The beautiful, challenging, sometimes exhausting, often addicting and completely uplifting thing about producing events in the wedding + events world is that we are, in fact -> in the business of creating extraordinary celebrations for extraordinary people. Because to do what we do, we need extraordinary. It’s that simple. From our clients to our collaborating partners to each and every one of us and the magic we bring to the drawing board. It’s all extraordinary or it doesn’t pass go. ✨
That’s why the choice to continue education isn’t only necessary, it is a vital, smart, fulfilling one. It also needs its very own kind of extraordinary so that those who participate find more of that knowledge, insight, creative ideation, logistical know-how, business sense and artistic magic that in fact, leads to extraordinary. In a nutshell, that is the Engage! Luxury Wedding Business Summits that my husband and I had the pleasure + privilege of attending last week in Sicily. It is when we are surrounded by like-minded creatives and immersed in the very foundation of what it takes to make what we do that much ** more extraordinary that we grow and learn and gain confidence. I can’t say enough how much this smaller group of people really brought every bit of extraordinary to the conversations and moments together while the team responsible for bringing the conference created the structure within which we all flourished and celebrated.
Now, one week later, I bring all of that back into the world of events and weddings for our clients. I can’t wait to share the magic and knowledge that came to me during my time in Sicily with each and every one, and to continue to grow my business so that we keep reaching for the stars✨
Thank you to everyone that made this week so special! 🙏🏻🤍
