Hey, there! I'm Kaitie - lover of Jesus, Spotify, Waffle House, the Hogs, picture frames, and color-coated wedding timelines. I've always loved being the host of a good party so the fact that I stumbled into the wedding planning scene doesn't shock any of my family and friends. 

In 2015, my husband and I decided to move to Tennessee. And, while we would only live there for one year because I quickly realized I wasn't meant to move more than 30-minutes away from my family, it was because of our move that I found my love for the wedding industry. 

In Tennessee, I worked alongside a company that hosted wedding shows, published wedding magazines across the state, and was the go-to online resource for the area. Saying I was bit by the wedding bug is an understatement. 

To make a long story short, I registered for an LLC in 2017 and haven't looked back since.

I love a good rom-com and am a sucker for a good love story. (Side note: You can always count on me to cry in a movie.) But, out of all the love story's I get the privilege to be apart of, mine is, naturally, my favorite.

Ryan and I are high school sweethearts, married in 2014 right of college.

There's been a lot of life lived and lessons learned since 2014. Plus, we've welcomed two kiddos into The Gill Fam. They are our pride and joy. Lincoln, our oldest, is obsessed with dinosaurs, tractors, and his cowboy boots. Darcy is obsessed with her daddy's voice and thinks her brother is just oh-so funny.

Formerly Known As

I originally named my wedding planning company Sailboat Weddings after my grandpa who passed away in September of 2009.

There are three things you need to know about Papa:

1. He never ever met a stranger.
2. His goal was to always make things easier for his family.
3. He loved Jesus, his family, and - you guessed it - sailboats.

Even though my company has had a rebrand the daily reminder that I can make the world a better place one day at time by loving people like Christ, just like Papa did, lives on. He left a legacy and it inspires me daily.
