Britni Lamb is our Wedding and Social Event Specialist and newest member of the BRAVO! team. Introduced to live music and entertainment at a very early age by her father (he took her to a The Moody Blues concert when she was at 7 years old!), her music obsession was kindled and didn't stop there. Britni developed a passion, not only for listening, but playing as well. Taught early on the piano and then introduced to the cello at age 12, it's a love affair that is still going strong.
Britni is a native Texan and graduated from Texas A&M University with a BA in Communication. Then a friend asked to help plan her wedding and Britni knew she had found a passion for events and immersed herself in weddings and event planning. She even worked in a bridal boutique to understand the process from every angle.
Enter BRAVO!... Britni has discovered the joy of producing entertainment for special events and is thriving in this niche market. Bringing her knowledge of events to the table Britni is able to participate in the process of creating joyous occasions and precious memories, while keeping herself rooted in the passion that is closest to her heart…music!
Always working to keep her level of professionalism at its best; Britni is currently a member of the National Association for Catering and Events (NACE) and the Society of Wedding Professionals (SWP).
