I absolutely love when someone who was born into the military lifestyle decides to give back and that’s exactly what today’s former Air Force Brat and daughter of a retired CMSGT who served over 26 years and also sister of an Army Wife is doing.

The military lifestyle can be busy and spontaneous. Plans change so easily that it can be hard to plan events and many times can leave a spouse or spouse to be feeling overwhelmed.

Jade Ladson is owner of The Special Occasion an award winning full service wedding and event planning company serving Atlanta , Georgia and beyond. With 15+ years of experience Jade and her team seek to take the stress out of planning your special day.

Jade in her team offer boutique style services and only accept a set number of clients per year in order to offer you each client the utmost personalized service.

In Their Words:


It takes approximately 250 hours to plan a wedding and 150 hours to plan an event from start to finish. With many couples working full time jobs it can often prove difficult to find quality time needed to devote to researching vendors; whether via phone, internet, or face to face.

 SAVINGS: We set & maintain a budget for you and refer you to reliable, professional vendors that can work within your budget parameters. We save you valuable time & energy, by handling all of the pre-wedding supplier’s research for you. We also negotiate discounts with suppliers that we’ve fostered working relationships with over the years.

EXPERIENCE: We will counsel you on what can be achieved within your budgets.  We stay abreast of current trends and unique décor options.  We also stay current on foreign and domestic rules, regulations, and guidelines that may affect your special occasion.

PEACE OF MIND: We’ll be with you every step of the way, taking care of every little detail and ensuring your entire event is a phenomenal success.  On the Big Day, we will be onsite armed with our 100 piece emergency kit ready to synchronize setup, monitor timing, and be with you, your families & attendants throughout the day to ensure that everything flows smoothly.
