We had the good fortune of connecting with Brianne Pittenger and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brianne, what do you attribute your success to?
For me, the most important factor is building a relationship with every single couple I work with. I feel like going above and beyond to assist with whatever they need is one of the pillars of my success!
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’ve been in the marketing industry for over 8 years now. I started my own consulting company, so knowing how to build my own website, market myself online and run Facebook ads has helped tremendously. I’ve always had a love for planning – I’ve planned every single vacation my husband and I have taken, along with family vacations. I live off of to-do lists and Google sheets. When I first started my company, realistically I thought I’d take on 3-4 weddings for 2021, but I’ve actually grown enough to hire on 2 team members and expand to another state. It’s been a really great industry to join – everyone is willing to help along the way, which is greatly appreciated. For me, it isn’t about anything else except for helping brides & grooms with the wedding planning process. No matter the ask, I’m happy to take care of it and make sure their day runs smoothly.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’m definitely an adventurous type of person who enjoys a cozy weekend binging Netflix. We’d probably either take a trip to my favorite place (Telluride) and spend the weekend trying new restaurants, hiking new trails and exploring. Or, we’d find a trail close-by, take the pups on an adventure and then head back to our house for a nice home-cooked meal and movie night.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Definitely the vendors of my own wedding! If it wasn’t for my photographer, Cat Galletti and makeup artist, Sabrina Deemer, I wouldn’t have taken the leap and given wedding planning a try.
Other: I also just recently launched a jacket business! The website is brianneleighgiftsco.com and Instagram is instagram.com/brianneleigh_jackets.
