Edna Dratch-Parker, founder of EFD Creative – Event Planning & Design, is known as a wedding branding expert and pioneered the idea that weddings can be taken to the next level by combining professional design, artistry and event expertise. A graduate of Maine College of Art, Edna saw an important opportunity to bring a more design-driven approach to wedding planning. She established EFD Creative and launched The Wedding Brander™ – a service to help clients set themselves apart and showcase their unique personality and style through design. Edna works closely with each client to help uncover and explore their inspirations – whether it comes from their backgrounds, interests, or senses of humor – and apply that through artistry to create a truly special occasion. Edna’s talent as a designer, passion for event planning, and desire to connect with people to turn their visions into reality encompass everything she loves to do – and has established EFD Creative as an award-winning event planning and design leader. The EFD Creative team would not be complete without the talents of Kasie Blanchette, whose experience in event planning and wedding day management have earned her a loyal following of clients who rely on her expert guidance and personal dedication to ensure their special day is seamless and creates wonderful memories for a lifetime.
