To give our couples, current and prospective, a better idea of who we are, what makes us tick, our likes and dislikes, why we’re in this industry etc., we’re going to feature a SHE team member every other Friday here on the blog.  And what better way to welcome Julia to the team than have our #fridayintroductions start off with her!  For her bio and professional background, click here.  To find out her favorite color, cat lover or dog (or both!), etc., keep reading!

What brought you to wedding planning/How did you begin? My first job out of college was executing all events at the country club then I moved into their event planning and sales role where I fell in love with weddings
What is your favorite part about the planning process? I love the relationship I build with the bride and groom and seeing their excitement and love for each other. 
What is your favorite part about the wedding day? The First Look. The moments leading up to when the bride and groom see each other for the first time, and the way the groom always looks at his bride melts me!  
Where do you gather inspiration? In everyday, as general as that sounds, in fashion, architecture, photos and travel
What advice can you give to couples planning their wedding? Breathe!  Remember, it takes time to accomplish all of the details. And remember to enjoy the process! 
Favorite color? Green
Favorite food? Mexican- guacamole, tacos….I love it all 
Favorite cocktail? Vodka, Soda with extra lime 
Favorite sport…team? My college team 😉 USC Gamecocks! 
Dog or cat? Dogs all the way.
Guilty pleasure? Chocolate, and who am I kidding desserts in general, I have a problem! 

It has been quite a year!  Well, add a couple more months, since this reflective little blog post goes back to April 2014.

A lot has changed for me over the past 14 months, which put some changes into motion at SHE as well. Change is good and I couldn’t be happier!  If you’ve been hanging out with us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, you know all of these great things already, but if not, stay tuned…

April 2014 | Welcome Baby Marlowe! (image courtesy Janet Howard Studio)marlowe

This little nugget made her debut at the end of April, just 7 days after a double wedding weekend.  A wedding Friday, a wedding Saturday, I swear I thought I was going to be having a baby on Sunday!

She has been such a blessing.  Her big sisters, Stella and Harper, couldn’t be happier or more helpful!

Merry Christmas | Hello Dolly! IMG_1184

Because 4 women in the house just wasn’t enough…Santa brought the kiddos a puppy!  Meet Dolly the Goldendoodle!  So it must be said that I’m not big into pets.  I mean, I have enough going on, right?!  My sweet friend (you know who you are!) says [often] that she recommends I get a chia pet if I really felt I needed a dog.  Her commentary isn’t unfounded.  This pup stemmed from Stella’s animal loving personality, and lots of begging for a doggy.  We have spent several pennies on Dolly’s training, and I can say now, I can’t imagine our little family/circus without her!  She really is a great pup!!

I’m sure you’ve heard about our awesome team!  It has been so incredible working with Erin, Courtney, and Brianne over this past year.  These ladies are simply amazing!  Life is such a balance, of the things you have to do and the things you love to do.  I believe we can all say that working in this industry is something we love to do.  I feel so lucky to have a team that I trust completely to represent SHE and all that we do for our clients.

New Year | New Branding

I’ve been working hard over the past few months to create a website and brand that represents the company as we are now.  A lot has changed since the days of just me running the show! So we are saying so long to our trusty logo and bringing in a fresh new twist.  I hope you like it!
