December 30, 2016
If I had to use one word to describe my 2016 it would be “WOW”. I fooled even myself when I was able to quit my day job in July. It has been a crazy, faith driven ride so far and I am loving it. Some days I work 12 hours, look around and wonder how I ever managed this with a full time job. I truly feel I am able to love and serve my brides the way I was always supposed to now that I am full time with this endeavor.
2016, what a ride; we had a venue close down unexpectedly and I had to relocate two weddings. One we had almost a year until their wedding date but the other one we had 3 weeks. That was almost as stressful as relocating Danielle and Jared’s wedding (ironically the venue that saved their wedding day is the one that screwed so many couples. Ugh, Elk Manor, I am still mad at you). We had a hurricane move up the coast for a St. Michael’s wedding. Many thanks to Gourmet by the Bay for their quick actions to ensure a gorgeous wedding day! I worked with some of the best vendors in the industry this year (along with a few choice characters that I wouldn’t ever, in one million years, recommend again). The brides this year were so amazing, so in love, and enjoyed every single moment of their wedding days. I was able to provide floral design services for the first time this year! I had many shoots & weddings published this year. I expanded my design work with brides that trusted me completely and loved the end results. I love this job. I really truly love this job. Here are just some highlights from the year/the weddings the photographers shared their photos with me ;)!
I have one more wedding in 2016 and that is New Years Eve. Man, oh man…what a year! I am so excited to move full steam ahead in 2017. I am so thankful for each and everyone of you that trusted me on your biggest day!
