Meg Hooper and Taylor Oliver
Meg Hooper and Taylor Oliver founded Oliver Hooper Events in 2013 to bring the highest level of personal service and creative design to weddings and social events in the Greenville, South Carolina area. They have planned events and weddings (both local and destination) of all sizes, ranging from intimate seated dinners to large cocktail receptions. Meg and Taylor consider it a privilege to be entrusted with a client’s special event and are committed to ensuring that the planning process and execution of each event runs smoothly, taking the burden of worry off of the client.
Meg is passionate about serving people through her gifts of organization and communication. She first honed these skills during her college years, when she worked as an intern in the First Lady’s Communication and Social Offices at the White House. Upon graduation from the University of Virginia, Meg moved to Greenville where she worked in campus ministry at Furman University for two years and on staff at a local church for four years. After marrying in 2007, Meg was inspired to start this business by the example of seamless service and attention to detail provided by her own wedding planners and was thrilled to offer the same experience to clients in Greenville. Meg began planning and coordinating weddings in 2009, leading to partnering with Taylor in the spring of 2013 to form Oliver Hooper Events.
Meg is married to Travis Hooper, a Greenville native, and they have three daughters: Ridley, Grace and Liza. Meg loves to spend time with her family and friends – particularly in downtown Greenville, in the mountains at Lake Toxaway, and back home in Texas.
Born with a love for making things beautiful, Taylor is the creative force behind Oliver Hooper Events. She loves fashion, interior design, art, floral design, and most of all, weddings! When, at age 14, she begged her mother for a copy of Martha Stewart Weddings in the grocery store checkout line, her dream of being a wedding planner was put into motion. Taylor’s background in florals, coupled with her natural gifts in styling and design, allow her to take a client’s vision and bring it to life for each event. She effortlessly keeps in step with the latest trends while staying true to a timeless look of southern sophistication.
Taylor was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. After graduating from the University of Mississippi with a degree in liberal arts, she moved to Greenville, South Carolina in 2006 to work at Furman University. During her time at Furman, she met her husband Bradley and they married in January of 2009. Together they have three young children: Eliza, Gresham and Marshall.
