Warms My Heart

I love sharing heart warming stories and moments in my job that reaffirm the love for what I do…

In a recent blog post I recapped the wedding of Tori and John Romeo who came to me as a wedding gift from Tori’s older sister (and one of my 2009 brides) Crystal. I planned Crystal’s wedding and when her little sister got engaged she hired me as a gift to the bride and groom to give them the same assistance and guidance on their wedding day. Then just this past December I was hired by a best man who wanted his best friend and future wife to have a stress free wedding day. It touched my heart that he would be this generous to his friend and that he would come to me seeking the help they needed.

Well the most recent news is that just this weekend I was contacted by a former bride and groom who used me to coordinate their wedding two years ago. The groom’s sister is one month away from her big day and is having a really difficult time putting together all of the final details and making sure she isn’t forgetting anything. This bride is so stressed out that she basically can’t wait for the wedding to just be over! My former couple contacted me asking me if there was anything I could do to help out and smooth things out in these final weeks. I put together a custom package for them and they surprised the anxious bride who broke out in tears when she heard the news. She was so relieved to know that she didn’t have to carry the stress alone anymore and that she had a wedding planner to help her and make sure that her wedding day goes off without a hitch.

I love all of my couples and I truly do love what I do for a living. But when I have past clients who love me enough to want their siblings to have the same planning experience they did, that just puts me right over the moon. Thank you to all of my happy couples and for the opportunity to have all of these wonderful family ‘reunions’!

Love,
Shannon
