Last weekend marked the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. We have officially moved into our new studio space and have turned a new leaf! For years we have dreamt of creating a space that can envelop our sense of a welcoming heart and creative minds. A private space where we can meet with clients and have all of those personal conversations that need to happen when planning a wedding. A space that will inspire creativity and passion about each of our events. A space where we can host workshops and share our love for events and design with others. For me, it has always been easy to dream. But boy does it take hard work and sheer determination to build something you can be proud of! There literally has been blood, sweat and tears. And here we are, we're taking a giant leap and not looking back.
Before I wrote this post I was looking at some of our very first blog posts that date all the way back to 2012 and realizing how far we've come and how much we've grown! And the best part of it all is the friends we've made along the way. Whether it's our families, past clients, vendors or colleagues, we have been so blessed in our relationships. Our approach is a bit different being a husband and wife team. When we first started I was scared to tell people that we work together for fear of seeming too "mom and pop." Our family and our values are at the basis of how we run our business and every decision that we make. Little did I know that this would end up being one of our biggest assets. Where one of us lacks, the other fills in. And when we're in the midst of a fast moving event, we offer each other the sense of calm that only the other can. Matt is an incredible artist with his hands, his mind and his ability to wholeheartedly care for each couple and event. I am a dreamer and an organizer by nature with a big heart and I'm a sucker for true love. Being able to combine our talents, coupled with our love for what we do and one another, has helped us get to an amazing place in our lives.
Looking back, it's important for us to remember that success only comes from very hard work, resilience and a belief in oneself. But it's also a result of others who believe in you, support you and cheer you on along the way. So to all of our friends, family, clients and colleagues, thank you for helping us realize a dream! Please come and help us celebrate!
