Today I’m going to introduce you to a new, beautiful, friend of mine, Maxine. We met last year at a networking event (correct me if I’m wrong, max) and hit it off right away! We since then collaborated on a shoot together and are planning on eventually doing more and more! yay!!
She came to me one afternoon telling me that she needed headshots for her brand new website. Sounds great!! Here are some of her images from her session at the studio.
Since I have you here, I figured it would be a great opportunity to tell you a little bit about her as well !
What’s your name and what do you do ?
My name is Maxine Bertrand and I’m the Owner and Creative director at A Gorgeous Fête
What made you get into wedding planning?
I’m not going to lie and say that I grew up saying “I’m going to be a wedding planner when I grow up”. However, I always found myself planning birthday parties for friends and family members. I would think out the color scheme, create the guest list, ensure that everything looked awesome and not one single detail was missed. At one party, someone actually asked me if I was a party planner and then it clicked. This is what I want to do!
Since then, every day I wake up and realize that I’m so lucky to do what I love… Assisting couples with making their big day a dream come true! With just the right amount of glitter and lace, I promise to create for you and your guests a unique, timeless and unforgettable wedding. I work endlessly until all of your worries slip away and you see and marry your best friend. I believe weddings are meant to be playful and whimsical, and as far away as possible from tense and stressful. It is my duty to ensure you only experience the playful and whimsical part!
When a client books you, what kind of services can they expect from you?
From intimate ceremony celebrations set under a canopy of whimsical paper flowers, to dance parties in charismatic old barns, I work endlessly to marry together the playful and the pretty so that you can focus on marrying your best friend. I’m game for a healthy dose of glitter, a touch of delicate lace and copious amounts of timelessness. I squeal for a successfully executed surprise and give really awesome hugs, too. Weddings don’t need to be stuffy or stressful, and it’s my job to make sure we steer clear of both.
We offer customized services to help our clients achieve the wedding day the envision. Just to name a few we offer full planning, month-of coordination as well as event styling
What do you love most about your job?
My absolute favorite part is the look on my clients face when they walk into the their reception site and see the room decor for the first time. Next is up is seeing them enjoy their night and with not a worry in the world.
