What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

I did not have a wedding planner so I did most of it myself. Pinterest and Etsy were huge in helping me plan my wedding. My older sister and now sister-in-law were also a huge inspiration and help since they had both recently gotten married before me. I decided to get a day of coordinator last minute and let me tell you, it was the BEST DECISION I made! I seriously would have been lost without Christina Harris with Swanky Soiree Events. She saved the day in so many ways!

With a back ground in Interior Design, Fashion Design,  and Graphic Design, I bring a passion for design and all things beautiful to create the most swanky events. I moved to Sarasota in 2007 to attend Ringling College of Art & Design where I obtained my bachelors degree in Interior Design. Over the past few years I have worked in the Interior Design industry, for a large Retail company designing women’s apparel and branding as well as in the hospitality industry. I fell in love with event planning after planning friend’s weddings and parties as well as working for a catering company. My eye for design, attention to detail, creativity and organizational skills will keep your event on track and exactly the way you envisioned it. Swanky Soiree’s mission is to first provide you with the most creative, unique,  and personalized event you could imagine.

Facts:

Favorite Place to Vacation: I love the Keys, bicycling, snorkeling, paddle boarding the beach and the delicious restaurants.

Sweet Tooth: Anything covered in chocolate really. My weakness is Ice cream (specifically Mint) and cake.

Favorite Indulgence: A full day of shopping followed by a massage

Starbucks Order: Grande Skinny Vanilla Latte with Cinnamon

City Crush: Paris

When I am not working I am : Boxing, at the Gym, paddle boarding, boating, walking my dogs or at Hobby Lobby for countless hours. Its a problem, I know..

Favorite Holiday: Christmas. I love having all of the family together

Pets: 4 dogs, yes I am that crazy dog person. 3 of them are rescues.

Favorite Wedding Gown Designer: Haley Paige

Favorite part of a wedding day: The First Look between the couple and the first look of the venue. I just love the reactions.

Favorite part of a event: When the Bride & Groom walks in to the venue. All of the long hours are worth it!

If I wasn’t a event planner I would be: A Interior Designer

I was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on October 30, 1989, the middle child of 3 daughters. When I was 6, my family picked up and moved to Florida to start a much warmer lifestyle! I am a mother to a lovely little boy and to be married in December 2017!
I love being creative and working with people – what better job to have than to make couple’s dream day come true?! What started out as an extra pair of hands for Swanky Soiree every couple of weekends, turned into a full time passion! What I do doesn’t feel like work because of how much I enjoy the daily demands of this job. I am so lucky to be able to say that!
Fun Fact:
I cry every wedding we coordinate! Especially during the father/daughter dance!
