Q: How and when did you get started in this business?
A: We started in 1995 as Eventures Party Rentals…with two folding tables. We have grown into the largest rental and event planning company in the region. We’ve always believed in customer service and making our client’s dreams come true. This is the foundation that has helped grow us to where we are today.
Q: Tell about some of the memorable events you’ve done?
A: We handle so many of the events in throughout the region, they are all memorable! We have done several weddings with 600-plus guests. Celebrity weddings and events are always a challenge, but they are really no different than anyone else’s wedding or event. One highlight of our career was doing an event and meeting, Martha Stewart.
Q: How many events do you organize each year?
A: We play a part in more than 1,500 events a year…anything from providing rentals to planning and handling the entire event.
Q: What makes a good party a great one?
A: The details make a good party a great one. Small details add up. A special ribbon tied on the napkins or photos of the bride and groom placed on guest tables can add a memory that guests will talk about later.
Q: What kind of trends have changed with brides/wedding planning these days?
A: Many of my brides tend to go for more of the clean lines and modern items now. We use lots of furniture and specialty lighting now, which are items that weren’t used that often in past.
Q: Do you prefer simple or outrageously grand parties?
A: Grand! Grand! Grand!
Q: Any Advice for Hosting A Small Cocktail Party With Friends?
A: You don’t have to break the bank to have any party. I like to do at least one thing that’s so over-the-top that guests will talk about long after the party is over.
