Beyond Ordinary, Extraordinary

Profile's Mission

My wedding day was the best day of my life despite the inadequacies of the wedding vendors involved. I want your wedding day to be the best day of your life in part because of Profile Event Center (PEC).

 

Creating a special experience for our clients and their guests was my goal from day one. Coming into the industry from a non-event background was an advantage. PEC was created to be what a wedding and event venue should be rather than following the path of others.

Getting married is a series of firsts. A lot of these firsts can be stressful. The first hiring of a coordinator, florist, DJ, caterer, cake vendor, decorator, etc. I want PEC to take the responsibility for all of these firsts so you can completely enjoy your first hours as a married couple.

 

The PEC business model seamlessly produces your most important day at an unparalleled value. Thanks to my incredible staff, my vision was realized…Beyond Ordinary, Extraordinary.

We have four amazing coordinators that are here to assist you the entire way! Once booked, your coordinator will help you plan all the details of your wedding, cater to your menu wishes during a food tasting, and help finalize all your planning with you! They are also on-site for your event to ensure a perfect day!

"Profile was amazing to work with! From the first meeting to our last song! I would highly recommend working with Sara! She is sweet, was always respectful of our needs and wants, and was there every step of the way the day of. The atmosphere was perfect, the lighting and sound was on point, and the food and service was perfect! We received many compliments on our wedding and a lot of the thanks goes to Profile and their staff."

What drove you to become an event coordinator? My love and passion for event planning is something that evolved as I gained experience in different sectors of the hospitality industry. Some of my experiences include: culinary classes, kitchen internships, serving, bartending, working as a Student Activities Coordinator, and being a General Manager at a restaurant. While managing the restaurant I got the opportunity to assist with growing the offsite catering side of the business. As I focused on that,  I realized that I had a true passion for events. I didn’t want to only handle the food; I wanted to run the show! I decided it was time to follow that passion and use all the experiences I had to excel as an Event Coordinator.

Favorite part of a wedding? It’s hard to pick just one favorite part of a wedding!  If I can only pick one, it would be watching their vision come to life and seeing the couple view the completed room for the first time!

What is your favorite wedding trend at the moment? I love when couples do an anniversary dance and showcase the longest married couple. Wedding are all about love and that dance is the perfect opportunity to celebrate love and ask the happy couple what their secret is!

Do you still cry at weddings? I do! I don’t think that will ever change!

How many times have you been told you are basically  J. Lo from the movie The Wedding Planner? I love the movie The Wedding Planner! I've definitely been told I’m just like J. Lo!  When people hear that I work as an event coordinator, there is always lots of discussion and questions about it! I lost count on how many times, I’ve been told that I have their dream job!

What drove you to become an event coordinator? Towards the end of high school, when they are pushing you to decide the rest of your life choices on the spot, I was watching a TV show where this couple was getting married. I watched this Bride walk through a beautiful venue, saw the camera pan over centerpieces and decor, glanced past family members smiling through tears, and listened to this exchange of love. I wanted to be a part of that extraordinary moment.

Favorite part of a wedding? The tiny personal moments: A Bride singing along to her first dance song, the look a Bride and Groom share right before they are pronounced husband and wife, an inside joke shared during speeches, pictures lining the hallway shelf telling a story. 

Favorite wedding trend at the moment? Greenery! Candles! Blush colors! Flower Grandmas! Donut towers!

Do you still cry at weddings? Oh yeah. It is bad. 

How many times have you been told you are basically  J. Lo from the movie The Wedding Planner? *Places headset on* "May you have enough happiness to keep you sweet, enough trials to keep you strong, enough hope to keep you happy, enough friends to give you comfort, and enough determination to make each day a better day then yesterday." SO A LOT.

"We cannot thank you enough for EVERYTHING that was put into making Sunday the best day of our lives. We were just blown away with PEC. Bailey, thank you for truly being amazing at your job. You never made me feel like I was asking too many questions, or micromanaging. You are so accommodating and kind! It was a beautiful night!"

I fell in love with this venue the minute I walked through the doors. It was perfect for my husband and I. The staff was wonderful and our wedding coordinator Anne was amazing! All of our guests could not stop talking about how gorgeous the venue was and how good the food was. We are so thankful! Thank you profile event center! ❤️

- Shoua

What drove you to become an event coordinator? I have always been the planner in my family. Everything from coordinating events between neighbors to vacations and family functions. While I was serving in the Army and across the country, I noticed I was more involved with the planning side of things. When I think of weddings, there are five words that come to mind: Unique, romantic, intimate, enchanting, but most of all, unforgettable. When my skills in organization and time management are coupled with my desire to plan, there isn’t anything I can’t accomplish when I set my mind to it.

Favorite part of a wedding? First look photos! I know it’s not as traditional as waiting to see one another for the first time when you are walking down the aisle but the wedding day is about the couple coming together as one and celebrating their love for one another. When the couple does a first look, they are able to cherish that special moment with one another and also have time to celebrate their love.

Favorite wedding trend at the moment? My favorite trend right now is romantic and moody floral arrangements. I also really like the look of mix and matched grooms attire with a more fitted and tailored look, along with a pop of floral print.

Do you still cry at weddings? No matter what, I think weddings will always make me cry. Even though every wedding is different, they each hold a near and dear spot in my heart that gets me every time.

How many times have you been told you are basically  J. Lo from the movie The Wedding Planner? That movie is every wedding planners dream and every non wedding planners idea of how wedding planning works. More often than not this movie is referenced to having the dream job and making couples dreams become reality.
