Have you met the Fairies? 

Do you wonder what we enjoy doing outside of weddings and events?

Colleen and Brandon

If Colleen could live anywhere in the world… She would live near the ocean!

Her favorites include Santa Barbara, Avila, Morro Bay and Cayucos. When her son, Brandon, was growing up they spent a lot of time at their beach house in Cayucos, consequently she has many happy memories of her family on the beach! Colleen loves the calm, happy feeling of beach towns, and of course the sound and beauty of the ocean.

What is something that most people don’t know about Colleen?

She used to work as an Account Executive for Estee Lauder and would travel all over Southern California for the company. The job took her to New York, Florida, New Mexico, and Arizona. Not to mention she got to meet the one and only Leonard Lauder, Estee’s son, and Elizabeth Hurly! One of the best memories from her job with the company was getting to spend time in Estee’s actual office! Here she learned about merchandising, and just how important relationship building is!

If Colleen could change one thing in the world… What would it be?

Colleen is a huge animal lover!  It pains her to see so many animals abused, so she would do her best to make the laws much more strict for people who commit animal-related crimes.

We asked Colleen a fun question… Do you like to dance?

Turns out, she LOVES to dance! One of her bucket list items is to learn how to ballroom dance. Growing up she always wanted to dance, but her dad preferred her and her siblings to be in music, so she played the piano and guitar. One of her guilty pleasures is Dancing with the Stars.

Do you think that Colleen would ever want to live abroad?

She doesn’t! She spent three years in Oklahoma and missed her family so very much. She might be able to swing a year abroad, but she has no plans to do so.

What type of music do you love the most?

Colleen loves all the decades of music, however if she had to choose, she would choose classical music!

She also loves the sound of rain, or of course, the ocean!

Finally, we asked Colleen what the first thing she thinks of in the morning is!

She usually thinks ahead for her day, and sets goals of all the things that she would like to accomplish!

Stay tuned as we continue to share more fun and interesting facts about the faces of Fairy Godmother!
