New Addition To Our Team - Meet Meredith

Hi y'all, I’m Meredith!



Here at Always Planned we are all about making things personal whether it’s a design you always imagined or having a hand in your wedding day; we’re here to make it all about you!

But in order for us to do that, you must know a little about us first.  So let me tell you a little about myself…

My name is Meredith Alexandra Trent and I am one of Always Planned’s newest interns.  Saying I am thrilled to be a part of this team of women would be the understatement of the year.  Ever since I came to college I knew I wanted to major in Integrated Strategic Communication, hoping to pursue a degree in Event Planning and Public Relations. I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (go Steelers, Pirates and Penguins), and am now starting my third year at the University of Kentucky.  Now some people always ask me, “how in the world did you end up at UK then,” and I tell them all the same thing. My two older sisters, Caitlyn and Cassandra, both went to UK and after coming down multiple times to visit them my heart slowly yet surely fell in love with the city of Lexington that I so proudly get to call home now. 

Although I am far from home, I am huge on family! My dad was so blessed to have been given four (yes, four), daughters and I couldn’t be happier to have the three sisters I do.  Now Lord help him when we are just a little too much to handle at time. Sometimes too much talk about fashion, coffee, weddings, sparkle and all the other crazy things that frequently come out of our mouths sway him to go golf for the day. As they say in the south, “bless his heart!”

Leaving the city I had always known to come to college seven hours from home had its bumps and bruises. But boy oh boy have I been blessed by the state and company of Kentucky.  I have met amazing people, who may drink way too much sweet tea and Ale-8, but have forever impacted my life. Kentucky gave me the opportunities to make life my own and a future that holds everything I ever thought I’d wanted. 

I could go on for days about everything I’m interested in, what I’ve done, what I hope to do and so on and so forth; but there’s a great big world out there waiting for us to explore it. So here’s a couple things that will clear up who I am and what makes me who I am:

~ My best friend’s name is Coffee
~ I can draw no more than a stick figure
~ Chipotle has changed my life more than once

~ I bleed blue and white, go CATS!
~ I was a dancer for 12 years
~ Burpees are my frenemy

~ I plan my wedding every time I get on Pinterest
~ My puppy looks like a cotton ball
~ The word “no” and I don’t get along

~ Organization and planning have always run my life
~ My heart has turned Southern
~ I am grateful for every opportunity I am given
