Lucretia Williams is a happy wife to a great husband and mommy to her beautiful daughters. She’s a very proud graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree in Family Financial Management.  Planning events while in college sparked her desire to become an event planner and open her own business.  After graduating from college, she opened Distinct Event Planning. Operating a premiere wedding and event planning business has been her dream from the moment she planned her first wedding. Now with 20 years of event planning experience behind her, she realize her own “dream come true” with each incredible event. She and her team are passionate about delivering the ultimate guest experience from start to finish. She take pride in perfecting stunning details, creating unforgettable visuals and making every moment feel effortless and stress-free. Her weddings and events have been featured with Columbus Weddings Magazine, Munaluchi Bride, Black Bride Magazine, Hostess with the Mostess, Black Bride & Groom Magazine, The Women’s Book Magazine and The Columbus Dispatch. She’s been featured on local TV shows and has written five published articles.


Lucretia is also passionate about sharing her knowledge and growing the planning industry. In 2017, she founded the EmpoWEred Planners Society. Their mission is to provide a platform for wedding and event planners to come together and have real, honest conversations about the business and learn from industry pros while building impactful relationships. They’re taking the secrecy out of “trade secrets” and providing applicable tools for success. Their society hosts an annual conference and other professional development opportunities throughout the year. Lucretia is touring internationally as a speaker and educator. She loves developing professionals and welcome opportunities to speak at conferences, seminars and workshops.
