I’m Doreen Burgess, the owner and CEO and I’m a certified wedding and event planner and a love for everything weddings. I was always the cool and social science person, as they called me in college. So I’ve always had that planning, social vibe to me. While in college I was in charge of the whole social/events organization on my campus so I definitely got my fix of social and planning even when I had my science side. And when I graduated, I did the science/medical thing but I always had my hand in the event planning realm. So eventually my husband told to go out and start my own company.
My love for weddings started after my wedding when I was asked to plan a friend’s wedding and I knew that this was where I was meant to be. I started out in the business to create amazing and memorable weddings and soon began my love for blogging. I loved being able to share with the world my creative visions and take on weddings while interacting with brides from all over the country.
So Innove Events was started as a site where brides can find bridal inspiration that THEY long for. So many people planning their weddings struggle with finding inspiration that includes images that look like them. Everyone wants to see people that look like them, doing what they are trying to do because it allows them to envision that they can be just as glamorous and gorgeous as they imagined. So the mission was clear: merge a love for blogging and wedding planning with creating a place for brides to see themselves in wedding inspiration.
Innove Events is adding new things everyday including Real Weddings every Wednesday and soon to be added Engagement Sessions and bridal showers on Mondays. It includes bridal salons, that carry and stock sample wedding dresses, accessories, lingerie and undergarments. Also not far in the future is the creation of a forum for brides to mingle and chat.
There are three things that I love more than anything in the world; my wonderful husband and darling children, teaching and imparting knowledge to all that are willing to listen and making EVERYONE feel that they are the most beautiful person in the world.
