As the daughter of a college football player and as a student during the Florida State Seminoles’ most glorious football years, Tracie always thought she was going to work for the National Football League. During college she worked in the athletics marketing department planning events to gain experience, and then in grad school, was thrilled to get a position with the reigning Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers and thought “this was it!”
By the end of the season she realized she enjoyed being a fan much more than an employee and wanted to get as far away from the business side of sports as possible. She took a position working with brides and grooms at A La Carte Event Pavilion, where she worked with hundreds of engaged couples and was truly inspired by finding ways to personalize every wedding to the couple’s indivdual style.
Now, ten years later, Tracie’s stylish expertise and relatable sophistication has made her a trusted consultant to business leaders, professional athletes and high society. Tracie and her team design and produce personalized weddings in Tampa, FL, and are available to travel to wedding destinations worldwide.
Tracie has attained the Certified Special Events Professional, (CSEP), the hallmark of professional achievement in the special events industry. It is earned through education, performance, experience, and service to the industry, and reflects a commitment to professional conduct and ethics. The CSEP designation is awarded by the International Special Events Society (ISES) and its Certification Committee. Tracie has also received industry accolades, including Meeting Professionals International’s prestigious national “30 Under 30” award and was named MPI Tampa Bay Area chapter’s “Rising Star” in 2006. Blu Magazine recently featured Tracie Domino as one of Tampa Bay’s Ten Leading Ladies of 2011.
Tracie is involved in the Tampa Bay community as the seven-time chair the Outback Bowl Gridiron Gala, one of the most highly regarded business/social events in the Tampa Bay area. She is on the Leadership Council of The Junior League of Tampa, a member of Leadership Tampa Alumni, Meeting Professionals International, and the national board of directors of the Florida State University Alumni Association. Tracie provides pro-bono services to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and Southeastern Guide Dogs.
Tracie graduated summa cum laude from Florida State University with an Honors degree in Public Relations and has a Master’s Degree in Public Relations Studies from the University of South Florida.
In case you were wondering, Tracie is still a huge fan of the NFL and rates her status as back to back champion of her annual football pool as one of her proudest achievements.
