Hello from Risa Provencio!
I am stoked that you are checking out Events by a Pro for your next special event, thank you for visiting. And my name is pronounced like 'Visa' but with an R.
I've been doing this a long time, and my past website bios when I used to be Romanza Events was in a third person type resume. I would much rather be authentic and just shoot straight, so here is my self-promotion:
I am certified as a wedding consultant with the Independent Wedding Consultants of America since 2001. There are so many aspects of weddings and events that I have done over the years: I was a certified bridal makeup artist, worked as a server & bartender for a staffing company. I've been on staff as a wedding director for a major hotel, a popular ranch venue, a garden venue and and currently at an oceanfront venue. I've officiated a couple of marriages, provided decor installation services for a catering company, and produced car shows and city holiday events that drew thousands of spectators.
It is because I have worked front and back of the house, that I know the importance of every role to make events a success and that is a big reason why event vendor professionals like to work with me because I keep the event running smooth, yet I am not barking at them on how to do their jobs.
I am multi-faceted with a variety of feathers in my event hat within the span of my career. I have planned and/or coordinated hundreds of weddings or events (from intimate size to thousands at city events) either through my business or the venues I have been on staff. Several of my events have been featured in major magazine publications such as Wedding Bells, Inside Weddings, Tea Time magazine, Romantic Homes magazine, and Special Events magazine. I have been interviewed by Cosmopolitan magazine and The Wedding Book for my professional insights.
I'd be rich if I had a dollar for every time someone said "Risa, you are so creative!". It's a blessing and a curse, because my brain does not turn off. So what does that have to do with your event? It comes in handy as a planner because I enjoy the process of getting to know my clients very well, then weaving their interests, hobby, brand or backstories into the fibers of their event that bind it all together. You may find that the majority of professional event & wedding planners will just refer or rely on a florist or a rental specialist to provide creative ideas. But I can produce the memorable details that they may not have the time, effort or resources for. It's the best of both worlds when you have me on board!
If you have read to this point, then hopefully you know alittle bit more About Me by now!
If you want to see how we vibe for your event or special day, don't hesitate to contact me and we can chat over coffee or a soda. Or beer.
