On Sunday, August 11, I celebrated ten years of being a Chicago wedding planner at Arlington International Racetrack with sixty of my family and friends. Having done over 330 weddings in Chicago, (and around the world), it was an amazing day of celebrating and reflecting on the last ten years. I was able to hug people that were there when I did my first wedding. I never would have thought that eleven years ago when I first begin to register my business that I would have the most incredible and rewarding careers I have ever had. I am so thankful for every client that has ever hired me and every wedding vendor that has ever referred me. What a fun day out at the track with my friends! I love how everyone embraced the bow ties and hats theme! Cheers to ten more years and I can't wait to see what the next ten years has in store for me.
As a wedding planner in Chicago, my job is to plan the most magical, wonderful and organized wedding day for my clients. Well, when the client is yourself the same things happen. Today I want to wish my husband a Happy 7th Anniversary. Seven years ago today I stood in a church with my husband and said our wedding vows. Afterwards we celebrated our love with family and friends. Five years later we renewed our vows (just the two of us) in Healsburg, California.
