LEAD PLANNER, COURTNEY ARMEN

  • I HAVE BEEN PLANNING EVENTS MY WHOLE LIFE. PROFESSIONALLY, I HAVE BEEN PLANNING EVENTS FOR 10 YEARS.
  • I HAVE A 5 LB YORKIE AND A 75LB GERMAN SHEPHERD. THE YORKIE IS THE BIG BROTHER.
  • I AM ORIGINALLY FROM NORTHERN VIRGINIA IN THE WASHINGTON DC METRO AREA. (YES, I CAN DO EVENTS THERE TOO!)
  • I AM OBSESSED WITH PINTEREST.
  • I LOVE ANTIQUES.
  • I WAS HOMESCHOOLED THROUGH HIGHSCHOOL SO I WOULD HAVE MORE TIME FOR STUDYING HARP AND BALLET.

  • I READ A LOT OF “CHICK LIT.”
  • WHEN I WAS A KID, MY FRIENDS AND I WOULD PUT ON PRODUCTIONS AND MAKE OUR POOR PARENTS WATCH. SOMEWHERE THERE IS VIDEO PROOF OF THIS, WHICH I HOPE REMAINS PERMANENTLY HIDDEN.
