Handley McCrory, Owner & Executive Planner
Owner and Executive Planner Handley McCrory is a Mountain Brook, Alabama native who has always had dreams of one day owning her own event planning company. She attended the College of Charleston and the University of Alabama where she studied Interior Design and Event Planning. After college she returned to Birmingham to work as the Senior Event Coordinator for a wedding venue. After her time working in the event industry, she was able to confidently carry out her dream of starting her own company. Thus, Handley Breaux Designs was born.

Not one to overlook any detail, Handley prides herself in meticulously carrying out every event with grace and ease.
