Hi everyone! My name is Laney Schenk and I am the newest member of the Wynn Austin Events Team! I am from North Carolina originally, where I graduated from Davidson College in 2012 with an English Major and a Concentration in Public Communications. I started work in Business Sales and was transferred to beautiful San Diego at the end of 2012. After two years in the corporate world, I was feeling lost with no creative outlet, so I reached out to Wynn for a chance to intern in the wedding/event planning world. Luckily for me, she said yes! My passion for wedding planning comes from a desire to combine my lifelong love of art and design with my experience in the business world. My grandmother taught me to sew pillows at the age of five, and I have since spent all of my free time on any arts and crafts projects I can get my hands on, from designing clothes to painting to making custom stationary and everything in between! On my first day with Wynn Austin Events, I made about 200 napkin rings out of rhinestone ribbon, and I knew this was the right place for me! My inspiration for all projects comes from simple things around me. I have a particular love for typography and experimenting with color in new, exciting ways. I love to be challenged with new projects and I want every day of my life to be different than the previous ones. I truly believe there is a way to make anything happen if you are willing to work hard, and I am excited to put this to the test as a part of the Wynn Austin Events team! I have already learned so much from Wynn, Rachel and all of our partners, and cannot wait to see what this new adventure has in store.
