Hello there! Wow, has it really been over 2 years since I’ve blogged on here? This might just be a huge coincidence, but it’s also the exact age of my son, haha. We’ve got baby #2 coming in April (boy name suggestions are welcome!) so I can’t promise I’ll be much better, but I can tell you that it doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy with wedding stuff!
2015 has been a busy wedding year and I still have one more wedding scheduled on Thanksgiving weekend. I was able to officiate two very special weddings this year (among many other awesome ceremonies): one for my friend Bobby and his beautiful wife Alison, who got married in Temecula, and another one for my very dear college friend Maria, and her husband, Jose. Both of these ceremonies were so personal and touching, and I was just so happy that I was invited to be a part of them.
For the last couple years I started getting more involved with event coordinating with Events by Katherine, and this has been such a wonderful experience. I’m starting to run my own weddings through Katherine which is incredibly exciting, and I have several weddings booked with her for 2016 already.
I’ve also been working on my Wedding Wire page for the officiant side of things, and have already booked 2 wedding ceremonies for 2016, which is very exciting!
On top of that, my cousin is getting married next year (yay!!!), as well as one of my best friend’s from college, and I’m happy to be “all hands on deck” for both of these. I’m excited to be able to share with both of them all of the wedding knowledge I’ve gleaned from my own events throughout the last few years, and that they both know they can call me with any random wedding questions they have. It’s so nice to be able to provide the comfort of knowing what you’re doing to people who are going through something for the first (and only) time. I’m still trying to convince one of them to have a mashed potato bar during their cocktail hour, but I don’t think I’m going to win that one…but seriously, have a mashed potato bar during your cocktail hour…you won’t regret it!
Here’s to a busy, bright, and awesome 2016 wedding year!
