Alisha Millwood

 

Alisha began her journey in the event industry as the daughter of a florist and working in an event rental company through high school and college. Although she worked in education for ten years, those career opportunities continued to strengthen her skills in planning and organizing events. Her creativity and knowledge led her to start her own business in 2014.  With a focus on the overall design of the wedding while keeping the budget on track, clients love to work with Alisha and her team. 

She is a preferred vendor at many venues and works closely with some of the best vendors in the state on a regular basis.  

Alisha is also active in her community though non-profit organizations, her church, and local schools. Giving back to others is very important to her and she includes her family in those activities. Alisha is married to Greg, and mother to sons Josh and Grayson. 


 The Crew

I could not do this job alone and it takes a team of people to help me. They are each talent in various ways. Some work every weekend, some only a few times a year. They all love weddings and seeing the details come together...and forgive me for the long hours of setting up, organizing, directing guests, and cleaning up after guests!

Brittany  is a licensed Esthetician and gives an awesome facial at Spa 131 in West Columbia. She joins us on the weekends as a lead coordinator and is a logistics guru! Wedding Love: getting the ceremony chairs just right.  

Terri is our Mama Bear and spends her week days with little preschool sweethearts! She is the nurturing one that can calm anyone down and enjoys working with flowers. Wedding Love: tweaking each flower centerpiece to perfection!

Susan is our people person. She has never met a stranger and can always make people laugh. She is a preschool director and loves all the sweet flower girls and ring bearers. Wedding Love: popping the rose petals for the flower girl baskets.

Bailee, Lindsey, Michelle, and Sara  work whenever we need extra hands. They are all crafty and creative in their own right and jump right into the swing of things. 

John and Caleb are the muscles when we have lots of heavy lifting, table moving, or difficult set ups. We are always thankful to have sweet fellas around.

Praise

Alisha was absolutely amazing! She worked around my schedule to meet with me to discuss plans. She answered all of my questions and gave me great advice along the way. The flowers for my wedding were everything I had hoped for and more! Alisha also took care of my day of coordination and decorated my reception venue. We could not have done it without her! Do yourself a favor and contact Alisha NOW! I promise you won't regret it! :)

Alisha and her team at Amazing Moments were nothing short of amazing. They went above and beyond to help make our day the best it could be. Alisha did the flowers and planning for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding day. I couldn't have asked for any more!! If you're looking for an amazing, kind, and thoughtful team to help you with your special day then Amazing Moments is it!

Alisha is THE BEST wedding planner and florist!!! Seriously one of the best decisions we made for our wedding was hiring her! She is great at what she does and great to work with. Absolutely worth every penny!

There are no words for Alisha and her team! From day one Alisha was so friendly and professional. She was always accommodating to my schedule, being an out of town bride, that speaks volumes! Her professionalism and knowledge base made our fairytale wedding come true! I would recommend the amazing moments team to anyone without hesitation! Simply amazing!!!!!

We appreciate everything! -love Mr.&Mrs.Hills 8.13.2016

 

Alisha and her staff of Terri, Susan and Brittany are just the best.

They are extremely professional and everything was truly wonderful. A guest dropped their glass and my dad joked that Alisha swooped in and caught it mid air and the crisis was averted. The entire team was this way about everything...totally on top of the event and with everything under control! She also has a strong team of vendors that came through like champions. I loved the stationery company and the catering company especially. They totally understood our vision. And on top of everything, she created beautiful and cleverly designed floral elements. Our venue looked breathtaking and was everything my daughter imagined "come to life".

But their greatest trait is keeping everyone calm and moving forward. Thanks for that especially. My guests and extended family complimented Amazing Moments and how special they made our wedding.
