Anne Tegerdine | Owner & Lead Planner

My passion for planning parties goes back as long as I can remember. My mother was a natural hostess and growing up by her side I learned the essentials of throwing the perfect party!

This became professional in 2006 while working at Soldier Field (home of the Chicago Bears) as the Event/Game Day Assistant, I was a part of the venue management team (a small crew of 12) that led all the NFL games, major concerts and corporate events. After moving back to my hometown, Columbia, I gained management and event planning experience working for Learfield Sports and Inside Columbia magazine. 

In 2010 the dream to work for myself and create something new grew stronger, I founded AnnaBelle Events.  I am thankful each day for our clients and each event/wedding we get to plan.

In 2016 I completed the Gay Wedding Institute Certification Course to better serve the LGBT wedding market.  AnnaBelle Events proudly welcomes all couples as our clients. 

In 2017 I got the entrepreneurial bug again and launched a second business, Jubilee Planning Studio. Jubilee is Columbia's one stop shop for everyone planning events and weddings.  

Aside from "always working", I love being involved in the community that I grew up in, spending time with my guys (Gary, my husband and our son Connor)! You'll also find I'm a serial-entrepreneur and love growing my sides of AnnaBelle Events in professional speaking and most recently launching my new business as a Safe Beauty Advocate with Beautycounter!
