A South Carolina native, Brandy’s passion for event design was cultivated from an early age and influenced by the south’s infectious charm. Inspired by the summers spent alongside her great grandmother, June, Classic Planning nurtures cherished memories of timeless style to the contemporary bride. From a very young age, Brandy was immersed into the captivating world of both weddings & business. She was surrounded by strong women that worked together in operating a successful family owned catering & events business, where they created beautiful menus, lasting memories while serving their community. June truly was an icon. She was admired for styling events with an elevated aesthetic and lots of love. Brandy observed both her great grandmother and grandmother as they cared for their families & homes while meticulously managing a successful business. June and Delta, as well as Brandy’s aunts were the driving force behind the development of her strong work ethic, love for hosting events, and her desire to build her own company.

Brandy, Hannah, and the team at Classic Planning & Design Company exceeded my expectations! Their expertise, professionalism, creativity and sweet personalities provided me the wedding I had always dreamed of and so much more. Brandy & Hannah fully supported us and made sure every vendor and detail was on board as well. I could not have asked for a more supportive wedding team that genuinely wanted the best for my husband and I. CPDC was a blessing during this season of life.

Truly I cannot say enough good things about Brandy and Hannah, they are both awesome women that I would 100% be best friends with after planning all of this with them and they made my day an ABSOLUTE DREAM. There is not one single decision we made that I regret or anything that I would have done differently, everything is exactly what I imagined and more. It was the perfect day and I enjoyed every single minute of it - nothing felt rushed or stressful thanks to them and I was able to be fully present with my husband, family, and friends.

I cannot stress how AMAZING Brandy and her team were to work with!! Brandy made the entire process easy, fun and stress free!! We had several meetings and numerous phone calls and texts to go over all of the details. The week of the wedding she called and texted every day to check in. Weekend of the wedding she handled EVERYTHING!! I could not be happier with the way everything turned out. The venue and decorations were stunning!! All of our friends and family said it was the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever been to!

I don't even know where to begin. Brandy is AMAZING. We worked with her and her team from outside of Philadelphia. We were a little nervous because planning a wedding long-distance felt a bit daunting at first. Plus, we had zero experience with how to approach such a big event. The second we met with Brandy, we were reassured. We put total faith in her and her vision and she wildly exceeded our expectations. We feel so lucky to have had the privilege of working with Classic Planning & Design Co.

We are so grateful for Brandy, Hannah and everyone at Classic Planning and Design. They put together a wedding that was beautiful beyond our expectations. We were in awe when we first saw our venue, everything was put together in a way that was so gorgeous, they really created that special wedding magic feeling for us. We also received so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful everything was. We cannot recommend Classic Planning highly enough!
