If the shoe fits …

Bridal shoes, bridesmaid shoes

The saying goes, “If the shoe fits, wear it!” So, I’m officially wearing it!

I couldn’t be more excited to start my journey as the new owner of Southern Fete. I am so blessed that Valerie established such a recognized brand across the state and delivered the ultimate “Southern Fete” experience to so many brides. She will continue to be a valued mentor, and I am honored that she trusted me to continue the Southern Fete legacy.

There’s no doubt that being a wedding coordinator is hard work, but there are so many moments along the way that make it all worth it. Taking the burden off the bride so that she (and let’s be honest – everyone else) can fully enjoy her day is what I’m here to do.

With every new journey comes challenges, but I couldn’t be more ready to see what’s ahead of me!

Then we’ll kick back up for our fall season!! Here are a few highlights from May! I still can’t believe we’re already in June.

Time seems to fly by these days. I thought I’d start chronicling little highlights from the past month and remind myself of things I’m grateful for. It’s so easy to blaze through life and forget! To be honest, when I first tried to think of what happened this month, it seemed pretty average. Taking a few minutes to think reminded me of the exciting moments! Sooo here goes! Enjoy!!

Launched my personal project Val & Words. Just added four more books today!

Showered one of my very best friends Jenny with a baby shower for Judah Lee.

Received Best of Weddings for Events and Invitations!!

Celebrated Valentine’s Day with my love.

Started running again.

Saw the biggest ranunculus I’ve ever seen.

Watched/helped one of my closest cousins get married!

And a few things I’m looking forward to in March!

1. Putting on 4 amazing weddings and 1 beautiful bridal shower.

2. Practicing ballet for exercise.

3. Spending time with my BF who’s coming in from Cali.
