I’m a recently married wedding professional living in D.C. while co-owning an Atlanta-based wedding business. Something New for I Do combines our love for both the planning and business side of the industry, as we’re known as wedding PR/marketing experts to vendors and vendor brokers to brides looking to brand their wedding.

Meet a Wedding Planner in Saugerties, NY: Elite Wedding and Event Planning (5)

Today’s wedding planner interview is with Angela Christoforo of Elite Wedding and Event Planning, based in Saugerties, New York! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

Most people are surprised to learn that I was a paralegal for 13 years. My legal career has given me valuable experience, which I use in my planning business. Contract review is an important aspect in planning. Most couples are unsure of what to look for in reviewing contracts and are happy to have someone with legal experience and knowledge of the industry to take care of all of that for them. While I enjoyed my long career as a paralegal I find my passion is in planning and designing beautiful events. When I’m not helping couples design their weddings I put my creativity to use in planning and designing styled shoot. Organization is second nature to me having worked in an office setting for many years so naturally staying organized and keeping things on track I have a knack for.

As a company we want clients to enjoy all the fun aspects of planning and be able to feel confident knowing we can handle all of the stressful and time consuming details for them. It’s a fun and exciting time in their lives and probably one of the most expensive investments they will ever make in planning an event. They should be able to say it was a piece of cake planning and their wedding day was one of the best days of their lives.

Today’s wedding planner interview is with Robyn of Blue Skies Events Nola, based in New Orleans, Louisiana! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

My name is Robyn Sedgebeer and I have been in the Hospitality industry for about 8 years. I started off my career working for the Walt Disney World company in Orlando. I work at the Contemporary Resort and also shadowed a couple weddings at the Wedding Pavilion at the Grand Floridian. When I returned home I started working with a local wedding planner. I worked with that company for about a year and a half and then realized I need to finish school. I graduated with a Hospitality Degree. I then started working with a catering company. I thought to myself to become a great planner one must know all aspects in a wedding. I worked with the catering company for almost 3 years. In September on 2014 I decided it was time to start my own event planning company, so I did just that. I quickly got everything together and before I knew it Blue Skies Events Nola was an LLC. It has been my dream since I was a little girl to be a Wedding Planner and it is excited every day to be living that dream.
