Breathe in, breathe out. We’ve got this.

Our mission is to tell your perfect day: a day that truly tells the story of you, your love, and your life. Every couple that works with Happy to Be is unique – no one falls in love the same way, proposes the same way, or gets married in the same way. It is our mission to tell a story of just that: how, what, why you (yes, you!) and your love story is so different.

Our team has the skills, experience, creativity, and tools necessary to build your dream wedding, whether it’s a carefree cocktail and hors d’oeuvres afternoon set on the shores of a lake house, or an elegant beautiful night of dinner and dancing in a jaw-dropping setting.

We help couples all over the country with wedding planning from start to finish, but we specialize in events located in:
Fredericksburg | Washington D.C. | Richmond | Charlottesville

Meet the Face of Happy to Be

From the office to the wedding day, we’re pretty certain we’ve got the coolest crew.
Meg Flores

Meg Flores

Owner and Lead Planner

Meg has been coordinating and planning everything she can get her hands on for as long as she can remember. She officially began in the wedding industry at an event venue and inn while she was at college. Meg is a certified wedding planner, and received her certification from the New York Institute of Art and Design

Meg currently lives in Fredericksburg with her husband/best friend/partner-in-crime, Jamey, and their 3 four-legged children, Beary, a plott hound/pomsky puppy turned office dog, Bernie, a spoiled beagle/lab mix who’s political platform is to cuddle, and Brooke, an opinionated shih tzu who is really just allowing you to love her.

When Meg isn’t helping her clients design and plan beautifully executed weddings, she is trying a new recipe she found on the internet, hosting wine and cheese nights, or road-tripping off on a new adventure.

Love Notes

We take pride in creating a personal, intimate relationship with our couples. Every couple is unique, and one of the best parts of wedding planning and  design is the journey of determining our couples  unique sense of style, and implementing that style into their wedding day.

“Meg went above and beyond helping us plan and execute our special day! I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in search of a planner. Happy to Be Events was worth every penny!”

Amanda | Amanda & Daniel

“My MOH and her family hired Happy To Be to help me with all the details of the wedding. Meg was AMAZING. She was extremely organized and was always multiple steps ahead of me. Every time I would think of something, she would have already taken care of it or had a plan for it. I had a weekly checklist that kept me busy and on track. She took all my stress away and even saved me from being caked in the face by my husband! This was seriously the best gift I could have received for my wedding. I would highly recommend her and her team to everyone. Professional, friendly, organized, resourceful, and knowledgeable.”

Megan | Megan & Kyle

Meg is absolutely amazing! She is so knowledgeable in this field of work! She listens to what your needs and wants are and figures out a way to make them happen in an affordable fashion! If it wasn’t for Happy to be, my fiancé and I wouldn’t be having the wedding of our dreams!
