hi, I'M BRITTANY
The centerpieces at my wedding were pearls.
I've become great at answering to many names. First and foremost, I am a wife to my high school sweetheart and mom to my one year old daugher, Kennedy. In the past few years, I have added esquire and dance teacher to my repertoire, while still holding daughter, best friend, and Bobcat near and dear to my heart. My adventure to open this business began back in college, when I held the events chair of my sorority. After planning event after event, I knew that I had a heart for the field. Since, I have planned several events for family and friends, and my passion only continued to grow. Cathryn was the maid of honor of my wedding, and everything was beyond perfect. It was at that point that I knew that my best friend was the only person I would ever want to do this with. So as we've always said, adventure awaits!
After planning dozens of events for their friends and family, Brittany Vakiner and Cathryn Hoel Boe put their experience, creativity, and vision together. The childhood best friends have been side by side through it all, so forming a partnership was a natural next step. Both finished grad school and began careers in their fields before they decided that they wanted to spend their time celebrating with others. From there, Postcards & Pearls was born.
hi, I'M CATHRYN
The centerpieces at my wedding were postcards.
I'm a wife, mom, creator, and an adventurer. After my son, Oliver, was born, I quit my day job in corporate digital communications to focus on my doctorate. I found myself planning a lot of events and each time I told my husband, Jacob, how much I loved doing it. After being approached about planning and designing after event, Brittany and I decided to jump in and help create memorable celebrations for others. Since then, we moved into our forever home and welcomed our daughter Addison. When I'm not spending time on an adventure with my family, I am lucky enough to be working with my best friend.
hi, I'M BAILEY
The best part about what we do is making a beautiful day come together, & knowing I was able to alleviate some stress of the bride, groom, and their families. Working with Postcards & Pearls really continues my passion for planning, as I have experience from the hospitality and the catering industries. I find myself to be a person that finds pride in my time management skills as I have always been one to take on many things at once and have the ability to accomplish and prioritize tasks. Weddings are the perfect example of this – as leading up to and the day of have many moving pieces that all need a monitoring eye. I am currently in the process of planning my own wedding with my fiance, Bill, so I know exactly what our couples are going through.
hi, I'M LEXI
I am the type of person who tries to see the good in every situation. When the opportunity to work with Postcards & Pearls presented itself, I couldn’t think of a better way to balance my occasionally tense profession with the chance to help couples on the happiest day of their lives. I am a counselor who has a passion for making jewelry, spending time with my loves ones, hanging out with my adorable wiener dog & spending as much time as possible enjoying the great outdoors.
hi, I'M JORDYN
My event planning experience began in high school when I worked with non-profits to host large fundraising events. Then, in college, I began hosting events for 12 organizations. I knew that it was the path that I wanted to pursue because it has always been something that I am completely passionate about & have the most fun doing. By some miracle, when planning my own wedding with Brittany and Cathryn, they opened up a position on their team & I could not wait to join them. Along with working for Postcards & Pearls, I am a full time Marketing Director at a local construction company &a local restaurant/bar. As a one-woman marketing department, part of my job is to organize, plan, and host all of the events for both companies.
hi, I'M ALEXIS
I tend to be the type of person who carries the weight of the world on their shoulders without the help of others or the need to delegate. While planning my own wedding, I realized that being a perfectionist & not reaching out for help would burn me out rather quickly. That’s how Postcards & Pearls first came into my life. They were the motivation, the help &the blessing that I needed. After my time as a bride with Postcards & Pearls had come to an end, they presented me with the opportunity of a lifetime. The opportunity to help brides, & even grooms, like me. The opportunity to grow in an industry that I have fallen in love with. And, most importantly, the opportunity to be a part of their team. Working with Postcards & Pearls has been an incredible addition to my legal assistant by day, crafter by night lifestyle.
