HOW CASSIE RENAE EVENTS BEGAN
I remember as a little girl I always enjoyed planning, coordinating and organizing all types of events, but I discovered a passion for the industry during the course of planning my own wedding. Yes, I am one of the cliche' - I planned my wedding and then the idea came to me - I want to do this for a living! Over the 13 months of planning my own wedding, I thoroughly enjoyed myself, every part of it, even when it was stressful.
With the encouragement of family, friends and my amazing husband, Cassie Renae Events, LLC was started in 2011. I spent the first summer broadening my experience in event planning and got to play the role of wedding planner and day of coordinator for a couple weddings and planner for a fundraiser. All of the events were great stepping stones to jump start my vision. After my first wedding as day of coordinator, I knew that I had found my place.
I enjoy getting to know a client, while working closely with them to plan their special day. While working together you will experience professionalism, trust, passion and friendship. It is such a joy to watch a Bride and Groom or host be able to relax and enjoy themselves during their event. To know that I got to play a part in that is such a reward!
MEET CASSIE - OWNER/PLANNER
My background is in apparel merchandising, interior design, marketing and customer service and I find that these elements work well together in the event planning industry. I know that every event is unique and I strive to make every experience wonderful. In 2015, I joined a fabulous team at the Washington State Veterinary Medical Association as their event and program manager. In this position I get to experience the planning and execution of large conferences and small continuing education events.
In the past I volunteered for a non-profit organization, Encompass NW, on their planning committee for their Gala's. This has broadened my skill set and given me a better understanding of a large fundraiser from behind the scenes.
My favorite aspect of being an event planner is the connection I get to make with people and the friendships that are created during the planning process.
In my downtime, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my little dog Dolce, family and friends. I also enjoy shopping, a good book, working on our house and yard, curling up to watch a movie or traveling near and far.
I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you over the course of planning your next event!
