Today we’d like to introduce you to Pamela Costa.
Pamela, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Being a mother has been my greatest gift in life. Planning their big events always gives me so much joy. I loved planning their birthdays, communions, graduation parties, my daughter’s wedding and more. If there was a certain theme for their birthday parties and the party store did not have it, I created it. I planned months ahead, much to my husband’s protests. As my children grew, the events got bigger. Everyone told me I should open my own business. I had always wanted to.
I was blessed to be asked to run a rental venue and it was the perfect job. I got to run events and work with brides. It was a dream come true. After three years of that, I decided to move on and open my own company, Pamela Arlene Events. It has taken off so fast. I enjoy doing themed parties, weddings, baby showers and now I have even started doing sex reveals for new parents.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I am a stickler for details. Making an event smooth is my goal. I never want a bride or client to have to deal with any stress or anxiety. I take that on so they don’t have to.
Truthfully the only struggle I ever have is with the relatives that come in and think they are in charge. They want to change what the client and I have planned. I have to stay firm. Making the dreams of my clients a reality is my goal.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Pamela Arlene Events – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Pamela Arlene Events is an event company. I have done red carpet movie premieres, baby showers, weddings, sport banquet events, graduations, birthday and Christmas parties and so much more. I specialize in weddings and themed parties. I am known for my attention to detail. I give the client what they want. It is their special day and they deserve an event that will be a lasting memory.
I am so proud of my company and how they have grown. I have added serving staff and bartenders. We are growing and I am so glad that I took the leap to run my own company. I can do a quinceneara with my eyes closed and that is not an easy event to do! Once, I literally built a reception venue on a patch of grass. It was where the client wanted their reception and I did it!
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I am always looking to expand. I work and partner with some great vendors and one day I hope to have a large network and become a one-stop shopping experience for all of my clients. I have surrounded myself with a trusted group of vendors that I trust. I recommend them and know that everything they do will run smoothly with no issues.
