Amanda Spencer was born and raised in West Lafayette, Indiana. She graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelors of Science in Hospitality Tourism Management. While attending Purdue she worked for Marriott International in Indianapolis, Indiana and Lexington, Kentucky.
Following her full-service hotel days, Amanda accepted the position of Event Manager for the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. Her responsibilities included planning meetings and events for Chamber members, business leaders and State Officials throughout the Bluegrass state.
With Amanda’s passion for people, fine linens, and gorgeous flowers it was inevitable she would expand her focus to weddings and other social events. Her goal – to exceed expectations with details, frill, and fun!
“I truly have the best job in the whole entire world. I adore meeting with clients for the first time and sharing my enthusiasm and ideas with families who are about to plan emotional and exciting events that will create memories for a lifetime!”
While working for Marriott in Lexington, Amanda met and married her hubby, Case Spencer. Case and Amanda have two darling fellas, Griffin and Russ. Along with their sweet yellow lab pup, Libby, they are a family privileged to be working with families on such joyous occasions.
Amanda is a member of Hilton Head Island Cotillion, active with May River Montessori School, and volunteers with Children’s Miracle Network.
Wedding Day Favorite: “I adore being with my brides right before they walk down the aisle. All of our hard work, months (sometime years) of emails, conference calls and planning are worth it for that very moment! The excitement in the groom’s face, the butterflies and sparkle the bride portrays, and the pride that the father of the bride has walking his little girl down the aisle – that is what it is all about, folks! Not to mention I love a bite of wedding cake!”
Case was born and raised in Quitman, Georgia and is a graduate of Vanderbilt University in Economics and Business. He has worked with Marriott International for over a decade. His duties have included Housekeeping manager, Front Office manager, Director of Rooms, Director of Restaurants, and General Manager. Case specializes in heavy lifting for the Spencer Special Events ladies on wedding day and is much more than a right hand man. Our clients love the level of service he brings to each and every event and has even been dragged out to the dance floor by one of our favorite brides!
Megan Meyer was born and raised in the wilds of Southern California. A hair stylist by trade, she began her love affair with weddings styling gorgeous updos and long, loose waves for Brides and their maids. She has been featured in publications such as Style Me Pretty, Once Wed, and Green Wedding Shoes. As she continued down the stylist path she realized she wanted to be a part of the action and help to craft all those beautiful details that make up an affair. One year and a cross-country move later, Megan landed herself in the South and found the perfect home at Spencer Special Events. She is recently married to her handsome hubby Sasha and re-located to beautiful Boston. Megan continues to be a great support to the Spencer Special Events team from the big city!
