Hi! I’m Stephanie.

Animal lover, event planner, dog walker, wife, and mother to this sweet little guy, Mumford.

With a full heart, my mission is to help you live out your dream wedding by involving your furry companions on your special day!

The idea for Wags & Garland came to me during my own wedding planning in 2010. My husband and I wanted to include our bulldog Kingston in our special day, but we could not find a stress-free way to make that happen and we did not want to inconvenience our friends or family members. It was clear to me this service was needed to assist brides and grooms in similar circumstances and it was my goal to one day to fulfill this need within the wedding industry.


After 20 years in special events and community relations for the National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball, I decided to take a leap from the sports industry to the wedding industry and do what I love most - having clients that are tail waggin' happy to see me! With my deep affection for animals, coupled with my event planning background and passion for the wedding industry, I knew I could create a professional and personalized experience for both human and furry clients.

Most importantly, I am trained in Pet First Aid & CPR and Canine Safety & Handling. I am registered, licensed, and insured, and I promise to love your fur babies as much as my own.


I could not be more excited for you as you begin the next chapter of your lives together, and I’m thrilled you’ve chosen to include your pup on your special day! With Wags & Garland, I can assure you that your wedding day will be absolutely paw-fect.


Meet Mumford

My momma is passionate, loves animals, and is so much fun to work with...I can tell you that, because I am always with her!

We travel together, meet with wedding planners and photographers, and I help her explore beautiful wedding venues throughout the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

When you speak to her over the might hear me barking in the background... but it's just to say “Hi!” to you. Woof. Woof.
