Preemie Bella Celebrations is a one-stop shop for anyone who is thinking of planning a fabulous event. From the point of conception, they’re capable of providing everything including invitations, reservations, etiquette services, venue selections, vendors’ coordination, budgeting, decorations, party favors and more. They also have a photo booth which brings more flavor. Whatever the case, they can handle it.

When owner Stephanie Finney first started her business, she had the greatest idea of how to name it. She has always loved taking pictures, planning parties, and coordinating events. She focused her energy around those things and came up with a brilliant idea. Preemie Bella signifies the celebration of a beautiful preemie, Noelle, her daughter who weighed only two pounds at birth. She spent a little over six weeks in the NICU and faced a lot of challenges while doing so. There were uncertainties and surgeries she had to undergo. “From day one, the doctor and nurses told me she was feisty, and she proved to be. Watching her fight for her life made me cherish and celebrate each day I was able to spend with her. That experience changed my perception on life and how I should live it,” says Stephanie.

Preemie Bella Celebrations really took off when Stephanie decided to work to live, instead of living to work. She made a very tough decision to leave a comfortable and stable job in the field of criminal justice. “I had become complacent but I was very stressed and unhappy. I knew several co-workers who were being diagnosed with all kinds of medical conditions relating to stress and I knew I had to get out before the job consumed me,” she says. Stephanie wanted to enjoy all life had to offer her. “I reflected back on the experience with my daughter and decided to put those feelings into action.”

“I love seeing people being happy and enjoying themselves. I choose to create an atmosphere where people can come and have a great time,” she said. “Being a business owner gives me a sense of pride and it gives me an avenue to express my creativity.”

Though they are currently mobile, Stephanie and Noelle hope to eventually have a storefront one day. While the internet has helped the business significantly, having an actual physical location would help take Preemie Bella to the next level by allowing them to showcase their products and services in a consistent setting. This will also give them the ability to offer various types of Photo Booths for events. “I want people to remember the name Preemie Bella Celebrations and how it gave life to their vision,” Stephanie says.
