Eight years ago, my dream of becoming a business owner came to fruition, and the journey of Simply Events began! My background of human resources and planning company and corporate events, in addition to planning a variety of events since I was a teenager, rooted in me the love for planning experiences that serve a purpose and value others.
The idea to begin my own wedding and event planning business became very real after planning my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding almost ten years ago. I loved every aspect of gathering information and pricing, going along on vendor appointments, developing a timeline, finding just the right venue and managing the day. I officially incorporated the business in January of 2010, and spent many hours studying, planning and networking. Then in 2011- my very first wedding gig happened! Looking back on that first wedding, I laugh because I had no assistant and it was just a few days after a major flood in the area. Trees were down, roads were closed, and the caterer’s kitchen was flooded! We all wondered if we could pull this thing off – but pull it off, we did. All the vendors worked together to make it a beautiful day for the bride and groom! The couple was happy, the day was perfect, and I knew then that I made the right decision to begin this journey.
Fast forward eight years, and I have an amazing team of lead coordinators and assistants that have bought into the vision of Simply Events and why we exist. We have grown the business every year, adding more events than the year before and moved into new office space (outside of my home office) last year! I am excited about what might be ahead in 2018 and also look back on the last several years of learning, meeting incredible clients, venues and vendors, and I am thankful. Thankful to my husband, family and friends who have cheered me on every step of the way, and for all those who continue to allow us to serve by planning memorable and exceptional events!
