Versa is lucky enough to surround ourselves and our community with an amazing group of members! Each month we are excited to interview one of those great groups of people so that everyone has a chance to learn more about those within our community. This month we were able to speak with both Courtney and Andrea of Rooted Together! Take a look below to find out more:
Let’s start with the basics; what is Rooted Together and what do you do?
“Rooted Together is an event planning company that specializes in full-service wedding planning and offers month-of coordination. We also serve corporate events, birthday parties, baby showers and so much more!
We like to focus on the design, and love to bring our clients’ style and vision to life. We create design boards and help source quotes with local small businesses, and luxury vendors alike, which brings a sophisticated and personalized touch to every event.
Rooted Together believes in teamwork, and we help to create an incredible production team by “Vendor Matchmaking.” We will pair our clients with the best vendors for them, specific to needs, budget, and style. This is something we love to do and are frequently praised for by our clients.”
How did Rooted Together get started?
Courtney, the lead planner, and visionary of Rooted Together began assisting and leading weddings 5 years ago at a friend’s company and was given the opportunity to branch out on her own. She officially launched Rooted Together in 2020 and quickly brought Andrea on board to assist on wedding days. Andrea is an absolute Rockstar, and the glue that holds everything together. Thankfully, she started full-time in October and manages all the back-end responsibilities, helping Rooted Together to move forward full steam ahead!
What do you think makes your company different from other companies? Why are you successful?
“We believe in “People over profits!” or, in our “impact over income” We focus on pouring into our clients and making the planning process fun and enjoyable. It is not a job; it is a purpose, and God’s hands are in it. It’s like our passion project is people and wedding planning is the avenue in which we get to fulfill that purpose.”
Your team is always so cheerful and upbeat around Versa, what is your secret?
“The Holy spirit”, and “lots of water” (still and sparkling) helps! Fun Fact: Andrea carries a 132-ounce water bottle and finishes it every day! Gotta hydrate to dominate!
What made you choose Versa?
Courtney fell in love with the space when she came in. “I love the comfy and cozy space! It inspires me to get creative and fuels my best work! Also, Andrea so kindly pointed out, “I get more done when I’m on a couch! haha. The free printing, coffee, and awesome staff doesn’t hurt either!”
What is your greatest success from 2020?
“We survived 11 weddings in one month, DURING a pandemic! (most companies do 10 a year). We were able to serve some incredible clients, (making lifetime friends), we designed and produced some beautiful events, and somehow still turned a profit as an events company during a global shutdown. I couldn’t dream up a better first year in business, all glory to God!”
