Meet the Team - Alison McPherson {Lead Coordinator}

We are excited for you to meet
Alison McPherson
{Lead Coordinator}

  

Alison started with Confetti Events in 2010 and 
moved up from intern to Lead Coordinator. 
She recently had an amazing wedding of her own!

How did you get started with Confetti Events?
I started interning for Confetti back in 2010 while in my final semester in the UF Hospitality and Event Management degree. Kaylea introduced me to the previous owner, Jamie, and we would come home from Gainesville on the crazy busy wedding weekends to learn how it's done! Once I graduated I began taking on Brides of my own and have grown into the role I am in today with Confetti! 

What is your favorite part about event planning?
I think one of my favorite parts about event planning is seeing all the seemingly unimaginable ideas and dreams on paper, in diagrams, on the timeline etc. ALL come together in the end as a success. 

What are 5 things you couldn't do your job without?
Passion
Patience
Timeline
Emergency Kit
Comfortable Shoes

What is your most memorable event?
My most memorable event was Erin and David's November 16, 2014 Wedding in Tampa FL. It was so memorable not only because of all of the amazing details but because it felt like they brought me into their family to plan their wedding and the relationship and trust we built made the event that much better. 

What is your personal style?
I am still trying to figure that out as I plan my own wedding this Fall :) But I like to keep it simple yet unique and make sure everyone has a fun environment. 

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The most rewarding aspect of my job is to see the joy that is expressed on a wedding day after the vows have been said or when someone is blowing out their birthday candles at their birthday party we planned. All of the minor stresses and things along the way mean nothing when you experience

Sweet Praise

We are so honored to have received
this SWEET PRAISE from
some of our past weddings!

Ashley - September 27, 2014 - Oxford Exchange
Kaylea Frantzis, Senior Coordinator

"Hiring Kaylea from Confetti Events was probably the best decision I made for my wedding! From day one, Kaylea was dedicated, organized, in touch and supportive during the stressful times! She helped me reach my budget, worked with local vendors, fully understood and helped me execute the aesthetic and feel of our day, she went above and beyond all my expectations in every way. (She even helped me look for my wedding earrings, which was definitely not in the job description!) On our wedding day, I was able to relax and be fully present, as I knew Kaylea had everything under control, from the important logistics, such as the timeline, to the smallest details that were unique to our wedding. She was always on top of it and such a joy to work with! I couldn't imagine having spent this season working with anyone else! I promise, if you hire Kaylea, you will be blown away and so thankful that you hired someone this talented and wonderful to be a part of such an important, special event in your life!"

Sarah - October 26, 2014 - St. Petersburg Beach
Theresa Mezzari, Lead Coordinator

"Theresa and the entire Confetti Events team were absolutely amazing. We are so glad we chose to work with Theresa. She was so organized and so sweet the entire time. I never felt stressed at all throughout our entire engagement and wedding planning because I knew Theresa would send me everything I needed to do for that month! She was always on it. The wedding day was also smooth sailing. Everything went off perfect. I definitely recommend using Theresa with Confetti Events. You will love her (and all the ladies at CE)!"

Support Brides Against Breast Cancer with Confetti Events!

Come support this great cause with us:
Brides Against Breast Cancer
- January 9 + 10, 2015 -

Say “I DO” to Brides Against Breast Cancer

Brides Against Breast Cancer™  is an organization serving  a very “pink” purpose – their gown sales fund programs and services that are free to cancer patients and their families.  BABC will be headed to Tampa Bay January 9th and 10th at the Safety Harbor Resort!

Through its “Original Nationwide Tour of Gowns” bridal shows, Brides Against Breast Cancer plans to unveil more than 100 shows in 2014.  In cities nationwide, with an average offering of nearly 600 new or gently worn bridal dresses, brides-to-be will find their dream gown at a greatly reduced cost.  BABC sells new and gently used designer gowns, including all designer brands imaginable.   We also have the perfect bridal accessories -- including Tiaras, veils and shoes, all available for purchase.  

“Wedding gown sales are an important fundraising program for Brides Against Breast Cancer.  Our organization makes it possible for future brides around the country to purchase wedding gowns at dramatic savings, and give back,” said Amy Paulishak, VP Business Development, Brides Against Breast Cancer.   “Most gown prices range from $75 to $799, including beautiful new name brand and designer gowns valued up to $3,000. We also offer layaway.”Another benefit of attending the event is the opportunity to meet with local wedding vendors. Brides Against Breast Cancer brings in a limited amount of local vendors to exhibit, and many will have exciting giveaways for you and your friends. 

Here’s how you can help:
·      If you’d like to help Brides Against Breast Cancer fulfill their mission, there are several ways to get involved. They are accepting donations of contemporary gown styles, slips and veils dating from 2009 to current.
