FOUNDER & Marketing maven
Jeannie Ward is an event industry leader and innovator. Known as Wedding Jeannie, she dynamically navigated her own event planning firm business into countless print and online, radio and television outlets. Other creatives in the industry turn to Jeannie as a mentor, connector and influencer.
Always the creative, she started with a floral design firm, grew into a full service wedding and event planning & design firm, and dabbled in marketing. In 2013, Jeannie took on the challenge of becoming Director of Marketing and Sales for a Los Angeles based linen firm, expanding their reach throughout Southern California. Her efforts made this small firm, a power player in the linen rental arena. Soon other event based companies watching the transformation were knocking on Jeannie’s door to help with their PR & Marketing efforts, and 3 Wishes PR was born.
