our story

Hi there! My name is Vanessa and I am the president and founder of Bridal Affairs. As a Certified Wedding Planner, I have been planning weddings since 2012. But I was the little girl who had her wedding fully planned before I turned five! I love all things related to weddings, including wedding movies, books, magazines, and Pinterest boards.
Choosing wedding colors, flowers or designs all make my heart sing! My heart flutters and I get teary-eyed when brides walk down the aisle to join their husband in marriage.

Born and raised in Illinois, I moved to North Carolina in 2009, after graduating with a Sociology Degree from NIU. I have northern roots, but I am a southerner by heart. I enjoy sitting in rocking chairs on my porch and sipping lemonade. I am in love with decorating my house, crafting and scrap booking.
I also love to travel internationally and to collect handmade dolls from every country I visit. I am obsessed with anywhere in Europe, particularly Italy. A few countries I have visited are France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Jamaica, Canada, Mexico and Peru. My bucket list includes visiting all 50 states and all the continents. I recently traveled to the Amazon jungle, which was quite the experience!

I love to spend my free time with our son Vance, he is adorable and a blessing to us! Aside from weddings, you may see him on our Instagram Stories (bridalaffairsnc) quite a bit as I am an obsessed mom and I love to share beautiful moments as he grows.

I'm very excited to help you plan your wedding and make it a memorable one!

With Love,

Vanessa Johnson
your story

You have probably been engaged for a short time by now, but have a million things running through your head. Where do I start? What do I need to do? What colors look good together? Which vendors offer a quality service? How do I stay within my budget?
Let our team of professional wedding planners help guide you and make the process easy and stress-free. Planning your wedding should be a fun experience and focused on the meaning of your wedding. Your engagement is a small period of your life, you should be enjoying every minute of it.

With all those things in mind, that’s why we take great joy in getting to know you as a couple on a deeper and more personal level. We take time to get to know your interests, hobbies, careers, likes and dislikes, so that we can help create your magical wedding. We love to hear about how you met, your engagement story, places you have visited together, and anything that is special to you both. We love to see your pinterest boards!
Your wedding is a reflection of who you two are as a couple.  We want to share in your wedding joys together, or shed happy tears together!
You are more to us than just a bride and groom, you are part of our Bridal Affairs family. And just like family, we take good care of you and deliver you the best with long-lasting memories.
