Alyssa Triplett- Lead Planner




Alyssa has been with the SLW team for more than 2 years now. She has experience in over 30 weddings, some of which were lead by her along with the amazing SLW staff. Alyssa is the back bone to the SLW team. She excels in being organized and creative. Alyssa is the creative drive in SLW. Her talents include calligraphy, floral design, and diy projects left and right. Any bride should be honored to have Alyssa on their team!

Alyssa’s passion for event planning began years ago while still in high school as she was tasked to head up her prom committee. After being the captain of the prom committee three years running, she took her love for event planning to college where she has been asked to plan many events for Christopher Newport University. Alyssa has also planned several charity events for a local hospital in her home town. Due to Alyssa’s very impressive resume, her natural role in the leadership position and her passion for planning, it was a no brainer to bring Alyssa to the POC team!! Since being a part of our team, Alysaa has assisted in over 20 weddings.

Alyssa loves… pink, glitter, crafts, and all things Tiffany & Co.!  She’s obsessed with traveling and organization (she has three separate planners!).  Her dog is like her child; she’s way too spoiled and trust us, with a name like “Sugah” Alyssa is  not at all ashamed to admit it!



  With over 100 weddings under our belt now, it’s no wonder that Pinch of Charm Weddings is one of Virginia’s leading wedding planning firms!
