Hello my perky party planners and eco-evangelistas,

Today we continue our exciting segment on the blog called “Inside the Vendors Studio”.   For my Real Wedding Planners of Collin College, you already know what’s coming =) For the rest of my party posse, this is where you get to know an event vendor up close and personal through a series of questions.

Next up is Lisa Thompson, a wedding dj & mc and event director at HeartSong Events and Lighting LLC.

As long as I have great couples needing help and looking for great entertainment, I CAN DO IT.

Which contemporaries in your field do you most admire? DJ Mikey-Mike, DJ CrazieAce

Recent professional highlight: To have become the “GO TO” entertainment company for several local venues. That shows their confidence in my company and the level of services I provide.

If you were mentioned in a newspaper headline in 2022, what would you want it to say? Lisa overcame great odds and came out on top.
