It has been so very long since I have blogged! Thankfully, my wedding and event business has kept me so busy it’s been almost impossible to do anything else but take extra special care of my brides!
Recently, I collaborated on a styled shoot and open house to market a gorgeous new venue in North Georgia called 2400 On The River. Styled by the uber creative Blue Eyed Yonder, and shot by an incredibly talented professional, Vue Photography, gave way to landing in one of the publications I have had on my bucket list..Weddings Unveiled!
I recall the afternoon I received the images in my Dropbox file and truly wept with satisfaction and pure joy!
Designing usually comes from a vision in my head which hopefully will transpose through the eyes of the client or the lens of the photographer. When it happens, it is MAGICAL!!!! Most of us as professionals constantly reach for higher goals for ourselves. Learning anything and everything new in my industry is not only exciting, but definitely challenging. The day I am unable to learn anything else is the day I lay down my flower cutters and walk away. I always want to remain teachable and open to the next new thing. The professionals in my circle are so very generous with their knowledge and talents, which is ever so refreshing in comparison to other groups I have come in contact with throughout my 14 years of creating. There is more than plenty of work to keep all of us busy and succeeding! I don’t see my peers as competition, but as companions on a similar journey. Some days they reach back and pull me forward and other days I do that for them. Kindness in this crazy business is like food for the hungry…completely necessary!!
I love what I do and do what I love ….following my passion is not only a blessing, but the reason I enjoy my work and all of my clients so very much! I am humbled and honored for this feature in Weddings Unveiled Fall 2014 publication! Once again I learn that hard work and perseverance does pay off!!
