-Owner, Visionary, Innovator

I’ve had a passion for planning and designing as far as I can remember. As a young child, I dreamed of weddings. Not just saying I do, but all of the intricate details that makes the day so special. It is also my passion to share my knowledge of bridesmaids and how to make Bridesmaids perfect. After planning many different weddings, the one common denominator has always been “Bridesmaids” and the many ups and downs they will encounter throughout the planning process. Crowned as the bridesmaids guru,  my personality and experience in dealing with groups of women with various personality types, from the most difficult to the easy going is at the heart of what I do. It is my pleasure to bring both passions together, the love for people and all things gorgeous to create an Emerald event.

What Our Clients are Saying
Latika was a great asset to my sister’s wedding. Weddings can be so high pressured and things sometimes can get crazy. However, Latika saved the day by offering quick beautiful solutions. She focused her attention on the details that we overlooked. She tied up the all the forgotten small but important details. It was a pleasure working with her and we were extremely grateful for her services that she provided the day of the wedding. Thanks to Latika and The Emerald Group for taking the stress off of my sister’s wedding. I’m pleased that we hired her.

Best Party Ever-Let me start by saying that Latika is Amazing! She listened to what I wanted and shared her great ideas. From start to finish she was professional and very helpful. The décor was beautiful and reflected my vision perfectly. Most of all she was committed to making sure my husbands 50th birthday party was spectacular and memorable. the quests are still talking about it!!! Even though we had a last minute change in the venue the party was perfect. I will most definitely be using Latika in the future when I renew my wedding vows!
V. Cannon
My vision of my wedding was that it would be an elegant affair, but within a moderate budget. After consulting with Latika in January of my ideas for a wedding in July of the same year, she immediately began her work and has been very diligent from the moment we met. She has done a phenomenal job effectively keeping every aspect of the wedding planning within my budget. Her ideas are impressive and helpful, especially when I was not able to envision the end result. She is very active in every step of the planning process and you can rest assured that Latika will guide you through all of the to-do items on the checklist of the bride -to- be. I would highly recommend her as a wedding planner.

As a stationery designer in the wedding field, I find it an absolutely joy to work with knowledgeable business professionals who are also in the wedding industry. I’ve worked with Latika on several projects and each time has been rewarding. She’s knowledgeable in her craft as a wedding designer. Her excitement exudes in area of wedding planning. She goes above and beyond to create a worthwhile experience for not only the bride and groom but for the guest who attend the weddings. Her attention to detail is impeccable. I’m excited about The Emerald Groups future and I look forward to being amazed at the events Latika and her team will create.
N. Fowlkes
When I first met Latika I was amazed by her attention to detail and how “wedding savvy” she was. As a clueless bride so to speak, Latika was a life saver. I most definitely made the right choice by choosing her as a planner. I loved they way she was always available for my questions and how responsive she was. She was very professional and had great ideas. My wedding day was perfect and I would recommend her to any bride.
C. Wilkens
Originally, I was planning my wedding by myself. My husband saw how overwhelmed I became and recommended Latika. Choosing her to become my wedding coordinator was the best decision I made. I have a type “A” personality and Latika and I worked together just fine. I felt very confident in her work. She was always on point with everything. She truly made our wedding the perfect day! Not to mention she has a very calm demeanor and just fun to be around.
