If you’ve booked a wedding here at the Conservatory this year, chances are you already know that our Wedding Coordinator, Cayla, has welcomed a new bundle of joy into her family (it’s a GIRL!) and is now on maternity leave. We’re so pleased to have our own Rachel Jefferson step in as the Interim Wedding and Event Coordinator.
Rachel isn’t a new face around here. She started with us in 2014 and has been Cayla’s right hand woman ever since, so it’s natural (and lucky for us!) that she’s stepping in while Cayla is away snuggling with her new baby girl.
Rachel has a business degree with a major in Hospitality and Tourism from the University of Guelph and has almost 10 years’ experience working in the hospitality industry, and we’re nothing short of confident that our wedding couples will love her (if they don’t already!).
Now that she’s in the Coordinator’s chair, we felt it fitting to feature her on the blog which wouldn’t be complete without some Q & A’s:
What is your favourite part of the job?
I love meeting all of the couples and working with them to create the wedding they’ve always dreamed of. Every couple’s vision is different so I love hearing their ideas and bringing them to life.
What do you love about being part of the Cambridge Butterfly team?
The Conservatory is such a beautiful and unique place to work. We have a relatively small staff team here, so it’s like a little family. I love the culture here; everyone is so supportive of one another.
Any advice to the bride- or groom-to-be?
Always ask questions! Planning a wedding can be completely overwhelming. We offer full wedding consultation and coordination from the booking date right through to the wedding day – I’m just a phone call or an email away.
Do you have an all-time favourite wedding that was here at the Conservatory?
It is impossible to pick a favourite. I love seeing the creativity from each couple in how they transform our space. Each time is different, but just as magical.
