Meet the coordinator
In 2011, Anna Knight was drawn from a career as a successful custom artist and stay at home mom to the opportunity to serve as the Event Coordinator at Del’avant, LaGrange’s newest special event center.
Being a hometown girl with a Fine Arts degree from Presbyterian College and a minor in Interior Design from Converse College, coupled with extensive marketing and design experience, Anna was the perfect fit for the new position. In addition to creative talent, Anna also brings a love for event planning, a skill she discovered and developed while organizing local events from the Junior Service League’s Charity ball and annual Attic Sale, to countless festivals and silent auction fundraisers at schools where her three children attend.
Today, Del’avant clients benefit from Anna’s space planning expertise, creative furniture layouts and keen attention to the smallest of details. In 2015, Del’avant added a new service where Anna can serve as the “wedding weekend” coordinator to direct the wedding rehearsal, wedding ceremony, work with the vendors and provide a detailed itenerary for the entire weekend. Whether you are planning an intimate Del’avant rooftop garden party or an epic wedding ceremony and reception in the McLellan parlor and Kress ballroom, Anna will work to ensure the Del’avant setting is just as they planned it to be.
“Anna’s wedding coordination and planning services were outstanding! She was very oriented, and extremely hard-working. Anna was very professional as well. She was very nice and sweet to everyone. The day of the wedding she was there before 7 am to help make sure that everything was perfect for the wedding ceremony and the reception. We had a wonderful wedding thanks to her. We encountered some last minute issues and she was able to make everything work smooth and perfect, for example I brought my own computer for my slide show and it was not compatible with the projector, she ran to Walmart and bought the cable that was needed just so that we could have our slideshow for the reception. Anna was just extremely wonderful! We will definitely use her services again In the future for our events.”
