Letting you in on a little secret…

Photobucket

{our wedding ring + dates :)}

While many of you know me as the best.wife.ever, a furry mama , a domestic queen and an expert in cohabitation bliss, there IS something that you don’t know. (yet!)

(okay, okay, you can stop holding your breath)

I love planning events + watching people in love. And I love any excuse to throw a good party. And this passion has led me to take a leap of faith to pursue a wedding planning (part-time) career! With experience as graphic designer, wedding reader, professional bridesmaid and, most importantly, an event planner for my own big day, about a year and a half ago I decided to explore a possibility as a day-of wedding coordinator.

And I am happy to say, that I haven’t looked back since! I have met some wonderful brides (who are now great friends!) through this process and have been honored be a part of helping their wedding dreams come true!

So that’s a little insight into my crazy ‘other life’ (as hubs likes to call it). I know that I haven’t mentioned this before, but I needed to save material for when I got boring again I just wasn’t ready to share it with my small corner of the internet yet. And I wasn’t sure whether or not this idea would even take off. But it has and I could not be happier!

So please wish me luck in this (semi) new venture. And if you know a bride in Columbus who is looking for a super awesome day-of wedding coordinator, I am their girl!

Thanks for the love, pretties. And happy Friday! Hope you all have fabulous weekends!


Mine will be spent coordinating a wedding for a terrific couple! I am so excited to be able to share their big day!

  2. GOOD FOR YOU! I just opened a coffee shop and once we're up and running and turning a profit I have every intention of going into wedding planning! I blog about it all the time...it's probably annoying! Have so much fun and I'm totally jealous! :o)
