While our couples and their guests only see the perfectly aligned cross-back chairs and folded napkins with beautiful menus tucked in, there are a few hardworking ladies doing everything they can behind the scenes to make your dream day a reality. For the 2018 season, we welcomed three new ladies into our team to help make the wedding day go off without a hitch – and we are so lucky to have them!
Alex began working with the team in July of 2017. We quickly realized Alex was a perfect fit for our fun little family. With a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, and a major in Hospitality, her passion for Event Planning has always been very natural. She is originally from Chicago but was raised in Traverse City. Growing up there created her love for being near or on the water. That is definitely her happy place! She enjoys spending time with her boyfriend of 4 years, Calvin, and traveling the globe. She loves to create, perfect, and pay attention to Every Little Detail of each event! She hopes to help relieve the stress you may have about your wedding day and cannot wait to assist in making your day even more special and more flawless than imaginable.
Brooke is just 19 years young and grew up in Rockford, MI. She is currently living in the fabulous city of Grand Rapids and in school studying business. You can find Brooke sitting at your local coffee shop sipping a cup of coffee (preferably a vanilla iced latte), on the golf course, or listening to music. She is the happiest in the summer when she is on one of the many beautiful beaches Michigan has to offer. There will always be a smile on her face if the sun is shining and she is surrounded by her wonderful (but equally crazy) family and friends. She can’t wait to be a part of your wedding day and make it everything you’ve ever dreamed it would be.
Paige is an almost 22-year-old and is new to the team this summer! She is a fourth year at Central Michigan University. (Fire up chips!) Paige is currently studying Recreation, Parks & Leisure Services, with a focus on Recreation & Event Management. She has a dog named Rocky & she is pretty obsessed with him. Paige started eating vegetarian in February and doesn’t see herself going back! In July she is traveling to Alaska for a family vacation for a week! Paige talks to her Papa every day and they have made it a habit to text every morning and every night. She doesn’t think she would survive without her planner and dry erase calendar on her wall. She is super excited to be working under Alyse, Lynette & Alex to learn more about the industry and build a path for her future after college. That’s a little bit about Paige!
Rachel is a 22-year-old Grand Ledge High School Alum. She recently graduated from Lansing Community College with a General Associates degree. Rachel is continuing her education journey at Michigan State University to pursue a Bachelor of Communications with a public relations minor and a business focus. Her past employment at Lansing Community College in the Academic and Career Pathways has made her a perfect fit. Rachel is also involved with the Capital Area Humane Society where she volunteered and was the Event Intern and helped plan their biggest event of the year, the Fur Ball. When Rachel is not working or in class she loves to be outdoors. She loves hiking and taking her dog Gracie for walks. She also loves slacklining and playing soccer. She enjoys spending time with her friends and family. Rachel also is a fan of the arts; she loves attending art and music festivals, plays and theater productions. Rachel also loves to travel and learning about other cultures. Rachel is passionate about helping others whether it is helping students complete their academic goal or helping a bride on the biggest day of her life.
We are so thankful these three ladies have joined our team this summer. They each bring something unique and special and have already made an impact on our couples behind the scenes as well as during wedding days!
