Felicia + Team
The team you can trust to orchestrate every
moment + special detail of your celebration.
(And whom you’d also love to meet for happy hour.)
We—the FBD Team—have been planning weddings together for over a decade. We’re happy to report our client-vendor arrangements often become bonafide friendships, and our couples + their parents are some of our very favorite people.

"...all of those hours perusing Pinterest, all those endless decisions, all those special details- I get to make them come to life.”
Owner + Lead Wedding Planner
Felicia, owner + lead planner, has been doing events in the gulf coast area for over six years.
With a background in marketing, she first got her taste for events while working as a marketing coordinator for a local orthodontist. When she began planning the client events, the rest was history. She quickly fell in love with creating unique + detailed celebrations that brought people together.
Throughout her extensive career as an event planner, she has worked for well-known organizations, such as the Studer Community Institute + Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida, gaining valuable knowledge + event experience along the way.
When she’s not planning weddings + events (or thinking about planning weddings + events), she’s most likely on the water. She loves paddle boarding + frequently visits different beaches with her mini German Shepherd, Sniper. She also has a potbelly pig named Hamilton Oliver. If you're lucky, you'll hear him oinking in the background during a call with her!
She also absolutely loves to travel + she’s so excited many brides are taking her all over this year!
She adores bows, macarons + peonies, and she loves when you want all three of those at your event!

Morgan Ryan Watkins
Morgan is not only Felicia’s very best friend + closest confidant, but also her right-hand person. Morgan started out helping her best friend behind the scenes with little projects, not realizing she was going to fall completely in love with events + weddings.
She grew up helping friends + family members with all sorts of celebrations, so it came as no surprise that she had a natural eye for detail + talent for design.
From keeping a meticulous planner with daily activities to color coordinating her own home, she’s always had a knack for keeping things beautiful and on time.
As Felicia By Design’s first associate planner, she brings a fresh set of eyes + a different design perspective.
When Morgan isn’t putting together beautiful balloon arches + charcuterie displays, she’s with her Boykin Spaniel, Lady May, or her brand new baby girl, Madalyn Blake.
Balancing all those activities is nothing for Morgan; after all, she’s a natural when it comes to 𝙗𝙚𝙖𝙪𝙩𝙞𝙛𝙪𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙘𝙤𝙤𝙧𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙤𝙨.
Brooke has always loved event planning; it's truly her passion. She loves having every detail planned out + making sure it is showcased in a way unique to the celebrator.
"I have always been the one to plan all my family events + coordinate everything. I fell in love with the chaos of it all after working at a fine dining restaurant in Orange Beach, AL. I was promoted to putting together holiday events + I knew then that I loved it and wanted to do it forever.
In the Fall of 2018, I decided to switch my major to events. I graduated in 2019 with a double degree in Hospitality Management and Event Planning. While in school, I began volunteering for Joy of Life on the Gulf Coast + was the event planner for the St. Judes Mardi Gras Ball.
I have always loved weddings, and I promise I cry at every single one of them. To me, wedding planning is not about the perfectness of the day but the people in it who make it perfect. I will strive to make sure your day is as perfect as it can be.
When I am not helping coordinate weddings, I either am at home with a book in my hand, working on designs for a t-shirt company I own, or spending downtime with my boyfriend, Jake Moore, and my Treeing Walker Coonhound, Jaxon."
