Hello, my name is Teresa and I am the lead planner and owner of De Malay Celebrations.

I live in Chesterfield with my husband, my youngest son, and our two little Frenchie dogs. We love to watch movies and spend time with our family. When I told my family and friends about my decision to become an event planner they all said the same thing, “Oh, that is so you!”. When it’s time to plan and coordinate an event I get excited because I’m very passionate about everything I set out to do, and I like to make people happy with my work. Successful detailed planning and coordination of celebrations, resulting in beautiful memories for my clients, is a “Win Win” for both my clients and me!

You may wonder, why choose De Malay Celebrations over other event planners? It is very simple. When you come to me with your ideas already set, I won’t be surprised as many Brides have dreamed of this day their whole life. Don’t worry, nothing will be too crazy, too small or too big for me to handle.

And if you come to me without ideas, I will talk to you and your fiancé to help find what constitutes the Perfect Ceremony for you, you may be surprised at what the results are! Together, we can create that perfect wedding you crave so much.

My experience includes:
  • 6 years in the beauty industry as a Stylist.
  •  10 years in the fashion industry working as Visual Merchandiser, Private Style Consultant, and Business Manager working with high end jewelry for a big corporation.
  • Independent Planner and Coordinator of many gatherings, tea parties, birthday parties, and anniversaries in Northen Virginia.
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Merchandising.
  • Certified Wedding Planner.
  • Certified Etiquette Consultant.
