Meet the Planners

Handling your stress so your wedding is a success!

Ericia Hart

Owner / Certified Wedding Planner

Hi there! Now that your partner has popped the question, you’re wondering what’s next? Or is your mind racing with so many ideas? Planning a wedding is exciting for some but overwhelming for others. Planning has always been a passion for me. I’ve always enjoyed watching wedding shows such as Four Weddings, Say Yes to the Dress, and Bridezillas. While watching, I would always take note of what went well and come up with ideas on what I would do different. In 2017, I began planning my own wedding. I was inspired by the idea to help others and be an advocate for those who didn’t understand the wedding planning process. The following year I married the guy of my dreams and founded Blushing Brides.

So, who is Ericia? Well, I was born in New York and raised in Marion, SC. I attended the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks) where I  obtained a degree in Finance with a minor in Nursing. My senior year of college I became a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. A few years after graduating, I obtained my MBA with a concentration in Management. After college, I made Columbia, SC my home and worked in the banking industry for 17 years. I have now transitioned to Human Resources in the health care industry. In addition to helping couples plan their wedding; I enjoy spending late nights on Pinterest, date nights with my husband, and attending my son’s football games. Well now that you know me, I would love to get to know you. 


Victoria Belton

Managing Partner / Lead Planner

Hello! I am the managing partner and lead planner with Blushing Brides Consulting Firm. I joined this partnership in 2023 and look forward to all the beautiful weddings to come!

So, who am I? My name is Victoria Belton, and I grew up in Fayetteville, NC as a “military brat” before moving to South Carolina prior to college. I attended The University of South Carolina in Columbia and obtained my BS degree in Statistics. I have years of experience in fields such as customer service, retail, banking, healthcare and currently work as a regulatory analyst with a utility company. I have been married to my wonderful husband since 2012. I have a handsome son and beautiful daughter. I enjoy spending time with family, being a sports and dance mom, traveling and watching movies.

So why wedding planning? Planning events has always been a passion of mine for years. While others shy away at the idea of event planning, I enjoy every aspect of the process. Being a part of the journey on someone’s special day is the most appealing role of a wedding planner. I love getting to know each couple individually and walking them through the process of planning a wedding that reflects their love for one another. I believe wedding planning should not be stressful, but an enjoyable experience for the couple.

Congratulations on your engagement! Let Blushing Brides take this journey with you towards the day you say “I Do” to your forever person!


Your Vision, Your Wedding, Your Way!
