2013, you have been fabulous!

When thinking about 2013 I can’t help but think about all the happiness it brought to my life both professionally and personally. This was a year of blessings for sure!

January: I kicked off the year with a bridal show at the Franklin Park Conservatory. My younger sister who I hadn’t seen in a year came to visit, it was extra special to have her there with me.

February: We did a big 50th Birthday party for David at the Polaris Hilton. No 50th would be complete without an amazing 80’s cover band. Also in February I took some time to rest and relax before I officially kicked off the MMJ season. My husband and I went to Cabo and enjoyed some fun in the sun. My camel friend gave me a ride along the beach.

March: With less then 5 months of planning, we pulled off one of our biggest weddings of the year for Shelly and James Laurinaitis at the beautiful Ivory Room. You see more details here or in the Spring/Summer issue of the Knot magazine on stands January 6th.

 April: Although we didn’t have any events in April we were in full planning mode. My house looked like a store with all the design elements I had coming in for the summer ahead. I’m pretty sure my UPS man hates me :/
  May: On of my many dreams for MMJ came true when we had our first Bat Mitzvah. The purple umbra wonderland for Rebecca Hirsh was amazing! We are also thrilled to announce that it will be published in January 2014 in Occasions magazine! If you can’t wait until then you can check out more details here. I am now on pins and needles in anticipation for the next Mitzvah booking.

June: This has been our busiest month 2 years in a row. Gotta love a June weather in Columbus. We started off with Lindsay and Patricks wedding at Northbank Pavillion. Lindsay’s love for design and attention to detail made her such a fun bride to work with. The following day we had Aaron and Perrine’s wedding at Muirfield Village Country Club, photo below. Ending the month was Drew and Abigail’s small outdoor wedding which you check out here.

July: After such a busy month, I was ready to take some time off and relax with my little family. We went down to our families condo in Siesta Key’s and rested up. I came back rested and ready to tackle the rest of our season.
August: We had 2 beautiful weddings in August. Michelle and Phil had an art inspired wedding at the Columbus Museum of Art, you check out all the amazing details here. We also had our California couple Chris and Kelly who got married at the beautiful St. Joseph’s Cathedral and reception at Brookside Country Club, we will be blogging this soon.
September: Sometimes I want September to be skipped so that Lucas doesn’t get any bigger, but yet again a birthday came and we celebrated with a car theme party. You can check out my handsome little man here. I also had the best time planning the wedding of Patrick and Whitney. They had such a fun reception at Station 67. I just received their photos so a post will be coming your way in January.
October: One of my favorite small event’s this year was Lindsay’s Kate Spade inspired bridal shower. You can see all the polka dot and bow fun here. We were also able to help Katie and Warner with their I do’s at the lovely Bryn Du Mansion. My favorite part of October on a personal level is that we found out that we are expecting!!
 November: We had another lovely wedding for Michelle and Matt at Bryn Du Mansion. Ending our month was a Doc McStuffins 3rd birthday party for the adorable Aubri.

December: We had the sweetest snowflake shower for a dear friend with ornament making and a hot coco bar. Our family ended the year with the most amazing surprise. We opened our gender reveal box on Christmas morning and found out our little peanut is a girl!!!

I cannot wait to see what is in store for 2014. I know it’s going to be amazing with all our wonderful new clients, our first destination wedding, and the birth of our baby girl. Let’s go 2014, I’m ready!!!
