With our busy season starting, we have decided to start up the blog again to show you all the fun things that we have going on here at All Buttoned Up Events! I am McKenzie, and I will be the voice behind the blog this summer. To share a little bit more about me, I joined the All Buttoned Up team in February as a planner, specializing in events at The Ballroom at McKay, after graduating from Grand Valley State University in December with a Bachelors in Hospitality and Tourism Management. I have always loved events, weddings in particular. There is just something about when every little detail comes together to create a beautiful celebration of love! I am truly living my dream working for Kelly at All Buttoned Up Events.
While I’m introducing myself, I think it’s fitting to introduce the rest of our team joining Kelly, Allison, and Alaina for the summer! We have two interns this summer, Lindsay and Megan, as well as an event assistant, Emma, who is doing a mentorship with Kelly this summer. Korie is also coming on this summer as a planner who is specializing in events at The Ballroom at McKay.
Lindsay is a senior at Michigan State University in their school of Hospitality Business and has worked in many areas of Hospitality, but she is excited to learn more about the event side of things with All Buttoned Up this summer!
Megan is a junior at Grand Valley State University studying Hospitality and Tourism Management. Megan's love for weddings sparked early on when she helped plan her mom's wedding and made sure that she didn't forget a single detail!
Emma is a graduate from Baker College with a degree in baking and pastry. After working in the wedding industry as a freelance wedding baker, she discovered her love for the wedding industry as a whole, rather than just baking. She plans to keep baking as a hobby, while turning her career into wedding planning!
Korie graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2017 with a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management. She is currently working with a corporate travel company but has a passion for weddings and has worked in the wedding industry for going on three years. She has joined the All Buttoned Up team this season to continue honing her planing skills and gain as much experience as possible. She loves being able to make people's visions come to life and be a part of others' celebrations.
We are so excited to have our team be growing this year and even more excited for all of our amazing couples to experience the amazing additions we have made to our team. A huge shout out to Kellie Hetler for taking amazing photos of our team! We had so much fun with her, and she made us all look our best!
