We Are Experience Makers.
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!
The passion became professional in 2006 while working at Soldier Field (home of the Chicago Bears) as the Event/Game Day Assistant. After moving back to my hometown, Columbia, and graduating from Columbia College I gained experience working for Learfield Sports and Inside Columbia magazine.
In 2010 the dream to work for myself and create something new grew stronger, I started AnnaBelle Events. Now, over six years later, 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. The collaborative workshop is also where the AnnaBelle Events offices are located.
Aside from "always working", I love being involved in the community. I am the Marketing Chair & a Board Member of the Community Foundation of Central Missouri, Founding Member of THRIVE, and an active Chamber of Commerce Ambassador.
Lead Planning Assistant
Nicole joined the AnnaBelle team in 2015 becoming a part of the Internship Program of Day-of Event Assistants. Her passion and love for weddings was evident and in the Spring of 2016 she joined the office on a daily basis. Covering everything from social media, client relations, and much, much more.
As a Columbia native, she has experience with local venues and vendors. Aside from being a part of our team, she is a University of Missouri undergrad and part of the Missouri Cross Country and Track and Field program.
Day-of Event Team
The expertise and extra sets of hands that make everything come together. You'll see these ladies on-site for all our events and wedding, guiding guests throughout the night and making sure all of our clients needs are handled.
