My name is Bailey Matthews Beaver and I am the creator of BASH. Throughout college I was always the girl that found an excuse to throw a party. Not just any party! One that consisted of unique invitations, a detailed menu, themed decorations and maybe even a favor or two. After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta in 2003, with a Culinary Arts degree, and working in the kitchen of several restaurants and catering companies in Atlanta, I moved into a position as Catering Sales Coordinator. Working for a small company in this arena demands that you learn EVERYTHING about what it takes to successfully plan and execute an event. From beginning to end, I always worked to provide more than what was expected from my clients. This is where I realized my passion for creating all the memorable details that makes an event so special! And then BASH was born. The emotions from family members and the hugs from happy couples as they race to the limo at the end of the night are some of the most rewarding times in my life.
The other rewarding moments always arrive to me from my family. My husband Casey and our two beautiful children, Garren and Ella Grace, make it all complete.
Of course in this industry, all of us wedding vendors, we become family too. I take pride in being about to work with some of the best in the business!
I’m Jacki Snow. My love and history of event coordinating started in high school when I was the head party host at a dance & gymnastics studio where I also taught. There was nothing more fun than scheduling, planning and hosting (in a fairy princess costume, nonetheless) weekly parties for excited little birthday girls. Since then my love for event planning and designing grew. Because my degree is in Public Relations, I have been able to gain a thorough knowledge of everything that goes into an event from design and branding to conception and completion. While working for a small PR boutique in Atlanta, I really fell in love with the event coordinating side of PR. Later, I broke away from the traditional PR industry and started event coordinating for small businesses in West Atlanta. It was around my daughter’s first birthday when I decided to branch out and start coordinating social events again.
A few years later I met BASH and I guess that leads us to now. My favorite thing to hear from my clients is “Jacki, we couldn’t have pulled this off without you!” I love helping brides, businesses and hosts execute the best event imaginable. When you get to do something you love, your heart and soul naturally goes into making sure every detail is exactly right and that every client is happy with their event. I would love to help make your event a dream come true.
