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 have two beautiful daughters, Beckett and Blair 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.
I have been a teacher for several years. I teach middle school math and when the pandemic hit in 2020 I began virtual teaching
I have been to 20+ countries and can't wait to go to more. My favorites have been Mexico City and Cape Town
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!
Elbow Cay is my favorite place. I’ve been visiting since I was 12 and can’t wait to start taking our daughter.
I love all holidays but 4th of July and Thanksgiving are my favorite
I started woodworking in 2020 and love building all the things!
House projects, Friends, the beach and good wine
I began my career in the events industry in 2011 after graduating from Florida State University (go Noles!) with a bachelor’s degree in Fashion Merchandising & Product Development. Over the last decade I have gained experience serving as a catering manager, venue manager and event planner. I have worked on a range of events from product launches to fundraisers to weddings and I look forward to the next step in my career at Make My Day.
My husband Rob and I met through mutual friends while at FSU and married in 2015 after he completed his PhD in Economics. I am originally from Atlantic Beach and we are glad to be back at the beach after living in Tallahassee and Pensacola. We just welcomed (or “are about to welcome” depending on when you add this to the website) our first daughter and have two adorable and energetic rescue dogs, Max and Oliver.
I have a passion for events and look forward to helping you plan your big day!
