A New Season Filled With New OpportunitiesSeptember 25, 2014
By Meghan Hodgdon,
As you may have read just a few weeks back, I’m very fond of all things wedding, and I often have a few weddings or large events on the books that I am helping to plan. This wedding season may rank in my top two – spot number one will always remain last summer, when I planned my own.
I find myself volunteering my time during the evenings or weekends most summers to help a friend or family member have a beautiful and unforgettable day. This year was different, as I had three unique opportunities: I had the privilege of helping a friend and mentor put together a fabulous backyard wedding; I stood by my dearest childhood friend as a bridesmaid in her wedding; and I had the honor of taking on my first professional gig for the daughter of an old coworker.
This summer was full of excitement, planning, showers, celebrations and also a lot of hard work. I was challenged and I learned many new tricks of the trade. I furthered my passion for and enjoyment of the event and wedding world.
Here are a few highlights from my summer of celebrations:
While I’ll soon miss the fast-paced excitement of the season, I am sure catching up on all the details of Tessa’s wedding and hearing of Johnna’s plans will keep my itch at ease. In the meantime, I very much look forward to bit of R&R, fall weather, warm drinks and curling up with some good books.
