To all my friends, family and colleagues,
I am excited to say that I am finally moving forward with creating my own official event planning company. I have been loving working with all of my brides over the past 10 years, and helping out many clients with their events, and now it is time to take my passion to the next step. I was fortunate enough to have met some incredible photographers along my journey and was able to get 3 of them to capture my latest vision of a wedding (a second wedding). I also had very good friends and family present to help to make this vision a reality. My hope was to have my ideas put to print in blogs and publications, but I also found a contest that I decided to enter. The challenge was to see how we would marry two words FABULOUS + GRACEFUL. They want to see how we (the wedding pro) would make it one-of-a-kind. The desing must include sparkle in some form or fashion. My entry will be put up on Friday, March 23 at 12:30pm at http://www.backstagebridalblog.com/ and http://www.fabulouslywed.com/. It will be on the blogs and pages below for one week.
The details can be found here:
