Meet the Owner
Lexie Albers | Owner + Planning Director
Hello! I’m Lexie, I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to check out Availed Wedding & Event Planning, in search of solving all your event planning needs!
I am truly Minnesota girl at heart, I grew up in Eagan, went to the University of Minnesota (Go Gophers!) and just recently moved to the ‘burbs of Plymouth with my chocolate rescue lab, Dominic & husband, Nick (we just got married last November!). We love to eat great food, drink IPAs and even though we love the Twin Cities, we also love travelling and exploring new places. Our favorite destination so far has been Croatia.
My love for planning and events started at a very early age as my mother loved to entertain. Whether it was a small family gathering or a massive graduation party, my mother always had a vision and thoughtfully planned each detail to ensure the occasion was a success. She also stressed the importance of organization throughout everything I did and that has definitely stuck with me into adulthood.
During my younger years, I was lucky to land a job as a Bridal Consultant at Savvi Formalwear and spent five years working there coordinating bridal shows and building relationships with wonderful clients. This is where my love of weddings began. After graduating college, I took a job at Target Corporate and my time at Target has really set me up for success from a business operations perspective. I not only built the foundation to run my own business, I had the opportunity to sharpen my leadership, communication and analytical skills. I am so thankful for these experiences.
Fast forward to today, where I have the privilege to do something I love every single day and celebrate life’s many milestones through planning unforgettable events for my amazing clients. I can't wait to help you with yours!
