Meet Andrea Boykin – Owner, Certified Wedding Planner
I’d like to welcome you to Unique Events. Establishing Unique Events in ’03 was one of the greatest ventures of my life. I have 30+ years in every aspect of the hospitality business, so you know you are in excellent hands when you choose my team for all your wedding services.
Unique Events started shortly after I moved to north Georgia to be closer to its natural beauty. I was asked to help locate venues for out of town couples, create a wedding cake for another couple, make bouquets and decorate for a bride..It quickly became clear to me that there was a great need for wedding planning and coordination in this area. I feel privileged to be such a personal and intimate part of every couple’s wedding.
I think the most important part of the wedding day is that it reflects the couple. We work closely together on every detail, to make sure your special day is all about you!
How my clients have characterized me: personable, kind, warm, understanding, proactive, organized, detail oriented, flexible, friendly, sweet, responsive, hardworking, helpful, knowledgeable, calm, confident, and has a can-do attitude. How I see myself: upbeat, fun, a bit silly, team player, or
Meet Jessica Ashcraft – Lead Coordinator
Every girl dreams of her wedding day, and even after her wedding still dreams about weddings. Well… at least I do!! Over the years I fall more in love with helping our clients plan their dream day. Hi, I’m Jessica! I was born and raised in Blairsville, went to college in Atlanta, where I would drive back every weekend to work weddings, and eventually got married and moved back home. We have two precious sons, Paul Henry and Peter, and our perfect little fur baby, Marco. I love planning weddings because it allows me to use my two favorite sides: 1) my creative side and 2) my organization side. It’s such a pleasure to be able to create Pinterest dreams and make them come true.
I originally started working (or should I say helping) with Unique Events when I would go to work with my mother who was a wedding DJ at the time. Andrea would let me help decorate and do any tasks she had available. When I became old enough to officially have a job, she hired me as a team member where I assisted with decorating, setup, serving, and clean up.
In 2015 I officially became Lead Coordinator, and I have been beside her planning weddings since then. Over all, I have 15 years experience in the wedding industry, and I can officially say there is nothing I love more than helping couples plan their most special day!
Here’s a couple of articles we’d encourage to read:
