Meet a Wedding Vendor in Newberry, FL: TravelBash (1)

Today’s wedding vendor interview is with Courtnie Nichols, Owner & Founder of TravelBash based in Newberry, FL! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I am a coach’s wife and mama to a four-legged baby, Zoe. TravelBash was formed on the premise of inspiring people to celebrate more through travel. For me, travel is about escaping the daily routine and chasing the horizon that creates adventure, romance, discovery, and growth. It’s about loving the people we’re with and diving headfirst into everything the world has to offer. Travel is about becoming our best selves and using every last vacation day. I now get to plan extraordinary events and out of this world experiences for clients that are just as travel-obsessed as I am. I have lived and explored all over the US and Europe but currently live in Gainesville, Florida. When I am not boarding a plane or strolling the Caribbean, you can find me somewhere between college hoops and happy hour.

Today’s wedding planner interview is with Bettina Benizri, Owner and Head Planner of Busy Bee’s Events, based in Miami, Florida! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

My name is Bettina and I am the owner of Busy Bee’s Events. A little bit about myself is that I once upon a time thought I was going to be the next millennial Ally Mcbeal of the big and bad New York City but everything changed the moment I volunteered to plan an event for my association. I always had a knack for planning, even during my pre-law years. My dad was always a planner in the family and he and I would always bond over planning our day in our leather bound planners (back before Iphones). Of course after starting in this industry, I quickly realized that becoming an event planner means so much more than just planning. I’ve become a person’s event budget analyst, mediator, negotiator, venue agent, and even sometimes a friend.
