Courtney Guthrie - Owner, Planner and Designer
Welcome to Peachy Keen Weddings! My name is Courtney Guthrie, I have been doing weddings for over 10 years and I am the owner and founder of Peachy Keen Weddings. Everything I know about planning events, I learned from my mother, Lisa West. She was the owner and founder of Simple Gatherings at Four Oaks Manor. I started Simple Gatherings at Four Oaks Manor with my mother, sister and brother. I worked at Four Oaks for 6 years and my last year at Simple Gatherings I started Peachy Keen Weddings as a way to branch out on my own and to have the ability to plan and design weddings all over Georgia. Flash forward 6 years later and I couldn't be happier with all that I have achieved and continued to achieve. I am a hands on wedding and event planner and I can customize creative options to accommodate your budget and make your day truly shine with a unique flair. My passion for weddings and events will ensure that you have the perfect day to start a lifetime of memories.
Planning weddings and events in Georgia is a way of life for me. I love what I do and it is always a new experience every time. I specialize in turning clients dreams into reality. My goal is to provide my clients with fun, stress free, and customized wedding and event planning. I love creating new visions with clients and brides, watching ideas grow and eventually come to life. I love a challenge and I am ready to roll up my sleeves and bring any idea to life. Every couple is different and I make sure your wedding or event reflects your personal style. I am looking forward to working with you and making memorable moments for you and your guests at your event!
Victoria Baggett - Lead Wedding Planner/Coordinator & Office Manager
Hello! I'm Tori, an Atlanta-based wedding coordinator with over ten years of experience in large scale events. My background is in the hospitality and theatre industries. You name it, I’ve probably done it: bar management, Broadway show production, audio-visual work, live entertainment, conventions, and the list goes on. I’m a Jill of all trades! I’ve run one of the largest event spaces at Dragoncon for the past seven years and been heavily involved with Netherworld, America’s number one haunted house, for six and counting. I love the energy and critical thinking skills that events require and I love a challenge, so of course weddings were my ideal opportunity to pull all of my skills together.
I am known for my creative event ideas and I love to tie together different aspects to create a thoughtful theme. I'm here to juggle all the little details so you don’t need to, and to execute a flawless event on-time, every time. I would love to help you achieve your vision for your special day and I cannot wait to work with you!

Maryelle St. Clare - Assistant Wedding Coordinator & Setup Leader
Hello! I'm Maryelle, and I am in my third year of working for Peachy Keen Weddings! I come to Peachy Keen from the film & TV world, where I work primarily in the Art Department as a production assistant, set dresser, set decorator, and art director. Before I worked in the film industry, I had a career in business operations and prior to that worked for more than 10 years in the restaurant & catering industry as a bartender, server, and restaurant manager. I also run my own business (an artist space, prop rental company, and filming studio) here in Atlanta.
I find that decorating for weddings is very similar to production design and set decorating for a film and in fact refer to my part in it as "doing set dressing for weddings." I have greatly enjoyed working for Peachy Keen and am always amazed that no two weddings have ever looked exactly the same. Being part of someone's happiest day and knowing that they can relax and put their trust in Peachy Keen to handle everything they need so they can enjoy their families and friends without worrying about a thing is very satisfying to me. I enjoy helping the bride feel like she can focus solely on her wedding! It is what I would want for myself and so it's what I want to do for our clients. Here's looking forward to the next three years!
