"Very organized, detailed, and passionate about her job." - Carmen B.
Hello! My name is Andréa Sargent and I own and operate Andréa’s Occasions. This is the part where I tell you a little about me....
I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA where I graduated from Carlow College with a BA in Business Communications in 2004. At Carlow, I was the President of the Student Activities Committee where I helped plan various campus activities and events, such as parties, dinners, fundraisers, and talent shows. It was in my junior year that I decided I wanted to pursue a career in event planning.
I relocated to Columbus, OH in 2009, became a Certified Professional Bridal Consultant in 2011, and started planning and assisting with many events, such as baby showers, weddings, retreats, and team building events. I volunteered with the Michael Redd Foundation, working on their signature Now or Never event, where I was the Volunteer Event Coordinator and Assistant to the Chief Operations Officer. In 2013, I started Andréa’s Occasions and joined the Wedding Professionals of Columbus, later being appointed as Secretary to the board.
I have a true passion for event planning. I love the excitement of the planning process, the anticipation, and expectation of the end result. I love seeing the look on clients’ faces when they see their ideas and visions come to life, along with the look of joy and happiness of the event attendees.
