Meet the  Dream Team

The People Who Make It All Happen

Holly Lynch


Holly Lynch is the owner of The Season Events, a full-service wedding planning, event design, and catering company which she formed in 2007. Before beginning her own business, she worked in corporate marketing and graphic design. In 2014, The Season Events merged with a local caterer, Ray Harris, to be able to offer customers fine dining experiences at their events. The Season Events also provides bartending and transportation services for their events, and designs event-related stationery, such as invitations, wedding programs, place cards, and menu cards. Holly lives in Rome with her husband and 3 dogs.

Nicole Williams

Vice President of Events & Operations

Nicole Williams has been named Vice President of Events and Operations for The Season Events. Nicole has been an integral part of the team since the addition of catering services in 2015. Her career as an elementary school teacher offered extra time on weekends and during the summer where she assisted

The Season Events as a server in the catering department.  She quickly became an event coordinator and wedding director and eventually left teaching to join the team full time as an Event and Wedding Planner in 2017.  During the pandemic and subsequent changes to the event industry, Nicole’s professionalism, compassion for her clients, and creative thinking helped propel the company forward. As a result of her leadership during such unprecedented times, the company is now more successful and better prepared for a strong future.

Meet Eddie. Like your favorite uncle, Eddie can make you smile with one of his colorful stories! But the best way he knows to make you happy is with one of his famous smoked briskets or a grilled beef tenderloin. Eddie Digsby has been with the team since 2015 and knows his way around a grill. We love having our own “Cousin Eddie” around here to keep us all smiling and well-fed.


At their best and at your service.
