Heather Parks - Sales and Events Manager

Heather is the Sales & Events Manager here at The Lodge, she has been in the wedding industry for over 12 years and has been obsessed with all things weddings & events since before she can remember. The first wedding she planned was actually her best friend’s wedding when they were seniors in highschool… she knew then that this was her life passion!

Luckily with the love and support of her husband, two children, family and friends she has had the opportunity to live out her dream, and has been blessed to have helped make so many couples’ dream weddings a reality over the years.

If you don’t find Heather folding napkins, pinning a bride’s bustle or a grooms boutonnière, fixing chairs (everyone knows this is her thing) or scheduling new Lodge tours you will most likely find her soaking up the sun on the beach while reading a book and watching her family fish in the waves.

She absolutely loves being a part of her couples’ special day and although she loves all things weddings, her most favorite part of the wedding process is the relationship she builds with her couples and their families over the time they work together.
