In Business

Well...Here I am! Swanky Socials is in business! I think its been about 6 weeks since my mom and I decided I should pursue entreprenuership and start my own wedding and event planning business. And boy has a lot happened in the past 6 weeks. It all started with the idea of helping my best friend throughout her planning process for her Novemeber wedding, and committing to help someone else coordinate their wedding weekend in October. I then realized it was definitely something I should pursue. For the past 2 years, I have learned a lot working in the wedding and events industry and knew that I wanted to make a career of it. The Lord has blessed me with the ability to make this happen and the timing couldn't have been more perfect.

SO, here we are! I have a logo and website under construction, and a REAL, trusting, paying client! I am excited for the next 6 months in what we will learn and accomplish and looking forward to all the big events!

Not only am I planning several weddings and events, but I am also attending a good many. I am a bridesmaid in 3 weddings this fall and have several others to attend as well. This year, football season has turned into wedding season! But I couldn't be more excited, as it is a fabulous opportunity for me to learn and grow my business.

Stay posted for continual updates on what I am doing, AND a makeover to this blog will be coming soon as well (i am a beginner!!).
