A Houston-based wedding planning & event design firm for the career-driven professional and companies who care.

My middle name is LaRue and my Godfather + my best friend called me Swa; hence the name SwaLaRue! But let’s talk about you, shall we? If you're feeling overwhelmed trying to organize the wedding you've been day-dreaming of, I'm here for you. Working with me is like discussing your next business deal over donuts because I'm both professional and sweet.

I've planned weddings for Nigerian, Moroccan, Chinese, Filipino, Mexican and Armenian cultures held everywhere from Houston to New Orleans, Atlanta D.C. and the Caribbean Islands; in Cathedrals, Barns, Ballrooms, Art Galleries and National Monuments. I’ve also spent years of rigorous training in the military as an Army Officer, among many other career milestones like obtaining a Masters in Finance.

When I’m not planning the next event, I’m spending quality time with my family, hitting the gym for a HIIT workout, growing my faith, or sharing my dreams over bottomless mimosas with friends. I’d love to hear your story, help you plan your best day ever, and give you some peace of mind along the way.
