Nothing warms, welcomes, or expresses gratitude quite like a thoughtful gift. 

The Detail Darling was born out of a wedding weekend necessity to host your out-of-town guests well and make them feel wanted and welcomed from the moment they check into their hotels. Though my little business has grown and expanded in different ways, highly custom, personalized details are still at the heart of everything we do.

Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, the art of Southern hospitality was instilled in me from a young age. For me, hosting a seamless dinner party or picking out the perfect birthday gift for a friend is what dreams are made of. And don't even get me started on wrapping Christmas presents. What joy!

After graduating from college, I moved away from the only state I had ever known to have an adventure in the great state of Virginia. Upon moving to Charlottesville, I quickly found myself right at home in the warm welcoming arms of the wedding community.

It is such a privilege to help brides & grooms celebrate their loved ones and graciously set the tone for their wedding weekend. Together we can craft the best beginning to the BEST day of your life! Not planning a wedding, but still looking to gift the perfect gift? No sweat! Together we can build the perfect package for the person or people in your life who have earned a bit of your gratitude.

When I'm not busy crafting, building, stuffing, tying, gifting or delivering, you can find me spending time with my wonderful husband, Halston, and our furry little family - Captain Hook (pup), Peter (bunny) & Tink (kitten). I find so much joy in making our house a home, and Halston is known for filling it with dear friends and cooking (or grilling!) up some delicious food. You can find us at the end of most days sitting in our front porch swing enjoying a glass of wine.
