I am a big believer in the idea that when you have a goal, you should plan your work and work your plan. However, when it came to planning our wedding, we had no idea how to even begin. We were so concerned with obtaining the right to marry that we had not put any thought into the actual event itself.
From our very first meeting, she made it clear that she was here to facilitate our event so that we could enjoy our special day and make it everything we had ever dreamed. While we were going to forgo some of the fun things that go along with planning a wedding, Ivory insisted that we have the whole experience. She took us to a variety of vendors to look at linens and tableware. We went cake tasting. She even organized a really special day for all of the female attendants who came to town to pick out dresses. She coordinated with all of the male attendants so that we could get fitted for our tuxedos together, and she made that a special evening as well. Throughout each of these experiences, Ivory’s gentle hand was there to encourage and guide us. She helped us understand how one decision affected the next, and she would constantly remind us of the budget that we were working with. No matter how worked up or spun out of control we became, she would constantly remind us that she was here for us. Even when I tried to insist that once the reception started the day needed to be about our guests, she insisted that we had worked too hard to make this dream a reality and that the day was about us.
If you are looking for someone who will listen to you and guide you, then look no further than Ivory Morgan-Burton and her team at Storybook events. We can say without reservation that without Ivory, our day would have been extremely stressful, and we know that the millions of little things that needed to be handled would have fallen on us. While we did not know how to plan our work or work the plan, Ivory and her team did. Thus, we will be eternally grateful to Ivory and her team for giving us such a precious gift—a perfect day that will live in our memories for as long as we both shall live.

Ivory knows her stuff and is one of those perpetually happy people you want to always have around! She is one of the most ethical persons I have ever seen when it comes to doing business with clients and associates, and it generous to a fault in providing help, assistance, a helping hand not only to her clients, but even to her competition when they reach out and need a little assistance. Her part as the Creative Brain behind "The Wedding Planner Magazine" has boosted the publication beyond it's wildest expectations, as well as propelled advertising participants to new heights of branding and recognition. If you need a certified floral designer, a decades of experience planner for not only weddings, but corporate and non-profit (charity) events, Ivory Morgan-Burton, Owner/CEO, of Storybook Events will be a professional you CAN NOT do without.

Ivory is truly selfless individual. Not only that, she is extremely talented and professional. Her leadership as a minister and officiant is matched by her caring, motherly spirit. She's a fantastic planner who also has a special eye for floral artistry. I've worked with her on numerous occasions and look forward to working with her again!"

"Ivory thank you for the perfect wedding! Four months ago when we met with you for the first time you took my magazine photos and ideas and made my wedding a true "story book" day. It was the best night of my life. You made everything flow so smoothly and took all the stress away. I enjoyed my day to the fullest. The décor was out of this world - WOW! I have only been married for two days and I continue to receive comments on how beautiful you pulled together the most elegant wedding I have ever been to! I can't thank you enough for what you have done. I will never forget it for the rest of my life. Now I know why you call your company "Story Book"! Thank you Thank you Thank you!"

I can't begin to say how much I appreciate Ivory and her entire Storybook Events team!! I came to Ivory with no set plans or budget as to what me and my husband wanted. The only request was that we wanted to have something fun, not very traditional, for our family to enjoy. Not only did Ivory plan all the little details of our wedding (flowers, favors, decor), she officiated our marriage and we honestly couldn't have anyone better! In the short time we've known Ivory, she made our wedding personal to her, not "just another marriage". Our family was so happy with the way our ceremony went! My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better day, a more gorgeous venue, reception or a better coordinator!! Ivory and Storybook Events are definitely the people for your next event in Hampton Roads!!

Ivory and her team are fantastic. Honest, creative and determined to see to our last detail. We were told our Christmas Company Gala would be picture perfect. It was. I never doubted our business gala would be anything but great. Thanks to Storybook Events, our company is still getting raves. We will continue to do business with Storybook Events as they decorate and design for our offices each month.

I would recommend Storybook Events for any event. Not just for weddings or birthdays but anytime you are wanting your event to be the way you want it. You can expect Storybook Events to make it happen. As wanting an anniversary celebration and looking for the best to do it, I was not disappointed but found they exceed all my expectations. They are truly professional and attentive to every detail
