2018 year in review

How are we here already?! I don’t know about you, but this year seemed to fly by. Not sure if you noticed, but we actually fulfilled one of the resolutions we have been making for years and failing….we actually BLOGGED! Our girl Emily has been keeping us on track so really she should get the credit.

January and February
We started the year off promoting our sister company Aiden & Grace at the Columbus Bridal show and finding her a new home. 2017 was so amazing we needed more space! More on that next. February, we celebrated all my favorite gals who help make MMJ a success in our Galentines shoot. You can see more of the shoot here.

March and April
Aiden and Grace got a new home!! If you haven’t come for a visit, please reach out. We LOVE giving tours.

We also got to do two fun birthday parties. A fun Marvel party for Charlie. And a Wild One year old birthday for Mr. Simon. You can see the adorable critter theme here.

May and June
We took the month of May off to prep for the craziness that was JUNE! 3 weddings, 3 events, and 0 chill. A boho bridal shower for one of our favorite brides, Kelsey. You can see all the lovely details here.

Getting to design an event with a theme is hands down one of my favorite things to do, which is why showers make me so happy. Another thing that makes me happy, repeat clients! We had the privilege of doing Kristin DeJohn’s bridal shower 4 years ago, so when she became pregnant we were so happy to be apart of her baby shower! This will be hitting the blog soon.

A corporate Havana Nights themed party at Highline was actually one of my favorite events, mainly because the MMJ girls got to get into character.

Heather did a wedding at Northbank for our beautiful bride Sam. Her MOH is our old intern Meaghan whom we adore.

While that gorgeousness above was going on, KK and I were over at Corazon doing another Fitz wedding! If you follow us, you know we love the Fitz fam. We are still petitioning to be adopted.

Fast forward one week and we were back at Corazon for another tent wedding. This time for Sammie and Brock.

July and August
July was another big wedding month with two beautiful weddings. Taylor and Bryn had a gorgeous wedding at the Ohio Statehouse. It was a highlight of our year to hear that the wedding was picked up in the national Inside Weddings magazine for an 8 page spread!

Kelsey’s tent wedding at Bryn Du was one of those magical days that I wish I could do over and over. I love her as a client and now friend.

With one of our only weekends off I thought I’d throw my sweet sister a baby shower. Getting to spoil her was so worth it.

August brought us 3 corporate parties. One for the grand opening of the Short North Blow Out Bar and two with the Boren Brothers.

Let’s not forget our trip to Findlay Ohio for Lea and Bobby’s wedding. This weekend was so fun it didn’t feel like work.

September and October
A wedding for Morgan and Derek at FPC, a bridal shower at The Estates, and another repeat client with a Hall of Fame event for the Bruggeman family.

November and December
Ending the year with a stunning day of coordination for the sweet sweet Emily and Patrick. We were able to take the last couple of weeks of 2018 to work in sweat pants, while we plan some incredible 2019 weddings!

As always I feel so blessed to be doing what I love, and I can’t thank all of our amazing clients enough for trusting us with their events. We truly love and appreciate you. I hope everyone has an incredible 2019!
XO
MMJ
