I won't lie - I've been putting this off. Mostly because I can't seem to find a happy place between a nicely written work blog & a personal blog. I feel confident that if I make it mostly work related you won't come back. But I've been afraid to do somewhat personal because I have a hard time not saying inappropriate things. But I'm going to try and do both anyways (which I know is frowned upon in the professional world but I'm willing to take the risk).
I am going to do my best to write at least once a week about something fairly interesting. Whether it be tips for the bride, stories about my crazy family or to showcase a recent event I'll be posting away, so check back often!
I'll start with this past weekend. The team split up sending one crew to Cartersville, GA to run a Family Fun Day for a corporation while the other crew enjoyed the beautiful view of Lake Keowee while stringing 5,000 mini lights in a clear top tent that basically felt like a greenhouse in the bright hot sun. You just have to love out of town events because it really doesn't matter how many list you make and check off, you are bound to forget something! This time it was not the big ladder, we remembered that guy. But the small ladder that allowed us to do things like hanging drapes.. now that was a different story. This gave me the opportunity to relive my cheerleading days..... here we are:
The strange guy holding me up is my husband... I had no idea he was taking these pictures. This could have been a slightly embarrassing moment for us but thankfully no other vendors were there at 8:00am. We installed lights, drapes, chandeliers, provided our really cool tree stump bar and then spiced it up with sequin runners, copper lanterns, and lots of candles! It turned out simply stunning. The Lakehouse at the Cliff's Communities is a great venue! And we could not have ordered more perfect weather. This wedding was especially important to me as it was my brother in laws. Rachel (the new sister in law) and I worked together for quite a while & I think we pulled off her vision quite well! It was a nice mix of rustic, yet elegant. These pictures are just from my I Phone - I'll be sure to track down the photographer and post the official ones later on! I also failed to get any of the couple! Shame on me! They of course were gorgeous, as always!
A big thank you to all the awesome vendors we worked with!
