Lead Planner | Owner

Hey, I'm Rayven! Welcome to my small corner of the web! I am excited to share a little bit about myself and what drives my business.

With over 7 years of full-time event planning experience and over 100 events in my portfolio, I know that creating an amazing and stress-free planning journey for you is just as important as managing the details of your big day. Planning a wedding shouldn't be a checklist- it’s a journey to the next stage of your lives, and I am here to make that journey another beautiful chapter in your book!


I am passionate about providing exemplary advice and service to my clients. A Gator through and through, I have built upon my bachelors in Event Management from the University of Florida by obtaining two international certifications in event planning. During breaks, you can find me watching webinars on event planning (some say I'm obsessed...), but I continually work to stay up to date on the latest strategies in the industry so that your day is perfect!


Growing up among a family of professional creatives has given me an appreciation for lines, colors, decor, and how to incorporate all of this to create stunning designs that make drop-dead-gorgeous photos. Having the opportunity to create beautiful and functional wedding designs that showcase the couple’s love and personality is an energizing force for me.

Lead Coordinator

Hi there, I'm Gianna! We're happy that you've stumbled upon White Magnolia Events, and we hope you move on from this page with a better sense of who we are, and the confidence that we'll be the perfect fit to plan your perfect day!

I've been in the events industry for five years and have worked with Rayven for 3 of those years. When she came to me and said "Do you want to be a part of White Magnolia?", how could I say no?! Our in common passion has always been all things beautiful and all things organized. We know that our passion will lead to a wonderful collaboration with YOU to help bring your dream wedding to life!


Like Rayven, I also received my bachelor's degree in Event Management from the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and have since become a Certified Meeting Professional. (We're basically the same person...can you tell?) Our passion for and experience in the events industry can give you the peace of mind that we know how to handle any situation.


For me, its all about how the little details contribute to your overall vision. I'm here to take care of all the things that you might have not even thought about! It's your day, it should be perfect, and I'm here to make that happen! I have always been one to have an outlined plan (don't get me started about my vacation itineraries...!), so I'm looking forward to creating the perfect plan and timeline so that your day runs flawlessly from start to finish

Proceed to the right for the fun stuff!

Rayven treated us like family and our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without her!"
