I’m Anne Tegerdine!
Owner + lead event | wedding planner here at AnnaBelle Events, it’s great to meet you. Consider this our first chat!
My passion for planning celebrations 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! It became a career in 2006 at Soldier Field (home of the Chicago Bears!) with my position as an Event and Game Day Assistant.
Moving back to Columbia, MO, I realized it was time to grow in both my entrepreneurial and event passion. In 2010 AnnaBelle Events launched! I’m so honored to serve such a diverse community ranging from couples celebrating one of the happiest days of their lives all the way to major companies organizing events that celebrate their staff, milestones and clients. When it comes to throwing an event in Mid-Missouri, our team and I want to be there every step of the way with you!
Outside of work you can find me spending quality time with my family - My husband Gary, our son Connor, and our new addition coming in Fall of 2019! I’m an active member of our community and feel lucky to call Columbia my hometown. Entrepreneurship is one of my biggest sources of joy, so my free time tends to more business including professional speaking and advocating for safe beauty alongside an amazing team at Beautycounter!
