I wasn’t always an event planner, nor did I ever think that I would some day be running a company. It was one of those dreams that we all have tucked away…one of those dreams that we say we might “some day” follow, but deep down, don’t actually believe is a part of our reality.
I began my post college life as a music teacher. My job was rewarding and my students were my life. Twelve years went by, during which I had earned my masters degree in administration. I began to think like a business woman, and was beginning to feel the entrepreneurial side of me bubble to life. I woke up one summer morning to the realization that I had been teaching my students to listen to their hearts and follow their dreams, but I had never once taken my own advice; I realized it was time. Within a week, I resigned from my position. If I was going to make a significant change, I knew that it could not be a gradual process. I spent the next month creating a business plan, a website, and specific branding ideas. Within two months, I launched Blue Fancy Events. I have never looked back.
Today, I am surrounded by a team of hard-working and compassionate people that carry out the Blue Fancy philosophy to its fullest degree. This company wouldn’t be where it is today without the hard work of my amazing staff, supportive family, and our incredible clients.
Lead Planner, Administrative Director
I have always been drawn to the thrill of planning events and parties. I would jump in and plan my friends birthdays and family gatherings to ensure that no one else felt the overwhelming feeling of stress that can come with planning a big event. Because in those moments when the intense stress would normally set in, I felt this incredible sense of purpose.
I then found myself drawn to the wedding industry after high school. I became a wedding singer and loved every single moment of it, but somehow always found a way to connect with the wedding planner and offer up my help in anyway possible. Eventually my friends started getting married. and asking me for my guidance and help. I was hooked.
When the opportunity opened up to work with Blue Fancy Events, I felt like everything fell into place. I am so excited to meet you and make your wedding day dreams come true!
Lead Planner, Social Media Specialist
I think everyone can remember the moment in school when they were asked what they wanted to be when they grew up. I remember circling the room; there were plenty of doctors, lawyers, and a whole lot of athletes, but when she turned to me my answer was one not yet listed, ‘Wedding Planner’.
I recently realized that growing up had gotten in the way of this once very real dream. That’s when I reached out to Blue Fancy Events and Meredith – who is now helping me fulfill my dream.
My background in project management, understanding of pop culture and trends, attention to minute details, and ability to keep organized under even the most stressful situations, will ensure smooth sailing before, during and after your big day. I love to take the hard stuff head on and push through to create something beautiful and effortless.
Although the colors, flowers, and venues are fun to pick, my ultimate goal is to make my couples feel cared for and heard. It’s important that this day is about you – what you want, what you hope for, what you have always dreamed of. I am always aiming to bring your vision to life – and I won’t stop until you’re happy!
I have always loved anything weddings! After planning and attending my friends weddings, I decided to jump in to the wedding industry as a career! I have spent years working with brides to find and create their perfect wedding dress and now I am doing the same for their entire big day! My goal is to create a space where you can be free to be creative and achieve your vision for your wedding while having confidence that everything will be executed to perfection without worry.
When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my husband and family, taking mini vacations or watching Friends on repeat. I’m so excited to get to know you and help you plan your wedding day!
Administrative Assistant, Lead Planner
I have always been an avid planner and loved to structure things out to perfection. Out of high school, I struggled to find my professional direction, and have tried many different career caveats in the process. I was trying to find something that couples my love for organization, planning, and design with my love for making connections and meeting new people. That’s when I reached out to Blue Fancy Events and Meredith. I had an overwhelming sense of purpose and direction upon securing a spot with this amazing team and company. When I started, I felt immediately equipped and ready to begin my career as a planner, knowing I had a great team and mentor behind me.
My experience in social media management and working in the beauty and cosmetology industry paired with my interest in current fashion and beauty trends provides me with a strong foundation to make your day as perfect as you imagined it to be.
In my time away from work, I love to spend time with my two year old Cattle Dog, Rocky. He is a ball of energy and loves to go hiking and swimming whenever I get the chance to take him. My boyfriend and I go to the zoo whenever we can and are total animal lovers. As far as myself, I am happiest walking the aisles of target or riding my horse, Faja.
My promise is to carry every detail out exactly as described with care and thought behind it. My main goal, amongst the designing and planning, is to make sure you are heard, understood, and looked after with your best interest in mind. While enjoying a day you’ve put a lot of thought into, you should feel confident in the event being executed beautifully with everything taken care of. I am so excited to meet you and make your vision come to life, bigger and better than expected
