After working with Andi Diamond Photography in South Tampa over the past five years, Kristin Berry noticed a void in the industry.

"I realized a resource was missing for wedding and event professionals," Berry said.

To fill the niche, she opened The Dashing Ginger last month.

"My goal is to be a high end staffing agency and in the first month, I've booked eight events," Berry said. "I haven't seen anything like this business before."

Either the red-head herself, or one of her staff members will assist vendors in anything they need, from prep work and running errands, to the wedding day itself.

"Vendors need quality help," Berry said. "The staff I hire have to be trained in weddings and events, so it's not just someone looking to make extra money."

The new business, started by the University of South Florida graduate is there to lend a helping hand, whether it's assisting photographers, videographers, florists or caterers.

"We are a resource for wedding and event professionals only, not the bride and groom themselves," Berry said.

The business also offers services in social media and web presence.

"Our social media and web services can help build a strong platform for companies and establish new contacts and clients."
