It’s hard to believe that we are wrapping up our Fall 2013 wedding season and due to some big changes coming along, we’re ending our event year a little early with our final wedding at the end of this month. It’s been quite the year and I know both Jennifer and I are truly grateful for having the opportunity to work with so many lovely couples and fantastic vendors throughout the year. Since it’s been slow on the blog lately, I thought now is a good time to update our fabulous readers and followers with some fun things to come in 2014!

Baby on the Way

If you haven’t already heard the news or seen me and my growing belly recently, my husband and I are expecting our 2nd child (another girl!) this holiday season! While this means I’ll be taking a little bit of a break from the wedding planning world for the first month or two of 2014, never fear, this ship will keep sailing along and I’ll be back to meetings and planning sessions in no time. We can’t wait to meet this new little addition to our family and to introduce her to the world so keep an eye on the blog around Christmas time for some more baby news!

The New Simply Stunning Events

There are some big changes also coming to the business in 2014 (which I mentioned in my spring updates post) and I can’t wait to reveal them all! Unfortunately, re-launching your brand and company tends to take a bit longer than expected so while I had hoped to make it happen by mid-summer, it’s looking more like the end of the year. But I do promise that the changes will be worth the wait! Jennifer and I have spent the last year trying to make the planning process as streamlined and efficient as possible for our clients going forward while also re-examining our goals as a business. It’s definitely been a lengthy and eye-opening process but it’s going to mean great things for the future of this company and our future clients. New name, new logo, new planning process, new pricing, new…well everything! But of course the same great service that we are known for.

My planning partner extraordinaire – Jennifer

While Jennifer has been a part of our company for two years now, she has been integral over the last 12 months. I was immediately sold on her after learning she was a fellow Bostonian like myself, but her attention to detail, calm presence, and ability to handle a myriad of situations with ease, have truly shown that knows how to manage an event flawlessly. After proving to be an exceptional event assistant on dozens of weddings, she began training with me to learn the planning process from start to finish. She then completed several events this year on her own (with stellar reviews from her clients I might add!) and she will continue to take a more active role as a lead event planner and my planning partner in the years ahead. So while you may see a little less of me at the start of 2014 (due to the aforementioned baby coming along), you will be seeing A LOT of her! If you haven’t had the opportunity to meet and get to know her yet, you should, because she’s pretty awesome.

 

So those are my big updates for the season, clearly we have got a lot of stuff happening and great things ahead but as always we wouldn’t be here without our wonderful clients and fantastic wedding community.  I hope you’ll keep checking our blog from time to time as we feature past events and give planning tips and get ready for the new Simply Stunning Events!
