We’re back with another Creative Partner Spotlight! Event managers can make or break your big day, and we’re lucky to know some of the best in the industry. So today, we’re chatting with Jenny Hitesman, the event manager for Beets Hospitality Group who oversees all the happenings at Palm Event Center & Casa Real.
Without further ado, we’ll let Jenny take it from here!
Tell us a bit about your professional background. What brought you to the event industry?
There are many people who say they were raised in the hospitality industry, but not many can say that they grew up working for one company. I live and breathe weddings and events, and I love getting to run them for the place I love! I knew I loved the weekend job that I worked through High School & College, but little did I know that it would turn into a life-long career. I met my husband here; I’ve made great friends through the years and love what I do.
What do you love about your job?
The interactions with both clients and peers bring me overwhelming amounts of joy. I almost feel just as excited for each client’s big day as they are, sometimes more. I’ve harbored some great friendships with both peers and past clients through my time in the industry. I can honestly say there hasn’t been a person in this industry I haven’t had a positive experience.
If you could share one wedding planning tip with an engaged couple, what would you tell them?
Just have fun. Don’t sweat the small stuff. While, yes, every detail matters, don’t forget the “why.” Don’t forget the sole purpose for all the stresses that come with the wedding planning process. Ultimately, you are preparing to celebrate your love.
Event managers are there with you from beginning to end, and Jenny is exceptional at bringing clients’ dreams to life. Want to get in touch with Beets? You can start here!
