Get to know your planners -
AMY BACON - Although she has experience in all sorts of jobs and realms of business, Amy Bacon has always been a planner at heart and has been organizing events since her childhood birthday parties. Planning and coordinating events started as a hobby but she has been blessed to find this career that doesn’t even feel like work. When she isn’t planning or coordinating events, Amy loves spending time with her husband, Troy; spoiling their three kids (ahem, dogs), Alex, Rex and Broadway; and going out to eat at local restaurants with family and friends. Consistent with every wedding she attends and coordinates, Amy’s favorite part is when the bride and groom walk back up the aisle holding hands as husband and wife. Their smiles simply make them glow and spread their happiness to all in attendance. Her philosophy for Celebrations is client satisfaction, respect, fun, fun, and don’t forget fun! Everyone should be able to relax and let loose at their event so Amy makes sure that the Celebrations team members are the point-people so that vendors come to them with problems and questions, NOT the clients!
Amy Bacon is the owner of Celebrations by Amy Bacon, and has over 9 years of experience planning and coordinating weddings and events. Amy is diplomatic in difficult and stressful situations, and is a resourceful problem solver; analyzing situations rapidly, making decisions and meeting demanding objectives. Her strong people skills, follow through, persistent and persuasive nature affords her the ability to quite easily exceed her client’s expectations. With a strong belief that all brides need a Planner (regardless of budget and whether it’s a small back yard wedding to extravagant large venue event), a well-connected Event and Wedding Planner can save you time and money … and lots of it! Amy is an experienced Event and Wedding Planner and has devoted time and resources developing relationships over the years with other wedding professionals. Amy works very hard to instill a sense of calm and control for a client’s big day. By knowing the market, the best professionals and venues available to suit every taste, we can make your event remarkable; for all the right reasons!
PATRICE KLAUM - Patrice is a self-proclaimed city girl with a country heart. Going out to dinner with friends is a great way to end a rough week or day in Patrice’s mind, and a classic 80s movie or reference can cure (almost) anything that life throws at you. A favorite memory from a wedding for Patrice was while getting ready to walk down the aisle in May 2012, the bride Erin’s younger sister said to her, “A wedding means so much love.” Erin smiled and said, “It does, sweetheart. It’s marrying the person God chose for you.” You couldn’t be around this couple and not know that they are meant to be together. Once a wedding ends, the marriage will continue and grow; the event’s focus should be on that union and should display the couple as they are now and who they hope to become as husband and wife. That being said, having fun should be a requirement at any and every event including weddings! One of Patrice’s favorite things about Celebrations by Amy Bacon is that the team takes care of everything for their clients so that they can not only relax but also enjoy their special days as guests themselves. After all, an event is a party and what is a party if not a Celebration?
GALE JONES - Gale Jones is an Arizona native who has a nine year old daughter with her loving husband. She loves being able to spend time with her family whether at a local park, at the movies, or playing around the house with their dog, Oliver. Being an organized and creative person, Gale enjoys being able to capture and arrange each couple’s unique personalities and love for each other to make their dreams come true for their Big Day. Seeing the bride and groom at the end of the night with such deep love for one another in their eyes and the amazing time they just had with those closest to them is Gale’s favorite part about being a wedding planner for Celebrations by Amy Bacon. Guests letting loose and having fun at a wedding is a Must Do for Gale which is why her favorite memory of an event was when a father and daughter started out their dance to a slow song and then busted out to a medley of rap and hip-hops songs with sunglasses, heavy gold chains, and all. As with any Celebrations by Amy Bacon team member, you will be in great hands with Gale as your event coordinator.
We are very happy we found you Amy! You have been a huge help and we still have a lot to do and celebrate. Thanks!
