We included images of weddings planned by Alison at Castle Farm to show you her skills! Here is our interview with Alison, unedited.

 

Describe yourself as a vendor – What do you do for our couples?

 

We are different in that we provide florals, decor, and coordination services. We help each couple bring their vision to life for what they want the day to look and feel like. Through rentals or florals, we can provide everything they would need to make their ceremony & reception as they envisioned.

When I moved to the shore 20 years ago I started doing fundraising for the American Red Cross. We raised money for disaster along the shore helping to secure necessary items for shelters in the event of disasters. The fundraising efforts brought us recognition with the National Chapter and secured a spot on the Tiffany Circle in DC. I also helped to start numerous organizations here on the shore. we did fashion shows, luncheons, fishing tournaments, and women’s groups. All of these involved Planning and executing each event for large groups. It was a natural crossover to do weddings.

What was your inspiration to start a wedding business?

 

A friend of mine suggested that there was a need for someone to do weddings and that I should take my skills there. I initially started as an officiant and saw the need and loved the work for a wedding professional. I got certified and the rest is history! To this day we believe continuing education is essential and believe in community before competition.

What type of couple should choose you? What makes you unique in the industry?

 

Someone who wants to collaborate with a team who knows the ropes and can trust us to do what we do best.
We are unique because we are a one-stop shop and offer everything a couple might need. Each client is part of our family and we take our role in their day seriously.
