Amanda Schott, CWP
Amanda studied political science at The George Washington University in Washington, DC, and spent the beginning of her career working in the political sphere. From there she developed a passion for event planning, stemming from organizing political fundraisers. After traveling around the country for campaigns, she and her husband found themselves in Billings, Montana before they packed up their lives and headed for Austin.
Amanda lives in Hutto with her husband, Tyler, their 1 year old son, Charlie, and their dog, Tucker. Amanda has recently discovered a deep love for podcasts. If you're looking to try something, she highly recommends Anna Farris Is Unqualified and Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People with Chris Gethard. Amanda is a self-professed HGTV and Food Network addict, and aspires to dress her son like those ridiculously unrealistic Instagram babies.
Carrie Pettengill, CWP
Carrie has spent years in the event planning business in the New York metropolitan area. From fundraisers and auctions to Sweet 16s and weddings, she has played a part in every type of event imaginable. After re-locating to the Austin, TX area, she joined Amanda to offer her expertise to the business.
She lives on a beautiful 15-acre piece of property Georgetown with her husband, Todd, and their dog, Prince, with her other daughter, Hayley, close by! When she's not planning events, Carrie is a self-proclaimed news junkie. She actually worked on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC in her 20s after receiving her MBA from The George Washington University (yep, she can kind of do it all!) She also loves all things fashion, and of course, snuggles with her grandson, Charlie!
Associate Wedding Planner
Alexis (or “Lex” as she likes to be called) joins the Trademark team from another sector of the wedding industry: photography! Lex uses her keen eye for style and detail to create incredible images capturing the beauty of a couple’s most important day. Through her journeys as a photographer, Lex found that she loves planning and organizing styled shoots, and decided that venturing into the world of wedding planning would be a logical progression!
Lex and her husband, Austin, have been best friends for 8 years, and will celebrate three years of marriage in January. They share a rescue pup named Addie who they both adore and admittedly totally spoil.
Lex is a total francophile and her obsessions include wishing carbs didn’t exist (pasta, anyone?), rosè, and all things “old-world” and vintage inspired.
