Hi Everyone! Welcome to the very first Meet Us Mondays Blog Post! Since it’s the first week, I thought it would be great to introduce myself! I’m Lindsay, Omaha wedding planner and florist! I’m also a wife and a momma of two little boys! This company is my dream and it allows me the flexibility to do what I love but still be with my boys most days!
I never imaged being in the wedding industry, though I’ve always loved weddings. I went to collage for clothing and textile design at the University of Minnesota. Originally, I dreamed of moving to NYC and designing clothing, but then I met my now husband! After I graduated from collage I worked as a buyer for a Midwest department store. But, when I started planning my own wedding, I knew that this was what I wanted to do! I’ve always been very creative and love to build and make things, but my job as a buyer was very focused on numbers and vendor management. So wedding planning was a great mix of both! I love the design aspect, but I think the coordination and wedding management is priceless for couples to have a stress free day.
This is my fifth wedding season in the business and I just keep growing and building! We’ve been in Omaha for three years now and I absolutely love being a wedding planner in Omaha. It’s such a great market with amazing vendors and venues!
I rebranded to Lindsay Elizabeth Events a little over a year ago and have been focusing more on Full Design, Planning, and Floral weddings. I am the sole member of my company, but I have some amazing assistants that help with events and office work. You’ll meet some of them in the next few months! I love being able to get to work with my couples one on one and form relationships. Because of this, I only take 10-12 weddings a year! In 2018 I had 15 events and cut back to 12 for 2019 and it’s been perfect so far!
I have been married to my wonderful husband Reid, (who just happens to be one of my best assistants and all around handyman) for 5 years as of July 19th! I moved back to the Omaha area three years ago when we found out we were expecting our first baby. I’m from Omaha, so we moved back to be closer to my family. Now I’m a momma to two little monkeys, I mean boys. Brooks is 3 and Becket is 18 months and they are SO much fun. They both love trucks, train, dinosaurs, music (Baby Shark is permanently in my head) and Paw Patrol. Most days I juggle play time and work time, but when I have meetings during the day, they get to hang out with “mama Beth” and “Papa”. I am SO spoiled to have family locally and I can’t image doing life any other way!
Other random facts, I LOVE sushi, Taylor Swift, flowers (duh), reading, and traveling. Trader Joes, Salted Caramel Cold Foam Cold Brew Starbucks, and fun restaurants are also some of my favs. This year we’ve traveled to North and South Carolina and Minnesota, and we’re currently in Branson, MO this week! Plus we MAY be planning a trip to Disney this November. (Crossing all my fingers because I’m pretty sure I’ll be more excited than our kids). I also go to Target for fun. Because who doesn’t need a new coffee mug, makeup, super comfy PJs, and outfit for the boys, and a new candle every week?
I am SO lucky to get to own this business and I can’t wait to work with more amazing couples! If you’re planning your wedding and looking for a wedding planner in Omaha or Lincoln, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here to fill out our inquiry form.
