Stella & Company Events owner, Meredith Akers McCullough is a graduate of the University of Mississippi with a Bachelors of Science in Hospitality Management. Following graduation, she moved back to her hometown of Brandon, and decided to begin the journey of Stella & Company. After a college summer internship with a well known wedding planner, that turned into a part time job, Meredith knew weddings were going to be her niche! To gain more event experience, she volunteered as the Delta Gamma social chair, and worked on numerous charity events. Continuing to work events part time and attending wedding professional conferences, Meredith was well trained and ready to start helping clients produce one of a kind Stellabrations. In 2011, Stella & Company opened as an event planning company and retail store. Meredith has grown Stella & Company tremendously since 2011 and recently made the decision to close the retail store at the end of October 2016, in pursuit of the event planning as a full time job for her and her team. Since 2011, Meredith and her team have produced over 200 Stellabrations.
