In the Meet the Team Series, we want you to meet each team member from our lead coordinators to our event assistants. We want you to feel like you really know who we all are here at Christina Burton Events!
Today, we are introducing you to Lena!
Lena is an event assistant at Christina Burton Events!
Lena went to the University of Kentucky and it was there where she discovered her passion for the wedding industry. She quickly changed her major from Psychology to Hospitality Management and Tourism and got her first job selling wedding dresses in 2013.
From there, Lena got an internship at a venue in Lexington as one of the venue’s onsite event coordinators. After that, she got another internship as an event assistant – which is where she met Christy!
Lena is very good at putting herself in the shoes of the couples she works with. Weddings can be stressful and that’s where she steps in as part of the CBE team and does everything she can do to make it a day as memorable and smooth as possible.
Lena’s favorite part of a wedding day is the father-daughter dance. She loves being able to play a crucial role in a bride’s life. Watching the bride and her father dance to a song they chose together allows a glimpse into their relationship from long before that day. In Lena’s words, “It’s a chance for us to get to know the bride and her father on a personal level and it just goes to show that we connect on a deeper level. It’s something I always look forward to!”
One of Lena’s favorite things is to be on or near the water – it’s when she is the happiest! Her fiance proposed to her on a boat and they had a gorgeous engagement shoot on a sailboat. The photos are absolutely dreamy!
Another fun thing about Lena is that once she retires or maybe even sooner she wants to go to culinary school. She loves cooking and hosting friends and family and would love to learn more about it!
