Happy October to you!!
This is my favorite time of year ????. Cozy clothes, Halloween and cooler temps. Not to mention incredibly fall colors. I always look so forward to this time of year!
We have a few amazing things going on, so I wanted to share.
New Podcast Episode
After a long, pandemic-induced wedding drought, the industry is busier than it has been in decades — and venues, vendors, planners and creatives everywhere are feeling the squeeze.
According to The Wedding Report, there will be an estimated 2.5 million weddings in 2022, which is the most the U.S. has seen since 1984.
How can you be a positive part of this wedding boom?
On episode 3 of The Art Of Celebrating Podcast, my co-host, Akeshi Akinseye, and I discuss how clients can work with their vendors to make their celebration extra special.
We also share five tips for couples who are going through the planning journey to making sure their celebration process is positive and enjoyable. Listen here.

Bloom ’n Toss captures the power of repurposing healthy flowers and plants by rescuing them and placing them into the hands of the elderly, the visually impaired, the sick, the cognitive and physically disabled, veterans, those in hospice and many other groups —spreading joy and elevating the spirits of thousands of deserving people.
It was so awesome for our incredible couple Britley + Peter to donate their gorgeous floral after their amazing Beatnik Chicago wedding. Learn more about Bloom 'N Toss here.
