Yes, it has been over a week since we blogged, but we had very good reasons. We were swamped with 2 weddings this past weekend, plus we have been inundated with appointments with potential clients. We've even start booking for some 2010 weddings (is it just me or does 2010 still feel so far away??).
We have to thank our previous clients and some of our favorite vendors for that... since we get most of our business from word of mouth and have not yet needed to pay the pricey fee of advertising on some of the wedding websites or in the wedding magazines. The fact that we haven't had to do that yet allows us to keep our prices competitive with the other wedding planning companies who are similar to us.
Well, like I said, this weekend we had 2 weddings - and they were both destination weddings! One couple was from New York, although they did have some local family. The other couple was from North Carolina as were most of their friends and family. It is so fun to have destination weddings when we have nice weather - and we lucked out this weekend because it was just a little breezy but overall, blue skies for both weddings! It makes you appreciate living down here even more when you are around other people who appreciate it so much.
With that said, check back soon because Beth will be blogging about the wedding that she did on Saturday in Hyde Park and downtown Tampa, and I will be blogging about the wedding we both did on Sunday in Clearwater! And we have TONS of pics. :)
Here is a teaser.. I got a cute picture of Beth in action, helping to carry Kristen's train at our Sunday beach wedding - how gorgeous is this bride??
(You can see hair/makeup artist Darla Stafford in the background too; she stayed through the ceremony to do touch-ups which was so nice).
