Excellence is in the details!

I have a passion for details! I enjoy creating an atmosphere that inspires people. You could be looking to have a quaint old fashion wedding or a high tech corporate event; I will be able to succeed every time! I am very detailed oriented and most importantly I focus on how you want your event and turn your vision into mine! I do a lot of research and prepare a menu of choices for my clients. Your event will always stand out and your guests will talk about it for years to come!

I have spent 16 years in and out of the fashion world, from being a retail district manager, to owning my own business and having 2 showrooms I have become very savvy in the "people" business. I have coordianted many events for my stores, my business and my family.

Services

I have a wide focus of events that I specialize in:
1. Weddings – from guests of 50-500 no wedding is too small or big!
2. Social – Centered parties- birthdays, graduations, reunions and retirement parties- these are some of my favorite events to be involved with
3. Holiday parties- New Year’s, St. Patrick’s Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas- if I left out a holiday you would like to celebrate I am happy to add it in!
4. Corporate events- whether it is a social corporate event to build moral or a professional meeting I am able to coordinate them both.

There are 4 types of services I will provide-
1. Consultation- this would include an appointment with myself to discuss your event and basic details. A onetime meeting to provide you with direction and help you to shape your ideas. I do charge a fee for this, however if you select one of the below packages your fee will be applied to your bill.
2. Planning and Preparation Package- this involves a consultation, then all the planning and preparation work of locating the services and vendors needed. Every detail will be taken care of by me. I will be assisting right up to the day prior to the event
3. Complete Package- this includes consultation, planning and preparatory work and the day of activities. I will be present during the event to ensure that all tasks are accomplished and be there for anything that needs my attention. I will also complete any post event tasks.

My fees vary, so please contact me for a fee schedule- I typically do charge on an hourly rate, but depending on the size of the event that can fluctuate.
