My name is Maliquea (easier to say than to spell) I’m a Virginia native, spending the days of my twenty-somethings in Winston Salem, NC. In addition to typing my heart out on the pages of this blog, I’m also the owner and certified wedding planner of Starnes & Co. Event Planning, the little business that grew beyond my wildest dreams and fills my heart with joy each day. Since our start in 2016, my team and I have helped over twenty-five couples enjoy a stress free wedding day! I love weddings and events so much that in March of 2018 I took a giant leap of faith and became the owner of my own Wedding Venue, Muse at the Mill Events!

Hello Lovely!

I’m in love with the twinkle in a bride’s eye when she tells me her vision, and the sound of “I feel so much better...” after a bridal meeting is music to my ears. I’m convinced I was a peony in my past life and if you’re looking for the keys to my heart all you need is a matcha latte with coconut milk and whip cream, and a giant slice of wedding cake. The unconditional love and favor I receive from Christ, transcends the boundaries between my life and business overflowing my heart with hope and courage that’s sufficient for chasing my dreams. I’m passionate about sharing that love and grace with everyone I meet and if you’re not careful I’ll convince you to chase your dreams too! 

My husband, D’Andre is my biggest crush, best friend, business partner, and doggy dad to our Goldendoodle Winston. We spend our days nestled in the comfort of our couch binge watching The Office, or romantically strolling the aisles of the nearest Target. I pray that this online home I’ve created for my heart’s desires, passion projects, and latest musings finds you at the door often, inviting you in with a smile, a warm hug, and an offer to stay a while!

"Maliquea was wonderful to work with! We planned our wedding, but we needed someone to coordinate our vendors and our guests/wedding party on the day of our wedding - and Maliquea and her husband did it so well. Everyone always knew where to be and when to be there, and I did not have to worry about any of the vendors/details on our big day. Starnes & Co. was a great addition to our wedding!!"

"Maliquea is the BEST! She is so easy to work with and so helpful. She was always willing to answer any questions I had and provide any help or advice. Maliquea made our wedding day flawless, and I couldn’t recommend her enough. Her husband helped on our wedding day and he was just as amazing. So much love for Starnes & Co.!"
