About Brittney


Looking back, I’ve always enjoyed event planning. Even as a kid I was always super excited for big family dinners, the holidays, and my birthday. When my Mom gave me the green light to have a sleepover for my 10th birthday, I IMMEDIATELY started hand-making the invitations.

I first realized that I had a knack for hosting and coordinating events when my friend got pregnant with her first baby back in 2009. Not only was I over the moon about her new arrival, but I was also excited to plan the perfect shower for her and her husband. Over the next few years, I hosted/planned several events for family and friends without ever noticing that I had a true passion for it.

In 2015, after graduating from law school, I finally took the leap to establish Events By Brittney. After spending three years tied down to textbooks, I was ready to spend my free time doing something that made me truly happy. I was apprehensive in the beginning; but after realizing I was constantly looking for a reason to have an event and people were always asking for my assistance, I began to see this as a possible business opportunity. I have not looked back since!

I value my faith more than anything. I am a true crime fanatic. In my free time, you can find me caught up in a true crime podcast, book, documentary, or on Google Flights. Like a true Pisces, daydreaming is my hobby, mainly about my next travel destination. If it involves glitter or the color purple count me in! I’m always counting down to the next chance I’ll get to spend time with my family and friends. I am also a big believer in giving back and enjoy contributing to my community. Lastly, go Dallas Cowboys!

As a business owner, I pride myself on my customer service and the ability to implement my client’s vision. I’m like a mixture between your wedding project manager and your BFF. Organization and attention to detail are my specialties! I can’t wait to help you plan your perfect day.

Our experiences teach us who we are. They reveal our commonalities with each other, give us humor, allow us to feel sadness and most of all, make us human. Our experiences are our best teachers and friends. Our experiences make up the pages of our lives, filling the chapters with the different trends, styles and, subsequently, creating the lifestyles we ultimately find ourselves living.

Like many, I enjoy life and the experiences that it affords and coupled with my love for writing, I began documenting and sharing my own experiences in the hope of connecting, inspiring and educating. I found myself writing about hustle culture and howto beat theSunday blues. I wrote aChristmas gift guide for divorced/remarried parentsand how tocreate stress-free goals for2019.

 

Through this exploratory writing, I flourished and grew. I learned so much more about the world around me and was honored to be able to share life experiences, modern culture, reflections on trends, and suggestions for better living.

And I’m just getting started.  Let me write for you. 

 

You need content and I love writing. In addition to my passion for the written word, I have a background and work in the web design industry. I have seen over 250 websites to launch and know what engages the end-user. This is a partnership made in heaven.Connectwith me, share your content needs/ideas, and let create relevant, engaging content for you. I look forward to hearing from you!

 

Kindest regards,
Stormy S.
