Hi! I'm Lindsey, the owner of Ivory Hound Weddings. I am originally from Florence, South Carolina but now call the state of North Carolina “home.” Growing up, I knew that my destiny was to work with animals in any capacity.
After years of experience in the Wedding Industry, I knew that after adopting our dogs, including them in our wedding day would be a challenge but also a non-negotiable! When I wasn't working in weddings, or getting my Masters of Social Work, I was working at Animal Rescues, Doggie Daycares, & doing daily Pet care. So when I was given the opportunity to own a business where I could incorporate both of my passions, It was no question.
My mission is to help bring top of the line pet services to you on your wedding day & help relieve all of the stress and mess that can come along with it!
When I'm not becoming best friends with every dog I meet, you can find my wife Octavia and me snuggling our two rescue dogs - Drogo and Ocean - and our cat, Squeaky, roller skating the greenway, or sipping martinis on our front porch.
Marisa started her career in the corporate world, quickly realizing that she did not want to stay long. In early 2020 a new career opportunity in the fitness world brought Marisa to Raleigh, where she decided to also pursue her passion for animals. Starting as a dog walker and sitter, Marisa is now well versed in dog care services.
After a few years of having no pets, Marisa finally filled her void with a puppy for the 2021 new year. When she isn't working, she is spending as much time as possible training, playing with, and loving her Golden Doodle - Blue!
