Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from? Family? Pets? Hobbies? Etc.
I live in Warrenton, VA and am a new business owner of 6 months and am loving it! I live in Warrenton, VA, but my dream is to move to Charleston, SC. I have a 2 year old girl- Piper Jean (Poppy) and a 4 year old boy, Grayson and a wonderful husband, Adam. We have a mini dauschund named Bean! She looks like a pinto bean. I can’t seem to get my hands out of the wedding industry… I love it so much! I am addicted to hot yoga.
Tell us about your business. How did you start your business and why? What do you do? Would you go back and do anything differently?
I’ve worked in the wedding industry since 2009. I started out as an Events Manager for a wedding venue and eventually added catering sales into the mix as well. After I had my son, I took time to just be a mom, but I was always planning a wedding or event for friends. The “work” itch came back and I decided it was time to start my own business for the flexibility of working around my kids.
Has it been a smooth road? Have you encountered struggles that you could share?
So far it’s been smooth sailing! Figuring out content, pricing and packages has been a constant work in progress, but it’s all coming together!
What do enjoy the most about what you do? What do you enjoy the least?
I LOVE working with my couples. The actual day of the wedding is the HARDEST- it’s physically a ton of work, but well worth it to see my happy couples!
What inspires you?
Color and my couple’s love stories. I love incorporating elements of their love story into the design details of the wedding day.
What is your farewell piece of advice for someone interested in starting their own business?
DO IT! 100%! You work for a large chunk of your life. Finding your passion and seeing your business thrive is so rewarding!
