Celebrations Unlimited - Party Planning Service

 

 

 

From the very beginning...

Celebrations Unlimited Party Planning Service was started in June of 2010. I, Barb Truax, the owner/operator of Celebrations Unlimited Party Planning Service was diagnosed with breast cancer in October of 2008. This fact changed my life for the better. I am currently in remission with no signs of the cancer returning. The news made me pursue my dream of becoming a party planner & live each day to its fullest. No more taking life for granted for me! Life is to be celebrated, memories to be made and treasured for years to come.

I was married when I was 17 to the love of my life, Rick Truax. I planned my own wedding way back then and have been helping family & friends ever since.

I positively love helping brides with their weddings! It is my passion and it shows with each successful wedding/reception. I enjoy every minute of the process. There is no better joy than meeting with a bride/groom/brides parents and listening to their vision of the perfect wedding/reception and then turning that vision into a reality. Some people find planning a wedding stressful whereas I find it exciting and fun! I treat each bride as if she were my own daughter and attention to every detail is a must!



"I have met and worked with so many wonderful vendors over the years and have learned valuable information I will gladly pass onto you."

- Barb Truax
