Hey there! My name is Courtney and I am proud to be the newest member of the Sweetchic team as Charlene’s assistant :) I know there is no other place than Sweetchic Events for me to take the plunge into the wedding industry! Here’s a little bit about me….I’m currently a senior at Roosevelt University (I graduate May 4th! ) majoring in Hospitality Management with a concentration in Meeting and Event Planning. Where did my interest for weddings start? I’ve always had this love for weddings, meaning that I had my wedding (and my best friend’s wedding) planned for some time now. But growing up in a teeny town full of corn, corn, and more corn, I wasn’t able to see elaborate weddings and events. What I did see was that I was the only one in school who carried a day planner, I organized and re-organized things way too much, had an attention for detail, and I did have that creative bone in my body. It was my obsession for planning that led me to Roosevelt. I had taken several meeting planning classes, but it wasn’t until my Special Events class that I knew where I belonged. Seeing all the venues, the linens, flowers, food, and lighting…need I go on?
When I’m not at Sweetchic or slaving over homework you can find me: dancing, scrapbooking, Pinning, reading, watching sports, obsessing over something Twilight related, or relaxing with my boyfriend.
It’s already been a privilege assisting Charlene these past few weeks, and I’m super pumped for my first wedding day I’ll be able to assist on!
