As one of the best-known names in luxury event planning, celebrity planner Breeze Taylor has dealt with elite clientele for the past 15 years in such cities as New York, Palm Beach and Boca Raton.
Some of her clients include CEOs, presidents of Fortune 500 companies, top celebrities and athletes like Robert Smith of the Minnesota Vikings and Jeff Overton, PGA top-rated golfer.
One reason Breeze has such a wide fan base: her relentless effort in the pursuit of each client’s goal, standard of beauty and meticulous attention to detail and budgets. She changed her business model in 2015, rebranding her company from Dream Concierge Event Planning to Breeze Taylor Events, and is only taking on 10 events per year that showcase her expertise and reflect her style.
Breeze was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and grew up in a small town in Indiana. As the only girl and the middle child, Breeze loved the holidays and what came with them; a house filled with family, great food and everyone enjoying one another’s company. In college she studied Social Psychology and Business and got her first job waiting tables.
She has always been drawn to the hospitality/service industry, and eventually started her own business at age 25. With a passion for details and service, Breeze quickly become the go-to person for weddings, bar mitzvahs and other events. When she is not planning a fabulous event, Breeze loves to relax by baking. We sat down with Breeze to get to know her better:
