A Woman on the Go!
Chérie Ronning has been in the Wedding business for over 30 years. Starting as a wedding planner, before anyone knew what that was, she quickly created a name for herself with her attention to details and love of the events. In 2005 she started a custom invitation company, Uncommon Invites, to create what she couldn’t find for her clients. She sold the business to her assistant in 2012.
In 2008 she was chosen as the recipient of the Dorothy Penner Award from the Association of Bridal Consultants for her “passion and excellence to the industry”.
In late 2009, with some close industry friends, she founded Wedding Network USA, LLC. This is an association for all people in the industry, from florist to officiant – everyone is a part of the team. Currently operating in 6 states, Wedding Network is expanding across the country as an innovative association that creates a network of peers, friends and colleagues. She also owns the Portland Wedding Lounge, a collaborative marketing vehicle for select wedding professionals in the Portland, Oregon area.
Chérie is a Consultant – Mentor – Speaker for wedding industry businesses. By offering her vast expertise in the industry along with her sense of humor, organizational skills and business knowledge, she has helped countless entrepreneurs find their way to a more successful and rewarding career.
