Moses Lake, WA
I am a fully certified event and wedding planner. I can help you at any stage of the event, whether it is coordinating every detail of your wedding or simply making a dinner reservation for a large group.
I was born in Seattle, WA and grew up on Mercer Island. I now live in Moses Lake, WA with my husband, our cat and our dog. I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Organizational Communication from Eastern Washington University and have worked in a variety of areas prior to beginning my career in event planning. I have worked in a medical office, for a large construction company and also for a large home improvement retailer. Working in several different types of environments has given me the skills and knowledge I need to be successful to work on my own.
Avid Events, Woodinville, WA - Internship
During my internship in college I worked for an event planner who specialized in corporate meetings, parties, etc. I assisted her by researching venues for large holiday parties and calling and making reservations along with scheduling itinerary for day of event. I researched and came up with creative ideas for entertainment in event festivities. I also assisted on the day of an actual business's annual summer party by helping to set up, make sure all activities were running smoothly and clean up of event.
My Wedding - June 23, 2007
I designed and coordinated all details of my own wedding that was held outdoors on family property in Cle Elum, WA. I designed layout of ceremony and reception, arranged dates, times with Officiant, Florist, DJ, caterer and friends and family in wedding. I picked dresses and arranged fittings with attendants. I coordinated ceremony layout including traditional and personal vows and readings done by special friends. I picked and personalized wedding invitations that I also personally addressed and collected and tallied when returned. Other tasks included shopping and ordering decorations, preparing ceremony programs on home computer and putting together (programs were made to be fans with one side giving names of wedding party and the other being the ceremony layout and gluing on popsicle sticks and tying on ribbon).
I offer event planning for every significant occasion. I can help you plan your kid's sweet sixteen, your best friends baby shower, your daughter's wedding or even a large corporate dinner meeting. I can simply offer consultations to help give you ideas for how to design and plan your event, I can be your full service event planner and assist in taking care of coordinating all functions of the event or I can just be present on the day of the occasion to make sure all the events necessary occur and everyone is on task.
I offer a first half hour complimentary consultation where I will obtain information from you and discuss with you your idea(s) and help you plan the event you are want.
