It feels like ages since my last blog post!
I apologize as I would’ve liked to post sooner, but this year has started off with a real bang. After meetings with new clients and others in the throes of full planning for their upcoming celebrations, I’ve had to prioritize and put my energy where it is most needed - my clients come first.
I so enjoy the in person, event planning work that this life affords me. Working closely with couples and vendors, and seeing the day come together is what I love most - it's what I thrive on. The ‘business’ side has proven a constant learning curve and adventure, but it has given back more returns than I could have anticipated. As an independent business owner and operator, I am constantly learning and leaving myself open to new opportunities and ways to grow.
One of these endeavours was an appearance I recently made on Dinner Television. I was grateful to have my dear friend, Marielle TerHart along with me to snaps some shots during the taping where I spoke with Bridget Ryan about upcoming wedding trends.
The evening was so much fun! I have known Bridget for many years, so it was a joy to reconnect and talk about the wedding industry. We spoke about many of the trends I mentioned in my a previous post. I had a blast doing the segments, but my most favourite part about talking live with Bridget was being able to highlight some of Edmonton’s finest vendors and their work.
For the segments, Cory Christopher provided a luscious green bouquet and centrepiece, which lasted for over a week after the taping (thanks for letting me keep them, Cory!). NEAT Rentals set up a boho chic lounge space as a backdrop for my chat with Bridget. Delica Bridal provided us with three gowns from Truvelle (their dresses are STUNNING!). And of course, the Art Gallery of Alberta provided the ultimate venue for the filming.
