Annie is one of our summer interns at Revel + Bloom. When we first met her, she was studying abroad in Prague! We are excited to have her on board this summer. Here are some tidbits about Annie.
Kirsten Johnson is an Event Coordinator at Revel + Bloom. She is going on her third season with us and our team wouldn’t be the same without her!
Here are a few words and fun facts from Kirsten:
“I am a Colorado native that has always had a love for all things joyous and beautiful. My journey into the event industry started around six summers ago when I was searching for a summer job that would assist me in paying for college. After some direction from a family member, I started refinishing and designing vintage furniture. This was my first taste of business, so after that summer I decided to persue a degree in business and accounting at Colorado Christian University. (Yes, I am a weird combination of creative+logical hence the accounting degree;)) During my junior year of college, I found myself assisting in the planning and implementation of my university’s first Dress for Success Fashion Show. Over the course of the show, I fell in love with design, planning, and coordination. That next summer, I not only refinished furniture, but I also interned for Revel+Bloom and learned so much from Dana and Chelle in addition to becoming a Certified Wedding Planner. During my senior year, I planned over 20 social and corporate events within our School of Business. Upon graduation, I continued to assist at Revel+Bloom, and eventually earned the opportunity to start taking on my own clients this year. I am so blessed be an Event Maker at Revel+Bloom, and to be a part of so many couple’s special day!”
Fun Facts: I love dark chocolate and could eat it all day everyday!
Favorite TV show: Let’s see…there are so many good ones. Greys Anatomy, The Blacklist, Chopped, and When Calls The Heart (yes.. I love Hallmark).
Favorite Shoes and or/Designer: I am not big into designer names but I do enjoy items from J. Crew, Anthropology, or H&M
Music Most Played: Anything country or any of the songs from NeedtoBreath’s new CD
Ideal Night: I love hanging out with my family or friends and having good conversations, playing a competitive game of sand volleyball, or trying a new dessert recipe.
Recently, we had a styled shoot published on Ruffled. Kirsten headed up the design and inspiration for this shoot, all stemming from a vintage mug she found at a thrift shop. It just goes to show you that you can find inspiration anywhere- you just have to look! Kirsten loved all the arrows we’re seeing in fashion and design right now and came up with the Lovestruck theme. Kirsten has an eye for all things vintage and we think she did a beautiful job of creating a boho look that can be translated into something more upscale or used as inspiration for a simple backyard wedding. And of course, you can’t beat Red Rocks for a beautiful locale!
Where do you find your inspiration?
