Anna Lucia Richardson
Anna brings a ceaseless love and passion to planning and designing, for any type of event imaginable. She has more than sixteen years of experience in event planning and design and team management. Her scope of work ranges from Weddings to Corporate Events and any type of Social Event one can dream of.
Because each client is unique, she has strived to create a custom team of experienced professionals to best meet our client’s specific planning and design needs. Everyone on the ANNA LUCIA EVENTS team is dedicated to one goal — a successful event or spectacular wedding designed just for you.
In addition to being an event planner, designer and coordinator for multiple firms conducting more than $100 Million in annual sales, Anna holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Stetson University with a major in Marketing. She has learned to truly put her degree to work in a unique way and with an unending love to create a one of a kind “brand” for each of our client’s event experiences. She has found that the same way you go about “creating” a corporate or company brand is the best way to go about “creating” a customized, one-of-a-kind “brand” for each and every one of our client’s events, but on a much more personal and emotional level.
Anna and her team have been named as one of the Top Wedding Planners by Martha Stewart Weddings and listed as one of Brides Best Planners, in the United States.
Jessica joined the ANNA LUCIA EVENTS team in October 2018, after graduating from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in Tourism, Event, and Recreation Management and a minor in Mass Communication Studies.
Over the past four years she has completed multiple internships in the Event Industry. Before moving to Tampa to work for Anna Lucia Events full time, Jessica spent the summer completing her final semester of field experience hours with Easton Events in Charleston, SC.
Her love for all things design and style, attention to detail, and organizational skills make her a valuable asset to our team!
Melanie joined the ANNA LUCIA EVENTS team in 2021 after working her way through the corporate world for nearly 10 years as the Director of Experiences for IMG Academy, an ENDEAVOR Company. Her adventures not only provided her an opportunity to start many foundational projects to see through the growth of student and alumni engagement but more recently focused on building out the opportunity for corporate business around the world. Whether it was curating new experiences for community engagement, managing hospitality functions for The PGA Masters Tournament, Super Bowl Events with WME|IMG, leading the WNBA 2020 Season Experience at IMG Academy, building bespoke corporate experiences was her soft spot. Melanie is no stranger to corporate hospitality, VIP management, and weddings!
Weddings have always been Melanie’s passion project. She worked alongside a local wedding firm in Sarasota, Florida since 2013 assisting as a lead coordinator, personally executing over 20 weddings annually! Timelines and client management is where she finds herself most at home when it comes to wedding planning.
Needless to say, Melanie was excited to jump on board with the ALE team to help marry the two worlds together. No pun intended! As an alumni of Florida State University, she received her bachelor’s degree with a double major in Family and Child Sciences and Psychology with her Masters in Sport Management, holding a certificate in Event Planning. As a natural adrenaline junky she wrapped up her life as a Student-Athlete to start a career as a professional acrobat post college. She believes there’s always a silver lining to everything… It was all thanks to a career ending injury that led her to the crazy world of events and she’s never looked back!
Lynn joined ANNA LUCIA EVENTS in July 2021 as Anna’s Executive Assistant and Office Manager. A native of Tampa, Lynn recently moved back to Tampa after living in NYC for over 20 years. She brings a wealth of experience in the art and design worlds.
Suzanne is passionate about helping people. She is a connector who loves to bring people together. That’s why event planning is right up her alley. She has an extensive background in the catering industry, working in such a high-stress environment helped her master the skills of multitasking, time management, and efficiency of customer service as a top priority. When Suzanne is not planning, visualizing, creating or dreaming up events, she is spending any free time she does have with the love of her life and their rescue pup Ace. A few of her favorite things are sloths, cotton candy, and the Michigan State Spartans!
