Morgan Holmes, Owner

After completing her Bachelors degree in Communications and Public Relations from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2005 and exploring Los Angeles, CA for over a year, Morgan Holmes found herself back in Chattanooga ready to start a new chapter.  Always being interested in events and logistical planning, Morgan found the local company, Soirées.   She soon fell in love with her job and was later given the opportunity to make it her career.  She purchased the business in 2008 and has been successfully planning weddings and events ever since.  When she’s not planning parties for others, she enjoys spending time with her daughter and husband, traveling and planning parties of her own!
