Vendor Spotlight! Weddings on the Waterfront!

This weekend I am participating in an exciting summer wedding show; Weddings on the Waterfront! It's going to be an amazing event.  I'm really looking forward to it!  They've been blogging about each of the vendors participating, and here is the blog post they have on me!

Vendor Spotlight :: Ethereal Events

Hi!  I’m Wendi with Ethereal Events I am a fun loving, bubbly wedding and event planner with a passion for beautiful shoes and handbags!  I believe a girl can never have too many pairs of shoes or too nice of handbags.

My favorite part of working in the wedding industry is it never feels like work. I have a blast every day!  I love the connection I make with my brides and her loved ones.  There is something I love about each of them, and their relationship.  I have the honor of taking them through what could be considered a stressful time, but instead we laugh, eat & drink and have a lot of fun!  I’m invited to share with their friends and family in the purest moments of love and celebration.  When the wedding day comes to a close, and they have truly had the time of their lives, I feel so rewarded.  There is no better job in the world for me than this one!

When you work with me it is a collaborative effort!  I work to make sure that my client’s style and personalities are reflected in every detail of their wedding.  The wedding is NOT about me! I work to get to know my clients, their personal style, personality, likes and dislikes, etc. and turn those things into elements of their wedding.  I listen, give advice and use my professional opinion to create exactly what they want.  When a guest walks into their reception I want to hear them say “this is so…insert your name here!” That is when I know I have done my job correctly.

When I Iook back at the most fun, unique or unusual wedding that I have had the pleasure to work on, it is so hard to just pick one!  My favorite weddings are usually the ones where I can see and feel how much love the couple shares.  It is usually reflected in the families of the couple as well.  This makes for the most beautiful vows, toasts, and celebrations.  I often tear up during these ceremonies, toasts, and dances; even though I’ve usually only known the couple for a year or less!  I’m kind of a sap and hopeless romantic, so weddings really touch my heart.

My #1 tip to every bride is plan out a small amount of alone time for you and your husband right after the ceremony to be together, just the two of you.  The rest of the day you will be pulled in a million directions by your family and guests.  Take 30 minutes minimum for the two of you to relax, reflect, celebrate, eat & drink, whatever you want to do.  It’s the only chance you will get ALL day, and if it’s not scheduled it WON’T happen.  It is a really special time to connect and reflect or jump for joy over the commitment you just made!”

I am married to my best friend and partner in crime.  We’ve been married for almost 6 years.  I remember parts of our wedding day vividly and the rest is a blur.   It is one of the greatest days of my life!  My favorite part of the whole day was seeing my husband for the first time. It had been a busy morning with hair and makeup for 8 ladies, breakfast, last minute items etc.  There was a ton of joy and excitement!  I had some nervous energy just waiting for everything to begin. Finally getting to spend time with him before the wedding was exactly what I needed.  When I got out of the car and walked into my husband’s arms everything in the world melted away.  I have never felt so peaceful, safe, and at home in my life.  I will never forget that feeling or moment in time for the rest of my life.

In Their Own Words:
“I insist we laugh! If it’s not fun, let’s find a way to make it fun! The wedding planning process can and should be one you enjoy.

Make it personal. Non-traditional.  A little quirky.  As long as it reflects you and your relationship, we can incorporate it. Your wedding should be representative of how you feel and who you are, anything but generic.

Trust. Trust has to be earned, and Ethereal will do what we need to make sure you know that we hear you and understand your vision.  Then we’ll take the responsibility off of your shoulders and allow you to enjoy your day!

Be treated like it’s important!  Yes, we have other clients, but you wouldn’t know it. Our service is personal and focused.  It’s about you and your day, and having an experienced friend help with the process”.
