HAYDEN - Three businesses under one roof.
The perfect place to plan a wedding.
That’s Premier Productions.
And the three women owners also happen to share the same philosophy when it comes to how customers should be treated when it comes to the ceremony – before, during and after.
“It should be very special, and we’re all in this for that reason,” said Valerie Mesenbrink, owner of All About You Weddings and Events.
Rayla Collins of Rayla Kay Photography and Vicki Mesenbrink-Rozario of Bijouterie designs have also settled at their new home, 11354 N. Government Way.
“We’ve been doing this a long time and we know a lot of people,” Mesenbrink-Rozario said. “We know who is good, and who’s going to come through for you on your very special day.”
Premier Productions opened in December at the 3,000-square-foot site. It will also have a consignment prom shop, and has a custom-made runway in the back that seats 100. It will be used for modeling wedding gowns, proms dresses, tuxes and more. A show was held Friday on the black stage surrounded by white seats.
“In the beginning of the week this was nothing but a vacant warehouse,” Valerie Mesenbrink said. “It’s been transformed into this runway.”
Mesenbrink met Rayla Collins last year, who was then working out of her home, but needed an office and studio.
Her sister-in-law, Vicki Mesenbrink-Rozario, was looking for a place to show and sell her custom jewelry for weddings, proms and special occasions.
“I work with the bride and I help them find something to make them feel special and beautiful on their day, but I work within their budget,” Vicki said.
And Valerie Mesenbrink needed more room for conferencing with clients.
“We found a spot we all approved of,” Valerie said. “In this area, it seems networking is what it’s all about.”
She said anyone can walk in the front door, feel comfortable, and know they can take care of almost everything for a wedding under one roof.
Their contacts count.
“It’s really important to have worked with people and be able to refer those people to the bride,” she said.
Vicki Mesenbrink-Rozario, a cancer survivor, began making jewelry when she was under going cancer treatment.
It helped her get through it and inspired her to do more.
“I decided that since God saved my life, I wanted to give back to these people,” she said.
She got married a year and a half ago, and wasn’t wild about the wedding jewelry she found, either.
“I noted a lot of bridal jewelry kind of looked like something my grandma would wear,” Vicki said, chuckling.
Rayla Collins, who began taking pictures when she was 12 and turned professional at 18, said the arrangement will work well.
“It’s really nice because we’re all like family. It’s nice to work with a bunch of people that are one together,” she said.
Premier Productions is open 10-5, Monday through Friday.
