Meet 'The Weducator' Tia R. Ervin

Yes, we have our own IN-HOUSE wedding planning expert.  Not that I'm yet ready for her to unleash her power upon my love life, but it has a certain 'ring' to if I say so myself! (smile).
Tia R. Ervin - The Weducator

Tia R. Ervin is CEO of Milestone Occasions, LLC, a wedding planning, design, and production consultancy specializing in life’s social celebrations.  As a married mother of 2 young girls, she often refers to herself as 'Mommy Mogul', because she has mastered the art of balancing family and business.  As she builds her foundation and makes her mark as a leading wedding expert, she has adopted the name 'The Weducator' to perhaps best demonstrate that she is more than a CEO, more than a wedding planner, but she is someone that others can look to for guidance in this maze of an ever changing industry.  From wedding fashion, to wedding decor and entertainment, Tia R. Ervin as 'The Weducator' is the go to resource for brides, grooms, parents of the bride/groom, wedding party, wedding pros, and aspiring wedding planners. 

Tia recently sat down with Alicia Edwards, a Fashion Designer turned Style Writer to discuss all things weddings in anticipation of The Great Royal Marriage set to take place tomorrow, April 29, 2011.  
Tia's reaction to SEEING the Royal Couple - cute!

With close to 15 years of experience creating beautiful, unique and fantasy weddings and events, Tia has been afforded opportunities to share her knowledge with others and was most recently named as the Atlanta Chapter of the Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants.   She has facilitated the power seminar "You're Engaged, Now What" presented by Plan it Productions at their Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta bridal showcase.  She has also appeared as a guest expert on Lifetime Televisions 'Get Married' hosted by Colin Cowie three times and was a speaker at the 2009 Wedding MBA Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.  As the creator of the Wedding Planning Professional Workshop Series, she goes above and beyond to ensure other wedding professionals are at the top of their game.  In 2010, she was named Best of Wedding Planners in Georgia for The Knot Magazine and in 2011, she added the "Mom and Me Wedding Planning Luncheon" to her educational agenda to ensure every bride (and the woman who loves her best) has valuable information she can use to plan a wedding. Her personality is best described as part Oprah for her sensibility and generosity, with a dash of Wendy Williams and Monique for her down home quick wit.
