Tammy, tell us how A Night To Remember was born.
'Well, it wasn't overnight. I've been involved with weddings in the West Texas area since 1990. After acquiring my Business Management Degree at Texas Tech I became co-owner of Music to the Maxx wedding DJ & entertainment service. For the next several years, I began to notice at wedding after wedding that no one was truly in charge or really knew what was going on. Brides were stressed…chaos was the norm…and moms were pulling their hair out."
"As my husband and I were attending National Wedding Conferences year after year, I began to see the tremendous need for a true, professional Wedding Planner in the West Texas area. This led to my Wedding Planner Certification in 2008 through Weddings Beautiful Worldwide. And that's when my passion became real with A Night to Remember."
"And then something absolutely incredible happened in 2010. The birth of Showcase Productions when my husband and I became the new owners of the annual January Bridal Showcase. I couldn't have imagined how important these wedding contacts would be to A Night To Remember's success."
You seem really passionate about weddings.
"Let's put it this way. It's because their wedding day is the happiest day of their lives up to that point. Honestly, when I witness a bride and groom exchange vows in front of God and family it affirms exactly what I know...this is my true calling."
Can you imagine yourself doing something besides weddings and events?
"I pray I never have to. I am absolutely blessed to be able to spend 7 days a week doing what I love best…taking care of brides! But we do make time to do our small part in the local community."
"Serving as Chamber Ambassadors, you can catch us at ribbon cuttings and many other activities sponsored by The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce. Upon invitation, I recently joined a fabulous association called Women's Executive Forum. I'm also on the Board of Directors for The Morris Safe House...never too busy to help the fur babies."
"Through the years, I've been chosen as an elected rep to various Executive Offices as well as the Board of Directors for the Bridal Service Associates (now West Texas Bridal).
I can't wait to meet you!!
