Meet Lindsey Zamora of Lindsey Zamora Events in Addison

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lindsey Zamora.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Lindsey. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I grew up in a creative family. Both my parents started and owned their own businesses; my dad was an architect and mom an art-director. I have seen and lived the entrepreneurial spirit my entire life.

My older sister is now a fashion photographer in Dallas and was working as a photo assistant while I was still in school. One summer the studio needed a styling assistant and, thankfully, I was given a chance. I still remember stepping into the studio for the first time in over 15 years. It was dimly lit except for the strobes that give that all-to-familiar popping sound when they go off. I had this overwhelmingly calm and familiar feeling rush over me. I knew in that moment that I wanted a career in the creative industry. I wanted to be in a creative field that was something bigger than one person; I wanted to be part of a team that created something together.

It wasn’t until after college that I began working for an agency that represented fashion stylists, hair and makeup artists, producers, set designers and the like. I didn’t dive into the wedding industry until my own wedding five years ago. To put it simply, I fell in love with the design of weddings. I saw the potential and excitement of taking someone else’s vision and bringing it to life in a tangible way. I first approached weddings as a stylist. I worked with photographers styling details and focused my design on the tabletop. As my business steadily grew, I began designing more and more components of the wedding which ultimately lead me to have more of a creative director role with my clients. Shortly after, I started incorporating the planning and production side along with event design and styling which all make up my business today.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think it is very easy to get caught up in looking at others work which can lead a road of comparison and self-doubt. It’s a fine line for me because on some level I need to know the trends and where the industry is going but I’m also very careful to look at that from a distance. Finding inspiration and turning it into my own is something I am constantly working on. I have worked hard to develop a system that looks outside the wedding industry for inspiration, which is something I am very proud of.

Lindsey Zamora Events – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
My work is inspired by nature, texture and architecture. Many times, I start with the venue and let the vision grow from there. I break down the inspiration to something more than a just a visual level. It is important that I understand how my clients want their wedding to feel; what type of event do they want? What do they want their guests to experience? Truly understanding the feel requires incorporating all of your senses; not just visual, but sound, taste, smell and touch.

Over the years, I have developed a design and planning process that is fun and welcoming. It is a process that evolves as my clients and I work closely together.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
The Wedding! It’s always such a rush for me! My clients and I have worked so hard for months. There is such satisfaction seeing the sketches, swatches, conversations, timelines and planning come to life to transform a space into an environment. It is such a humbling experience to be the visionary leader and producer on a day my clients will remember and reflect on for the rest of their life. Each client is near and dear to my heart and I am so thankful for them!
