BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
Attention 2 Detail Events & DecorLeesburg, Georgia
ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:Attention 2 Details Events & Decor is an Albany / Leesburg, Georgia based boutique company specializing in full-service planning and event design. We craft luxe celebrations for savvy clients who crave to go beyond what’s familiar and expected for their special event. Our clearly-defined planning process allows our clients to enjoy the journey and let go of feeling overwhelmed and stressed.
We have a passion for creativity and believe we are in the business of helping people create memories because there is always something to celebrate -- from a wedding, a social event, or a just because date night. We love what we do because anything worth doing requires your very best! We take great pride by dedicating over the top service to each event as if it were our very own.
THE STORY:My niche for event planning began while in college as a resident assistant (RA) planning events for students on campus, at work and for family members. I was mostly planning events and making gifts (i.e. diaper cakes, door wreaths) as a hobby because it was something I loved to do. After graduating from college, I still had my hands in event planning and customary gifts, but did not consider starting a business until years later.
As time went on, I was doing more planned events and decorating for family and friends, so I took a huge leap of faith and in 2015, decided to officially start my own event planning and design company. My enjoyment is to see the smiles and happiness of our clients as we take part and share in creating their memories. Our goal is to create a stress-free experience, for we understand the importance of paying attention to details and want to ensure that our clients’ experience is their own unique, yet special, moment.
