Meet Emily

Your Middle Tennessee Day of Coordinator

I'm Emily Sumners-Tuipulotu, and I've been coordinating weddings for over 9 years. I began my career as a full-time, high-volume coordinator with Simple Maui Wedding. During that time, I had the honor of working at beautiful beaches, upscale resorts like The Four Seasons, and a range of public and private venues. 

Now that I've moved back home to Middle Tennessee, I decided to do what I love most (and what I'm best at!) which is offering expert-level guidance as a day-of coordinator. 

My approach to weddings is warm yet polished. Any problem has a solution, every moment is valuable, and each event has unique needs that allow it to be beautiful and memorable. 

I've served as a day-of coordinator for hundreds of weddings, and am excited to now help couples marrying in Middle Tennessee. 

In addition to my work as a coordinator, I also manage the Wedding Industry Insider Podcast and am a freelance wedding writer. My work has appeared in BRIDES, Bridebox, and The Groom Club

Ouside of my career, I'm a mom, step mom, spring board diver, Wheel of Fortune contestant, and aspiring novelist.
