Remember when parties were special? When friends would send handwritten invitations to dinner parties featuring a unique menu, stylish cocktails, and their grandmother’s china. When a band, a barn, and a sparkly dress meant a night of dancing. When families gathered in meaningful places to celebrate and build their own traditions.
We do, and we’re passionate about crafting individualized events that capture the essence of the people involved. With charming touches, eclectic taste, vintage tidbits, and creative genius we seek to rescue weddings from the one size fits all model of function halls, and revive the glory of garden parties, backyard weddings, and urban shindigs. We want to restore weddings to their rightful place: making them the best day EVER!
Parties should be special. They should be beautiful. They should be memorable. And, most importantly, they should be fun. That’s what we believe, and that’s what we seek to provide all the new friends we collaborate with. We’re Good Ol’-Fashioned Party, and we’re pleased to meet you.
Meet Heather, our CEO, the Chief Event Organizer (yes we make up our own titles here). With an extensive background in Sales and Marketing and hosting corporate events around the country for Warner Bros. Entertainment, she recently escaped the corporate world and headed in the direction of her passions: planning the perfect party. Heather is a treasure-scouter, an organizational whiz, and just about the nicest woman you’ll ever meet.
Kelly (Heather’s daughter) is the Director of all Things Creative. As an avid daydreamer, vintage obsessed, and an outside-the-box thinker, Kelly loves beautifully distinct things and thrives on turning event dreams into reality. She believes strongly in details, giggling, and having the coolest job in the world with her mom.
Taryn (Heather's pretend daughter) is the Chief of Fun Officer (CFO). With her energy and organizational expertise your event will be in great hands. Taryn comes from the non-profit environmental education world as a Program Manager, event planner, and organizational master. She quickly figured out she has a knack for putting together events and turning them into something really magical. She wants to bring your visions to life in a fun and creative way. Taryn has an adventurous spirit and is an avid lover of the outdoors, you will find her basking in the sunshine about every opportunity she gets!
