Spreading her metropolitan style throughout the low country, Terrica has been creating exquisite weddings and events in the Golden Isles area for the past seventeen years. Specializing in modern Southern weddings, she believes in creating custom experiences inspired by her clients' love stories while infusing technology and efficiency.
A contributing board member of the North American Academy of Wedding and Event Planning, Terrica's weddings and expertise have been featured in The Knot, Reader's Digest, Martha Stewart Weddings, HLN tv, Style Me Pretty, PeopleTV, and a host of others. In addition to leading a rockstar team at her planning and design firm, she also owns The White Lounge—a contemporary wedding planning concierge service for couples and wedding professionals. A Speaker of the Year nominee for the National Association of Catering and Events ONE Award and a popular Educator for The Knot and Wedding Wire, she launched her new wedding industry education system, Hustle Sold Separately and VIP community, Hustle & Co. in 2020.
Terrica is an ardent educator of those in the wedding industry, also hosting the "She Doesn't Even Go Here" podcast. Equally passionate about uplifting fellow wedding pros, she spearheads the Unity Through Community diversity and inclusion initiative and is a beloved advisor for Wedding Pro's Fellowship for Change. As an avid lover of cake and champagne, you'll find her at home in the Golden Isles with her four "fabutots", and when not entertaining family and friends, she's frequently binging on RuPaul's Drag Race and Game of Thrones.
