Work­ing at Lesner Inn — Cre­at­ing Connections

We’re kick­ing off this Mon­day by shar­ing another Lesner Inn lady’s per­spec­tive on work­ing at Lesner Inn! Lind­sey Bas­night, Event & Sales Man­ager, shares that what she loves most is cre­at­ing con­nec­tions with cou­ples through­out the wed­ding & event plan­ning process! More on her thoughts below:

Lindsey Retouch 1.jpgWork­ing at Lesner Inn for the past year and a half has been filled with beau­ti­ful views, fun cowork­ers, won­der­ful clients and lots and lots of cake! The event plan­ning busi­ness has allowed me to grow cre­atively & pro­fes­sion­ally and I couldn’t be more grate­ful for the oppor­tu­nity that I have at Lesner Inn.

While there are many aspects that I love about this pro­fes­sion, my favorite part is that I have been lucky enough to meet and con­nect with so many dif­fer­ent clients. From the first email, tour­ing, and all the meet­ings we have before the big day, I am able to get to know so many brides, grooms, and even some­times the par­ents of the cou­ple! The wed­ding plan­ning process is such a happy, fun, and some­times stress­ful time for these cou­ples, so being able to meet with them dur­ing this time and help their wed­ding come together is so ful­fill­ing.

I always look for­ward to meet­ings because it’s also a time to catch up with the cou­ple about every­thing that has been going on in their lives dur­ing this excit­ing time. Once all the plan­ning is com­plete the big day finally arrives, I am able to see all the spe­cial moments shared between the cou­ple and their friends and fam­i­lies, which makes the job that much more sat­is­fy­ing!
