Our success follows old fashioned principles such as; do what you say you will; when you say you will; work hard; have integrity.
Two things that keep me motivated are 1) Helping my couples feel not just confidence but enjoyment while navigating the planning process 2) Elevating the entire event- across the board. Anything from helping to stretch resources, build their wedding professional team, freeing them from convention, original layouts, menu creation, etc.
With that in mind, an exercise that helps clients find originality is to use ART as a color launching point. For example the Impressionists capture color and light in an amazing way. Look at Haystacks by Claude Monet: see how it translates into a wedding theme. Want something more contemporary?How about the abstract expressionist piece below?
