If you can picture the salsa dancing emoji in the red dress, that would be Afton - inside and out. She brings the charm and thoughtful energy to each and every event she manages. Afton began her career in the hospitality sector at The Loading Dock in tourist-driven Grafton, Illinois where she quickly worked her way from server to Event Coordinator to Director of Marketing & Events. During her 20-year tenure at The Loading Dock, she executed a wide array of events including weddings, corporate retreats, concerts, and galas. Afton’s keen attention to detail, eye for design, and love of logistics have made her a powerhouse in the event industry. Formerly the Founder and Creative Director of White House Weddings + Events, a popular boutique wedding planning business, Afton knows how to ensure a seamless and positive experience for her clients. When not in the office, you can likely find Afton simmering soup on the stove, binge-watching Friends with a bowl of ice cream, or gardening in her backyard with her husband and two young kiddos.
