JoAnne V Brown
Founder & Creative Director
As a child of the Caribbean and woman of the world, my design style is a vibrant mosaic of eclectic ideas. Just as the Caribbean embodies a blend of cultures and traditions, so my ever evolving style draws from the array of influences that surround me every day, from Contemporary and Colonial to Calypso and Carnival. I am dedicated to luxurious events of unique design, and my passion is to innovate and create the unexpected.
Born into a large Caribbean family with multicultural roots, I was the only daughter to my Jamaican Father and Caymanian mother who from a very young age introduced me to the wonderful life of celebrating and entertaining! Our family regularly entertained royalty, well known movie stars and celebrities of the time, including HRH Prince Phillip, HRH Prince Charles and HRH Princess Margaret.
Entertaining, hosting and making people happy was just a way of life, and I loved every minute of it! I became part and parcel of this incredible world, growing up to bring the hospitality, decoration, gorgeous flowers, special touches and décor elements that made every event a unique celebration. With the tremendous support of my entrepreneur husband Mike, it didn’t take long to figure out that our next step from constant entertaining was to take it to the next level, and in 1994 my first store was launched.
The business took off and grew rapidly from strength to strength, and eighteen years later, Celebrations is now the largest and most successful Wedding & Event Design, Planning and Production Company in the Caribbean. Our reputation is built on offering clients the peace of mind that comes from our long experience of creating amazing events, and from the sincere care and attention that goes into everything we do, exceeding our clients’ expectations every time.
With my unique events, each designed element is an integral part of the whole, all adding up to one ultimate experience. That’s why at Celebrations Creative High Art is what we are all about, and thoughtful design goes into everything we think, do and touch. To put it simply I get the greatest satisfaction from being able to interpret and deliver on our client’s’ wishes and dreams, and I feel privileged to be part of the great events in people’s lives.
I sincerely hope you find what you are looking for here with Celebrations and I look forward to sharing your special occasion, and making the impossible not just possible, but a reality for you.
