Brittany Merritt
Day of Coordinator + On Site Management

Brittany Merritt started with Tin Sparrow Events in November of 2016 as an off season intern. She has always dreamt of being part of the biggest day of everyone’s lives. When the opportunity arose, she did not hesitate to jump on board and dive right into helping out. She and Max have recently gotten married in December of 2017 and Tin Sparrow helped her truly fulfill her vision of the big day. Since the start of her internship she has shown her capabilities and strengths that have equipped her to become the Day of Coordinator in this 2018 season. By June this year, she will have received her Bachelor’s Degree in Managerial Business from Columbia Basin College. Brittany’s obsession for anything Disney, Rom-Coms and classic musicals have fueled her passion to see true love succeed.
