Hoping for Lucky 13

Happy New Year!  All in all, 2013 is off to a great start!   Amazingly, things haven’t quieted down…even during the “slow season”!   Last week we received word that we are the recipient of 2 awards…WeddingWire’s Bride Choice Award and The Knot Best of Weddings 2013.  We are so appreciative of the recognition and honored to work with such great clients and vendors.

I feel like I am writing my thank you speech for a “People’s Choice Award” but I just want to thank all my brides and grooms for voting for The Day Of and for making 2012 our best year yet!  I am my boss…so the only person holding me accountable is me (sometimes I think that is tougher than having a real boss).  Which is why these awards are even more meaningful. They are the validation that what I am doing works.  That my clients are satisfied with me, my services and the people I am fortunate to work alongside. Our clients’ recognition is the best award of all!  As a services company, our reputation is all we have.

While word of mouth and vendor recommendations have been our mainstay, in 2012 we ventured into the social media world.  While this is a significant effort, it is my pride and honor to share amazing events, experiences and ideas.  So…thank you from the bottom of my heart to all clients who have taken the time out of their busy, newlywed lives to write about their experiences with The Day Of.

Having been a full service event planner for nearly 10 years, I chose “day of” as my focus.  I love what I do.  I love learning my clients plans, hopes and dreams.  I love seeing things and making suggestions that they may not have otherwise thought of.  I love that I am able to offer to my clients the benefits of an experienced full service planner at an affordable price.  We are invested in our clients and at the end of the day, we can run all the social media out there but what we do is based on an amazing relationship, communication, experience and a good sense of humor doesn’t hurt.  Here’s to an amazing 2013!
