Wedding Details Wednesday. Each Wednesday, I'll share some of my favorite wedding day details. I love the sweetheart table design for Erica and Ryan's wedding at Zoo Atlanta Special Events.

Worley Productions is featured for the beautiful centerpiece! Check out our Instagram for a full list of vendors.

Spring 2021 has brought with it some exciting NEW HIRES at Proof of the Pudding! Over the next few weeks we'll be shining the spotlight on these talented new . Enjoy learning more about them on this interview below!

********************************************

Meet KATY BARAHONA, Catering Sales Manager at Zoo Atlanta Special Events / Zoo Atlanta:

• Food 🍕 is my love language!

• I have lightening ⚡️ fast reflexes.

• Purple 💜 is my favorite color, Prince is my favorite performance artist.

• I am going to win the next HGTV dream home 🏡.

• I'm a totally 80's girl 🎀!

• I was captain of my HS cheerleading squad, and captain of my college dance 💃 team.

• I love nature and gardening 🌷, but sadly do not have a green thumb.

• I could survive on (local) honey 🐝 alone. Seriously, I buy it by the gallon!

• My superpower is being 100% healthy 💪🏼, 100% of the time.

• I am 50% Swedish 🇸🇪 (most think Irish, due to my red hair, but the only Irish I have in me is stew and soda bread).

• I've been married 👰 for 20 years, and was married on Martha's Vineyard, my happy place.

• We have a Goldendoodle named Dogbert 🐶.

• I'm an avid recycler ♻️ and composter.

• My favorite mini series is Little House in the Prairie. And Gilmore Girls. And New Girl! ... but I do more reading 📚 than watching.
We proudly served as Production Chair for this year’s Allie Awards 🏆 It was a honor to play such an intricate role for this celebration. Congratulations to all the amazing industry professionals who were honored! Thank you Zoo Atlanta Special Events for hosting!
