Hi there! 
I am Tatum, owner of MMD and creator of the Make My Day Wedding Expo. When I started this business, there was no way of knowing how much I would absolutely love creating events that are unforgettable for my clients. 
I have a Bachelors degree in Journalism from the University of Arkansas, woo pig, and a hidden love for interior design. Once moving from Oklahoma to Florida I became a certified wedding planner and my story of entrepreneurship is still being written. 
I am married to a CPA. His name is Luke and he is a golf-loving, wannabe comedian who is the biggest supporter and constant encouragement. We recently welcomed our daughter, Beckett into the world and we have a precious but incredibly wild border collie puppy named, TJ. 
A large chunk of our hearts live in Oklahoma - our families, who we are incredibly close with and we are so thankful for their support. I couldn't do what I do without them.

My favorite cocktail is really anything with bourbon/whiskey. But, I won't say no to good tequila - hence the reason I opened Clink + Sip Mobile Bar

I started with Tatum and Make My Day Planning in 2018 and have been so excited and grateful to work with amazing couples all over Northeast Florida and Georgia (so far)! I truly enjoy making brides and grooms feel amazing and relaxed on their special day, and working with MMD has been a dream come true.
I have a Bachelors Degree from Jacksonville University in International Business and Masters from University of London in International Development and Human Rights. I've lived in Jacksonville for the past 18 years, with a few breaks here and there, and love talking up our city and surrounding areas!
also own a mobile bar, Clink + Sip. It is a modern black and white bar that can be pulled to any event! My love for good cocktails inspired me to start this biz. 
I can't wait to meet you and help make your dream day become a reality!
