Starting Out: Life as a New Wedding Planner

I officially started my business in January of 2020, after recently receiving my diploma and certification for wedding planning. Don't let that fool you though, I'm no newbie to weddings. Have you seen that movie 27 Dresses? I kinda feel like her, except I'm already married and I've been to way, way more than 27 weddings. It all started in early 2018 when I was planning my own wedding. I loved every bit of it, including the stressful parts, which probably makes me sound crazy. The venue I booked happened to be right across the street from the dance studio I owned. Anyway, after my wedding in March, the venue owner was impressed with my work and offered me a job.

Around fall of that year, I accepted a job with a much more high-profile venue. Deer Ridge Estate is (without being biased) one of the most beautiful venues I've seen. Since then, I've worked more weddings than I can even remember. I do a little of everything at my job, from setting up, to decorating and even occasionally bar-tending. Thanks to this job, I've had the opportunity to meet many respectable vendors, and got an in-person look at the ins and outs of wedding planning.
