Why I love my job

March 7, 2010  |  Southern Fete News

It’s days like to today when I remember exactly why I do what I do. It happens more than I think but today brought tears to eyes. I’ve been engaged for about 5 days and already have learned so much more about what my brides face throughout there engagement. I plan on posting all about it soon! This weekend I was working on my own wedding inspiration board and realized how hard is it as a bride to bring everything together.

When I book a wedding, I talk with the bride about what she sees for her wedding. She shows me through pictures, words, feelings etc. I filter those ideas and create a vision. Ever since I started this, the response has been great:

“It all looks FANTASTIC! Seriously this is amazing!!!…Valerie you NAILED IT!”

Bride S

“I LOVE IT!!!!!! I think everything came together perfectly! I am so excited!! Haha It’s starting to come together :)”

Bride K

Today I sent the third inspiration board and vision to a bride and got back this response:

“OMG!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!! You did a such great job Valerie.  I think it’s fabulous and I’m super excited. It’s so perfect, I just want to keep putting exclamation points in this email!

Again, fantastic job Valerie!! You really captured it and I can’t wait to see it come to life January 22!”

Bride J

I immediately teared up! I want my brides to have the most special day of their lives and the thought that I am able to translate their desire into a full vision of what they have dreamed of is my favorite part of this job. Brides, thanks for letting me be a part of your planning and special day!!
