Donna is the owner and principle coordinator for Ame Soeur Events. She has completed coursework with NECI (Nuptials Essentials Curriculum and Instruction) as well as Austin Community College in the field of Floral Design. Donna's vast experience in coordinating luncheons, Father Daughter Dances, Weddings and Fundraising Events contributes to her success as a Wedding Coordinator. Weddings are dear to her heart because they are happy occasions that she can assist in and truly make a difference. She has assisted in over 100 weddings that were all unique and provided great learning experiences for her and her staff. Tight budgets are not a deterrent to Donna, her abilities in planning within a tight budget far out weigh the obstacles that may be keeping a bride from planning further. Her attention to budget and detail allows her to show her clients how they will be able to have the event of their dreams regardless the size of the budget.
Donna has always had a desire to own her own business. When her daughter announced her engagement, Donna went into "planning" mode and found Kindred Oaks. Her daughter and future son-in-law fell in love with the venue, and unbeknownst to Donna, her career as a wedding coordinator was launched! Steve and Elaine Lincoln asked her to join their family as their on-site wedding coordinator and she has happily been a part of the Kindred Oaks family for the past four and half years. Donna's heart is with every mother who has ever had to plan an event as big as a wedding, then "works" the wedding and finds out that she has no memory of that night, other than her feet are killing her!
