Happy 2019! In 2018, I did weddings, seminars, workshops, retreats, tea parties, a quincenera, and a memorial service. I learned about the similarities as well as the differences of these events. Having done all these, my perspective enlarged. My hope for 2019 is to build on these as I continue to add value to people and their lives. It's such a pleasure to help others bring their dreams to reality, as I do with mine.
Spring was definitely a big season for weddings and events--weddings, tea party, retreat, etc. June kicked off with a Quincenera party for a super special young woman! It was my first ever Quincenera party to plan and it turned out great!
I learned a lot from the past weddings/events and now am in the process of changing the descriptions of my services. My coordination services can now start 3 months prior to wedding day (instead of 1 month), which will allow me to get more connected with the bride and groom and their end of planning stage. Most will say that a coordinator is only needed 1 month prior to the wedding day, since everything has been planned. However, that is not true for every couple and not every plan is well done. I've found that if at all possible, take care of the details ahead of time, instead of last minute-which can add to the stress.
We will go through any "red flags" and solutions; walk through and discuss the mental/emotional side of weddings and how to overcome them so you can enjoy your day, etc. We take care of your event and we also care about you.
Brides, can you imagine having the week of your wedding be just a time for you and your loved ones, and not taking care of all the small details? Prepare well and have a day well done!
Bonus: 2 free tickets to upcoming seminars/workshops, etc.
Coordination price if booking in June-July 2018: Start @ $895.
If we book your wedding by March 2018,
Last week, 2/17.18, was our first "The Heart of A Dreamer" seminar. The idea came from several women who requested we do a workshop on creating vision boards. It turned out to be so much more than that! In fact, we didn't even do the vision boards. Instead, attendees learned the process of dreaming and came away with tools such as "declarations" we could use in our daily lives to change our thinking and attract new opportunities.
Our special guest speaker was Mary Henington, author of "The Permission to Dream" book. Mary assured us that we already possess the abilities to turn our dreams into reality, based on science and the Word of God.
I was also able to share a few of my stories as a dreamer whose heart is being transformed continuously as I pursue my dreams. It was truly a stretch and a very humbling experience. I didn't realize I needed to share my story until that day! Whew, I do not despise small beginnings!
We did an exercise that helped us discover a small piece of our life puzzle, which is a good start in creating our vision boards. To follow up with this event, we will do meet-ups to help each other grow. We plan to bring this seminar to wherever it is needed, especially in places where people need encouragement in discovering the desires of their hearts.
Not only was this event a dream come true for Mary and I, but it's also an honor to be able to donate to Declan Champers, a 5 yr.old who is on his 2nd bone marrow transplant. We believe he will live a long and purposeful life!
