Andy + Sarah’s queer family wedding at Apple Blossom Resort was all the best things about a wedding – bringing best friends together and lots and lots of love. It was a weekend-long reunion for all of their friends and family in addition to a celebration of their love and commitment.
The event industry is continually evolving, and choosing an event planner can seem overwhelming at first. The demand for highly skilled and creative event planners is increasing every day, and with it, the need for qualified staff: agents who give their all for the success of the projects they manage and which even go beyond their objectives.
An event planner takes care of a wide range of functions, from planning and logistics up to event communication campaigns. The event planner must always be present to ensure that everything is in place down to the smallest detail to guarantee the proper preparation and execution of your event.
It’s time for our final installment of Meet your Coordinator! Next up, our fearless leader and founder, Elizabeth Tulipana! As you may already know, Elizabeth started Anticipation Events in2009 and since then, she’s become a force in the event industry. You can read countless articles about how and why she started Anticipation Events on our hoopla page, but here we get to know her a little better and what makes her one of the best wedding planners out there (if we do say so ourselves).
Those of you who’ve worked with us over the past few years probably met our sweet, hardworking assistant (or intern!) named Journey. Well, we loved Journey so much that after she interned with us in 2016, we couldn’t let her go. So, she’s been assisting on weddings since, got a TON of event planning experience on her own and now she’s a badass coordinator for Team AE. And trust us, she’s AMAZING. She really knows how to get it done (but always with a smile on her face!)
Just thinking about Brian + Ivan’s Chicago-themed wedding makes us smile. Brian + Ivan hired us two years ago, so to say we couldn’t wait is a major understatement. We absolutely adore these two and their sweet, emotional, jam-packed fun, dance party crazy wedding!
