our approach

A Southerner from metro-Atlanta (the Peach) who transplanted to South Walton (the Pearl) after college, Avis has a classic style that focuses on high touch service and intimate details. Avis was married in 2010 to a military veteran who now serves as a sergeant at the sheriff’s office. Their children are their world – a daughter who was born in January 2015 and a son born in February 2017. Together, they have always answered wanderlust’s call around the world. Thankfully, her parents live on 30A and love spending time with her munchkins… It takes a village!

Like many of her brides, family values are a stronghold in Avis’ life. In fact, looking back on her childhood it was evident that her path would eventually bring her to event planning. Like many southern homes, she was exposed to genuine southern hospitality and social gatherings. Her parents never turned down the opportunity to host the best annual gatherings from intimate multi-course meals to laid-back barbeques around the pool. She was heavily influenced by her parents who always welcomed in family and friends with the obvious intention to make them feel at home. Ultimately, it’s exactly the way she wants her clients and their guests to feel at each of her events.

Michelle Cruz

Victoria is the youngest of 3 girls and is a true Texan, born and raised. This Houston native dreamed of living on the beach all her life and was set out to find a job sight unseen! Needless to say, she completely fell in love with everything 30A has to offer and is now a proud local with her miniature Goldendoodle, Goose.

She grew up vacationing at the beach and making memories at her family's Colorado home. Victoria graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor's of Arts and a certificate in Event Planning. Victoria developed a passion for weddings when she studied horticulture and flowers at school, but quickly learned that planning events was what really had her heart. Victoria knows how important your wedding day is and truly feels honored to play a part in it. There is never a problem too big to solve or a detail too small to get her attention. Her bubbly personality, genuine character, and southern charm are what makes her fast friends with brides and their families alike. She will ensure your day is everything you want it to be and more!
