Pocketful of Sunshine Event Design | Columbia, SC Wedding Planner | Meet Amber

Hey, belles & beaus! 

I'm Amber Jackson, one of the wedding planners at Pocketful of Sunshine Event Design. I'm a Southern girl born & raised in a small town in South Carolina. I've been happily married to my husband, Neal, for nine years and we have 3 gorgeous children. My flower obsession would definitely be tulips and my favorite color is purple. Hint, hint, honey. ;) 

After earning my Bachelor's degree in chemistry (FUN FACT: Jessica & I graduated from the same school on the same day!), I started working for a local pharmaceutical company.

When I'm not whipping up new concoctions in the lab, you'll probably find me doing one of two things: researching the latest wedding trends or watching my kids in all their extracurricular activities - sometimes simultaneously because that's how busy moms roll!! 

My husband calls me a hopeless romantic and laughs over my obsession with The Princess Bride, but I think it's the perfect fit - "as you wish!" is my wedding planning motto. I'm a sucker for watching the groom as he watches his bride walk towards him. The true love shining in his eyes gets me every single time, y'all. 

My wedding planning motto comes straight from The Princess Bride - as you wish! Westley knew what he was talking about. ;)

If you're planning a wedding (and I'm assuming you are since you're visiting our website!), my advice as a planner and former bride is simple.

Relax and take in all the moments of your big day. Enjoy your hard work & focus on celebrating the first day of the rest of your life. Leave all the worry and stress with your wedding planner, and soak up all the love that surrounds you! 

I can't wait to work with you as we plan your wedding!
