Hi Sam! Tell us a little about yourself & your companies.

Debra Benamati and I are the owners of rsvp wedding coordination, B & R Events, and Southern Gala.

How did you get into wedding planning?

I'm bossy. Deb is hyper-organized and very detail-oriented. She has a degree in design and worked at a home decor and lighting design store. I have a degree in communications and graduated from college and started working with a builder designing interiors with clients. I then planned my own wedding and decided that with our background we could help couples.

Any quick tips or advice you'd give to couples planning their wedding?

Establish your budget and expectations early on. Remember this is a fun and joyous time in your life! Let the professionals do their job.

The best part of my job is the sound of relief in a client's voice after a meeting & the hug at the end of a wedding.

Bonus Question: How much do you love pink?

It is my absolute favorite color! And polka dots are my favorite pattern. That's why we feature pink and a dot in the logos for B & R Events and rsvp wedding coordination.

The event logos for Southern Gala almost always have something that resembles a dot- like the clock for our New Year's Eve party or sunburst for the White Hot Party. 

Pink and polka dots have never gone out of style. They are classic. 


Thanks for talking with us, Sam! It was great. Keep rocking the pink, lady.
