Years in the making, Unforgettable came to be one evening on the back porch of owner Dawn's home as she and her husband sat with a glass of wine discussing her lifelong passion for hospitality. It was at his suggestion that the name Unforgettable was chosen. Time is so short and we rush around doing, that sometimes we forget to stop and truly appreciate those important moments in time; to truly make them unforgettable. Raised in a family centered around hospitality, Dawn recalls many times hearing her father comment on service received at different establishments or events, saying, "Now that, was unforgettable service!" So it just seemed to be the perfect name.
But still raising young children and wanting to focus on enjoying that time with her family, the concept was set aside. For now.....
The timing hit. It wasn't exactly the timing Dawn and Dylan had planned for the adventure to begin, as their children were still in school. However, it must have been meant to be. Name was filed, business accounts opened, and staff was hired and trained. Small for sure but we had a dream and a goal and were ready to work hard together. Unforgettable Service was born!
After 5 years of mostly word of mouth business, learning more about Facebook and taking a 3 year Small Business Management course, things really began to change for Unforgettable Service. And we grew by leaps and bounds! At the advice of the business advisors, Unforgettable Service became Unforgettable Service & Events, LLC and moved into an entirely different realm of service. We still provided the highest quality wait staff and bartending service, but now we ventured even deeper into Dawn's true passion - hospitality and production. Creating moments that make people smile.
2017 brought significant changes to not only the company but also the personal lives of those at the heart of the company. Damon Garner, our senior event director who has been with Unforgettable since 2013, lost his father in December of 2016, 8 months later Dawn's husband lost his 4 year battle with cancer. Needless to say, it was a year of trial by fire for both driving forces of our company. But we forged through and have come to the other side stronger as a company family and wiser as managing partners.
a new year, a new season, a new location,
and a new vision for the future of our company.
Unforgettable will always hold a strong place in our hearts as it was created out of love and belief in ones dreams, passions and talents for making others happy. It was built on, and out, of love. It will always be our over-arching parent company, looking out for the future and guiding us into new and brilliant adventures.
As such, Unforgettable now operates as
2 separate entities to better serve our clients.
We are happy and excited to introduce you to:
DxD Events and Oregon Bartenders
