Meet the Team: Morgan, Associate Coordinator
Our team at Uptown Events is growing, and we want to introduce you to our newest coordinator, Morgan. We think she’s really great, and know that you’ll think so too; read below to get to know her a little better…
- How did you get into wedding planning?
I have loved event planning for as long as I can remember, and in high school, I had the opportunity to express it. Through proms, baby showers, and birthday parties I started to grow my knowledge and consider developing a career in it. My dad gave me the amazing opportunity to plan his wedding the summer after I graduated from high school, and I have been hooked ever since. I love weddings in particular because they are such a beautiful moment of joy and excitement of which I get to be a part.
- What is your favorite wedding trend at the moment?
Currently, I am loving the neutral mismatched bridesmaid dresses. I think it’s really important that the bridesmaids feel comfortable and pretty in what they are wearing, and I think the different styles allow for them to pick what best flatters them.
- What is your current favorite color combination?
I absolutely love gold, but my favorite color combination is white and gold. For weddings, I think it’s nice when the groom is represented. So, if you have pinks, maybe accent them with a calmer or more “masculine” color to keep it from looking too much like a bridal shower.
- If you weren’t a wedding planner, what would you be?
I would be an elementary teacher. I have a heart for small children, and I can have a pretty patient side when I want to! I find so much inspiration from talking and interacting with kids. Plus, their blunt honesty is hilarious and refreshing.
- What are your hobbies/non-work-related activities?
I am a major TV buff. I love coming home and watching the latest recording of an overly dramatic TV show. I also like playing with my puppy, eating queso, and shopping the clearance racks.
- If you could go anywhere in the world,
where would you go?
I would love to go to Bora Bora. Because of the distance, it’s not easy to take a trip to but it is absolutely breath taking!
- Who is your role model?
I have a few role models for different aspects of my life. However, I really look up to Jessica Alba. She founded the Honest Company when she saw a need for organic and safe products in the baby and cleaning industries. She has become very successful through the company’s ethical practices and products. I admire her bravery to start a company and her ability to come up with something new at a price all people can afford.
