Desiree Griffin, is a Philly Girl, who ventured to N.C. with her folks just before high school and has planted her beautiful roots in the Monkey Junction, region of Wilmington, North Carolina! While pursuing a career in the medical field after graduating from, Miller Motte Business school and holding a Medical Coding and Billing position, for a little under a decade, impressively she still carved out time to share in her passion; to organize events, decorate and plan within her community, church and other charitable organizations. She knew that when she was in this creative giving element, assisting with all the love embraced, romantic ventures, and charitable scenarios, that she was at her most happy place! Therefore, she decided to launch a side career, and she became a certified wedding and event planner! She has operated her own successful wedding planning business, and comes to us with valuable knowledge in the industry. We are grateful to have her as part of, The Pearl and The Petal Team as our Assistant Director of Events! Desiree has been married for 22 years to her loving husband, Craig, and they have two beautiful daughters, 22 year old, Maya, and 8 year old, Makayla.
