As the Owner of A`vie Events I get the amazing opportunity to meet and work with terrific clients and 'out of this world' vendors. As the owner I want to plan your next event, believe it or not after 25 years+ in this business I really do still love it. (Crazy!!!) I do rise up every day looking forward to what I get the joy and pleasure of making happen for my clients, something that is new, creative for their event. It is my honor that each event is unique and different from the next.
In 1996, I began a part time business as a wedding coordinator and have continued to expand my reach over the years. I have worked planning many events along the way during these years. In 2005, I opened up A`vie and built it up, with a team of planners, assistants, coordinators and interns to plan any type of events from weddings, birthday, anniversaries, coordinators to help venues to school events and local non-profits raise awareness and funds for their organization. In 2009, I stepped back and took some time out of the industry to raise my much growing family. Now that they are mainly out of the house I felt it is time to come back into the industry.
I have the experience with planning events from 10 to 1, 000 people. My experiences aren't limited to but here are some I have done over the years, Corporations, Charities, Birthday parties, Weddings, Rehearsal dinners, Showers, Anniversaries, Vow renewals, Fall Festivals, Spring Flings, Vacation Bible School, Back to School Bash, Music Concerts, Dinner Parties and so much more.

Hello, My name is Margo! Love every moment working with A`vie Events. Working with Angela on weddings has been and continues to be a blessing and truly a memorable experience. I love details so working in an environment that focuses on even the smallest details is wonderful. My favorite part of weddings is putting the bride in place to walk down the aisle, looking up to see her smile, but most importantly looking at the groom to see his reaction to the beautiful lady he is moments away from marrying. Being able to step back and admire everything come together in that beautiful moment is something that amazes me every wedding. I have a passion for working with people and through working these weddings I have developed a love of event planning, specifically weddings! It is my pleasure to make a couple's special day the absolute best it can be!
My name is Stefany and I recently graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Tourism, Event and Recreational Management. I started working with Angela as an intern then became a lead planner. I have always known that I have a love and passion for weddings, being able to work in this industry is truly a dream come true. I love meeting new couples and hearing their stories. It is such a privilege when a couple lets us take part on such an important and memorable moment in their lives. Because of this, I love to work as hard as possible to make their special day one that they will love and remember forever. Seeing months of work come to life is truly an amazing moment for us and for the couple and I love seeing their reactions the day of the wedding.
My name is Lisa Philips. I began working in the wedding industry in 2013. I started out in Tampa, Fl., later moving to Gainesville to continue my career with A`vie Events. Working weddings is something I absolutely enjoy doing. I love meeting new couples and having the opportunity to be apart of such a big day in their lives. Every couple is so unique and getting to know each and every one of them is such an amazing experience. My favorite part about each wedding is getting the bride ready to walk down the aisle. Each bride is so beautiful and I feel very honored to be there for each step of the way.

Hello, my name is Brianna. I have only known Angela for a short amount of time but I have loved every second of working with her. I am currently a student at the University of Florida studying Interior Design. My creative skills and passion directly translate into the event planning. Working in an environment where such small details can be the most important is where I thrive. My favorite part about putting an event together with Angela, is the moment that we can all take a step back and look at everything fall in place and come together. Seeing the look on everyone's face as the bride walks down the aisle is worth the long days and the sore feet. I am so grateful that I get to be a part of a couple's big day and that together with Angela and her team, we are able to make that day special and memorable.
