Meet the Amazáe Events Team!

The last few weeks we’ve been sharing updates to our Instagram page to introduce you to our hardworking and talented team members.

In case you missed them, or just can’t get enough, we thought we’d share them here as well!

So without any further ado, here are the wonderful women of Amazáe Events (in alphabetical order):

Meet Amy!

Amy, event team memberThis talented woman graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. For several years, she worked in tax and general accounting, wealth management and finance, but none of these positions fulfilled her. It was Amy’s dream growing up to become a wedding & event coordinator, and after her own wedding, she decided to turn her dream into a reality. Amy’s background in finance has helped her to apply the same highly detail-oriented, organized and time-sensitive working style to her role as an Event Production Associate. Being a part of someone’s magical day is a privilege she does not take lightly and wants each client to walk away feeling taken care of, valued, and loved.

Next up is Caitlin!

She works closely with all Amazáe Events clients and her exceptional client relations keep each step of the process fresh and fun while bringing your dream events to life. When she’s not sipping Champagne at a wine bar, you’ll find her hanging around with family, friends and her two nephews.

Meet Christina!

Having majored in the arts, Christina loves working for Amazae because she gets to help bring art to life.
