Table 6 Productions founder and Colorado wedding planner, Heather Allen moved to Colorado from Florida after graduating with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. After realizing that getting her own show on E! was going to be harder than she thought, she switched gears and devoted 7 years of her life to the advertising world working with large Automotive brands like Ford and Toyota. Through this endeavor she realized that it wasn’t the Corporate AMEX or endless expense account that she loved most, but instead it was the planning of large events for her high profile Automotive clients. After planning her own wedding, she realized the wedding industry had a need for a modern day planner that focused on event design as well as making sure the event was personalized to the couple. Heather, and her best friend from college, Shannon, entered the market in 2004 as vivacious trendsetters.
Heather is an anomaly! She is known for creating the trend, not following it. She is a type A right-brained leader. She is known for “dreaming” up her next design concept (literally).
