How It Started

As a lifelong entrepreneur and matriarch of the Hendren family, Lisa has forever longed for the opportunity to help couples celebrate their big day.

In 2017, Lisa took a leap of faith and began her pursuit of designing the perfect wedding venue: The Manor at Mount Carmel.

Lisa now thrives as she gets to use her event planning background daily, tailoring each event to her clients needs. In her spare time, Lisa is an avid reader and loves decorating and designing.

Through her large extended family and strong, social network, Lisa works hard to ensure that guests of The Manor at Mount Carmel have access to the most creative and talented vendors required for the occasion.
