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.
