What: Wedding & Reception
As the owner of Offbeat Occasions, I’m fortunate to have friends and family who believe in my dream of pursuing a successful, event planning business. Jess (Morrow) Mastrean is one of those friends. For her May 18 wedding, Jess asked me to be a bridesmaid. I was honored to fill that role and blessed by her allowing me to help with much more.
As Jess and Anthony (her then fiancé) were planning their wedding, I was completing my course work to earn my Certificate in International Wedding & Event Planning. One month before they said “I do,” I earned my Certificate and opened Offbeat Occasions for business. Through the entire process, Jess gave me practice by asking questions and allowing me to provide input as she planned. It was so helpful!
Utilizing my networking skills, sharing insider tips, creating timelines, and coordinating day-of were just a few techniques I was fortunate to use during Jess and Anthony’s wedding. Their faith in me, and their encouragement, gave me the boost to let Offbeat Occasions soar. I can’t thank them enough!
