EBE Spotlight: Tara Buchanan Glick

By | Blog, Spotlights

EBE is made up of a myriad of people and personalities. Throughout this series of EBE Spotlights, we’re looking past the job title and learning more about what makes our team tick. We were able to sit down with Tara Buchanan Glick this week, EBE’s Director of Production & Events.

Tara has been in the event industry for 17 years, and has been with EBE for 13 of them. Throughout those 13 years, she has been an integral part of the growth that EBE has experienced. Tara is one of the two EBE Event Planners on staff, and, most importantly, is the Director of Production & Events. She has coordinated the lighting, sound, and production for over 1,000 events, and specializes in custom lighting designs.

Tara, or “T” as we lovingly call her, has a contagious laugh that keeps us all going. She is most often found reciting the details of every venue from memory, finalizing the perfect shade of blue lighting, and running between meetings and walk-throughs, all while managing to remember everyone’s birthday. Tara truly is the heart of EBE.

I asked T a series of serious & silly questions to get to know her better. Check it out below!

What instruments do you play? I play upon the nerves of my staff 🙂

What is your go-to at karaoke? Jolene

Who is your hero? My Husband

What is your favorite movie? Big Fish

What is your zodiac sign? Virgo

If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why? 1969ish….I’ve always felt like I belong in that era and I’d love to explore it.

What motivates you to work hard? My Daughter

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Turkey Tacos

If you were a superhero, what powers would you have? The power to heal….for humans and for malfunctioning technology

What’s the craziest thing you’ve done in the name of love? Giving birth was pretty crazy!

What was the best event you ever worked? My favorite event is a fundraiser for a non-profit Food Share program that we have done several years in a row. We get to take their actual distribution warehouse and have hundreds of pallets moved to another location for a few days while we turn the space into a hip indoor garden and raise a ton of money to stop hunger. So we get to feed our souls while they help feed Philadelphia.

What is your favorite thing about your career? I love that we can take a boring or sometimes truly dilapidated space and transform it into something spectacular with the magic of lighting and production.
On the social side with weddings and mitzvahs, I love helping a client plan an event that, in many cases, they’ve dreamed about their entire lives and then getting to watch everything come to fruition on the big day with all of the genuine emotions. I am a very sappy and sentimental person so it is the ultimate reward to me. These are the moments that life is all about!
I love non-profit fundraisers because they remind us how vital one event can be since many organizations rely heavily on those proceeds to sustain. The closest to to my heart are our annual repeat non-profit clients because we had the opportunity to help them raise money for an amazing cause once and now we get to help them again every year while seeing how their organizations have grown and are making the Philadelphia/South Jersey area a truly better place!

Show us your work!

Wedding Venue Spotlight: Get Married At The Franklin Institute

By | Blog, Ask The Experts, Spotlights, EBE News, Vendor Features

If you grew up living in Philadelphia or within the surrounding counties, it is safe to say that you took a day trip to the Franklin Institute when you were young either with your family or as a school trip. Many Pennsylvanians have fond memories of this incredible museum that are near and dear to their hearts. If you are newly engaged and are looking for a unique venue, you’re in luck. You can get hitched at the Franklin Institute!

A landmark and staple of Philadelphia, the Franklin Institute is one of best places to get married in the Philly area. Couples can exchange their vows overlooking the Ben Franklin Parkway on the rooftop or in the Fels Planetarium under the stars. Guests can enjoy their delicious cocktails within your favorite exhibit.

We sat down with Anil Veeraraj of EBE L.A. Starz and and Nick D’Errico of EBE Imagine to discuss their love of playing at The Franklin Institute.

While EBE Talent is at The Franklin Institute most weekends during wedding season, L.A. Starz alone has performed at over 2 dozen events within the last several years. Anil shared that his favorite area of the museum to play in is the Fels Planetarium. “The beautiful ceiling makes you forget that you are indoors,” Anil tells us.

Nick says that his favorite exhibit is The Heart, as it can make any adult feel like a kid again, “I personally love the heart exhibit, climbing through the big heart is fun.” He also adds, “Cocktail hour allows you to experience a lot of the museum, so if you are nerdy and like the exhibits, extending the cocktail to an hour and a half can be fun. Also, having multiple cocktail musicians to cover the full area would be recommended.”

The ease of planning a wedding at The Franklin Institute can’t be beat. Their wedding package includes:

  • A dedicated bridal suite
  • On-site catering attendant
  • Day of wedding coordinator
  • On-site parking
  • Access to all permanent exhibits for photos
  • Access to rooftop deck or rain garden for bridal party photos
  • Multiple ceremony and space options including their rooftop deck, the timeless beauty of Jordan Lobby, or under the stars in Fels Planetarium.
  • Wedding catering – custom menus from FROG Commissary

If you are planning your wedding and would love to get married at The Franklin Institute, EBE is here to help you plan your entertainment needs. Contact us today!

EBE Vendor Feature: Amanda Dabbeekeh from Diamonds and Details

By | Blog, Ask The Experts, Spotlights, EBE News, Vendor Features

In our industry, it’s impossible to execute an incredible event without the help of other dynamic vendors. In our Vendor Features, we learn more about the people who we love to work with event after event, and year after year. Next up is Amanda Dabbeekah, owner of Diamonds & Details.

Amanda created a website for Diamonds & Details 10 years ago, and booked her first client two months later. After no time at all, Diamonds & Details grew to her full-time position!

I was able to sit down with Amanda to ask her a few questions… check it out!

What makes Diamonds and Details stand out next to companies like it?

Diamonds and Details is very client focused. We take on a limited number of weddings a year so that we can focus on our clients’ needs from the day they hire us right up until wedding day. Even our clients who hire us for wedding day management (also known as “day of coordination”) have a very hands-on experience working with the company… they can reach out at anytime to their Coordinator as opposed to 1 or 2 months before the wedding like some other companies offer in their packages.

What motivates you to work hard?

Seeing my clients happy! Finding the right venue or perfect band for a client makes me want to work even harder to plan their perfect wedding!

Tell us about your favorite event and why it was/is your favorite

Every wedding the company works on is different, even if it’s a venue we have worked at before so picking a favorite can be hard. Personally, I do love when I work with clients that have a little bit of an “offbeat theme” to them or they pick a really nontraditional venue. We have worked at venues like the Franklin Institute and the Please Touch Museum and those venues always make for a fun wedding. Our clients that got married at the Franklin Institute really wanted to have a “fun, nerdy” wedding as they called it – we incorporated Star Wars, Legos and astronomy into a lot of their wedding details. As a surprise to everyone, even the Bride and Groom, their officiant dressed up like the Priest from the Princess Bride (and used the same lines from the movie) which still is a favorite wedding moment of ours!

Favorite Wedding Month?

October is the new June, but I love the summer heat… so any summer months are my favorite!

What is your Best Advice for Potential Clients?

The most obvious advice – Hire a Wedding Planner! I also tell clients not to worry about everyone else and do what THEY want – personalize your wedding so it really speaks about you as the couple getting married. Love traveling? Name your tables after places you have been. Are you known for a funny story with family and friends? Make your wedding hashtag or name your signature drinks with something to do with that story – guests will love it!

What is your Favorite thing to do in Philadelphia?

I am a history buff so I love exploring the museums in the city and seeing all the landmarks and historical places.

What is your Zodiac Sign?

Capricorn

What is your Favorite Movie?

The Notebook! (I even named one of my sons Noah)

What is your Go-to at Karaoke?

I don’t sing in public! I have major stage fright!

If you could join any past or present music group, which would you want to join?

NSYNC! (guilty pleasure and favorite group – have seen them in concert over 15 times!)

Is there anything else you want to tell us about your company?

The ongoing theme in many of our online reviews is that we truly love working with our clients and I would completely agree with this sentiment! We are really all about the details and bringing our clients vision to life as best as possible. Keeping the planning process as stress free as possible is also a top priority and we would love the opportunity to work with you to do just that!

Show us some photos you love!
