With almost 16 years with my company, I can say with certainty that planning celebrations with my clients is truly something I love doing.
Seeing the joy and the smiles amidst their beautiful day while they are surrounded by love truly is a wonderful feeling. And a satisfying one too. In fact, if I’m being honest few things compare to the immense burst of pride and accomplishment I feel when a client is over the moon. I find it’s one of the things I love to work so hard for – that moment when they look at me and just have such happiness in their eyes! I love it. 🤩
Last Saturday I had the privilege of planning and producing the wedding of a young woman who I first met when she was a bridesmaid in her sibling’s wedding (that I also planned). Last Saturday was HER wedding day -> and she was a radiant bride! She is one of the kindest, sweetest humans, as is her wonderful husband. Her big, beautiful family is just awesome. They love one another wholeheartedly and it just feels good to be around them. ✨ I have had the privilege of sending every one of these siblings down the aisle and it’s truly one of my favorite stories to tell.
I’ve had the honor of working with extended family and have proudly and with much love been with 8 couples on their wedding day in this incredibly awesome (and very large! Lol) famiglia. 🤍 Every time they call with the news of a wedding and ask me to be part of it, I am so thankful.
Auguri, Rosella & Antonello! THANK YOU for bringing me with you on your wedding planning journey. I can’t wait to see all that you accomplish as you continue to move forward in your life!
Special shout-out to Rosella’s incredible Mom, who is one of the strongest, most graceful, funny, and inspiring women I’ve met. ✨
