A few of my favorite things
Vanilla Coffee Mate
Originally a Florida girl, Heather moved to Colorado after graduating with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. After pursuing her master’s degree and 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 expense account that she loved most, but instead it was the planning of large events for her high-profile 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 entered the wedding market in 2004 as a vivacious trendsetter when wedding planners weren’t even really a thing (except in movies!).
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). Although she possesses all the “standard” qualities of an exceptional planner, her forte’ is definitely event design and the art of negotiation. This is what her clients love about her most (and that she is really fun!). Her ingenious designs and ideas have been featured Nationally by places like The Knot, Bride’s, Martha Stewart, Inside Weddings, Carats & Cake, Destination I Do, Reign, Style Me Pretty, and Grace Ormonde (to name a few). Heather’s reputation in the wedding industry has earned her some of the most prestigious accolades such as Event Solutions “Event Planner of the Year” and being inducted into The Knot’s “Hall of Fame” for being voted in the “Best Of” Wedding Planners for 12 years in a row.
