Jordan Larmay, Event Planner, Unveiled Design and Events
I met Jordan when I was 14 years old. She was 18 at the time. I was in 8th grade and my parents signed my sister and I up to participate in the local Children's Theatre. That year we performed in Bye Bye Birdie.
Jordan was there near the end of the summer to help with production of the shows.
That school year she was the lead in our high school musical, Guys and Dolls, and totally killed it! She was a ball of energy that everyone gravitated towards.
High School came and went fast. We all went our separate ways. We reconnected back in 2016 when I moved to Texas. We've stayed in touch ever since. It's wonderful to connect with other event planners, support each other, and watch each other grow.
In 2015 Jordan purchased Unveiled Design and Events and has been killing it as business owner, event planner, and mama to two beautiful boys.
Enjoy her story below.
Tell us about yourself - Where are you from and what did you wish to be when you grew up?
I grew up in small town Vermont where everyone knows everyone. Whenever we would take trips, you betcha it would take at least an hour or more to get anywhere with substance other than cows and barns. When we would pass old run-down buildings or motels, I always had this itch to want to fix it up and give it life again. I was always that girl who hosted theme parties whether it was for Halloween or end of school year. I LOVED planning and organizing gatherings!
What brought you to where you are today?
I have always been a natural leader, and if I want something, I go for it. Something that I was always taught growing up was to work for what you want. When I was in undergrad and we had to do internships as part of one of our event classes, I made sure I got as much out of it as I could. Working for no money of course is not ideal, but all the experiences I gained are honestly worth more than the piece of paper that states I went to four years of college and passed my classes.
What do you do professionally?
I currently work as a Contract Specialist full time on an Air Force Base. Talk about complicated and stressful at times. I also run my own event planning and design business, Unveiled Design & Events. I bought the business from a mentor and friend of mine when I lived in North Carolina. It was started by her in 2012 and I purchased it in 2015. My absolutely DREAM will be to run Unveiled full time one day. And I know I'll get there.
