Valeriya Nedeva Butler
It started with a passion...
we made it a desire...
We found the tools to make it a reality...
and now we proudly present the outcome:
The founder of the company is an experienced and passionate graduate of a Swiss Hotelier Institute, carrying European culture and traditions.
She understands the importance of one's customs and helps couples incorporate them into their special event. Valeriya specializes in multicultural social events, leaving an artistic,lasting impression.
Valeriya flies off from her home country when she is 19 and goes to seek education in the hospitality industry. Having grown around her successful dad, she has the big dream of education abroad and experience in the customer service field. Thus, she heads towards Suffield, CT where she is accepted in International College of Hospitality Management “ CeasarRitz”. Being a branch of a Hotelier Institute, originating in Switzerland, the college gives her training in upscale service techniques, cooking, wine service, hotel operations and her passion- special events management. After graduating school, Valeriya decides to gather some experience in the hotel business so that better understanding about client's needs and expectations is acquired. She starts building her career in Food and Beverage Department, where she successfully climbs the ladder to a management position. Always looking for a new challenge, Valeriya takes a step forward and relocates to New Orleans in August, 2005, eager to learn front office hotel operations. However, hurricane Katrina impels for a new beginning and puts Val in the Front Office of another Starwood property, located in Chicago. The emotional factor left from this natural disaster only motivates Valeriya and she successfully moves up to front office supervisor and later overnight Manager on Duty. Managing, meeting customer expectations,problem- solving, leadership and delegating, working under pressure; all of that prepared Valeriya for her ultimate passion- event and wedding planning.

There aren't enough words to describe how Val exceeded our expectations in making our wedding day so memorable. Val is extremely professional and was incredible to work with. My fiancee (now husband) and I were so overwhelmed by the details and Val was able to come to the rescue. A week and a half before the wedding, I had an unexpected health issue and I called Val and told her I needed her to take on even more responsibility and deal with the remainder of what needed done. Well, Val not only took on the extra responsibilities but also helped us execute what we envisioned and everything turned out exactly how we wanted. The wedding day went smoothly and there were little hiccups that Val was able to deal with and we were allowed to enjoy our day. Val had the right experience and demeanor to deal with it all. Val can multi-task and is extremely talented in handling every detail. We had 2 surprises for our guests and she handled it amazingly. To this date, our guests are still saying that ours was the best wedding they had ever been to. Overall, I couldn't imagine a better person to work with.
