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 in each and every way possible! So we work closely on every small detail, to make sure your special day is all about you!
I have always been a planner and coordinator at heart, and feel I have all the skills to knock your special day out of the park (and the crowd roars)!
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 she sees herself: upbeat, fun, a bit silly, team player, organized, planner, resourceful, and innovative.
Meet Jessica Ashcraft – Lead Coordinator
From grabbing wedding magazines off the shelf, to thinking of the perfect wedding theme, and to writing out your “new” last name 500 times on a piece of paper, there is something magical about getting to experience this love and joy with your best friend and partner in life. My goal is to turn your day into everything that you ever wanted. I take great pride in planning a day that is so special and unique to you and your partner.
I am Jessica Ashcraft, Lead Coordinator for Unique Events. I started out working for Unique Events when I was a young teenage girl, doing little things here and there to earn some money. However, I quickly fell in love with entire wedding process and loved that romantic and energetic feeling in the air. There is something so magical about creating a setting for the most perfect day of your life. I love what I do, and am so blessed to have the opportunity to share and help in one of life’s most precious and perfect moment.
As a newlywed myself, I can definitely say that having someone to plan and coordinate the day is a must. I was so caught up in the moment, laughing and crying with friends, getting ready, taking pictures, that I did not have time, nor did I want any of my friends or close family to leave me to go setup and make sure everyone was on track for the day. I know how stressful wedding planning can be, and that is why I am here…. Between the planning, the tastings, the dress shopping, and the all-around excited rush, there is always a great feeling knowing that your day is being handled and prepared by someone that will help you with what you want, how you want it, and when you want it. That is what I am here to do for you, and I am so excited to get started on your special day!
