Owner / Founder
I am a 4th generation New Orleanian. I began my career in the hotel, restaurant and event planning industry in 1989. My hotel and catering experience has tremendously enhanced my knowledge of the important components of great food, fine wines, impeccable service, amazing ambiences and seamless execution of events. In 2001, I decided to leave my position as Director of Catering and Marketing at a French Quarter Boutique Hotel to further develop Unique Weddings in New Orleans. While in the hotel industry I saw the same events play out almost every weekend. My love for our city and hospitality industry made me realize I wanted to broaden my exposure to other places New Orleans had to offer and I wanted to be able to express my enthusiasm for fashion, design and create amazing and memorable events utilizing my unique creative talents to create one-of-a-kind luxury events weekend after weekend.
As a mother, there is nothing I cherish more than my husband and our children. My company grew at a very rapid pace and at times my personal life seemed to be non-existent. One day in Brittani’s early teenage years, I asked her if she wanted to come to work with me. We both quickly realized she had a natural passion for event planning. As a result she became a regular on my team and through the years her loyal commitment and work ethic became obvious that one day she would follow in my foot-steps. My continued passion for what I do has only grown being able to work so closely with my daughter, my best friend and my business partner. We are able to support each other and each other clients by allowing them access to both of us and knowing that our morals and ethics are the same. You are going to get the same level of respect and devotion from the both us. Sometime that means sending Brittani a half legible text, and she knows exactly what it means (as most say “osmosis”), to get you an answer to your time sensitive question.
Over the past years as our business has grown so has our family. In 2013 our family was blessed with a beautiful granddaughter Isabelle from my son Devin and in 2014 Brittani and her husband Adam blessed us with the most adorable grandson Aydian. On my days of I am a devoted wife to my wonderful husband of 23 years, Johnny, care taker of my many cats and a self-proclaimed chef cooking Wednesday and Sunday family dinners. Doing something you love isn’t’ a job it’s a blessing.
