Amber is the Daughter of Founder Nancy Richards and her husband Ronnie. In 2017 she purchased the business, along with her Sister Shawna, allowing her Mom and Janice Gunnin-Wilson to retire. Amber has worked at Butler's Courtyard since it was founded and has had the unique opportunity to perform every task and experience BC from pretty much every point of view. She has been a Server, Event Manager, Bartender, Salesperson, Wedding Coordinator, Office Manager, Bridesmaid, Maid of Honor and even a Butler's Courtyard Bride. She has the most experience as Office Manager where she served full time for about 5 years until the birth of her twins. When they were born Amber worked from home and came in as needed to help run the business.
Her favorite part of her job is the connections you get to make. Connecting with a Bride and her family to give them the best day possible is a huge honor and a fun challenge. She also enjoys the connection and her bond with her team and with the “Friendors” that have become an extension of her family.
She has spent most of her life in the area, is a graduate of Friendswood High School and Texas State University and loves League City. “It is so great to be in a community with such deep family roots for us. My Grandfather had a grocery store here and it is so great to meet people that shopped there and hear their stories. He and my Nannie set a high bar and are really the roots of my family's legacy as business owners in this town.” Amber feels blessed to be a steward of the vision, mission and the culture that has been carefully developed over the years by Founders Nancy and Janice and says “managing the Historic property, contributing to the beautification of League City and spending my days “working” with my Sister and Teammates, that are now like little sisters to me, truly is a DREAM come true!”
