DOMINIQUE CHEEK | EVENT PLANNER

Background: Dominique Cheek is currently pursuing a degree in Strategic Communications , and is able to take everything she already knows, as well as everything she is learning, and apply it to every event she takes on. Her background in theatre is a plus, too! As an actress and a seasoned stage manager, every event is a grand production from start to finish! 

What She Loves About Events: Honestly, while I love putting the pieces together, I love the outcome the most. And not just the final result of the event itself, but the way that it impacts the client. The love on a couples face during their first dance, or the joy of a child in awe of his or her birthday decor - it's why I do what I do! I love that events create lifetime memories from the moments that we map out. Watching it all unfold makes weeks of planning seem like they went by all too fast. 

Advice for Clients: Write things down! Those passing thoughts about your event - no matter how crazy they may seem - write them down or type them up! No need to risk forgetting what could make your event perfect!

Motto: "While you are alive, collect moments not things, earn respect not money, and enjoy love not luxuries"_ Aarti Khurana
