Hi friend! I’m so glad you’re here!

I am the owner and lead wedding planner, Soncerai “Soni” Brown. I started Love Always, Wedding Planning after a creative journey through the planning and preparation for my own wedding. It was the “I wish I had” and “I should’ve” coupled with a passion for all things planning and organizing that ignited my desire to help other couples have their own dream weddings.

My given name is Soncerai, which means “a beautiful sunrise” in Native American. I go by Soni to make it easier on my friends and clients! I am originally from Newark, New Jersey and I come from a LOUD talking multi cultural family. Being immersed in an environment with so many cultures has fueled my love of multicultural weddings. I am married with 3 children (4 year old boy/girl twins & 7 year old daughter) and a golden doodle puppy (10 months). I am a late night snackaholic who is addicted to sweets: cookies, cakes, pies, donuts, ice cream, pudding. I do not like coffee, onions, peppers, or mushrooms – yuk. I am a proud Enneagram 8. I love to talk, eat, shop, travel and watch DIY shows like Flea Market Flip. Once you get to know me, you will find that I am fun, loud, caring, helpful, organized, and I am extremely passionate about weddings!! My drink of choice will always be wine and champagne (specifically, Prosecco). Most importantly, I love God and my family
