Something Borrowed Weddings was started in 2007 when a friend's daughter needed help with wedding planning. Using previous knowledge of the wedding industry which she gained from experience in catering, our founder set out to create a perfect day for one special bride and groom. With her first wedding done, the spark was ignited and SBW was born.
In 2015 the business grew by one and we are proud to offer the unique service of a mother-daughter team. We hold a strong conviction and passion to represent each wedding. You can rest assured and enjoy your special day knowing that every detail has been attended to by the Something Borrowed Weddings team!

She is committed to creating a confident relationship with each client while learning and understanding the vision they have for their wedding day. Her kind spirit and willingness to "go the extra mile" while providing professional service is the ultimate goal.
When she's not working, Rhonda enjoys spending time with her husband of almost 35 years, playing with her grandchildren, and vacationing with friends.
