Opportunity

I never would have imagined that planning my wedding would open doors. It goes without saying that I was a VERY hands on bride. I was connected to just about every single detail leading up to the day. Where I was finally able to let go, sit back, ride it out and enjoy the moment was on the actual day of my wedding.

I had hired an amazing event planning company A Savvy Event and I knew that I had nothing to worry about. That they would do a great job making my wedding run smoothly and take care of everything without a hitch. They did.

Throughout the process, I worked very closely with the owner of the company, Kelly. Our meeting always ended with what I would consider an idea explosion. We had similar taste, our visions were always on track with one another and she is the quintessence of taste, class, style and design.

Since the wedding, we’ve remained in close contact and she started referring her brides to me to work on custom projects for their weddings. Everything from wedding programs to custom designed décor pieces. It has been a blast.

Recently, I’ve joined the A Savvy Event team as their blog writer and Creative Director. I'm thrilled to work alongside such a talented team of individuals.

However, I am still working full time at my other job at a nonprofit which I also love. For the past few weeks my life has been about finding a balance and I think I’ve found it. I make time for A Savvy Event blogging in the early mornings by waking up extra early, sitting in my home office with a cup of coffee and working. It has actually been quite enjoyable!

I make time for Hello Cupcake and custom wedding projects in the evenings. I’m in project mode from around 6 PM to 11 PM (ok…oftentimes I’m actually working till 1 AM) but getting things done. While it’s tiring at times, the work I do for Hello Cupcake and A Savvy Event truly is enjoyable for me. There is a quote that comes to mind “If you love what you do, you'll never work another day in your life”. I think this rings true here. The wedding industry is something that I love, that I’m happy I will get to be a part of long after my own wedding.
