What does this mean to you? Experience. Professionalism. Style. Sophistication. The owners of Simply Divine Events know the latest trends and are experienced enough to infuse them into the event of your dreams.
Lori Randall knows event planning and coordination inside out. Prior to establishing Simply Divine Events, she worked as an event producer for Event Show Productions in Tampa, managing and producing dozens of corporate affairs throughout Florida and across the country.
She also worked as an event and sales coordinator for the Orlando Science Center, planning the center’s annual fundraiser gala, numerous weddings, and corporate events.
Combined with her experience managing conventions at the Sheraton Orlando North in Maitland, Lori has established a network of valuable contacts in the industry—vendors who know and respect her expertise.
Jessica has spent her entire life in the Hospitality Industry—from her parents owning a restaurant, to managing banquet staff and planning every detail of someone’s special event. She loved it so much that she pursued a degree in it. After graduating from the University of Central Florida, Jessica coordinated over 100 weddings at Orlando’s Veranda Bed and Breakfast. Fully involved in every event, she handled details from start to finish that ranged from helping brides select their special date to coordinating a romantic horse and carriage send-off after the wedding.
In 2003, Jessica joined the staff at Tampa’s premiere event facility, A La Carte Event Pavilion, planning some of the Bay area’s most prestigious events.
Over the years, Jessica developed many long lasting relationships with her clients and vendors—relationships she can put to work for you.
