Whether you’re dreaming of saying I do with refined Southern simplicity, glamour and grandeur, or old-world opulence—one thing holds true: you want yours to be a gathering full of life, love, and lasting memories. You’re envisioning a celebration steeped in warmth, revelry, and sophistication. One that expresses your story honestly, organically, and in a way that’s impossible to forget. One that doesn’t just delight your guests—but that leaves them enveloped in absolute awe.
If you’re seeking a wedding that turns heads, captures imaginations, and transforms fleeting moments into familial memories you’ll revel in forever—welcome, friend. We can’t wait to help you celebrate your love story in an extraordinary way.
Hi, there—we’re Sam and Alex, the celebration-obsessed designers and hug-loving “people-people” behind Simply Chic. We believe your love story deserves a thoughtfully-crafted celebration that stands out in a way that speaks to your soul—and that you deserve the peace-of-mind that comes from knowing every last detail is being handled with care by people you love working with.
With a trusted network of the area’s most acclaimed vendors, a commitment to taking on only a small number of weddings each year, and a high-touch, whole-hearted approach that stems from our love for, well, love—there’s nothing we adore more than our role as your event advocates (read: wedding besties).
We’re here to create a cohesive vision out of all of that overwhelming online inspiration, build the best creative team to bring it to life, and manage the minutiae so you can relax and remain present. When you work with the Simply Chic team you’re not just hiring a wedding planner—you’re investing in everything you need to ensure an effortless path to an impeccable affair.
With a focus on high-impact design and a speciality in outdoor and tented affairs, whatever aesthetic is calling to you—we’re here to bring it to fruition in a way you and your guests will never quite get over (cue a lifetime of “Oh! And remember the…” wedding stories).
“To say Samantha knocked it out of the park would be an understatement! She made every part of the planning process as fun and stress-free as possible. Her attention to detail and execution of our vision was second to none. We had a jumbled mess of ideas for the vision of our wedding and she turned them into an aesthetic masterpiece that our guests still talk about. Through all of the mini-freakouts and stressful situations she was always calm, cool and collected, and provided the perfect support to guide us through the situation. Not only did we fall in love with her, but every vendor we came in contact with loves her too. We HIGHLY recommend Samantha and the Simply Chic Events team for your special day! It will be the decision you ever made (second to saying yes)!”

“Not only do you get one incredible wedding planner and designer...you get two. Simply Chic is one of my favorite planning teams to work with. Words to describe their work: original, timeless, beauty, organic, and simply wonderful people with a soul of gold. Love them both to pieces for more reasons than I can list out here”
-Gretchen Clements, Elan Artists
“The ladies of Simply Chic are among my absolute favorites in the industry! As a fellow vendor, I can say that their creativity and vision never fail to create an event that is an absolute pleasure to be a part of. Just as importantly—or perhaps even more so—they always maintain their calm, comforting and down-to-earth demeanors with clients and vendors alike throughout the planning process right down to the execution of the event itself.”
“Samantha is the dream. My husband and I worked with her for 2 years and she was with us each step of the way the entire time. She has this way of feeling like your best friend AND being insanely organized, helpful, and on top of it all. Her professionalism is top-notch. Our wedding day was stunning and Samantha made it easy to get there, with every detail in place and with calm and grace. I asked SO many questions and wanted so many examples of everything. Samantha helped me make decisions, gave me a loving kick in the behind when I asked for it/needed it, and was a soundboard when I wasn't sure which direction to go in. Our experience would not have been the same without her!”
“My husband and I were SO blessed to have Samantha Crew from Simply Chic as our wedding planner, and—let me tell you—she is without a doubt an ANGEL from above! I don't think we will ever be able to find the words to express how lucky we feel to have worked with her. During our 14+ months working together, Samantha consistently went above and beyond the "call of duty”. And on our wedding day, she made us feel so comfortable and carefree—like all we had to do was enjoy our special day. By the end of the night, our wedding party was saying, ‘Samantha is the G.O.A.T.’ (aka, the greatest of all time)! Samantha Crew is truly an impeccable wedding planner and an incredible person whom we are now lucky enough to call our dear friend.”
“There is nothing better than having peace of mind that you are working with someone who you trust to handle all of the little (and of course, big) details of your special day! I anticipated being stressed and a bit on edge the day of my wedding, but thanks to Samantha, I don’t remember a single minute of feeling that way. I remember my mom saying how impressed she was that every time she went to ask or tell Samantha something, she already had it figured out and taken care of, like she was reading her mind. We can’t thank Samantha enough for making our day so perfect. I know that it’s because of her that we were able to relax.”
“Samantha was such a joy to work with for my wedding. She had every detail planned out perfectly so that all I had to do on the wedding day was have fun and relax. I am not from DC, so I relied on Samantha for vendor recommendations. She suggested fabulous vendors to work with and then organized them all to work together seamlessly. I highly recommend Samantha and Simply Chic!”
“Sam and her team were absolutely extraordinary! She went above and beyond every chance she had! She is truly a miracle worker and handled any situation with such grace and patience. She made me and more importantly, my family, comfortable and calm at every step. She made our day the best day ever. I highly recommend Sam and her crew!”
We can’t wait to get to know you, listen to your desires, and nurture your vision as we pave an incredibly enjoyable path to the wedding of your dreams.
