When it comes to weddings, our Event Empress is the ruler.
Brittany Attaway joined us as an interim during her senior year of college and fell in love with the event planning world, especially weddings. She uses her creativity to assist clients in bringing their dream wedding to reality. Outside the office, she enjoys spending time with her loving husband Josh, their fur-babies Clark the cat and Henry thegolden-doodle, and is actively involved at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church.
Let's find out even more about our Event Empress with this week's questionnaire...
What is the first thing you do when working with a client, as Event Empress?
I try to make clients understand that events and weddings are so much more than just linens and centerpieces. They can be works of art. Whether you are a non-profit organization, a corporation or a bride, there is a message you should want to convey to your guests. As your event and wedding designer, I can help you figure out what that message is, and help you implement it impeccably through the design and flow of the event.
How does your process unfold?
I love to get the full story from a client – what their goals are for the event, their thoughts and their budget. Then, I take time to piece everything together so I can propose them the very best vision based on their story.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
I look to New York and LA for a lot of my inspiration – from pop-culture to music to fashion and events – and try to catch on to what will be coming to Oklahoma within the next six months to a year. That way I know what I’m proposing to my clients won’t be out of style by the time their event rolls around!
What is your favorite aspect of creating?
Creating something new that’s never been done. I draw my inspiration from the past but always work to put a new twist on it. I never want to do the same thing twice!
How would you describe your perfect wedding?
“Perfect” can take many forms, but to me it starts with a bride who isn’t afraid to take a risk. One that doesn’t just go along with the trends. If she’s willing to open up and let me in as her Stylist and not just her “rental provider”, we can produce a design that is custom to her personality and catered to her wants and needs. Those are the very best and create the perfect outcome!
If you could pick one word to describe one of your weddings, what would it be?
What are your strengths:
Good listener, compassionate, seeing the big picture
What are your weaknesses:
Blue cheese stuffed olives, Real Housewives of Orange County and Beverly Hills
No common sense, not thinking for yourself, settling for mediocrity
Spend a month in Italy and live like a local…I’ve never been very touristy. I just want to eat and explore the culture at my own pace.
Right now…Malachite green
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
What is one habit you have:
I make up songs and tunes for daily tasks…from taking out the trash to completing a proposal. Every day should be a real life musical!
