How I Became a Wedding Planner

I thought it may be neat to share the story of how I became a Wedding Planner.

It all started with my own wedding, which I immediately started planning as soon as my husband popped the question!

I always had a LOVE for weddings! When I was little, I would take the tablecloth off of our coffee table and grab the fake flowers out of one of my mom’s vases and play “Bride” all day long! Then as I got older, I used to buy Bridal magazines and cut out ideas and pictures that I loved and stuck them all in a scrapbook. So I had a few volumes of “wedding ideas” already at my fingertips when it actually came around to planning my own special day! :)

For the most part, I knew what I wanted and who I wanted when it came to my wedding. I already knew that I wanted cupcakes instead of a wedding cake. I knew who my DJ and hair and make-up stylist was going to be. I knew what theme I wanted to incorporate and which vendors in my area could help me realize that vision.  I think I had about 70% of my whole wedding planned (in my head) about 24 hours after I said “yes”.

But, this is certainly not an example of a “typical” wedding planning process!! Now that I think about it, it was as if I had been planning for my future wedding (and career!) years ago without even realizing it! So when I walked through the doors of my first WPIC certification course, a feeling came over me – I was where I was meant to be. It was such a wonderful epiphany and I embraced it without question!

I know, I know…kinda cheesy, right? But it’s all true! I swear!

It’s only fitting that I should leave this blog post with a couple of photos from my own wedding. So here you go:
