My name is Amy Doherty. I am the Chairman for this wonderful networking group. I started attending Bay Area Wedding Professionals about 9 years
ago. At first I wasn’t too sure of who everyone was and how this networking for 2 hours a month could benefit me or the business. I would attend
here and there. Over time I got to meet new vendors and then these vendors became my friends. As I got to know my new friends more and more I saw
the benefits of this group. I was able to share my frustrations about events/clients, at the same time, I received wonderful advice. I gathered new
ideas and realized that we are all in the same “Wedding Boat”. A boat that I am honored to be on. The members of this group are my colleges,
friends, my guidance and inspiration. In 2013 I served a 2-year term as secretary. Later voted by the board to the Vice Chair position in 2015.
In December 2016 I was named the Chairman for this group.

And now……. Who am I in the wedding industry you ask??? …… I am the General Manager of Robinette & Company Caterers in Seabrook. I have been
with Robinette & Company for about 11 years (and NO my name is not Robin). I manage about 45 employees, a full service social and corporate
catering company along with a store front that sells gifts and home cooked dinners to go called Dish n Dash.

I LOVE my job. Catering is my element. I love the hustle and the bustle and I believe in only doing something if you’re going to give it your all.
Don’t do it if you’re not!

I cannot explain how proud of what Bay Area Wedding Professionals has become. From a small kitchen table of 12 local vendors to now having over 150 paid members.

–Members that care

–Members that love what they do

–Members that go the extra mile

Looking forward to a fabulous and prosperous year for all!
