Stephanie Whitaker’s first memory of the infectious allure of weddings came when she was a flower girl at age 7. Stephanie says, “I will never forget how much I dreamed of being a bride and loved all the festivities that came along with planning a wedding”. Although she received a master’s degree in accounting and started her career as an auditor, in 2007 she joined the field where her heart had always been. She opened her first wedding business and then Engaged Wedding Library a year and a half later. Since then, she has worked with more than 200 wedding professionals in Birmingham. Stephanie and her [hunky] husband Matthew, have 2 children, Scarlett and Knox. Stephanie enjoys decorating, traveling, hosting parties, and date nights at Chez Fon Fon.

Sidney grew up with a planner in her backpack since she was in the 3rd grade and has had organization fever ever since then. After interning with graphic designers in college who worked in the wedding industry, she fell in love with the idea of getting to help brides plan for their most special day. After graduating with a bachelor of fine arts in studio art from Birmingham-Southern College in 2018, Sidney has been working for Engaged as a wedding planner and vendor expert. Sidney loves spending her time outside of the wedding world eating at all the great Birmingham restaurants around town, working out at her favorite barre class, loving on her 2 sweet pups & grabbing steel city pops with her friends.
social media & Communications Director
Callie grew up watching “Say Yes to the Dress” and “27 Dresses” on repeat and attended any wedding she could score an invite to. One of her greatest loves is bringing people together to celebrate others and foster community, from planning supper club for her friends to throwing showers for her friends getting married. She graduated with a Human Development and Family Sciences degree from Samford University, and decided to combine her love for weddings and planning gatherings for others. Callie interned here at Engaged before leaving for Haiti for a few months and we absolutely adored her, which led to her coming back to join our team! In her free time, you can find Callie baking, painting with watercolor, spending time at coffee shops with friends or talking about her Mission work in Haiti and various other countries.
