Lead Event Planner | Creative Director | Engineer-turned-Event Designer
Welcome! I’m Quenetta Gordon, owner of Something Blue. Many of my friends and clients just call me “Q”. I’m thrilled that you have found your way to our little corner of the web. Here you can learn a little bit about what we do, enjoy looking over examples of recent work, read some of our insights over on our blog, and find out how to connect with us!
I started this adventure almost 10 years ago. In that time, we have served many couples and earned numerous accolades and awards along the way. It has been a journey that has found us planning and designing weddings of various sizes and budgets in a multitude of settings for some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met!
People are often surprised to find that I earned my Master’s Degree in Engineering before entering the wild world of planning events. Those skills have served both my clients and myself incredibly well in this business. What it means for you is that I am ridiculously organized, crazy creative, highly skilled at project management, and can quickly and effectively think through and solve problems–both big and small. I am known for my knack of greatly exceeding expectations, producing breathtaking and truly unique celebrations that leave our couples and their guests in awe at our attention to every detail. I build great relationships with my clients. They love my willingness to be open and candid with them about the process, risks, and ways to get over hurdles to achieve their vision.
My personal belief is that every event should be overflowing with personality. I challenge myself to make sure that every event has at least one element that hasn’t been done before. Any wedding that’s a true reflection of the couple should have that one-of-a-kind component that wouldn’t necessarily make sense for anyone else’s event since no two couples are exactly alike!
Often when I meet with a couple for the first time, they ask if I am a one-woman show. Heck no! I firmly believe that two (or more!) minds are better than one. I have a team of dedicated, hardworking, and creative folks who help bring all of my crazy and oh-so-pretty ideas to life. With that said, I am the one leading the charge for you from beginning to end. I am the lead planner and designer for each event we take on. It’s MY job to get to know you and your family and to produce a celebration worthy of the investment and trust you will place in our team.—
