Meet TLS


Tonia Lashonda Sims is TLS Wedding & Special Event's founder and chief planning officer.  Tonia, who specializes in chic, modern, and savvy event designs, is an accomplished event planner.   She has coordinated and designed events for valued clients ranging from children's parties for friends and family to annual programs for the Mississippi Center for Justice and The Mississippi Department of Education.


Although she has more than ten years experience as a professional educator, Tonia's passion for decor and design dates back to the early 1990s when her first design experience was the redesign of her of her bedroom as a sixteen year old. "Once I saw the results, I realized I had aligned my work with my passion!"  Tonia expresses, "It was a cerebral as well as visceral experience.  At that point, I decided to use my God-given talents to help others experience the same exhiliration I experienced after redesigning my bedroom."


This ardent mother of three is no stranger to commitment or hard work.  She simultaneously juggles a teaching career, wedding and event planning, and the never-ending job of motherhood.  "I love being fully engaged in my passions (events, family, teaching), but being a mother is the most rewarding," confesses Tonia.  "At the end of a long day, I look forward to seeing my children's smiling faces.  Being a mother has taught me allegiance and patience, both of which are helpful in wedding and event planning and teaching."  Her fiance', Larnell Bush, supports her quest to fulfill her highest potential.  "All I do, I do for them."


Oprah Winfrey, Colin Cowie, and David Tutera are a few of Tonia's role models.  She admires their diligence, focus, and passion in their respective endeavors.  As indicated by her testimonials, Tonia provides top-notch wedding and event planning services to each of her valued clients by treating them with dignity and respect while flawlessly and seamlessly executing their plans to create signature events and fond memories.


TLS evolved from a start up that began with a teenager's bedroom redesign into the go-to wedding and event planning company in the region.  She, along with her creative, dedicated, and skilled team of professionals, endeavor to solidify and sustain their presence in the global event planning business one valued client at a time!
