Courtney Guthrie - Owner, Planner and Designer
Welcome to Peachy Keen Weddings! I'm 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 a wedding venue in Buford GA called Simple Gatherings at Four Oaks Manor. I started Simple Gatherings at Four Oaks Manor with my mother, sister and brother, and worked with my family at Four Oaks for 6 years. 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 outside of Four Oaks. Flash forward 8 years later and I couldn't be happier with all that I have achieved and continued to achieve. I'm 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, watching ideas grow and eventually come to life. I love a challenge and I'm 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'm looking forward to working with you and making memorable moments for you and your guests at your event!
Raquel Kruse - Lead Wedding Planner/Coordinator
My name is Raquel Kruse. I have worked in the wedding and catering industry for 10 plus years. I’m a creative person with a passion for interior styling, set decoration, and pretty party planning.
Before that, I worked in Early Childhood Education, mentoring, engaging young minds, and working with parents to ensure success in laying a foundation for preschool. It was in that environment that I learned to be attentive to needs, committed to families and patient in all situations.
What I love about weddings is being a witness to happy families coming together. Truly the joy is all mine.
Maryelle St. Clare - Assistant Wedding Coordinator & Setup Leader
Hello! I'm Maryelle, and I am in my fourth 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!
