This guy understood the assignment 💍

New month = new weddings! But first, did anyone do anything fun for Halloween or go trick-or-treating with their kiddos? And more importantly what did they dress up as?!

It was plain to me from this webinar that Chaz is in a word: Hilarious ⁠
⁠
His segment was funny, heartfelt, and honest. And when he said "all the vendors that I meet, I consider them friends and family" I knew we had the same mind about what it means to work in this industry. ⁠

It was at about this point in the first webinar that my pen hit the paper and I couldn't keep up. ⁠
⁠
After listening to Brie & Mariston I rewound back to the beginning of the webinar (I was watching the replay because I have a toddler, enough said) and started writing down something from every presenter that touched my heart. ⁠
⁠
But I basically wrote down everything Brie had to say! Including: ⁠
⁠
- "Food is Life" ⁠
⁠
- "As soon as my feet hit the floor in the morning I want to know what we're having for dinner" ⁠
⁠
- "Southern Comfort with a Modern Flair" (which is also pretty much the theme of my whole life) ⁠
⁠
- "The cake is good but the food is phenomenal" ⁠
⁠
And my personal favorite and new life motto: ⁠
- "Do something fun, eat something good" ⁠

@auragalleria owner, Gia, made me smile immediately on the webinar when she said hello to friends and "soon to be friends"! She emphasized that "connection is important" when working with clients and brides and we all know that couldn't be more true. ⁠

I have had the joy of working with Amber a few times. She is one of those people that makes you feel like ya'll have known each other for years after just a few mins of chatting. This instant friendship really comes through in her photos too! ⁠

07/08/2020

Over the past few weeks and now months we have seen an enormous shift in the nation's focus regarding systematic racism and social justice. I mentioned a few posts back that we as a company would not be ignoring but rather embracing this wave of change. I will be honest in saying that when I wrote that post I had no great plan, just a passionate heart. ⁠
⁠
Enter @elanawalkerevents and @harmonyweddingsnc. ⁠
⁠These two women took it upon themselves to truly step up and present TWO interactive webinars featuring vendors of color in my local community in an effort called #BridgingTheGap to encourage vendors to diversify their preferred vendor lists. ⁠
⁠
This has turned into a celebration of collaboration, networking, and good old fashioned support (ps hug your local wedding vendor, we miss weddings!) and has brought so much information and joy to my life that I could not keep it to myself! ⁠
⁠
I'm not just gonna put these vendors on a list and hope a bride asks me about them - I am going to devote the next few weeks solely to highlighting each one of these vendors on my feed. ⁠
⁠
I, as a vendor, will get lost over the next few weeks, disappear, and fade away. For that I am thankful. I am more than happy to give up the small sliver of the social media world that I have to these deserving vendors. ⁠
⁠
Each post will feature a quote from their time on the webinar or their website that gave me all the feels - words are so important to me and I hope you stuck with me through this long post! ⁠
⁠
If you are planning a wedding get ready for a big list of people who will rock your world! ⁠

If I'm being honest I have found that I create more lasting memories when I gather in small groups of friends and family. ⁠
⁠
As we slowly start to gather in smaller groups, following the guidelines set forth from the CDC and local health organizations, I hope that we can all see this as a blessing. ⁠
⁠
Slow down, gather small, make big memories. ⁠
⁠
If you are looking to scale down your current event or plan a small wedding or event and want to make sure it is special, memorable and so you - I'd love to chat. ⁠

On Trinity Sunday our Church (@churchonmorgan) invited us to do 4 things to "prioritize the fight against racism in our own hearts first" - @natalielaurensims ⁠
⁠
One of them was - "use your voice". ⁠
⁠
This is a business account for my wedding planning company but it is also (though not huge) my biggest social media platform and if you're sick of hearing and seeing subtle and not so subtle invitations to spark change you can unfollow me now. Because it's not going away. ⁠
⁠
Instead, this Monday, I'm giving you some accounts to follow and places to donate because in the past few weeks they have helped me and my heart change and grow in a way I am not ashamed to say I needed. I hope they will do the same for you. ⁠

So much of the change we desire in our hearts remains hidden from others. ⁠

Some of us are afraid it doesn't matter ⁠
Some of us are embarrassed by our own desires⁠

If you're asking yourself this question you are paying attention, in so many ways. ⁠
⁠
So many of us have already been forced to pivot in our businesses and for lots of us, we now see what we are really capable of. ⁠
⁠
How have you made changes in your business? And if you haven't yet - how can I help? ⁠

Many of our beloved downtown Raleigh businesses and venues suffered damage this past weekend and while we are saddened by this turn of events we see the pain and feel the current climate of this nation as well. ⁠

We are a community of kind and empathetic people and we are committed, now more than ever, to bring that to every decision we make in our businesses. ⁠

After the events of this weekend, I felt compelled to speak up. I know my words and thoughts are imperfect but staying silent - especially in my business - felt more out of character for me than anything. ⁠
⁠
What I am feeling - the loss and grief surrounding the events in my country and my city are certainly strong but what I am here on this earth for is to listen - with an open heart - to those who have suffered more than I will ever know. ⁠

We gathered as a group of 7 this past week and I have to say nothing gave me more joy than setting a table again.⁠
⁠
One thing I'm looking forward to with more intimate events is the overall impact of a table setting and centerpiece design with a smaller group. ⁠
⁠
Let's talk soon about what your event could look like! ⁠

If you're ready to get back in the swing of things, planing a late fall bachelorette, or just need to put some travel on the calendar to make your own light at the end of the tunnel I seriously hope you consider using a travel agent this time around. ⁠

I hopped on my Mastermind call earlier this month with a few local business bosses and I have to tell you I was blown away by the energy and efforts of Lauren from @thetravel_mechanic ⁠

So many of us are waking up in the morning with a vague sense of what day it is, where we are and have no idea what is next. You drag yourself to the coffee, slide into a desk chair, pop open the laptop, and jump into a big pool of the feeling that can only be described as, Lost. ⁠
⁠
I'm totally here for ALL. OF. THAT. But here's the only thing I'm going to ask you to do, or actually, not to do. Don't you dare get on that group chat and say "I'm sorry". ⁠
⁠
Show up in that messy bun with a little bit of sleep in the corner of your beautiful eyes and carry on, my friend. ⁠
⁠
Stand proud, and when you're ready to pivot or get back on track in your business or whatever it is we are all going to do next, call me. I want to help. ⁠

If you're wondering why I've gained 10 lbs the next time you see me it's because I'm and physically and emotionally missing allll of the workouts (read: weddings) ⁠
