As you know, I’m a wedding planner, but do you know why I love what I do? Today I want to share that with you and how it came to be!
I still remember the first time a bride came up to me and told me, â€œYou made all my dreams come true!â€ I was only a teenager at the time and I was still trying to pin point what I wanted my career to be. My heart was just beginning to lean toward the new creative world of weddings, that I had just recently discovered! I learned I could actually make a career out of making someoneâ€™s dream a reality and have a hand in a memory that they would remember for a lifetime! Iâ€™ve always had a wild and creative imagination and I loved seeing all the pretty little details of an event come together to create a truly classy look!Â
Before then, I didn’t even know a job planning weddings even existed. I learned that this, along with other event, restaurant, and hotel jobs were classified as hospitality jobs. It peaked my interest that a hospitality major was actually a real college major. I had so much fun that I finally, after two years debating what I wanted to do, started attending Gwinnett Technical College with a major in hospitality! I absorbed so much knowledge and I enjoyed the field even more. I then went onto transfer with the same major at Georgia State University.
It’s been four years that I’ve been out of school and after working as a banquet manager, wedding director, event assistant, floral assistant, banquet server and having a quick stint designing, making and selling ring bearer pillows on Etsy, I decided in 2013, to venture out on my own and make my dream of becoming an entrepreneur, with my own wedding planning business, happen!
In the years since I discovered this passion of mine, I still enjoy this classy little world of weddings and special occasions! Itâ€™s my job to make people feel taken care of, filled with joy, happiness, laughter and to make them feel special! This is what fires my heart up and makes me happy! I hope I can have the opportunity to do the same for you!
