My name is Brooke Wike and I have lived in Northwest Arkansas for over 10 years. I started working for KFB Events in February 2015 and love every minute of it. I have always had a creative mind from the time I was opening my own ‘business’ when I was 10 years old to planning weddings now. The career as an event coordinator seems to have been my calling all along.
WARNING: Mushy rant ahead! <3
Don’t ever let someone else tell you that you ‘have’ to make your wedding a certain way. Don’t let someone else talk you into their ‘traditions’ or their ideas’. This day is about the bride and groom. It is not about mom, dad, grandma, second Cousin, girl at the dress shop that is a modern bride and you’re chic (really, you can be both!)… well you get the point. There are so many different brides with different styles, themes, and wants that anything is possible! We are constantly pulling off the impossible and that is the best part!
I believe my favorite moment of a wedding is watching the last guest leave. The reason I love this is not what you are thinking, it is because I can sit down in an empty room with half-way empty drinks, leftover fragments of food, a shoe left behind, a few photo booth pictures scattered and the quiet moment I have to reflect on all that we have accomplished. It doesn’t matter what went wrong (that the bride had no idea about), what went right, or anything in-between… what mattered was that we just married someone, and that’s forever!! Just remember the simple fact that 10, 20, 60 years down the road the only thing that is going to matter is that person you were walking towards.
