Once Upon A Time…

Attention all newly engaged couples! (Or just wedding fanatics in general…) We have something very special planned for you!  Over the next year and a half we’ll be following one of our very own (and newly engaged) colleagues as she tackles the joys of planning her own wedding.  From securing a venue, to balancing a budget, she’ll share all of her ups and downs as well as offering tips and some helpful advice she finds along the way.

And now, let’s meet the happy couple…

Our Story: Elizabeth and Thomas

The story of Thomas and I began during college, while we both attended Berklee College of Music.  Though just friends, we always wondered if there was something more there.  After graduation, I took off for sunny Los Angeles to pursue a career in the music business while Thomas stayed local around Boston.  Fast forward five years and several jobs later and we found ourselves still close friends but this time both single at the same time.  And after a few cross country flights, our 1 ½ year long long-distance relationship began!  In October of 2012 I decided that as much fun as flying back and forth across the country was (implied sarcasm), it was time to take the plunge and move back to the Northeast.  So I packed up everything I could fit and drove the 3,000 miles from Los Angeles, CA to Boston, MA with my little pug-chihuahua, Meeka, in tow…

Stay tuned for next month’s installment “The Engagement” – girl’s gonna get some bling!

AE Spotlight – Meet Aubry!

Happy New Year Everyone!  Although she’s been working with us for over six months.  We still can’t believe it!  Always  with a smile and quick with a joke, Aubry joined us in June as an Event Coordinator. We decided to ask her a few questions so you could get to know her better…

What is your favorite color? Red!
What is your favorite food? Chocolate!
Where are you from originally? Orange, (don’t get this answer confused with the first two questions!) Connecticut!
What 3 words would you use to describe yourself? Adventurous, Kind, Silly
What’s your favorite thing about Boston? It’s charm 🙂
What has been your favorite event so far? The first thing that came to mind was Joanna & Bryan’s Wedding.
and why? A wedding is a very emotional event (sometimes positive emotions, and sometimes not so positive!), and I find that you really connect with the client more when they are emotionally invested in each detail of the event right down to every guest.
What do you think of our zany office? I don’t know what I would do without the random dancing, crazy voices and office dogs!

Aubry – we’re so glad you work with us and we can’t wait for you (our clients) to work with her!
