Life Updates as a Mom and Business Owner
I truly cannot believe what a wild ride this last year has been and the path this company has taken me down. I am so appreciative and honored to have collaborated with everyone I have connected with thus far. My career and business have been nothing shy of the dream I had always envisioned! So thank you to everyone who has made this last year so incredible!!
Speaking of envisioning dreams, my most memorable and breathtaking dream came to life on October 24, 2021. As much fun as it is to plan and coordinate weddings for other couples, I was finally able to plan my own! (Planner turned bride was SO different but in a good way)
I got my moment to be a bride first-hand, and saying that it was wonderful would be an understatement. Tyler and I were able to tie the knot in October at Beavertail Lighthouse in Jamestown, RI. We were so grateful that our close family and friends were able to come, even in the mix of all the craziness happening in the world.
Our daughter Charlie is now 17 months old, she is constantly on the move. She has such a big personality and can be quite funny! Liam is almost 11 years old now, and is just the best big brother ever! He also continues to make everyone around him so proud through his many accomplishments in his day-to-day school life! But our family continues to grow! I am currently pregnant with baby #2 and due in early July! We’re over the moon to share the news with you and cannot wait to meet our newest bundle of joy! Yay!!!
On the business side of things, we’re growing! We have booked out 2022 completely and I just opened the books for 2023 weddings! We’re really excited to be working with new clients and taking on new adventures as a team! We will be more consistent with our blogs, Facebook, and Instagram posts as we move into our busy season, and we hope that if you ever have any concerns, comments, or questions that you’ll feel comfortable to reach out! Growing means progressively moving in a direction that we want to take you guys through; Our team now consists of two really great, educated, and talented workers that know the wedding industry!
That said, I hope you were able to find this post well and look at this as a pivotal point in our business as an open communication chain that you’ll use if you ever need us!
