Friendor Friday Spotlight: The Elegant Barn
We are fortunate to have an amazing tribe of vendors that we work with to create dream weddings for our clients. Every other Friday we will spotlight one of our vendor friends, or friendors. These amazing artists are in the trenches with us. They battle deadlines, work in the blaring sun, walk an average of ten miles on event days and more. We do this because we all love making people’s dreams come true. When you need of a photographer, caterer, florist, planner, venue, videographer, etc. we hope you will entrust one of our amazing friendors. We think they are rather spectacular!
What is your name and the name of your business? My name is Andrea and I am the Account Manager & Event Coordinator at the Elegant Barn, an Event Venue in Gilbert, Arizona!
How long have you been in business? The Elegant Barn opened in February 2013, so in 2018 we will be celebrating 5 amazing years!
What is your favorite part of your job? My favorite part of my job is organizing each event. I love working with each couple, meeting with them, helping them find the best vendors from our list that match what they are looking for, what fits their budget, their style & making sure their day runs smooth so they can enjoy every single moment.
“Celebrate Your Unique Love”
What is your favorite par of the wedding industry? My favorite part of the wedding industry is seeing family & friends come together to celebrate each couple’s unique love. Every couple is different, every background is different, ever family is different, but I love seeing one day where everyone supports them & is a part of sealing their commitment to one another.
What is your favorite memory being in business? My favorite memories are made by working with the staff & vendors at the Elegant Barn. I have been at the Barn for about 4 years and everyone that I work with is family. We have fun with each event, learn from each event, and all work together to make sure each event is exactly how the couple pictures it. We have had some stressful times, heartwarming times, & some pretty hilarious times. But together it feels like home and we hope that each couple that books with us, feels that connection and comfort as well.
Is there anything new or on the horizon for you? We have an Open House on Tuesday, September 12th from 5-8 pm! We are going to set up the barn with a clean & modern farmhouse look. It will showcase a lot of the rentals we have to offer to each couple who books with us. We hope 2018 will bring in some changes to the Venue as well! You will have to follow us on Social Media to make sure you find out what those changes might be!
We look forward to meeting you!
