Hollyevents. Who?

The Gal behind Hollyevents

Holly Trout, Wedding and Event Planner

Have you ever wondered who is behind Hollyevents? …..  The hows and whys we got started?

Hollyevents is new to the Lehigh Valley.  However I am not.  I was born and raised just north of the Valley.  It has been a dream of mine to have an event planning business for many years.  I have been a wedding-aholic since before I was 5 years old.  I always loved weddings. I lived next to a church growing up and would just sit and wait to catch a glimpse of the Bride as she came out of the church in her beautiful wedding gown.  I would try to guess the color and number of Bridesmaids.  I would wonder if these dresses would be something really different, maybe something that I haven’t seen before…….

I planned my first event in the fall of 1991, a baby Shower (for a little boy-we knew the sex, which was amazing at the time).  I will never forget it.  I fell in love for real and knew that there was NO WAY I could actually get paid for doing something that was this much fun!

I was very happy to discover that that was simply not true.  I ended up working in a variety of settings in the event industry….catering, banquet server, lead coordinator for some amazing locations around the country like Waikiki HI, St. Simon’s Island GA, Martha Vineyards MA, Hartford CT and others.  I worked with some really great teams producing all types of events, from social celebrations to business functions.   I am really Happy to be back in the Valley and I look forward to bringing my Experiences and Love for event production to the area.

I’m really close to being ….well I guess I am obsessed with Weddings.  I research everything relating to Weddings! I read every wedding related article I can get my hands on. I look at hundreds of wedding photos a week.  I go to workshops and events to stay on top of the latest trends in the industry. I get so excited every day …just because this is what I get to do.  Work?  I don’t feel like I work….ever!

Last year with the encouragement of my amazing husband, I launched Hollyevents.  It has been a very exciting and amazing year…..A dream come true for me.  I would have never been able to do it without his love and unwavering support.  I am living the Dream……my Dream!

So Glad you’re here and I hope you will enjoy this journey with me.  I will bring lots of tips and ideas for all types of events. I’ll also feature Real Life Events and  some of our great Event Vendors and Venues from right here in the Lehigh Valley.  So be sure to check back with us often. :)
