Hi there!! Thank you for checking out Events by Allison! I hope you enjoy getting to know me and what I do... and more importantly, what we can do together for your big day!!
A little about me. I am a.... happy wife, over-the-moon mom, everything crafter, sugar cookie decorator, master movie quoter, proud Michigander, coffee enthusiast, nature (esque) lover, detail obsessor, word inventor, not afraid to make a fool of myself-er, and recovering exclamation point-aholic!!! Sooo that's me!
Why event planning? My path to event planning was by no means a straight line, but it was most definitely a fated destination. With a Bachelor's degree in Child Development and Psychology and a Master's degree in Social Work, I always knew I wanted to be in a helping profession. It was from my experience in that field that I learned while it was rewarding helping others through their difficult times, I was much more equipped to be helpful to others in their more joyful occasions. The idea was born!
My "tester" event was my son's first birthday party! It was then that I fully realized my affinity for event planning. I loved every second of it! From developing the vision to finessing every last detail, I very quickly came to understand where my passion lied... the WOW factor! Creating an event that left a lasting impression on all those involved became my obsession. I began with smaller events (birthday parties, baby showers, etc.) and gradually worked my way up to weddings, where I now know I was meant to be all along!
Whether it's a small, intimate affair or a grand-scale celebration, my goal is for every aspect of the event to have a personal touch and be representative of the individual style and personality of the client, exceeding expectations in every way. Together we will make your event the one to remember!
