walking her two puppies with her husband or hanging out with friends!
Emilei has always enjoyed throwing a party, no matter what the size, occasion, or location and even the smallest of dinner parties become an exciting opportunity for her to put her “event planning skills” to the test, and no detail is left unthought of. Her greatest desire and drive while planning events is to create an exciting and memorable atmosphere for the guests and to have people show up, experience new things, feel comfortable and remember that very occasion for the rest of their lives! She has been planning events for corporations, schools, friends, and families for the past decade but really began to get into weddings in the fall of 2014. Since then, she has planned and executed a wide variety of weddings and events all over the southeast.
In 2013, she graduated from Lee University with a degree in Public Relations. A few months after graduation, she married her husband, Andrew. They have two “fur-babies” and enjoy spending time together with their small family, watching Netflix or Hulu, traveling the world, and exploring new places. Since the beginning of time, she has loved music and is very passionate about singing and performing. Over the past 5 years, Emilei has been working a typical 9-5 job but decided it was time to jump into her dream job as an event planner so, through the help of a friend, found out about Wildflower and began as an Intern in January of 2020. Although the past year has been a difficult one for events, Emilei has found herself very fortunate to be a part of the Wildflower team and grow within the company. She cannot wait to make all her brides’ wedding dreams come true and create beautiful memories!
AMELIA ROSE SMITH -
MARKETING MANAGER | WEDDING PLANNER
Amelia is originally from Franklin, TN, but moved to Chattanooga to study Marketing at UTC. She previously attended The University of Memphis to fulfill her dream of dancing at the collegiate level. Amelia started at Wildflower as an intern, assisting with weddings, and is now our Social Media Coordinator. She enjoys getting to use her visionary skills to create content for a career path she has dreamed of being in!
She discovered her passion for event planning when she served as internal social planner for her sorority – she found WWP while planning a date party! She loves the opportunity to collaborate with vendors to create an event that is memorable for all in attendance. After graduation this coming fall, Amelia is ready to call wedding planning her full time career!
In her downtime, she enjoys exploring Chattanooga with her besties, surfing Pinterest for all the latest trends, and traveling!
Erika’s passion for weddings started at Troy University in Alabama where she pursued her degree in Hospitality and Event Management. This career path highlighted her natural skills and personal qualities (a perfect marriage between work and play, if you will). Erika moved to Chattanooga with her husband in 2019, and she first joined Wildflower as an intern in 2020! What began as a casual side gig turned into a platform for long-term career growth! She loves being involved in the local event scene, connecting with new people, and soaking in new experiences!
She believes she is truly making an impact on her clients that will last a lifetime, which amplifies the true importance of being a wedding planner. Getting to witness the pure love and joy felt by the bride, groom and their families on wedding day is worth all the work that goes into making sure every detail is taken care of. Ultimately, the wedding is an event that will come and go, but the marriage is the true gift from God that is worth the real investment and celebration.
She loves the sentimental touches (Erika is a big softy!); unique details (Erika loves to work with brides who add personal touches and try new things!); connecting with other vendors (everyone working together seamlessly is just the best feeling!); and the vows (nothing is sweeter than that promise to love your person forever and ever!).
When Erika isn’t working, you can find her hanging out with her family or friends, cooking or baking up a storm in the kitchen, or watching Netflix. In fact, she often says her life revolves around three things: Faith, Family and Food! If those things are involved, count her in!
