Top Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner

 Has anyone seen The Wedding Planner starring Jennifer Lopez?! It is one of my favorite movies and while, yes the movie does give a Hollywood spin to our profession, it does give me a great reason to break down why wedding planners are an essential part of the planning process! 

Wedding Planners can help make your ideas come to life. While Pinterest is a great way to compile all of your wedding ideas, a Wedding Planner can come in, take a look at your ideas and help you navigate the best ways to implement them in a classy and elegant way. 

Wedding Planners won't' let you forget what to plan for or who to pay! Adding additional planning meetings, expenses, and to do lists to your already hectic schedule can be overwhelming. A Wedding Planner's job is to help you stay organized through the process and keep you stress free! 

You deserve for everything to be perfect on your big day. It's important to have a professional who can tend to the small details on your wedding day, which allows you to enjoy your day! A Wedding Planner will know what to anticipate and handle it before disaster strikes!

You don't want to spend all of your free time searching for vendors. A Wedding Planner is a fantastic resource for trustworthy, reliable vendors. By investing in a Wedding Planner, you are eliminating the stress of a vendor search! 

Wedding Planning should be enjoyable, not stressful. A Wedding Planner will not only keep you on task, they will also keep you on budget so you can enjoy your engagement period!

My journey to becoming an Event Planner dates back to my childhood, assisting my mother with planning and executing parties at our home and for my dad’s fraternity. I was training to be a professional dancer at the time, so I never thought about being a “Party Planner”, it was just fun for me to help her. After a fabulous and exciting dance career that spanned 20 plus years, I began working as a dance instructor at Arthur Murray Dance Studio in downtown Chicago. Because of my excitement for our studio events and knack for organizing parties, I was soon promoted to Guest Director. This position allowed me to see that Marketing and Event Management was something I enjoyed, and it was then I realized this could be my next career move! I spent the next two years learning as much as I could about the Event Industry, including an internship with Desiree Moore Dent, Owner of Dejanae Events,as well as studying and becoming a Certified Wedding & Event Planner/Designer through Lovegevity’s Wedding Planning Institute. This is how I learned more about the business side of running your own business, which was invaluable information! During this time, I offered my services to family and friends for any event they may have been having to gain as much "real world" experience as possible. In May of 2013, I decided to get my business license and launch Events with Ambiance. It has truly been eye opening that I am now an entrepreneur, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! I am grateful to have family and friends support me, my company has truly become a Family Business!! I am blessed to surround myself with people who are just as passionate about my business as I am; for me, Event Planning is about more than just throwing a great party, it's about creating an unforgettable experience for my clients and their guests!
