Up Close & Personal

We’re just like many of you in that we’re a small company facing every day challenges. People are usually surprised to find out that working in the office every day on the logistics of producing 14 bridal shows a year is just the owner, Tommy Vaughan, and Denise Hoegler, the Market Manager. The large majority of our exhibitors have 3 or less employees just like us!    

Get to know a little about Denise:Denise

Denise has been working with Tommy full-time since June 2007. She works with our wedding professionals in all markets providing information, answering questions, handling the paperwork and getting you prepared for the shows. In addition, she handles the social media for the company and wears any hat necessary to ensure successful shows. Denise has lived in Georgia for 25 years. She received a BS degree in Sociology and Psychology from Berry College in Rome, Georgia and went on to receive a Master’s degree in Social Work at the University of Georgia in Athens. She has always had a passion for working with people and helping them to be successful!
