It’s this time of year when I believe most people slow down, spend time with friends and family and reflect on all of life’s gifts. That is no different for me. This is the time of year where most importantly... I have time! Its hard to explain how lucky I feel.... I am so blessed to be able to wake up and do a job I love. Who wouldn’t love working with happy couples on one of their most memorable days of their life. Not only am I able to share in their day, I am so lucky to own my own business, turn my dream into a full time career. Very rarely do I actually sit back and thing of that.... I am doing what I love to do!! And it feel fantastic! Every swollen pair of feet, Saturday spent away from my family is worth it to me.... and that is really why I want people to hire us... because we LOVE what we do and I really think it shows!
Of course this year the icing on the cake was winning the Twin Cities Icon Award and The Knots“ Best of Weddings” Award... I can not believe it!! My goal for this company was always to do what I love, be successful and have fun... and I can say.. we are doing all of that!!
It would not be fair to right a Thankful for email without mentioning my assistants.... All of them! They are my right hand gals with whom I would Never be able to do what I do. I am not sure how some people do it on their own, but the fact that I have a constant support system, an extra set of hands and a different perspective only make the “Day of” the wedding run smoother, so Andrea, Meghan, Brooke, Alyssa, Natalie and Caitlin... I am so thankful...
In addition to my lovely assistants, my husband and family are a constant reminder of what great people I have in my life.
Andy, My husband has given up numerous Saturdays to set up chair covers, move table, do last minute errands, you name it... he has done it! I love you.. and I Love that you let me do what I love! Darci, my soon to be sister in law and my brother have ran to my house in a hurry to grab items, my best friend Danielle has literally helped “Throw Hay” at a wedding and my parents spent their Valentines Day setting up tables for a big wedding we did!!
To all of our vendors, for giving us wonderful people to recommend, wonderful friends to share time with and amazing memories for each one of our couples!
And last, the reason why I am able to do what I love... Thanks to all of our couples this year.. The ones that are married, the ones that newly hired us and to all of their families. Thank you for making us family!! I feel like I get a new set of friends every year and I am so lucky!!
Merry Christmas and I hope that I can continue to share with you all of our weddings, memories and experiences for a long time!
Lots of Love, Sarah!
