What motivated you to start your business?
After many years working in the industry at various companies, I felt inspired to open my open business and pursue an entrepreneurial dream. I wanted to offer clients a place to come to for extraordinary events with a focus on logistics and production.
Tell us what makes your business different from other wedding companies?
I believe that my 20+ years in the industry with experience in everything from political advance work to large scale social events and non profit galas to weddings allows me to create events from the ground up unlike anybody else. We create a really strong foundation for our events (and ultimately our clients) by starting with logistical details. From there we layer in experiential elements that hits all of the senses and emotions resulting in an unforgettable event that is also flawlessly produced and managed.
How did you handle the pandemic? Did your business model change?
What is your best advice for engaged couples?
My best advice for engaged couples is to understand that while a wedding planner is capable of saving money for a client, this is not actually what we do. In fact, the inherent value of a planner is the investment in the expertise and the ability to problem solve creatively. So, my advice is hire a planner and understand that planners are truly the key to a successful event!
What is something you constantly strive for?
Oh I strive to reach my own expectations every day in every area of my life. From this business now going on 15 years next year to my equestrian competitions with my horses to running my family’s 81 year old restaurant Gene & Georgetti. I want to show up every day and give the very best version of myself and contribute to making everything I am involved in better.
