Meet Us: The BKWE Team
We are almost ONE MONTH away from the Brides Live Wedding, which happily kicks off our 2014 summer season! Besides the AH-mazing million dollar dream wedding we are planning, we have so many fun and amazing couples throughout the entire summer and we are so excited to be involved in their wedding days! Before we buckle down to work, we wanted to take an opportunity for you to meet some of the team behind Brooke Keegan Weddings & Events. We are lucky to be assisted by an outgoing bunch of wedding obsessed girls and are thrilled some of them are returning for another season with us! Plus, we’re excited to welcome some new faces as well:)
Here’s a peek at a few ladies on our wonderful assistant team:

Job title: Set-up Assistant
Favorite part of working for BKWE: The amazing team of girls!
Favorite part of working in the wedding industry: Every wedding is so unique from one another. I love seeing all of the couples different visions come to life. Being apart of the final product is a special experience.

Years (wedding seasons) with BKWE: Currently my 2nd season
Job title: Bride Duty Assistant, Blog Manager
Favorite part of working for BKWE: The amazing group of girls I get to work alongside, having Brooke and Heather as mentors and bosses, and the wonderful couples we work for! I’ve done some of the most jaw-dropping events with BKWE!
Favorite part of working in the wedding industry: The vendors we work with are some of the kindest and most creative people I’ve ever met.
Favorite part of the wedding day: It’s so hard to narrow it down to one, because there are so many special moments that make up someone’s wedding day. I would have to say one of my favorites to witness is the first look. It’s a choice that not all couples make, but over the years it’s totally swayed my opinion!! It is a rare moment in such a hectic day that a couple is alone (kind of!), and I always love hearing them say ‘sweet nothings’ to each other. Rarely will you see a dry eye in the witnesses.
Favorite post wedding ritual: The snooze button, a pedicure and a lazy day on the couch
Trend you’re most excited to see in 2014: Bright colors and bold prints
Current mani color: Fiji by Essie
Starbucks order: Usually, an iced soy chai
Name: Nichelle Perez
Years: This is my 4th year working for BKWE
Job title: Senior Event Assistant (Set-up and Bride Duty)
Favorite part of working for BKWE: The experience and getting to know so many amazing vendors
Favorite part of working in the wedding industry: Work doesn’t ever feel like work, you get to be around happy people who are enjoying themselves and having a good time. And you get to know that you made a very special day perfect for a loving couple.
Favorite part of the wedding day: The first look or when the groom sees the bride for the first time walking down the aisle. Those are the moments where you can really see the love between two people.
Favorite post wedding ritual: Relaxing!
Trend you’re most excited to see in 2014: I want to see what new dances people pick up on and have fun with during the reception.
Current mani color: Turquoise, black and white

Favorite part of working in the wedding industry: Helping a couple’s dream day come true
Favorite part of the wedding day: The first look between the bride and groom. Or once the couple is walking up the aisle after the ceremony has ended.
Favorite post wedding ritual (i.e. pedicure): Resting my aching feet and legs!
Trend you’re most excited to see in 2014: The couture bridal fashion: lace sleeves, capes, and color! I saw so many I loved during bridal fashion week!
