I find myself smiling on the inside when I see cute elderly couples holding hands. Whenever I am at a
restaurant I choose a window seat, because I get to gaze out of the window, at the elderly gentlemen who open the car door while his wife waits patiently for him to make it to her side. Without realizing it I have drifted to the future
and wonder if that will be my sweetie and I when I’m 65.
Why did I choose to become a wedding planner…I get to see the couple’s story from the beginning. And, who doesn’t love a happy ending.
After taking on the role of wedding planner while planning my own wedding I realized the importance of hiring one. Even then the thought never crossed my mind to become one. Within my circle I became the go to person for all things party, as well as, the person to transform spaces. It wasn’t until three years ago I realized I wanted to turn a hobby that brings me so much pleasure into a full-time career.
What is it about weddings that I enjoy so much – creating what the couple perceives as the impossible. Yeah, there are times when I have to deal with bridezilla, the fire breathing lady – what makes it all worthwhile. When she is so overjoyed and thanks me for taking the time to listen to her wants and needs; and doing so with a smile each and every time she calls.
planner it chose me. I get to laugh, cry, and share with the bride and her family, as she writes her next chapter. I get
share in the romance 365 days a year, and a different take on the brides story each and every time. And, boy do I ever enjoy what I do.
As mothers we tell our daughters that prince charming does exist, and we count down the minutes until it’s her turn to take the journey down the aisle where her prince is waiting. I took the path to become a wedding planning, because I want the bride to relish in the moment without worry. And, to know that she has a friend in her corner that's up for the challenge. After all, as mothers we count down the minutes, becasue we want to share in the moment, and hiring a wedding planner affords every mother that luxury.
