A little about Richelle…
 
For the past 17 years, Richelle has been in the service industry offering dedicated, solution-focused hospitality within fine dining and private event management. She has a strong passion for making sure her clients feel heard and understood. She brings to Traine a strong understanding of both the food & beverage industries, as well as corporate planning strategies to stay within budget.

When Richelle is not working, she is with her 3 hilarious sons, building lego cities or teaching them to swim and surf at the beach. You may run into her singing at a local cafe or at church and if so, jump up and sing with her. 
 
Richelle has her Bachelor of Arts degree from Moody Bible Institute in the one-of-a-kind city of Chicago, IL where she studied Cultural Studies, Bible Theology and Philosophy. 
 
Call, text or email Richelle today for your upcoming celebration or meeting and if you are looking for a totally unique space in the heart of Raleigh, our train station is the place for you. We look forward to meeting you!

Abby Broughton

Social Media and Marketing Manager

Abby has been behind the scenes orchestrating beautiful events for over 7 years. She’s done it all–from planning, to catering and venues, rentals, florals, photography, and even working in a stationery store selling invitations. Abby knows pretty much every aspect of the events industry.

Even during her years at North Carolina State University, Abby was on numerous committees and was the Events Director for her sorority Kappa Alpha Theta. It’s no surprise that Abby ended up in the wedding industry!

Since graduating from NCSU, Abby now resides in Charleston, SC with her boyfriend, and two fur babies – Phoebe and Joey (yes, she loves the show Friends)! Abby handles all things social media for Traine. She oversees the venue’s Instagram, Facebook, Wedding Wire, and Bustld accounts. In addition, she works hard to curate, design, and execute all bridal shows, open houses, and styled shoots that the venue participates in!
