If you are planning your wedding, you are probably in one of the most exciting, yet stressful times of your life. Today’s weddings are major events that require planning, organization, and attention to detail. The planning process should be fun and exciting, but many brides become over-whelmed because they either don’t have the time to devote or they simply need someone to help them navigate the endless choices and decisions. This is where Georgia Grace Weddings steps in. We have been referred to as a “Bride’s Best Friend”, but we are also there to help everyone in your family. Many times one person is taking on too many responsibilities, and ultimately that person is not going to relax and enjoy your wedding. More than anything, the Bride and Groom need to be able to let go and take in every second of their wedding day. We will be there to ensure the guest book is displayed, your programs are ready, and the cake is in place. Your job will be to focus on the love, joy, and party you have planned! A wedding coordinator is not a luxury; it truly is an essential part of a stress-free, organized wedding!

Meet Mary Ellen Baker

From sweet tea to monograms, I love all things southern! And if you ask me, there is nothing better than a beautiful southern wedding, full of love, unique/personal touches, dancing and laughter. Even after more than a decade of planning weddings, I still can't get enough (just ask my husband who is subjected to countless episodes of Say Yes to the Dress, Pinterest finds, and lots of excitement over new Instagram inspirations)! Speaking of my family, they are the reason I smile through the hard times, the reason I believe in myself, and the reason I followed my dream of starting my own business and created Georgia Grace Weddings. My husband, Jason, and I have been blessed with two amazing children, Ella Reese and Colin. We also have Finley, our spoiled third child (or Goldendoodle). As cheesy as this sounds, once you are my bride you also join my family. You are trusting me to make sure every detail of your wedding day is executed perfectly. I take this task very seriously and pledge to give every client 110% to make sure they aren't just happy, but blissfully, overwhelmingly, thrilled beyond belief. Weddings are my passion, and I'd consider it an honor to be chosen to help plan the happiest day of your life.

Meet Heather hanley

My name is Heather Hanley and I was born and raised right outside of Athens (Go Dawgs!). Graciousness, family, and faith were and still are keys to my upbringing. These characteristics are a huge motivation as to why I am so enthusiastic about my job as a wedding coordinator. I love sharing in your excitement of your future family, the planning of every detail, and watching your wedding blossom into a spectacular, breath-taking day shared by your family and friends. I like to think my job is a way for you to enjoy every moment of your day by being in every moment. I want you to love every part of the process, without the stress and worry that can come with planning a wedding. I consider it a privilege and honor to be asked to make sure every detail of your planning comes together to create the vision you want. I cannot wait to help your day truly be the happiest day of your life!

Meet Jane Tippins

Hello! I am Jane Tippins and I am thrilled to be a part of the Georgia Grace Weddings family. I am a true Southern Belle, born and bred on a farm in South Georgia, firmly rooted in faith and family. I believe that graciousness and manners matter. I am a romantic at heart, so I love that weddings are unique ceremonies blending two families and traditions. As a little girl, I "loved" weddings - going to them, watching them on TV or in movies; everything about weddings was magical! Being a flower girl was a thrill I will never forget. The fact that now I have the opportunity to help couples bring their wedding day dreams to life is an honor I do not take lightly. I will consider it a privilege to ensure that you enjoy - free from stress and worry - every moment of your magical day.


It’s all about love for this small-town girl! I grew up right outside of Athens and married my college sweetheart, Brian. I am a big believer in building a life on the cornerstones of faith and family and I am blessed to be the mom of an adventure-loving son, Matthew, and mini-Goldendoodle, Astro.


I love getting to know each couple as I help you plan a day that is reflective of you from start to finish. My goal for your perfect wedding day is that it is an incredible, stress- and worry-free celebration; one that is filled with love and laughter, that hopefully spills over into your future together!


I don't take being a part of your wedding day for granted. Knowing that you will have shared moments and memories with your family and friends is what fills my heart. Making others happy is truly what brings me joy!
