Let me start this post by saying that this blog post is about me and why my definition of success is perhaps different than others and why I run my business the way I do.
Success for me is spending time with my lovely children and amazing husband while also running a business doing what I absolutely love that my heart is fully in. That means being able to pick my kids up from school and hearing every detail about their days and taking them to their extra curricular activities. It means date nights with my husband even though that usually means quite literally Netflix & chill.
Success in my business is taking on a limited number of clients and projects per month so I have time to do those things with my family. It also means because I only take on a limited amount of bookings I can really spend the time that each client deserves to craft the perfect event for them. The client experience is so important to me. I am not looking to be a wedding factory, that is not fair to my clients and certainly not my family. I don't book more than one event in a weekend. Typically I only book a few per month, depending on the complexity of the project. Success in business is when my clients email, call or text me just to tell me they picked out their wedding shoes and can't wait to show me and then still call, text or email after the wedding just because. I count it a success when my clients want to tell me the little details and the big ones too because they know how genuinely enthusiastic I am to hear it all.
I am different because maybe I care just a little too much, but that's me. I am different because I don't necessarily want to book the over the top wedding at a luxury hotel but sign me up for a challenge like making a historic venue that has walls with stories to tell (bonus points if those walls happen to be exposed brick)! I am different because I crave different and non-traditional. Don't apologize for not wanted to have a traditional wedding, let's do it! I am different because I encourage you to be different. You met at a food truck rally and want food trucks instead of a formal dinner at your wedding? Um, yes please! I am different because I consider it a goal for the designs I create to cater to each guest so they also feel welcome and comfortable at your event. I am different because my style isn't stuffy but it is still refined and elegant in it's own way.
If all of the above have you just excited as me then there's a chance we would work pretty well together. Engaged or like to party?! Contact me to help you design your next occasion.
