This premier wedding venue overflowed with southern charm for this Illinois couple. Of course, Stacey and Tasha brought their own charm to The Mackey House along with friends and family from all over the United States. Not only was the venue a premier venue, the vendors chosen by the bride were also premier vendors. The list includes Jerina Mac Photography (Savannah), Southern Graces (caterer, florist and detail decor from Beaufort, SC), Rev. Joe Wadas (Savannah), DJ Joe Kollege (Chicago, Ill.), and planners Jackie Weems & Genise Walker.
The Couple. Stacey & Tasha met in September of 2001. Tasha had been out with her friends, celebrating her birthday. At the end of the night, hugs and goodbyes were said to her friends and there stood “Mr. Right”. Yes, I’m talking about Stacey; who at that time was a stranger asking, “Where’s my hug?”. Now who in their right mind would turn down a request from such a handsome. Well, of course, Tasha being the friendly person that she is, gave Stacey a hug that would make him think he had been a friend forever.
Although their courtship was brief, they maintained their friendship over the years. In August 2010, they rekindled their relationship and on September 6, 2015 they became engaged.
