Meet the Team

Brittany - Sitting and LaughingHi! I’m Brittany Starks.

Events Director

I’m a sucker for things that sparkle, DIY projects make me giddy, and I absolutely live for a bargain. I live by my to-do lists and couldn’t survive without my calendar app. I believe in follow-ups and my mantra of “confirm, confirm, confirm!” Anyone who knows me is quite aware that I l o v e to ask questions and adore a detailed response.

I appreciate challenges and believe whole-heartedly in proper planning. I was born and raised in St. Louis, later moved to Chicago, and eventually moved back to the city I love…to marry the love of my life. I don’t really remember when my passion for planning began because I think this has always been within me. I love being a resource for my couples. Our team feeds off their excitement and it is their joy that pushes us to create their incredible wedding.

Our team works tirelessly to plan, design, and coordinate affordable, yet truly extravagant weddings. I believe in the power of prayer and am inspired by the world around me. Give me low costs, stunning design, top-notch vendors, a cute couple, love, and the multi-talented Build A Wedding Team…and you’ve got one heck of a wedding!

After all, every couple should have their cake…and eat it too!


Hi! I’m Erika Watson.

Event Manager

I hold fast to my mantra of, “No matter what, no matter why, just smile!” I love to make others happy and that’s why I enjoy working with Build A Wedding. I’ve always dreamt of working with a company that is just as passionate about weddings and couples as I am – so you can say this is a dream come true! One of my favorite parts of a wedding is when our team meets before the wedding – we have the opportunity to really think outside of the box and allow our creativity to run wild!
