Combining a passion for planning and logistics with a unique background in event management, Macky is excited to now put her experience to use at P.S. Weddings. With an eye for detail and a love for check-lists, Macky knew that event planning was the perfect fit for her. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from the University of South Carolina, Macky knew she wanted to change directions and returned to school to complete her Master’s in Sports and Entertainment Management. From there, she moved on to events on a grand scale, working for three years at the Colonial Life Arena, an 18,000 seat venue in Columbia, South Carolina. Following a move to Washington, D.C., she further honed her experience at a special events venue – Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital on Capitol Hill – followed by several years of corporate planning as a member of the global events department at the Institute of International Finance. Now, as a Certified Wedding Planner with The Bridal Society, Macky looks forward to making every couple feel welcomed and supported throughout the planning process.

After graduating from Florida State University, Savannah spent nearly a decade in fashion and home decor stores cultivating her visual, design, and client service skills while planning in-store events, launch parties, and managing staffs of up to 100 employees. While she’s always loved the fast pace and constant change of retail, Savannah knew she wanted to connect more to her clients and the community. In 2013, she decided to go back to school to begin her transition into a career where she could establish strong, lasting relationships; and in 2015, she earned a master’s degree in Strategic Communication from Troy University. The desire to bring people together, her boundless creativity, love of lists, meticulous attention to detail, and design savvy ushered Savannah into event planning. As a military brat, she knows what it means to be adaptive and on her toes – ready for anything and everything. She’s always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to assure her clients are happy, relaxed, and enjoying their special day! When she’s not curating menus and coordinating events, Savannah enjoys sewing, photography, running/fitness, cooking, and beach time with her Flat Coated Retriever, Lulu.
Paul Silivos is the founder of P.S. Weddings and principal consultant for our wedding planners. Born and raised in Pensacola, he grew up in the restaurant business where working banquets and events every week was a fun and exciting part of the job.

After nearly a year in Greece following graduation, he returned to Pensacola to take over the Banquet Manager position at Skopelos Restaurant in 2006.

After three years of coordinating the banquets and weddings on site, he expanded his responsibility and experience by becoming an Event Coordinator with Nancy’s Catering & Events in 2009 which allowed him to begin planning all the wedding details with couples from day one.Ten years after starting wedding coordination and nearly five hundred weddings later, he loves his job more than ever. “Every couple is unique and every wedding is different…and I love being able to sit down and put a plan to a vision.”
