Meagan has been part of the Elmhurst Park District team full-time for almost 11 years (16 years all together including part-time work.) She is responsible for all things Mansion-related. From touring, putting contracts together and answering questions during the process, to working with outside vendors and organizing community events, Meagan has her part in all of it.
Her favorite part of being part of the Wilder Mansion team is seeing couples walk into Mansion for the first time and realizing the Mansion is “the place” where they’re getting married. It’s truly a special moment to witness.
One advice to anyone planning an event – when it comes to planning your wedding, remember what the day is all about—getting married. No matter what you have on the menu, what songs your DJ plays or if you staged the best “first look” photo, your only job that day is to get married. Try to keep that at the forefront of your mind, no matter what planning throws your way!
Heather has been part of the team since December 2008, when Wilder Mansion opened for events. She’s the one you’ll find organizing the long list of To-Do’s, managing the logistics and pre-planning for all the events. Heather also ensures onsite coordinators have all the necessary information needed to turn clients’ ideas into a beautiful reality.
Her favorite part of working at Wilder Mansion is getting to know the couples and helping them navigate the wild world of weddings!
One advice to anyone planning an event – trust your gut. Event planning can be overwhelming, but trust yourself and it will all fall into place.
