Hi! I’m Catie B. – and welcome to my art + lifestyle blog! :)
I grew up in Nashville and graduated from Belmont University where I studied public relations/journalism.
During high school and college, I worked as studio vocalist for various recording projects with Disney Theatrical, Musical Theatre International, Word Music, Alfred Publishing, and LifeWay. These diverse, creative projects led me to develop a penchant for performing in a studio and bringing characters and their stories to life through music.
I transitioned from recording studio to castle stage my junior year of college when I moved to Orlando to perform at Walt Disney World. I had a blast interacting with park guests from all over the world and creating magical memories for children and their families. While finishing my last semester of college, I was a seasonal performer (traveling from Nashville to Orlando several times a year).
I married my college sweetheart Wes at Walt Disney World in April 2015. Our wedding was a wonderful celebration which included a surprise visit from Mickey and Minnie, a confetti cannon, lots of dancing, and fireworks!
Planning a wedding with Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings and blogging about general bridal tips sparked my interest in event-coordinating. Inspired to help brides on their special day, I became a wedding assistant/day-of coordinator and have worked with some of Nashville's top rated wedding planners such as Music City Events and Modern Vintage Events. This spring (2018), I will be the lead coordinator for a wedding in Napa Valley, California!
One of my favorite aspects of my blog is providing brides (especially fellow Disney Brides) with quality information regarding wedding planning, budgeting, DIY projects, and the industry overall so they can plan their fairytale wedding/honeymoon with confidence.
Currently, I’m focused on creating blog content + artwork for my art business, Catie Bee Art. My dream is to one day write/illustrate children’s books.
Wes and I are living happily-ever-after (with our perfect cat, Abu) and saving up money to travel the world, buy a house, and go on all sorts of adventures – near and far.
I love musical theatre, Irish dance, horseback riding, Zumba, art, rock-climbing, martial arts, yoga, writing, photography, eating all my favorite Disney park food, and meeting new people! Let’s be friends!
Thanks for reading!
