Alison Blankenship

How did your business journey begin?
I worked in corporate events for about 10 years and was yearning to express some creativity and build events that were fun! I met Kaci at a friend's wedding and the rest is history. 

What do you value?
I value the small details of weddings and ensuring they run like a well oiled machine. 

What do you want your Ideal Client to know? 
I want to help take the stress out of a potentially stressful process. I want you to look back on your wedding and the planning process with only fond memories.  

What sets you apart? 
I really enjoy getting to know my clients. Hearing their back story, all about their dream wedding, and just what they are into in general is one of my favorite parts of the process. Investing in truly knowing them as people helps me to anticipate their needs, worries, and teaches me how to best approach the big day! 

Where are you from? 
Born in Chicago, Il. Grew up in Dayton, Oh. Reside in Cincinnati, Oh. 

Fun Facts

01. My hometown is: Englewood, Ohio - a suburb north of Dayton, Ohio... think farm land and a handful of chain restaurants. 

02. My favorite place in the world is: anywhere with my husband and 2 little boys.

03. My favorite part of a wedding is: The feeling of pure joy and love that fills the space. Everyone is there to celebrate love, what an amazing thing!
