Meet My Assistant
I am overjoyed to introduce you to Stressless Weddings’ assistant, Lindsay Johnson. She’s been my assistant from the beginning. When Stressless Weddings was still a dream and not yet a company, she agreed to assist me on wedding days. I am grateful for her belief in my dreams and her ability to be calm under pressure. While she has a great eye for decorating and ability to make all elderly people smile; she’s more than my assistant, she’s my baby cousin. I fondly remember the day her mom told me she was pregnant with her over twenty years ago. (And if you ask me about this story in person, there’s a 100% chance I’ll tear up.)
Many of you know her as my ‘Pooky’. (She’s so rolling her eyes as she reads this.) She is spunky, sassy, organized, gorgeous, and always keeps me on my toes. Adding Lindsay to the Stressless Weddings’ Team was a no-brainer and finding our balance of working together seemed rather natural. There is something special about working with someone who knows you deeply. I am grateful for the long hours and hard work she offers our couples.
Here’s a look into the world of Lindsay Johnson. (See if you can catch the sass in some of these answers.)
How do you know Megan? Where did you meet?
I’m her little cousin/sister. I met her at birth I suppose.
What’s your favorite food?
What do you love to do in your spare time?
I love to hike, watch Food Network and C.S.I. Miami
What’s something cool about you that a lot of people don’t know?
I don’t have sinus cavities in my forehead and I’m still obsessed with Nick Jonas. No shame (I so remember when she was in the Jonas Brother’s stage. I guess she never quite left that stage?)
How would you describe what you do?
I assist Megan with anything she needs on wedding day. The tasks range from keeping a wedding party on schedule, to directing guests, and keeping the day flow smoothly. Also, I do most of the decorating of the venues which admittedly is my favorite part of the wedding process. My brain enjoys visualizing what the finished product looks like. It’s exciting to see what you visualized in real life.
Why do you love what you do?
I love decorating on wedding day. Planning things and executing the plan brings me joy. This job gives me the opportunity do what I love and participate in the best days of peoples’ lives.
What did you study in school?
I have a degree in Accounting with a Management Minor from ETSU.
What was your favorite photo(s) from this year?
Having my baby cousin (who’s really like a sister) on my team helps us remain focused on our main goal: family matters. We work hard on wedding day so sisters, cousins, moms, and aunts can enjoy the day with their bride. We don’t want the important people in your life rushing around on wedding day, let us do the rushing. Let your family sit back and soak in all the memories you’re making.
