Blog Spots

February 6, 2014

I am happy to report that 2014 has started off with a BANG!  I’ve taken on several new projects and clients that I am so excited about, but sadly haven’t had the time to blog lately.  So, I thought I would share a few guest blog posts I’ve worked on recently to fill you in on some of the latest event planner and wedding trends I’ve seen.

This first blog spot is with The Pink Bride, who I recently participated in a fabulous expo with.

Why Hiring a Wedding Planner Isn’t Just a Splurge

This next blog post is with Brilliant Earth about what’s trending for Southern weddings.

Stay tuned!  Hopefully, things will calm down just a bit so I get back into my blog routine.
