About Taylor

va wedding designer and planner
"I would highly recommend Alyson Taylor Events to anyone looking for a planner with impeccable taste that will also put you at ease. ~Kate, mother-of-the-bride"
Thoughtful and unique, Taylor has built a respected reputation in the Southeast for the charm, class, and FUN she brings to her events. Her network of talented professionals and discerning eye for a modern twist on old-school tradition is what makes each Alyson Taylor event an incredible experience.
Raised in a charming North Carolina town in the foothills of the mountains, Taylor’s early creative inspirations came from both time spent learning the ins-and-outs of ‘proper interior design’ in her grandmother’s sewing shop, and planning any and every event she could. Falling in love with her college best friend led her away from her pursuit of medicine at the time and into the couture bridal fashion industry. It was during that time that all of her interests aligned into the perfect fit for Taylor- event planning and design.

A dream turned a reality during this journey as she worked under some of the nations top planners and couture fashion designers. It was there she found her passion for working one-on-one with clients. With five years of event experience on over a hundred weddings, Taylor considers it an honor and privilege to get to know her clients and use her talents to infuse their story into the details of their day. From soup to nuts, Taylor and her team work closely with each Client to deliver an unparalleled experience which is possible due to her extensive and varied background in the industry, strong vendor network, and an ‘out-of-the-box’ creative streak.

Firmly grounded in her faith, Taylor seeks to celebrate not just your wedding day, but the healthy, lasting marriage her clients pursue. Richmond, Virginia is home for Taylor and her team. On a day off, you’ll find Taylor and her husband taking on a house project, perfecting their favorite cocktails, exploring Virginia wine country, working on a new house project, or hiking around the James River! Taylor has two young boys, so every day is an adventure!
