Grace & Lace RVA Events is a mother-daughter owned event planning company specializing in custom weddings and social gatherings. Darla White, the event planner has been creating amazing events for 20+ years in Richmond, Virginia in her spare time while working a full-time job and taking care of her family. In 2017, she was diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma. She fought her hardest battle yet with the utmost grace with the help of God, family, friends, and doctors. Through her journey she realized she wanted to be an event planner and make it more than a side job. Her daughter, Autumn Innes and Administrative Assistant for Grace & Lace RVA Events wanted to make her mom’s dream come true just as she had been making people’s visions of their special events come true for so many years, so Grace & Lace RVA Events was created.

Ms. White has planned or participated in the planning of countless events including weddings, engagement parties, bridal and baby showers and birthday parties.
Autumn Innes, daughter to Darla White has always had a passion for planning and organizing. Being a former reading specialist and now a stay at home mom to 3 under the age of 3 she continues to work hard at keeping her family running efficiently with her type A personality.

Stephanie Pritham, Pritham Floral Design
Floral design for everyday or special occasions. Pritham Floral Design was formed in 1999 when I put together flowers for a co-worker’s backyard wedding. What began as a small hobby, has become a home business that brings me a lot of joy. We primarily design for weddings and love working with brides to help bring their floral ideas to fruition. There are so many beautiful textures, colors and variety in plants and flowers that each event truly can be uniquely designed for each individual client.
Deirdre Gill, Pencraft + Post
Pencraft + Post is a hand-lettering and calligraphy studio here for all of your day-of-details. Send us your visions for custom signage or browse our rental inventory, and we'll take care of those big seating charts and table numbers, too. P+P knows what a difference those special, thoughtful touches can make, and we love using the elements of (subtle) surprise and harmony to create something unique for you and your day.

Fat Rabbit Cakes
Professional baker specializing in creative cakes (and the occasional pie & cookie). Located in Richmond, VA.
Wild fan of spring days, summer nights, dark chocolate, earth tones, sweatpants, a good sprint, and Campari. I believe that cake should taste just as beautiful as it looks; that any occasion is cake-worthy and ought to be treated as such; and that any moment is worth celebration. I encourage custom orders for any gathering, large or small.
Fox and Quill Paper
When I first started Fox and Quill Paper in 2017, I truly couldn’t imagine doing anything else. From meeting brides to delivering a box full of pretty invitations, I enjoy every part of the process! Having grown up in the country, I adore and love its roots and traditions. Our work reflects those traditions, simplicity, and a cinch of folky artwork here and there! I am so fortunate to be able to work with our clients to design not only the wedding paper for their day, but pieces they will carry for a lifetime.
