The person who had this job left the organization and I was asked to fill in temporarily. That was 6 years ago!
A lesson you’ve learned the hard way in the wedding industry.
Being nice doesn’t guarantee fair treatment.
Favorite way to spend a sunday afternoon
Curled up with my cats.
Best piece of advice to someone new to the wedding industry
It’s like the Mafia. You can get in, but you can never get out! Haha! Just kidding. My best advice is to ask questions of the veterans and learn from the answers.
Best piece of planning advice to a new bride
Don’t get to ensconced in the details. Remember, all you have to do by the end of the day is get married. If all your plans go out the window and you still accomplish that, you have succeeded.
Some words you live by
Everything happens for a reason.
Best tip for balancing work + home life
Try to minimize the crossover of the two.
