About Angie Foley:

Angie Foley is an experienced, organized event and wedding planner living in the beautiful Upper Peninsula. As a child, Angie thought organizing things was fun. She'd rearrange her books according to size one day and then title another day. Often, much to her mother's dismay, she’d take everything out of the cupboard and then put it back in the order of matching rows of vegetables, fruit, etc. Of course, all the labels face the same direction. This probably doesn't sound very fun to many of you, but it is to her. She likes taking projects and making them better and easier to understand or find for others to use.

This has carried over into her past career path as well. Angie went to Grand Valley State University and earned her BA in Sociology and a Master's in Public Administration. She worked in the area of higher education and had the opportunity to do extensive event planning and marketing of employee trainings and other social events.

All the while, she had great interest specifically in wedding planning. She took correspondence classes to enhance her knowledge specifically for wedding planning, and has two certificates in bridal consulting. She also has the authority to officiate wedding ceremonies.

"I love working with couple's on planning their wedding day. It's their day and they've asked me to help make it special for them. What better job could there be."

Her success is based on her exquisite organizational skills, her attention to detail and rapport with clients because of her outgoing personality and effective communication skills.

"I enjoy helping people in whatever capacity will help them get the end result they desire."

She established her new company, Superior Events and Expos LLC in 2010 in Ontonagon, MI. She has lived in the UP since 2008 and had been visiting prior to that for over 20 years. She feels that she has chosen the right time and the right location for starting her business.

The Upper Peninsula offers the best of destination wedding sites (beach, waterfall, nature, etc.) along with many other resources for a variety of events at very economical pricing.

"I'm lucky enough to live in the UP year-round and enjoy all the beauty and adventure it has to offer. So, when someone wants to come here for their special event, I'm going to make it as special for them as can be."

Her most unique event to date is organizing the Rock Skipping Contest at the Annual Ontonagon Labor Day Festival.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. The most common types of jobs that I do for my clients are wedding officiating. I enjoy it because it's a joy to be a part of someone's special day knowing that I was able to provide a service that aligned with how they wanted their ceremony to be. A lot of times, clients come from out of the area, so I'm able to assist with putting them in touch with other local wedding resources and I'm glad to know that they have chosen our area, Lake Superior and the Porcupine Mountains as their destination wedding site.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. What I like most about wedding planning is getting to know a couple, hearing about their story and what's important to them and the bringing that all together in how they envision their wedding day.

What I like most about event planning is coordinating the Western UP Women's Expo. It has gotten larger each year, it is a huge success and I love to talk about it. I love telling our guests why they should come and I love telling vendors how successful it is. They are so surprised to hear what a good turn out we have. The Expo offers so much to all who experience it.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. That we are worth it!
