Alexis Goggin, Senior Event Coordinator

Hello all! My name is Alexis Goggin and I am honored to be a part of the fantastic coordinating team here at Occasions. I have lived in the Dallas area all my life with the exception of the years I spent in Stillwater, Oklahoma at Oklahoma State where I met my wonderful husband, Patrick. After the two of us moved back to the DFW area, we were married on May 21st, 2016 and started our life together in Plano.
My career began in marketing coordination and operations management, but ultimately, my passion for creativity and my love of design and coordination has lead me to a career with Blake and his team. My favorite part about this job is getting to find and create those little details that make an event truly yours. My goal is to help our clients create an event experience that allows their personality to come out in the details so they can enjoy them, without having to stress about them. From full event planning and design, to day-of coordination, I look forward to helping you make your vision a reality and taking the weight off your shoulders.
-Alexis

ONJALAI FLAKE

Hey Y’all! My name is Onjalai Flake and I am an Associate Officiant for Occasions Event Design. Some people call me O or Lady O for short. Whatever is easiest. I’ve been involved with weddings in one way or another for the past 10 years.

occasions-headshots-0130-editIt would be an absolute privilege if you considered me as an officiant for your elopement, vow renewal, or wedding ceremony.

I recently moved to Dallas from the beautiful state of Oregon and loving every moment of it. I now live with my sister and our dog August. I have three basic loves: travel, spa treatments, and ice cream. I may not be able to indulge as often as I’d like, but it brings me joy just thinking about it or living vicariously through others. My favorite saying is “Joie de Vivre,” or Exuberant Joy of Living. Life is too short; we must savor each moment.
