When you need someone to pull all the little details together and be calm and cool on your big day, bringing in a professional is a great idea. Read about this week’s profile and how she can help create moments you will treasure for a lifetime.
Name: Wendy Williams-Barkhouse
Company: Barkhouse Weddings & Events
Sum up what you do in 5 words: Plan, Organize, Make Things Pretty
The one thing you couldn’t live without on event day: My Cell Phone and Charger….how did we do it with two way radios?
One piece of advice for your clients: Take a full group photo of everyone after the ceremony, trust me you will treasure that picture that has every single person you love in one place.
Favorite trend: I am not one to follow trends, I feel that each wedding should reflect the couple and not pinterest; but I am really loving the King Table at the moment instead of the traditional head table. I love that everyone in the bridal party can talk to each other and you are surrounded by your guest tables and everyone you love.
Favorite event moment (big or small): I am a sucker for the first dance, I usually tear up a little at every wedding.
Interesting little known fact about yourself: I started my career as a Social Worker but found I enjoyed planning my agencies fundraising events more, so here I am.
