Rebecca Steele, who opened Simply Devine Weddings and Events at 203 Kansas Ave. S.E. in 2008, said there is no greater profession than that of wedding planner.
“It’s creating a new childhood dream every day,” Steele said. “I make visions and dreams come true. What better sense of satisfaction and accomplishment is there?”
Simply Devine was selected as a winner of the prestigious WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards® 2013 for Planning, Decorating and Floral in South Dakota.
Steele said she loves every aspect of her work planning and decorating for the happiest day of a couple’s life.
“I know how stressful weddings can be for brides, grooms and families both as an event, financially and emotionally,” she said. “I felt like wedding planning and decorating is not just limited to big cities and big budgets. There is a need here in rural, central South Dakota for what I do on a realistic budget. I do more than provide floral and rental items. I provide the wedding expertise, resources, help and encouragement along with the pretty flowers, current trends, styles and decor. I bring the pieces of the puzzle together.
“You can never predict the needs of the day. Every wedding is unique from the weather, to the location, to the people, to the combintation of it all together,” Steele said. “From finding socks to sewing buttons and hems, to walking dogs and easing last minute jitters, we are there with the experience and knowledge to make sure everything is perfect.”
Steel is a native of Wessington and graduated from Augustana College in Sioux Falls. She and her husband, Preston Steele, have three children, 5-year-old twins August and Huntley, and 1-year-old Oliver. They live in Huron.
Simply Devine coordinates, plans and decorates weddings all over South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska.
