Who: Preston Bailey, wedding and special event planner
Specialty: Giving birth to magical spaces for a who’s who list of high profile clients in fashion, entertainment and media. Bailey has an artistic edge that is simply unsurpassed by no one. He is also known for incorporating floral arrangements in unexpected places for his events.
Why He Should Be on Your Radar: While the Panama-born wedding honcho has clients such as Bill Cosby and Laurence Fishburne on his résumé, he has found ways to cater to us working-class folk as well. In 2005, Bailey partnered with the über resort Sandals for destination wedding package collaborations, and then in 2006 he teamed up with 1-800-FLOWERS so that his floral skills could be available in a wallet-friendly way as well.
