Clients who book their event with The Winchester Opera House will be appointed a wedding planner to work with them from the beginning planning stages to the closure of their event. Natalie Johnson, our lead wedding planner, is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and holds a degree in Hospitality Management and Tourism. Natalie realized at a young age event planning was in her future when she jumped at the opportunity to plan and oversee a themed pool party at her home in Indiana. From that moment on her journey into the events industry seemed like a natural fit. Natalie interned with Planned to Perfection of the Bluegrass, which built her solid foundation and knowledge of the industry. Natalie is an extraordinary addition to The Winchester Opera House, bringing her fresh outlook on the modern bride, diligent organization and communication skills and fun loving personality. Some of the many duties that Natalie provides to her clients are several face to face meetings, including the complimentary design and floral meeting, availability via email and phone to answer any wedding related questions or concerns that may arise, a suggested list of preferred vendors including photographers, DJs, pastry chefs, videographers, etc., maintaining contact with chosen vendors, creating a timeline and coordinating with vendors and our staff, organizing and overseeing all aspects of the ceremony and reception, as well as managing the rehearsal and wedding day including scheduling with vendors for set up and deliveries, handling any emergencies and most importantly soothing any nerves with the utmost professionalism. Natalie oversees the planning process from start to finish all while instilling confidence in her clients with her attention to detail. She manages all aspects of the event coordination so that the client can focus on enjoying their event. Natalie’s inspiration for her work is that it enables her to meet and work with new clients and explore their different styles all while using her creativity to produce their own personalized event. Every event brings a new and exciting challenge that she thrives on.
