2016: Year in Review
2016: Year in Review
2016 was an incredible year of “firsts” for my business and me personally. It’s amazing to look back on all that I have achieved over the course of a year.
- First full wedding season
Thank you to all of my 2016 clients for including me in their wedding day. Your trust means the world to me. This year held a lot of gold sequins and stunning cakes! Starting my own business has been a huge leap. I had to trust my instincts and keep pushing to create the best wedding day for my clients. This past year has shown me that I have what it takes to make it in the wedding planning industry, and I can’t wait for many more years to come!
- Working at new venues
I had the pleasure of working at many new venues this year. Each venue was special, and had something unique that my clients connected with. I would like to thank all the warm and welcoming venue coordinators and sales representatives that I got to work with.
- Connecting with other wedding planners
The wedding planning community in Winnipeg is very small. I’m thankful for how supportive all the wedding planners are of each other. Every planner brings their own style and flare to wedding planning. It’s wonderful to have other planners that I trust and can refer couples to if I’m already booked.
- First time featured on a blog
Let’s just say I squealed at the top of my lungs when I was featured on Planners Lounge, Host Winnipeg, and Martha Stewart Weddings in 2016.
- I GOT ENGAGED!!!
When my fiancé got down on one knee, I received the most heartfelt and genuine surprise of my life. My best friend and love of my life wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. To top off the evening, he surprised me by hiring a professional photographer to capture our special moment and take photos of us for the rest of the night.
I’m so excited to plan my own wedding in 2017. Once I find a venue that fits the personality of me and my fiancé, everything will come together beautifully. Don’t you worry ladies, I will definitely have a day-of coordinator at my wedding. I’m not lifting a finger on my big day! I have just the girl in mind to help me out (wink wink).
Stay tuned to see more photos of my engagement!
I hope you all had the most wonderful year in 2016. Time to pop some bottles and ring in the New Year with lots of love! <3
