Hey, welcome to my website! My name is Teyanna Bailey, and I am the Owner and Lead Designer at Essence of Flair Weddings and Events.
In November 2013, I started my business named Gift of Gab Greetings where I created Greeting Cards. Although Greeting Cards were great, E-cards were on the rise, so I didn't see it going far. The following year in 2014, I started making Wedding Invitations and loved it. This was also the year my mom passed away. My mom and I were very close, and I took the loss very hard.
The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever.
Fast forward to 2015, I was successful at Invitations but so was Evite! So, I decided to take a break and go to school. I went for Interior Architecture and Design with the intention of being an Interior Designer. However, I was missing weddings and the joy I brought to my couples. So, I decided to still do Wedding Invitations but add on services, like Design and Decor.
When I'm designing a Wedding or Event, I get to really show off my creativity and bring my clients vision to life. As if decor wasn't enough, I decided to go back to school again. This time for Floral Design where I trained under Celebrity Floral Designer, Michael Gaffney in NYC.
Event Planning and Designing is very important to me. I treat every client how I want to be treated and I treat your event like it's my own. My mom passed away on the day I delivered invitations to my very first client, so she never got to see any of my work. I feel like my mom is smiling down on me with happiness and joy, so not only do I want to make my clients happy, I want to make my mom proud!

“Teyanna created the wedding of our dreams, we are SO grateful! She was very easy to work with and made the whole day seamless. We could not have asked for someone better to not only bring our vision to life, but to Coordinate so I wouldn't have to worry about the stress and just enjoy my day”

“Teyanna and Essence of Flair was truly an answer to my prayers. I had a vision of what I wanted for my wedding day and she executed it perfectly. From our first meeting, she listened attentively and made sure she understood the assignment. Teyanna never tried to push her own agenda, what I wanted was always top priority. She was patient and also provided insight that helped me not only in the decor of my venue but in other areas of my wedding. Teyanna was absolutely amazing."

“Teyanna is THE BEST! We would hire her again and again -My wedding ceremony and reception were perfectly decorated and they exceeded my expectations. When I walked into the ceremony and reception area I said this is what I wanted. Teyanna held my hand through the process. If there were negative things happening, I did not know because Teyanna was so in control and positive. I got so many compliments on the decor. All I can say is Essence of Flair understood my vision and followed through. Teyanna went above and beyond. I would recommend her and Essence of Flair to anyone that is planning a wedding or any special event..”
