BIG NEWS for celebrate!!

I have some very, very exciting news to share! Jenna & I have been approached by a television production company to star in our very own reality T.V. show!! We met with the film crew and the producer last week and are thrilled to say our meeting went very well!
What better way to showcase our strong love and passion for planning weddings? The show will be showcasing our glamorous and NOT so glamorous lives of being wedding planners. It will be based on the weddings we are planning, client consultations and the actual wedding day event. We will also be filmed on our personal lives outside of work and the experiences we go through. We can't be more thrilled and hope that once it airs everyone will watch!!
We will keep you posted on the status and details of the show.
Any suggestions for a fabulous name for the show???

Job Shadow Thank You

In October we had the wonderful experience of having a great girl, Katie, job shadow us. It was so fun to showcase what Jen and I love to do--Plan Weddings!!!

Katie wrote us this amazing "THANK YOU" note and I just had to share it:

Dear Ms Jenna Jones:

Thank you so much for allowing me to complete my job shadowing assignment with you. I learned so much about planning weddings and the requirements needed to become a wedding planner. I especially enjoyed being able to help at the ceremony and telling everyone when to go. I had such a great time. I will always remember how great you were mentoring me. You did such an excellent job answering all my questions. I really hope I can shadow you again soon.

In the next few months I will be making critical decisions about my future, and I really wanted you to know how much your insight means to me. Thanks again for taking the time to work with me.
