It was the summer of 2009, and I had never planned a wedding before. Two of my friends were getting married. They had $1,000 and an empty lawn at a church in Glendora. They asked me to bring their wedding vision to life, and I said yes…
Now, I had always been creative and organized (two traits I find essential in this business), and I had planned various birthday parties and church/family events. But I’ll be honest, I had no idea what I was doing.
It was a dessert potluck wedding, filled with jam jars, daisies, DIY twinkle lights, and youth group furniture covered in white sheets from Ross. It was a long, hard, HOT day. But friends, it was magical. When the sun set, the candles glowed and the people gathered…and it was beautiful. At that wedding, 2 people asked if I would do their weddings. I said yes, and business was born.
At the time , I had no idea this was the start of my career. It was just a fun hobby business to earn some extra cash. By word of mouth, in that first year, we did 14 weddings. It was a whirlwind. Over time, I added in floral design services, took on more clients, and began building a team.
Now here we are, years later, producing incredible events all over the world…and I couldn’t find any more joy in what we do.
I love that I can be creative, authentic, and innovative.
I love that I get to work for myself.
I love that I can support my family doing what I love.
I love that I can educate fellow professionals to empower them to pursue their dreams.
I love what I do.
Thank you, for being a part of this journey, friends. Your love and support mean the world to me and my family!
